The Premier Haunted ScreamPark on the East Coast! Looking for some thrills this Halloween season? Come check out the best, Shocktoberfest. Consistently voted among the top in the entire world.

Zombie Safari Hayride:
Take a tour with the Zombie Safari Company. Witness live (or at least un-dead) Zombies up close from the comfort of your own Zombie Safari Vehicle. The Zombie Paintball Hayride is an interactive themed area that is part of The Zombie Safari Hayride. Join the security team by adding the paintball option and you will be required to ensure the safety of your fellow passengers by shooting Zombies if they attack.

Prison of the Dead:
Take a tour through the now condemned Willow Glen State Penitentiary a.k.a Prison of the Dead. This massive 50,000 square foot mega haunted house is one of the largest in the East Coast!

Zombie World has renovated the facility and the cells are now used to hold Zombies for your viewing pleasure. Your tour will begin when you board an actual prison inmate bus that will transport you to the entrance of the Prison. How does it end? Come see for yourself.

The Unknown 2.0:
The Unknown 2.0 is the next level of fear! Face your worst fears and phobias! Not scary enough for you? Then take the Almost Naked and Scared Challenge! If you’re brave enough, you can tour The Unknown 2.0 in nothing but your underwear! This will heighten your vulnerability and take fear to a whole new level!

Ground Assault: Zombie Laser Tag:
Shocktoberfest has once again raised the bar in haunted entertainment! We have taken the first person shooting video game and brought it to real life! You will be given a high power multi optional tactical laser gun to control the escaping Zombies. If you like zombie shooting video games or just hate being attacked by zombies, you are going love Ground Assault: Zombie Laser Tag. Please note that due to the high level of interaction of this attraction you must be at least 9 years of age to participate.

The Monster Midway:
More than just a haunted house, this 27 acre Screampark is loaded with activities for the whole night. Play games, have your free photo taken, and enjoy some delicious food at Shocktober Feast and Shocker’s Café.
Some locations may have last minute updates due to changing circumstances. Please visit the attraction's website and/or social media before going to double-check that they are open.

  • not your average scare.

    The effects for this attraction are amazing. The prison of the dead is just wonderful in detail. The actors truly make this an awesome time.

  • Not as Great as Last Year

    Me and 7 of my friends went last night, and I wasn't impressed. the Hayride had a lot of dead space and very few actors. The Unknown was decent, but everything was better last year. The Prison of the Dead Escape was awesome! Probably the only reason I'm reviewing the haunt. The whole escape with one flag was innovative.
