Haunted houses

  • Circus of the Damned (NEW): The evil ringmaster is on the hunt for new performers. Avoid his condemned crew and escape the big top before you’re forced to rejoin them.
  • Area 64 Alien Outbreak (NEW): After sneaking through the fence, you will need to evade lethal security, mad scientists, and terrifying extraterrestrials who refuse to be contained.
  • Nightmare Experiment: You are the subject of a secret, an experimental project run amok. Find safety before The Doctor finds you.
  • Death Water Bayou: Escape the black, murky waters of your nightmares only to fall under the curse of the evil Swamp Witch.
  • Simon’s Slaughterhouse: An abandoned meat-packing plant with a sordid history serves up your worst fears.


  • Carnival of Chaos (NEW): Just outside of the Circus of the Damned, disgruntled carnies and sideshow clowns that haunt the midway, and specialty performers who’d kill to make it to the big time.
  • Vampire Underground (NEW): humans and vampires can peacefully co-exist… or can they? Enjoy a sinfully delicious libation at the Blood Moon Bar and find out whether the night will end in fantasy or a bloody nightmare.

Scare zones

  • Clown Gauntlet (NEW): The merciless clowns have been banished by the ringmaster and are looking for victims to start their own maniacal circus. Chainsaws in hand, the clowns’ audition those they deem worthy and terrify those who don’t quite make the “cut”.
  • Sea of Souls (NEW): Their allure is powerful. Their motives are terrifying. Steer clear…this is one call you don’t want to answer.
  • Deadly Toys: Their allure is powerful. Their motives are terrifying. Steer clear…this is one call you don’t want to answer.
  • Graveyard: There are evils that can’t stay buried forever. Some of this cemetery’s long-term guests are dying to meet you.
  • La Llorona: a deadly beauty who wanders here, dragging victims to a watery grave.
  • The Haunting: This forest is not what it seems. Evil is watching…hiding in plain sight. You’ll need more than luck to avoid being taken.
