Q: Are people going to pop out and scare us?
A: While it would be pretty funny, no, nobody on our staff will try to startle you. This walk is all about the true stories, not getting a scream out of you.
Q: Is it too scary for my seven year old?
A: We wish we could help you, but we don’t know your child. Some of the stories can be a little intense, so practice your better judgment. For children who want to go but are a little scared of going in the dark, we suggest our 5 and 6 P.M. tour options – it isn’t so dark then.
Q: How much walking is there?
A: Our tour is designed to move at a moderate pace for one hour along the streets of downtown Waxhaw, and across the railroad bridge. We suggest all participants are able to endure normal levels of activity and go up and down stairs.
Q: How do we find our guide? What if I get separated from the group?
A: Your guide will be standing at Maxwell’s Tavern by the ghost walk sign, with a lantern, and dressed in period costume. They will be hard to miss. Before your tour begins everyone will be given a glowstick bracelet, so if you do get separated, you’ll see where your group is.
Q: I decided to not go on the tour after buying tickets. Can I get a refund? Can I transfer them to another time? What if it rains?
A: Sadly, we cannot offer refunds or ticket transfers. All sales are final – this is to streamline our ticketing and make attending accessible and easy for everyone. Our tours run rain, sleet, shine, volcano or earthquake. Should under extreme consequences your tour be canceled by Ethereal Crack for safety concerns, you will be refunded and offered free tickets to come back another time.
Q: Do I need to print tickets?
A: Not necessarily, if you have access to the emailed copy of the tickets you can present it to your tour guide – if not, please bring a printout of the ticket.
Q: Is it safe?
We love our guests, so, yes; of course our walk is safe. We expect that all guests are mindful of their personal safety, as we are walking on the sidewalks of public, sometimes busy, streets. Stay on the sidewalks, watch for cars, and obey traffic laws just as you would when not on the tour. We do not assume any responsibility.
