Main Attractions

Zombie Revenge Haunted Hayride

Welcome to the Zombie Safari Company. You will be taken on a tour of an abandoned Industrial Park inhabited only by zombies.

The Story…

This property was once a thriving industrial park. Due to the illegal toxic dumping on the property, along with the immoral human experimentation, the facilities soon became condemned and eventually closed. A few years ago, RK development company purchased the property to rejuvenate the businesses on the grounds. To their surprise, during the excavation phase they discovered zombies on the property. Since the zombies are alive (or at least undead) the government would not allow them to kill the zombies. They now were in the unique position where they could not continue with their plans to open the industrial park for commerce. Since they needed to profit from their investment, they created the Zombie Safari Company for guests to tour the facility and experience Zombies up close but in a very safe and controlled environment. Or is it…

Prison of the Dead Escape

The Story…

Take a tour of the Willow Glen State Penitentiary a.k.a. Prison of the Dead.

Before the state closed its doors, the Warden carried-out a mass murder-suicide. It has been reopened for society to witness the horrors of the past. Your tour will start when you board an actual prison inmate bus that will transport you to the entrance of the Prison.

Either way, if you are not careful, your sentence will surely be DEATH!

The Unknown

Come face to face with Man’s number one fear.

Themed in Steampunk, a sub-genre of science fiction, your journey into The Unknown begins with a pre-show experience that will overwhelm your senses with surround sound audio and amazing 3D video. If you survive, you’ll venture into The Unknown through a two-story stack of wooden shipping crates to learn what secrets hide inside.

You’ll encounter various fears and phobias, augmented, through the use of advanced 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!

Meet the Creators


Professor Strangewayes

As a child, Professor Strangewayes became obsessed with human fears and phobias and strived to understand what makes them tick.

His research uncovered Man’s #1 Fear: The Unknown – and he subjected countless test subjects to, what some would consider, cruel and unusual fear experiments.

The Professor’s left hand is damaged from an undisclosed accident and he suffers from sialorrhea (caused by an over-active salivary gland) which requires him to physically extract excess saliva from time to time.

Melinda Montague

Melinda is the Professor’s dedicated assistant. An unyielding, snappy individual, she is quite astute and does not tolerate insubordination.

Her sarcastic tendencies reveal themselves when she is in a good mood or simply if she likes you.

She has a penchant for snakes and prefers boa constrictors over poisonous breeds because of the slow, calculated manner in which they kill their prey.

To all of our supporters and customers,

When we designed The Naked and Scared Challenge, our goal was to bring you an experience like you have never seen before. We had no idea how quickly it would spread across the country and the world. It was the talk of countless morning radio shows, the Today Show, Jay Leno, CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, AOL, Newspapers around the country, and abroad such as UK, Canada, Australia, and Scandinavia. In its original design, we were offering the “nude” or “prude” options. Although the Naked and Scared Challenge is legal, due to this worldwide attention, it has been requested by our township officials not of offer the “nude” option. Not wanting to engage in a battle with our municipalities we have decided to concede. We are still offering the “prude” option of going through the Unknown with nothing but your underwear. We still feel confident this experience will be very intense. In discussing this with Spring township officials, we may be able to offer the “nude” option next year. Stay tuned…

For any customer that has purchased the Naked and Scared Challenge that does not want to do the “prude” option, we are offering a full refund to your credit card. Simply email us at
