Q: How long does it take to go through both attractions?

A: That depends on many factors; you go through at your own pace so the length of experience varies from group to group.

Q: What sized group can enter at the same time?

A: All of the attractions at Folklore are designed for groups of 6 or less. Larger groups will not be allowed in together. If your group is larger than 6 people, it will be split and admitted in multiple groups. More than 6 people in a group may ruin the experience for your group. Catching up with the group in front of you should be avoided at all costs. Groups with less than 6 people may make the attraction more intense.

Q: Are the actors/monsters allowed to touch us?
