- Trolls: Located in the park’s ScreamPunk District, this new scare zone takes guests below the troll bridges, where danger lurks around every corner;
- Doc Snooker’s Halloween Time Machine: This comedic live show reaches back through the mist of history to bring back to life some of the world’s most menacing monsters; and
- Monsters of Rock: Enjoy energetic live performances of monster themed rock songs.
Returning haunted houses include:
- Devil’s Eden: This old house was left empty for years, and the new owners are not so happy with visitors on two feet;
- Serial Neighbor: Things seem a bit strange next door. Only certain guests are brave enough to go check it out;
- Zombie Labs: Visit the park’s one of a kind zombie containment center; and
- Carnival of Chaos: Where guests are dying to have a good time.
Additional scare zones throughout the park include:
- Garden of Evil: This once serene resting place has become overrun by creeping plants and an evil that sometimes cannot be seen;
- Cannibal Cookout: Guests can learn the secret to a special barbeque recipe. Need a hint? It’s all about the meat;
- The Coven: These witches have sworn to protect their sacred sanctuary. Anyone who dares to trespass and desecrate this forbidden ground will be burned at the stake; and
- Insectuous: An illicit lab has spawned interbred insects that makes skin crawl.
