One of the Scariest Places on Earth – Travel Channel
Take a tour with the Zombie Safari Company. It’s the Zombie version of Jurassic Park. Now you can join the security team to insure the safety of the passengers. Be warned, there is an area of the tour where the Zombies are particularly restless and if you choose this option, you'll be given a gun to protect fellow passengers.
New for 2014! The Zombie Paintball Hayride is a new interactive themed area that is part of The Zombie Revenge Haunted Hayride. You may choose to ride as a rider without a gun or with a gun for an additional fee of $10 for use of gun and paintballs.
You will be given a flag football belt that represents your Brain, Heart, and Entrails. Run for your life through the hayride trails that are filled with Zombies that will try to eat your vital organs (capture your flags).
The Zombie Night Run has two waves each night. The first is at 7:00 PM and the second is at the end of the evening. There are no obstacles or mud (just lots of zombies!) Not a runner? No problem as long as you keep moving!
Created by Professor Strangeways and his dedicated assistant Malinda Montague, your journey into the Unknown will overwhelm your senses! Themed in Steampunk, you’ll encounter various fears and phobias augmented through the use of advance audio and 3D video technology. This haunted house is like no other in the world! But be warned, it is said the creators will stop at nothing to better understand what scares you!
Not scary enough for you? Then experience The Unknown with almost zero protection by taking the “Almost” Naked and Scared Challenge. If you’re brave enough, you can tour The Unknown in nothing but your underwear! This will heighten your vulnerability allowing the creators to take fear to a whole new level!
Please Note: The Almost Naked and Scared Challenge is an internationally recognized EXTREME haunted house experience. It is only available at the end of the evening after all guests have gone through the attraction in the regular option. You must be 18 years of age or older and must sign a waiver. You will enter with your group only. Limited tickets available each night. Security located throughout the attraction for your safety.
Take a tour through the now condemned Willow Glen State Penitentiary a.k.a Prison of the Dead. This massive 50,000 square foot mega haunted house is one of the largest in the East Coast! The facility was closed when they discovered the inhumane torture of the prisoners.
Prior to its closing Warden Shervon carried out the largest mass-murder suicide in the country leaving all the prisoners, guards, and the warden himself dead. It has been reopened for society to witness the horrors of the past. It is rumored the souls of the guards will mistake you for inmates and will try to incarcerate you while the souls of the prisoners will mistake you for guards and try to seek revenge. Either way, if you are not careful, your sentence will surely be DEATH!
Your tour will begin when you board an actual prison inmate bus that will transport you to the entrance of the Prison. How does it end? Come see for yourself
You will be transformed into a Zombie, taken to the Prison then stationed throughout the Prison where your instincts will take over infecting Visitors with the living dead virus.
The Zombie Experience tickets are limited and are sold on a first come basis.
More than just a haunted house, Shocktoberfest is a 27 acre Screampark loaded with activities for the whole night. Play games, enjoy some delicious food such as fresh cut French Fries, Funnel Cakes, Burgers, Pizza and Steak Sandwiches. And did we mention we have REAL restrooms!! No porta-potties here. But beware of the Scare Zones as there is no safe place at Shocktoberfest!!!
The Zombie Mud Run is the most amazing, heart pounding, adrenaline producing mud run you’ve ever experienced! The race course is complete with natural and man-made obstacles. To add an extra degree of challenge (and fun), we have added Zombies! You may sign up as a Human or a Zombie. The Humans run the race with a flag football belt. These three flags represent your vital organs. Zombies are stationed along the race course trying to eat your vital organs (capture your flags). If you finish the race with one or more of your flags, you survive. If Zombies capture all of your flags, you are infected with the living dead virus (or at least don’t win the race). Whether you survive or get infected, you are guaranteed to have a great time at the all-day Human Salvation Party!
