Fall is here. Temperatures are dropping, leaves are turning and monsters are roaming the park at night…
Halloween Haunt is in full swing. This year we are featuring three gruesome new attractions including our latest and most innovative maze, Blood on the Bayou. We know Haunt nights can be intense once the fog rolls in and the monsters start eyeing you from the darkness, but we’re here to help you make it through the night.
During Haunt, every section of the park is transformed into something out of your worst nightmare. With 8 Mazes, 5 Scare Zones, and live entertainment, it can be a daunting task to do it all. In order to make the most of your Haunt time try to make plans to visit on a Friday night, or a Sunday. Saturdays during Haunt can be some of the busiest days of the whole season. Trust us, you’ll appreciate the extra space between you and that clown from the Cleaver Brothers Carnival.
If the lines are still too long for your liking, consider getting a fright lane pass. This will let you skip the line so you have less time to consider what’s waiting for you in that maze. Fright Lane passes also come with Skeleton Keys, which will let you into our completely reimagined Skeleton Key Rooms which are themed to 5 of the 7 deadly sins. Inside these rooms, you’ll have to face your fears to complete sinister tasks to escape.
If you are only coming for Haunt, plan on getting to the park early. If the park is open before 7, many of the Haunt mazes will open at 6. You may want to decide what your first maze will be beforehand and get in line close to opening. If you’re having trouble deciding, might I suggest our newest maze, Blood on the Bayou.
Get ready to wade deep into the swamp, but be careful, you may not like what you find. Blood on the Bayou takes you through a remote village built deep in the bayou inhabited by worshippers of the voodoo queen, Marie Laveau. The locals aren’t used to seeing outsiders, so watch your step, no one’s quite sure what they are capable of.
If you somehow make it through your first maze, you should head to the Eiffel Tower for the official start of that night’s Haunt. The Overlord will return at 7 each night to release his horde of minions into the park to do his bidding.
From there you are free to head wherever your heart, or the monsters, take you. On your way to your next maze you’ll travel through several scare zones. You’ll pass the awakened dead in Necropolis, the blood thirsty vampires in The Lair, The deranged clowns of the Cleaver Brothers Carnival, the twisted storybook creatures of Feary Tales and of course, the mechanized terrors of IronWorX.
Be sure to stay on high alert. There have been reports of a group of witches, known as The Coven, lurking in the fog seeking their next victims. You may also come across a ghastly group known as The Grave Walkers spreading their bone-rattling music throughout the midways.
Make your plans to visit now, the monsters have been planning all year…
