  • 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.
  • 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 14 and 28 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.
