Since 1969, families have been heading to Playland Fun Center for a day of entertainment. Nowadays, families play both old-school arcade games, such as pinball and Pac-Man, and newer options, such as shooting games. Those who want to soak up the warm sunshine venture outdoors to the mini golf course or zip around the racetrack in go-karts. The onsite Bonkers Pizzeria keeps hangry temper tantrums at bay with pizzas, salads, wraps, and sandwiches.
Playland Fun Center stays open in the warmer months. When the temperature starts to fall, an eerie chill settles over the fun park and families become as hard to find as an Easter egg in a Silly Putty factory. That's when St. Lucifer's Haunted Asylum and 13 Feet Under opens to courageous visitors.
St. Lucifer's Asylum for the Mentally Insane was once a bustling psychiatric hospital that housed 12,000 patients and a staff of 700. Whether it was the frequent electroshock therapy sessions or the mysterious events that took place in the five miles of tunnels that ran beneath the facility, something quickly made things take a turn for the macabre. Stories made their way to the surrounding town about patients dying by the dozen, children waking up to find the mark of St. Lucifer on their skin, and retired nurses inflicting grotesque self-harm in department stores that have rules against that sort of thing. In 1974, the state closed the facility, but the horrors within didn't stop?especially in 13 Feet Under, the underground lab where the asylum's head physician conducted human experiments.
Throughout the Halloween season, St. Lucifer's Haunted Asylum and 13 Feet Under lets adventurers wander through dark corridors to see see the horrific scenes that were left behind after the closing. Those with a more proactive streak can fight off the undead themselves in Zombie Killers Black Ops Paintball.
