Fright Fest at The Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom

Sunday, Sep 29, 2019 from 12:00pm to 8:00pm


New For 2019

Do the scariest stories tell you everything up front? NO. Does the jack-in-the-box pop out on the first turn of the handle? NO. Well, we're not telling you everything...yet. Good things come to those who wait. And by "good" we mean "horrifying."

Route 666 - Take a one way trip on the highway to Hell.
Infested - Avoid the webs, no matter what.
Dark Oaks Cemetery - Can you make it out alive?
Dance Macabre - Dance your life away.
The classic monsters of your nightmares dance the night away in our new rocking show, Dance Macabre. Our haunt inspired show will fill the night with music and dance pushed to 11 to wake the dead.

Haunted Attractions:

If you get lost, no one can hear you scream!

Only the bravest of souls date to enter our haunted mazes. You'll be blindsided by darkness as you find your way through the labyrinth all while being hunted -- never knowing what is around the next corner. Are you ready to face your worst fears?

Nightmare at CrackAxle Canyon - Don't ignore the warning signs this building was boarded up for a reason.

A violent tornado ripped through the countryside, destroying everything in its path. Little did locals know, something was stirred up in the whipping winds that would change them forever.

After that day, no one was the same. The change happened quickly... the first signs of AFV are lesions on the skin, spikes in temperature, defecation, and projectile vomiting. Total transformation is reached 48 hours after the first sign of infection.

Over time, the residents of the town became more aggressive. They would attack anything that moved and feasted on their kill. It became clear that these people were no longer people. Rumors began to circulate that this town was overrun with zombies.

Skeptics from far and wide to see for themselves. Unfortunately, they quickly learned that there was truth behind the wild tales they heard, often by the time it was too late and they were the next victim.

Do you have what it takes to make it out alive?

Undead Alley - Don't let the lights blind you, or you'll never make it out alive.

Try to make your way through this freakishly deadly, winding alley, distracting you with dark passages, black lights and roamers who are not looking to share their domain. Don’t let the effects blind you as you stumble your way to safety.

CarnEvil - The Deadliest Show on Earth!

Will you ever make it out of this carnival? Only time will tell... The carnival came into town bursting life and energy into the drab place. Bold signs showcased circus freaks and everything was bright and happy. One by one, families came to see the incredible feats of trapeze artists, contortionists and of course clowns, and one by one, they were never seen again.

Rumors speak of the carnival staff going mad. The high demand for bolder and bigger tricks slowly drove them crazier and crazier. As the circus freaks became insane, they sought revenge on those who pushed them over the edge. It's the biggest party in town, complete with neon lights and stuffed animal prizes! Beware if you enter CarnEvil. It may look like a party...only terror awaits.

Skull Manor - Come meet the Landon family!

The Manor on Skull Street was the largest house on the block. The previous owners, Mr. and Mrs. Landon, had moved out years ago and the house was never revisited.

As an aspiring house flipper, Jeffrey bought the estate in the hopes of renovating the abandoned property to make it beautiful to sell for big bucks. Jeffrey entered the house to begin his construction project and found bloodstained walls, rodent and bug infestations, and mold and cobwebs growing in the corners. He cleaned the mess and worked overnight to complete his renovation. Neighbors often complained about hearing Jeffrey’s construction tools in the middle of the night, but one night, they heard something completely different coming from the house: screams. They thought the builder had hurt himself so they rushed over to check on him, and found him lying dead in the kitchen with a nail through his heart. As neighbors and police roamed the house for clues, lights began flickering and doors and windows were locked. Lamps were knocked over and fire spread throughout the house, completely burning all the occupants inside.

Now, at The Great Escape, you can tour the classic mansion to explore the unfinished renovation and the fire damage, but remember—the Landons won’t like it when you try to escape.

Scare Zones:

There is no "leisurely stroll" during Fright Fest. Terror isn't confined to Haunted Attractions. The ghouls have spread into the streets to "greet" you as you make your way to your next fright. There are zombies and ghouls lurking in every corner just waiting for you. Stay Alert!

Infested - Avoid the webs, no matter what.
Dark Oaks Graveyard - Can you make it out alive?
