Safety Procedures for This Year (PLEASE READ):
It has always been our number one goal to create a safe and fun experience for all our guests and staff at Shocktoberfest. This year comes with new and additional challenges. It is for this reason we have made some changes to our event this year. We have created a new and once in a lifetime experience called The Zombie Safari Tour where the hayride has broken down and you walk along the hayride trail through the woods! This once in a lifetime experience will take scary to a whole new level!!
We have also eliminated some of our attractions that we felt were too challenging to offer safely like the Zombie Experience, Prison of the Dead Escape Room, The Torture Chamber, Almost Naked and Scared Challenge, Paintball Hayride, and The Zombie Night Run.
All our guests, staff and actors are required to wear facemasks and utilize social distancing. But don’t worry, our actors have new scare tactics that will keep you screaming all night!
We are limiting the number of tickets available each night. When you purchase your ticket this year it will be time and date specific which means you are required to be on property on the date and time on your ticket. We recommend you purchase tickets online prior to attending as we WILL sell out most nights.
Additional cleaning will be taking place throughout the night. For a complete listing of our new safety protocol for this year, please click on the About & FAQ tab.
Celebrating our 29th Year!
