Q: IS IT SCARY?
A: Our name is Scarefest Scream Park and we are a haunted attraction so we like to scare. There are many different activities available to choose from at the park and every person has a different threshold of fear so each person’s experience is unique. Scarefest prides itself on having an experience for every fear level. Our haunted hayride is intended to be a family-friendly experience, while the forest walk and maze are mid-level scares, and the haunted house has the most intense scares.
Q: HOW LONG IS THE WAIT?
A: During September the wait is usually short. In October and the closer we get to Halloween the busier the park will be. The best way to avoid long lines is to come early or on a Sunday that the park is open, but if you must come on our busiest nights and don’t want to wait, get to the park right before we open. Additionally, speedpass upgrades are available at the ticket booth or you may purchase an All Inclusive VIP speedpass either online or at the ticket booth. To purchase tickets online click HERE.
