  • Haunted Experiences

    The Phantom has new tricks after 6!

    SCARE ZONE - MasqueRage
    Something sinister fills the air as you enter the Phantom's Masquerade Ball. Do you face the plague raging on outside or the Phantom and his demonic guests inside? It's not too late to leave through the gates.

    SCARE ZONE - Monster Hunters
    Do you dare to enter the wilderness at night? An evening stroll sounds relaxing. Until you hear cracks in the nearby trees, and shadows begin to emerge from the darkness. Suddenly you’re surrounded by mythical monsters of the night with no escape in sight.

    SCARE ZONE - Witches Revenge
    300 years after their torture and trial, the witches of Connecticut have returned and have taken over at Lake Compounce. You must face the wicked witches, will they let you live?

    HAUNTED HOUSE - mAlice in Wonderland
    Will you go down the Rabbit Hole or Through the Looking Glass? The choice sends you down one of two terrifying paths inhabited by the evil residents of Wonderland – who’ll be all too happy to escort you to the mad Red Queen herself. Off with your head!
    *Available for an additional $5 charge.

    HAUNTED HOUSE - The Root of All Evil
    Dr. Belladonna Thornwoode has gone mad on her quest for perfection. Now, her once grand manor and famous garden lay in ruin. The nights bring terrifying sounds and a new creation of Dr. Thornwoode’s lurks around every corner and rotted door. Do you dare to enter her twisted manor?

    HAUNTED HOUSE - Spirits of the Swamp
    Breaking down in the Bayou is never a good thing.
    Breaking down in the Bayou after dark is even worse.
    Will you survive the night?

    HAUNTED HOUSE - MediEvil
    It’s time to face judgement. As soon as you set foot in front of the Inquisitor, you are subject to his demonic interpretation of ‘justice’. Now you must endure soul-wrenching torture, and venture into his twisted labyrinth of medieval chambers of chaos, bearing witness to never-ending punishment, and wondering if there may be some way yet to escape your dark fate.
