It’s finally that time of the year where everybody enjoys having strangers scare them simply for the fun of it. Halloween season comes with an abundance of haunted houses in different capacities, but a haunted carnival is obviously the way to go. There are over 4 haunted attractions taking up 100,000 square feet! Our advice: use the bathroom beforehand.
Come in through an abandoned and haunted department store, of course, filled with ghosts and zombies and cashiers. If you can make it past this, you’ll be able to enjoy the haunted carnival with unlimited rides and games.
