The Scream Zone
CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS
The Scream Zone, San Diego County’s largest haunted experience, opens Friday, September 27 at the Del Mar Scaregrounds. It’s 2013 and your worst nightmare has come to fruition. Scream Zone, now in its 16th year, is more terrifying and bloodcurdling than ever!
NEW THIS YEAR: The Zombie Paintball Safari. Climb aboard the carriage of no return. Your blood will run cold as you are transported into the world of the undead…..will you survive an attack of Creepy Carnivorous Dilapidated Diversions? The Zombie Safari gives you the chance to open fire and shoot paintballs at live zombies. It’s not your run-of-the-mill paintball adventure. Here, the zombies are, shall we say, running rampant and unrestrained. It’s shooter against zombie and only you have the ammo.
Our specialized carriage of carnage will carry 20 eager humans to hunt with their own weapon and exterminate the sleepwalkers who have an insatiable hunger for hominids. The weapons are filled with gooey, gloppy, glow-in-the-dark gunk that has been formulated to stop zombies on contact.
If your heart still beats prepare yourself to be thrilled- to- the bone with three more “spooktacular” Halloween haunts featuring: The House of Horror, The Chamber and The Haunted Hayride. (Not recommended for children under 10years old.)
“High Anxiety” fills the air as you enter the malicious mausoleum known as The House of Horror, featuring 12 new terrifying devious dens, including 13 Ghosts, Zombie House, Monster Attack, Texas Graveyard and theUnderworld. Movie monsters lurk around every dark corner to intercept and ambush your futile attempt to run…so don’t bother. Last year, 523 poor souls became “victims” of The House of Horror. Accommodations are available and with heaps of headstones obtainable…will YOU become another cryptic casualty this year?
If you survive the House of Horror, climb aboard The Haunted Hayride where all of your “frightmares” come to life. NEW on the Hayride this year: Zombie Prison, Zombie Town and Zombie Containment. The Hills Have Eyes (for you) and Haitian Voodoo. Horror movie master Lon Chaney said, “There’s nothing funny about a clown in the moonlight.” A sudden state of hysteria will grip your heart as Clowns suddenly appear to unnerve you, making your heart skip a beat…or two. And don’t let Doll Town fool you…the term “child’s play” will NOT come to mind as those pretty, peculiar oddities entice you to stay and play, and play and STAY. The Walking Dead willsaunter aside your chilling chariot moving you along the cold, dark and dreaded path.
The Chamber will send chills up and down your spine as the menacing maze does its best to keep you in its clutches with a secure DEAD-bolt!
