Only the courageous will survive the intense encounters with these infamous creatures of the night.


And now… without further ado… The Attractions!


Featuring some of today’s most popular thrill rides, spectacular sights, major rides, midway games and attractions!


THE KID ZONE is an area for families to bring younger kids to celebrate Halloween with face painting, a pumpkin patch to hand select their favorite pumpkin for decorating, a hay bail maze, bounce house, kids entertainment, and featuring a red and white stripped high peak tent at it’s center. Guests can board one of our old fashioned tractor pulled hay wagons for an adventure through the wooded swamp perimeter for a non-scary hay ride called The Haunted Hayride. 


Make your way through multiple night time Fright Zones where creatures lurk around every turn. Taking your breath away with startle surprises as you walk between attractions, Fright Zones are essentially outdoor haunted houses set up in open areas around Scout Island with themed actors free roaming the area. The “oversized” outside aspects of some Fright Zones often make them as thrilling as the average haunted house. This is particularly true for guests that like to watch other people scream their heads off!

CIRQUE DU FEAR FRIGHT ZONE  “Ladies and gentlemen… Boys and girls… And victims of all ages… Welcome to the Cirque du Fear!”  A Midway with Amusement Park Thrill Rides, Freak Show Tents, Fortune Telling Magic Tent, ghostly carnival sounds, souvenirs, photo ops and fun! It’s the first area guests experience when entering the Scream Park!

BLOOD BAYOU FRIGHT ZONE is a Louisiana pirate themed adventure. This outside terror trail takes guests from the hangman’s gallows through the ruins of an old fort complete with firing cannons. Undead pirates are sure to startle guests along the way.

THE KRAKEN PIRATE PUB AND MUSIC HALL with Craft Beer, Spirits & Upscale Food. On the outside is a giant 40ft air-blown KRAKEN! A dance floor is the centerpiece with a DJ or band playing your favorites party hits from the 70’s to today for special events and private parties, complete with skeletal pirates! This outside area can be sectioned off for VIP private and/or corporate events. Ask for details to book your special event!


THE HORSEMAN’S FRIGHT ZONE takes guests back in time to Sleepy Hollow and this Headless Horseman inspired area. In a corridor of ancient dark oaks lies the domain of The Horseman. This area features themed actors warning guests of the headless demon, a vintage hearse, Ichabod’s bridge, and of course, the headless horseman.


THE DEVILS SWAMP HAUNTED TERROR TOUR: With with an old lantern in hand, guests enter through the mouth of a cavernous skull on foot into this dark swamp of the undead.

Zombie Outbreak Laser Tag
ZOMBIE OUTBREAK BATTLEFIELD is an interactive, live combat zombie themed undead shootout! It’s a live action, zombie survival experience thrusting guests into this apocalyptic world, shooting their way on a “fight or die” survival mission through the living-dead.

Then your team must venture out into the dark woods, clearing the surrounding area, before finishing your experience discovering the lab where the outbreak began. It’s a cutting edge haunted house experience on steroids, unlike anything you have experienced! Availability is limited so get in line early!
