Adrenaline-Filled Fun 

Scream Hollow

If you love to be scared around Halloween time, look no further than Scream Hollow! A nearly 20-acre Halloween theme park, Scream Hollow has four separate and distinct attractions for visitors to experience – each designed to be unique, yet just as intense as the others.

Thrilling Time

The Gas Station
