The Twin Cities’ largest Halloween attraction, ValleySCARE, will begin terrifying guests on September 22. Scares take place on select nights through October 28. Tickets are on sale now at ValleySCARE.com.

Halloween Haunt offers six haunted mazes, each with its own frightening theme in a standalone experience, plus three scare zones, where guests encounter midways that have been completely transformed with ghoulish monsters and rampant scares.

New for 2018, the Undertakers maze will lead guests on a terrifying journey through the stages of death in a cemetery themed labyrinth. Also new is the MaSCAREade scare zone, where guests will journey to the French Revolution but at this turn of the century ball, everyone has something to hide.

“This year, ValleySCARE is taking things to a new level,” Justine Bergevin, entertainment manager at Valleyfair, said, “With a new maze and scare zone, as well as a new twist on a returning maze, Halloween Haunt will continue to offer intense scares for Valleyfair guests.”

Zombie High, a guest favorite maze, will be reimagined in 2018 as Zombie High: In The Dark. The power has gone out at Valley High School and guests are given only a dim flashlight to lead their way through the haunted halls.

Also new for 2018, the apocalyptic sounds of Blood Drums will rule the night with an explosive blend of percussion that mixes heavy junkyard grunge and raw rhythms at Gazebo Stage. Halloween Haunt activities are ‘Rated PG-13’ and not intended for kids under 13 years of age.

Kids and families can join Snoopy and the PEANUTS gang for some not-so-scary family fun at The Great Pumpkin Fest during the day on Saturdays and Sundays, September 22 through October 28. Featuring trick-or-treating, kid-friendly mazes, pumpkin decorating, and PEANUTS Halloween shows, this event brings Halloween activities to life for the whole family.

Guests can get a head start on next season’s fun with a 2019 Gold Season Pass, on sale now at the lowest price of the year, or a free Pre-K Pass that provides children between three and five years of age with complimentary admission all season long. The Gold Pass provides unlimited access to Valleyfair and Soak City Waterpark in 2019 and includes free visits to the park in for the rest of 2018. Special pricing ends on October 28, 2018.
