Haunted houses, zombie-infested dark woods and spooky amusement parks are teen favorites during the Halloween season. If you’re looking for spooky thrills and a frightfully good time, head to Indy Scream Park for an evening of fear. Indy Scream Park, the largest haunted house in Indiana. is ranked as the top haunted house for 2015 by USA’s Best Haunted Houses.
Indy Scream Park, located in Anderson, Indiana, is open for the season from Sept. 19 through Nov. 1. The park is open on Fridays, Saturdays and select Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings throughout the season, as well as Halloween night. Indy Scream Park opens at 7 p.m. and is open late on weekends. For a complete list of dates and hours, visit the website.
The facility has undergone a massive upgrade in the off-season, adding three brand-new attractions to provide patrons an unforgettable experience. The top ranking is well-earned. Leave the little ones at home, but bring the ‘tweens, teens and their friends for an unforgettable frightful experience.
New attractions include Rage 3D, Zombieland Apocalypse and Blackpool Prison, the first and only interactive haunted house in Indiana. Blackpool Prison is where the worst of the worst criminals were sent. Security was tight until the blackout — then the criminals took over the prison.
Visitors entering Blackpool Prison can explore one of two ways: by watching the action or by interacting with the hardened criminals who have taken control of the prison. The only way to get out alive is through the prisoners.
Beware, those who choose the interactive path may be grabbed, held back, separated from their group, sent to hidden cells or even forced to remain. Whether you choose to watch the action or don the glowing necklace for the interactive experience, you won’t be disappointed.
Order tickets in advance at the website to save time. Some dates are expected to sell out. VIP passes allow visitors to skip the long lines. Between attractions, Indy Scream Park’s Monster Midway offers games, fire pits, food, beverages and beer as horror characters walk among visitors.
Indy Scream Park will be hosting a variety of ticket contests and merchandise giveaways every day throughout the season on its Facebook page and other social media channels like Twitter and Instagram.
Ramp up your Halloween game this year. Let your fear factor level be pushed to the max and go for the interactive experience. Who knows — maybe you’ll even live to talk about it.
