HallowFest Weekend!

Join us this weekend and enjoy stage shows, costume contests, and our FIVE different attractions!

Expected Wait Times

We are currently experiencing our busiest weekends!

Each attractions takes approximately 6-10 minutes to complete, however, queue line times CAN EXCEED 2-4 hours, just like a busy roller coaster at a theme park.

Food and drink (no alcohol please) is allowed while waiting in line.

Outside characters and entertainment throughout the night!

If you don't want to wait in line, please attend on a Thursday night, attend any night at 7:00 pm when we open, or purchase a "VIP Add-On" to your ticket (just like a Fast Pass at a theme park).
Unused tickets ARE STILL GOOD for any night we are open in 2016.
Please see our Calendar page for dates/times.
