Survive the Night: Interactive Haunted Camping
Thanks to everyone who came out to make 2018 Survive the Night a success!
Check back next summer for 2019 dates.
Survive the Night is a horror-themed camping experience for adults 18 and over. With over 13 hours of terror planned, attendees can look forward to an assortment of entertainment ranging from sleeping in the great outdoors to being chased by chainsaw-wielding maniacs through the forest.
Once more are you, the living, welcome to walk among the dead that haunt the grounds of Scarefest Scream Park! The sinister energies have warped the usual somber forest into a nightmarish landscape. Horrors beckon and call from the dimly lit corners of the park, searching for souls foolish enough to camp so close to something so terrible.
Campers will be sorted into groups based on where their tents are set up, and from there given free access to the park’s festivities. When the park shuts down, the camping begins, as does the campers’ task of survival. Would-be campers should review the RULES before considering whether or not they are up to the challenge.
At 11:30 p.m. the park attractions will close down and at 12:30 a.m. all campers summoned to the tent area to go over the night’s itinerary. This is absolutely and without question a mandatory part of the night’s proceedings. Campers who are not checked in by 10:00 p.m. will not be admitted to participate in the camp-out. So don’t be late!

Interactive Horror Hunt
The Survive the Night interactive horror hunt is a terror-fueled race to find, collect, trade, and otherwise acquire a list of items necessary to complete the challenge. The event lasts from 12:30 a.m. until 3:00 a.m. At that time the hunt will be over, campers will turn their bags in, and the winners announced (assuming they survived).
The horror hunt will take campers throughout the 50 acres upon which the property sits, including many areas not normally accessed by regular customers of the park. These darker corners are more notorious for harboring illusive, blood-thirsty denizens of the ground and were it not for our morbid interests, none would ever be allowed to step foot in these areas. However, we leave the moral highground of such things to more refined thinkers than ourselves and grant the choice to campers as an invitation to test the mettle.
Items are to be found and/or traded throughout the forest. Sometimes they are simply hidden in a pile of rubbish. Sometimes they must be bartered for. Sometimes they require patience, sometimes quick action, and sometimes still a cunning wit to recognize the clues to the riddle. Some items are in limited supply. Not everyone will be able to Survive the Night, but those who can best the challenge will walk away with bragging rights for years to come.
Do you think you have what it takes?
