Once the sun goes down the night begins to take over and transforms the park. The midways become full of the living dead, ready to scare the pants off of anyone who dares to cross their path. Our lineup of exclusive and nail-baiting haunted houses will be sure to leave you screaming. If that's not enough 'scare' for you, check out our thrilling roller coasters, in the dark! Watch as the park transforms from "Thrills by Day" to "Fright by Night."
