Haunted House       
                                    Ages 7-12

In its heyday, this traveling carnival boasted a dreamy, magical world – rides, arcades, performers, games, even live animals! But over the years Dreamy-Land has become a nightmare…meant only for die-hard amusement park fans.

Fri and Sat, Oct 19, 20, 26, 27                 6pm-11pm

Thurs, Oct 25 LITE NITE (ages 5-12)      5pm-9pm
(less scary version of the Haunted House)

Advance $6 per person; $9 per person beginning Oct. 6. Adults MUST purchase a reservation with their kids.

Reservations on sale September 15. Limited availability. Reserve your spot early! Unlike other haunted houses, we use a reservation system, rather than make you wait standing in line for hours with your kids. This also means we take smaller groups at one time. It’s a special experience for each group, who get their own “tour.” See FAQ's above for complete details.
