Mazes

Blackout

In the 1970's, at the height of candy and novelty manufacturing, a candy factory's greedy owner, Miss Dee Lecktubble, was the top developer and seller of the best-tasting, most unique, and even creepy treats. Overcome by the taste of her success, Miss Lecktubble began to cut corners, and fingers and toes of her workers, to continue to be the most unique candy developer around. When faced with the reality that she was losing out to competitors with less macabre treats, the owner went on a warpath and burned down the factory with everyone, including herself, inside.

In the aftermath of this tragedy, the souls of the deceased employees still haunt the old building and the area around it. Trespassers to the decimated candy factory often say they hear noises and have experienced the smell of candy in the air. Do you dare make your way through the dark ruins of the candy factory to get a taste of the undead and possibly come face to face with the deceased Miss Dee?

Blood on the Bayou

Something unexpected and dangerous has happened in the old city of New Orleans, Louisiana —a powerful passageway to the spirit world has suddenly opened up many residents and Mardis Gras revelers are lining up with excitement at the prospects of contacting deceased loved ones or being healed. As the unexperienced are conducting rituals with utter carelessness and disrespect, more and more reports are coming in of strange and unexplained hauntings populating the region—including the nearby bayous and swamps of the Mississippi River.

Dare to make your way through the swamps' haunted trails that The Duke has claimed, becoming stronger as he collects the souls of the unsuspecting. Dark secrets trouble the French Quarter, where curses possess innocent souls and mindless demons trudge through murky waters in search of their next victim.

Enigma

Mayhem and madness have taken over and pandemonium reigns supreme in Enigma. First, you'll start feeling confused, then disoriented, trying desperately to find a way out. Each room is more twisted than the last, confusing your senses with impressive illusions, blinding lights and overwhelming mindbenders.

Amidst the chaos, faceless creatures attack from seemingly every direction—waiting to ambush when you're most vulnerable. Will you be able to navigate the chaos that lies within this scare maze and triumph over its merciless monsters?

Necropolis

Dating back to the 1770's, the land now occupied by Dorney Park was once farmland, with a portion of the land dedicated to a burial ground where many were laid to rest, some memorialized with tombstones and others in unmarked, shallow graves.

As the late Solomon Dorney's summer resort property grew into an amusement park, the burial ground was soon eclipsed by rides and games, leaving the burial grounds neglected and the tombstones ill-maintained. The peaceful slumber of those laid to rest has been interrupted by the laughter and screams of the living, forcing them to walk the earth once again, trapping the living in their haunted maze as they search for revenge ...and the person that woke them.

Roadside Stop & Chop

Welcome to Cedar Creek Junction! Old Route 22's premiere spot for Fall family fun. Before you indulge yourself in our many attractions, be sure to visit our general store to take some of our famous farm-made jam home with you – the secret ingredient is a Cedar Creek Junction specialty! If you're lucky... we'll include you when whipping up a batch.

Our corn maze and petting zoo are crowd favorites but do take caution, as some of our animals are of the unique breed and can get a bit hostile. But don't let that stop you - just feed them some of that specialty jam of ours and their cravings will be temporarily satisfied. Cedar Creek Junction is such a hoot of a time – you may just not leave!

Tourist Trap

It's the 1893 World's Fair... and H.H. Holmes found a satisfaction in performing macabre experiments on insects, and his curiosity was getting the best of him. How would a human react to this kind of pain? The solution came to him in the form of more real estate. He strategically purchased more property surrounding his original office and apartment in order to build his "Murder Castle". He disguised it as an upscale "World's Fair Hotel" that brought in hundreds of unsuspecting tourists. Now, he could do his work on his new victims and disguise it all as a hotel. Care to check in?

Trick Or Treat

Are you brave enough to visit the creepy old house along the creek? Lore has it, a coven of old sisters live there, practicing witchcraft in order to punish the townspeople who ridiculed them for years.

On Halloween, the sisters concocted a spell over all children in the community, promising them unlimited candy and other delicious treats if they visited their cottage. Once inside the house, the children were given a treat they'd never forget... nor escape. The sisters kept their promise and continually fed the children treats and candy—stuffing them full like turkeys at Thanksgiving. The Witches savor their victims' youth at their own mealtime... hoping to regain their own vitality and beauty. Will you be the witches' next victims in this Halloween maze?

Scare Zones

CarnEvil

The Clowns of CarnEVIL are a unique Company, outcasts, rejected and let go from a former show that they have resided with before. The reasons these clowns were let go is not exactly known, however rumor has it these individuals have something odd and not quite right about them, wreaking havoc and turmoil wherever they go. Serving up tricks that make even the bravest of men jump and tremble, and treats that have been rotting for some time, making those with even the strongest of stomachs queasy.

What started out as a simple traveling Halloween carnival featuring clowns, has turned into something more akin to a twisted and evil horror show. Step right up!

Dystopia

In a distant but close future, exactly two centuries from now in 2222, a lot has changed in society, or what’s left of it. Unfortunately, government has devolved to nothing as technology and media made the last surviving humans turn to a more rogue lifestyle with an obsession of who they are not.
 
Anthropomorphic, obsessing over their ancient heritage, deeming themselves deities or other bizarre avatars, everyone remaining have done drastic things over the years to turn themselves as physically realistically possible into the online personas they’ve claimed to be and match their virtual profile pictures. These individuals had been named 'The Rust Rogues.'

Any human they find who hasn’t been corrupted is an otherworldly sight to them, and some tight-knit communities respond to strangers with nothing, acceptance, or drive them away, generally with fear and noise. Those in the community who hate sound don’t thrive as successfully as those who love it and show it.

Strength does come in numbers, which has made the more extroverted Rust Rogues gather in smaller communities, each one having their own different morals, hunting strategies and hierarchies.

Within each group, they’re all finding ways to stay alive and well in the harsh world they’re forced to call home.

Port of Call at Possessed Plaza

The scallywags here may seem friendly, but cross just one of them, and you might end up at the bottom of Davy Jones’ Locker.

The Hollow

The Hollow captures the spirit of Halloween with dazzling décor and eye-catching pumpkin displays of all shapes and sizes. Visit while sunlight shines and it's sure to make any jack-o-lantern smile.

As darkness falls, mist rolls into The Hollow, bringing a still, eeriness to the once friendly Halloween pumpkin patch. As you make your way through the winding vines, you find yourself face-to-face with ghoulish, flickering pumpkin carvings. Did that one just move? Step in for a closer look and find out if these pumpkins really are alive or if it's just your imagination playing tricks on you.

The Lair

Each night of Halloween Haunt you can journey into the catacombs and tombs of the most feared creatures of Transylvania to bear witness to the abomination of the children of the night. Over a century's worth of blood starved vampires lurk around each corner of their daytime prison as they wait for the curtain of darkness to shadow their search for the liquid of the living. The damned and demonic hellions with needle sharp fangs call you to quench their need for fresh blood.

Watch your neck and clutch your garlic before you join the ranks of the barbaric and ravenous living dead in this haunted house. Only you can discover the truth of The Lair.
