Welcome to your nightmare
San Diego County’s largest haunted experience, The Scream Zone is considered among the goriest, scariest, and screaming-est fright fests to be found in the dark corners of Southern California. We invite you to be our guests, that is, if you have the nerve!
The Scream Zone is assembled from a collection of body parts and roughly stitched together into three terrifying haunts and other monstrous attractions. This year the Scream Zone runs 24 selected nights beginning September 28 and continues through October 31.
Scaredy Cats are welcome to enter The Scream Zone compound at no charge if you want to wait for your children or hang with your friends but are too scared to enter the haunts. There are lots of things for you to do and see, including great food vendors, photo opportunities and our Spirit Lounge bar. Parking at The Scream Zone is free.
Fridays & Saturdays:
Open from 7:00PM to Midnight.
Sundays thru Thursdays:
Open from 7:00PM to 11:00PM.
The House of Horror
The House of Horror features room after room of frightening and surprising visual and visceral experiences.
Enter the Zombie Lair and wonder if they’re in front of you, above you, or are they the wretched “fresh kill” breath on the back of your neck in the dark?
Welcome to the year 666 A.D., will your body parts be today’s “special cuts” on Ivan the Medieval Butcher’s menu or will you be scorched to the bone by the fire breathing Dragon.
Meet Pennywise, your drooling blood hungry host at the Neibolt’s house. Will his red balloon mark you as prey on the porch, in Beverly or Richie’s room, the basement well, or will you be devoured in the sewer barrows of Derry, never to be seen again?
The Haunted Hayride
The Haunted Hayride piles visitors into a wagon with an unknown destination. You’ll definitely want to huddle together on this crazy ride as every turn is a new challenge for survival.
This years Haunted Hayride takes you to Motel Hell and the “Garden of Heads”, an inevitable “Wrong Turn” leads deep into the mouth of the “Mutants Mine Shaft”, the Hillbilly’s leave you stranded in a wicked wasteland, and there is no way out of the freak-infested “Dead End Truck Stop”.
KarnEvil turns Fairy Tales into blood curdling “Scary Tales”.
In these twisted tales, a giant flesh-eating Rabbit hunts down Alice in Wonderland, an entire pack of teeth-gnashing Wolves chow down on Little Red Riding Hood, and Hansel and Gretel join the evil Witch in frantic fatal attacks on unsuspecting victims.
The Running Dead
“Run for your Life” at The Running Dead Obstacle Course!
The first of its kind and only one in the country, The Running Dead is a 30,000 square foot unique obstacle course challenge that puts the participants agility, coordination, reflexes, and speed to the test.
Participants literally run for their lives from brain-eating, blood-sucking Zombies while competing against the clock and their friends as they climb, crawl, scramble, and run around, over, up, and under a wide variety of ghoulish obstacles and creepy passages.
This attraction requires running, crawling, and getting dirty. Athletic attire and footwear are encouraged. We do not take responsibility for patron’s personal property, so it is advised you leave personal items and valuables at home. All participants will be required to sign a release of liability waiver upon entering the attraction and must present a valid ID. You are participating in the attraction at your own risk.
