As darkness falls, Halloween Haunt comes to life with more than 300 creatures and monsters occupying more than a dozen of the most intense haunted attractions including hair-raising mazes and walkway scare zones. You can brave the fog and darkness while strapping into your favorite thrill rides. If you’ve been to ValleySCARE before, you may THINK you know the drill. But, beware – we may have some new tricks (no treats) up our sleeve that are sure to give you goosebumps. With new shows, Scare Zones, and experiences get ready for the fright of your life. Here is what else is new for this year’s Halloween Haunt…
Blood on the Boundary Waters
Wander through the five decaying, late 1800’s cabins at the boundary waters… if you dare! Each cabin speaks of dark secrets and horrible deeds performed by a unique homeowner who will be waiting anxiously for your arrival. Choose the cabin of the lumberjack, who has fallen under the spell of a demon, and discover dank and mysterious smells as they infiltrate your nostrils, and sharp blades and saws threaten you at every turn, covered in, what appears to be, fresh blood. Or enter the cabin belonging to the taxidermist who no longer limits his kills to that of beavers, squirrels, and foxes. His tastes for prey have gotten larger and more profitable. Better watch your back - those who venture too close to these cabins have heard their ghostly footsteps!
While wandering through Blood on the Boundary Waters, you may come across a decrepit cabin where the unsettling sound of backwoods music fills the air. Keep an eye out for the members of Uncle Muskrat's rag-tag band. Their dark, deep, unsettling music is as mesmerizing as it is disturbing.
Grab a seat at Hypnotic for a hypnosis show that will either have you laughing tears in your seat to clucking like a chicken on stage. This fun, fast-paced, and hilarious show is designed to generate audience participation. Hypnotic participants will be hypnotized into a trance and that is when the fun begins! Our hosts will bring participants to a heightened awareness that will have them believing they are a chicken or taking a bath in a tub of money. This show is just as fun for the audience as it is for the participants. Watch your friends and family members do the unthinkable.
Feast your eyes on this dark variety show that will take you back in time to a French Masquerade. Dark horrors await you as you enter the world of masked madness so be prepared to encounter a twisted contortionist, a crazed juggler, a hula hoop dancer and so much more – you won’t be able to believe your eyes.
Darkness Awaits – enter at your own risk…
