  • District 6 Unearthed – Ominous fog, eerie lighting, and sirens in this scare zone alert guests that mutant villains have seized control of this gritty Lakefront section at the end of Scarecrow Street;
  • Lady of the Lake Cemetery — Cursed by the Jersey Devil, drowned bride Guinevere – the bride in black — haunts the Great Lake along with her undead throng in this scare zone along the Lakefront; and
  • ClownTown – It’s all fun and games until wicked clowns bring mayhem and madness to the streets of Movietown in this unnerving scare zone;

SHOWS

  • The Emergence – When the clock strikes 6 p.m., the theme park takes a creepy turn as haunting sounds fill the air. A horde of ghouls infiltrate the midways, emerging from a different location each night so guests never know where fear will strike;
  • PrimeEvil Percussion – Driving beats hit the streets in this pulse-pounding percussion show; and
  • Street Cirque – Spellbinding performers bring their awe-inspiring talents to the midways throughout the heart of the theme park.

  • Apocalypse – In this haunted outdoor maze, guests try to survive this raw world of scavengers trapped in a global catastrophe. Located in the Metropolis section;

Safety Protocols:

At HALLOWFEST, the terror will be reimagined by adding safety precautions to reduce the spreading of both human and zombie germs. All guests will be required to make a reservation to avoid overcrowding (as we anticipate a lot of souls roaming the park during HALLOWFEST, hiding around every corner.) Additionally, we’re going to continue adding a monstrous amount of bewitching protocols to keep you safe and healthy.

  • All team members (including scareactors) and guests 2 years and up will be required to wear masks covering the nose and mouth while in the parks.
  • No indoor mazes, haunted houses, or indoor shows will be operated; some haunted trails and scare zones will be operated outdoors with social distancing strictly enforced.
  • A limited number of nighttime scareactors will always remain at least six feet away from guests and each other.
  • Guests viewing outdoor entertainment will be separated by at least six feet.  
  • Props, rides, restraints, handrails, and dining and restroom facilities will be cleaned and sanitized regularly. 
  • Multiple hand-washing and alcohol-based hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the parks for guest and team member usage.
