Q: Is there an age limit or recommendation for the 13th Floor?
A: NO, however due to the graphic nature it is not recommended for small children. We have had young children go through and have a great time and adults who go through and are in tears, you’re the parent, you be the judge. A good rule of thumb is if you wouldn’t bring your child to a PG-13 rated movie, probably not a good idea to bring them to a haunted house.
Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: Sorry, I know dogs are welcome most places in San Antonio, however, not at the 13th Floor; it’s just too darn scary for our furry friends. They’d probably be more comfortable in the car (ventilation please) with the other scaredy cats - err humans.

Q: How long does it take to go through?
A: It’s really difficult to give an answer to this question, some groups run right through others take their time, guess it depends on how you deal with fear. The 13th Floor Haunted House is one of the largest indoor haunted attractions in Texas, it’s pretty big, so you’ll be in there long enough to get plenty scared!
