Here is their explanation why they use tour guides: “Yes we have Guides and have had them for 43 years! Other haunts have told us we need to drop the guides so we can put way more people through. Well we just can’t do it. Our guides are part of the show and want to make sure you have a great time at Boogerwoods from the front of the group to the back. They get you involved in every scene. Yes we could put 3 times more through without guides, but we would rather give you a complete show.“
