Sequestered in the darkened caverns of an abandoned limestone quarry, NightStalkers Scream Park invites thrill-seekers into a subterranean landscape of stealthy ghouls and terrifying entertainment. Brave the park’s frightful realm yourself or invite a fear-loving friend to skulk through attractions such as the Cavern of Terror, a one-hour journey into the cave’s deepest recesses, where ominous noises foretell sudden incursions from troglodytic monsters, ghostly apparitions, and undead board games. The Last Ride takes twisted tourists through a waking nightmare of being buried alive, and the Cut Throat Freak Show turns stomachs with an unsightly ensemble of graphic and gory humanoids (not recommended for those under the age of 13). Finally, the Extreme Fear Passes grant patrons access to the Greg Haywood Hypnotist Show, a full-length performance during which audience members can delight in watching as volunteers are hypnotized into dancing with reckless abandon or professing romantic feelings for their lunchbox.
The park is open from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. on most nights (see calendar for dates and hours of operation), allowing fearless explorers to spend up to six hours plumbing its demonic depths, which are completely underground and impervious to inclement weather.
