Main Haunts for 2016 are:
  • Terror Behind the Screen will conjure unrelenting evil in an elaborately themed haunted maze based on the movies in the style of Evil Dead series of films. 
  • InFected - A genetically engineered virus that was originally created as a cure for the common cold, turns into a lethal strain. It kills 75% of those it infects, mutates 23% into flesh eating, zombie like, creatures with incredible strength and speed. 2% are immune.
  • FreakShow 3D - The carnival is in town! Blinking lights, twirling rides, and plenty of laughs… FOR US! Our clowns aren’t happy! You’ll get a scream out of sideshow attractions, twisted food vendors, demented performers and disgusting clowns – ALL IN 3D
Special New Attractions:
  • Outbreak: Zombie Paint Ball - Are you ready to bring the paint down on the zombie horde? You can at OutBreak: Zombie Paintball. Climb atop our battle ready wagon mounted with twenty paintball turrets. 
  • Hillbilly Hell - We dare you to enter the evil realm of Hatchet's family farm. During the depression William (Billy) Hatchet inherited land that the locals called Devils Hollow.
Kids Days:
Kids Days will be less scary - think haunted house “lite.” We have demons and killer clowns and zombies. We have smoke and mirrors and things that jump out at you and scream at you. But Kid’s Day will be in the daylight. The haunters will be less scary. So if your family is up for some scary entertainment - but PG scary instead of PG-13 scary - then don’t miss "Kids Day." Kids Days are October 22 and 29 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at the gate.

Age Restrictions:
The Scaregrounds in normal operation is rated PG-13. That means we’ll only let 11 and 12 year old in if an adult is with them. You know your kids, if you think your 9 year old can handle it, we’ll leave that decision to you. But if you enter a Haunt and your kid gets scared and heads for the exit early, NO REFUND.

Entrance to the Scaregrounds:
All On-Line Tickets MUST Be exchanged at the Fairgrounds Gate for a Haunt Boarding Pass corresponding with the ticket(s) purchased. No one will be admitted to the Scaregrounds who is Drunk, Impaired on Drugs, wearing a Mask, has a simulated weapon or is deemed a security risk. NO GUNS OR WEAPONS.

Health Disclaimer:
Women who are pregnant and individuals who suffer from heart conditions, high blood pressure, asthma, seizures, light sensitivity, claustrophobia, or any other health condition that could be aggravated by these special effects should consider this warning before purchasing a ticket.
