Horrors of Blumhouse

Are you ready for another round of Blumhouse terrors? During Halloween Horror Nights  guests with enough nerve can try to escape the haunted house that bring the worst nightmares from The Purge and Happy Death Day to life.

Horrors of Blumhouse

  • Horrors of Blumhouse: Shock shifts to alarm as you go from a campy thriller to a brutal world.

Then enter the testing ground for a barbaric experiment, where all crime is legal for twelve hours. Will you live to see tomorrow?
Dead Exposure

Slaughter Sinema

A visit to this drive-in theater might be just a bit more than what guests have bargained for…

Halloween Horror Nights

 

  • Slaughter Sinema: It’s showtime at the local drive-in, where you don’t just catch a movie; the movie catches you. As each 80s B movie screams to life, you’ll shriek with terror as you try to escape werewolf bikers, alien cannibals and a ravenous swamp yeti. When the credits roll, heads roll.
Stranger Things

The Upside Down has made its way to Halloween Horror Nights. Join Dustin, Lucas, Mike, Will, Eleven, and more as you try to escape from the Demogorgon and get back to the real world.

  • Stranger Things: From the menacing Hawkins National Laboratory, under the U.S. Department of Energy, to the Byers home adorned with an erratic display of flashing Christmas lights and the eerie Upside Down woods oozing a shower of floating orb-like spores, the chilling new mazes will offer surprising twists and unexpected turns around every corner. You try to escape—but The Demogorgon is moving closer.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space

Twisted Tradition

Vamp 85: New Year’s Eve
