The Mortuary's haunting brain child comes to life this October.
New Orleans City Park and The Mortuary Haunted Mansion team up to debut Scout Island Scream Park this October.
This new “fright festival” kicks off just in time for Halloween, and the thrills begin on Oct. 6. Watch the video above to get your first look at what to expect from the scary experience.
Here’s we know so far about the new haunted attraction’s fright zones:
Jeff Borne, owner of The Mortuary Haunted Mansion, says the whole fall season will be explored with all the attractions created for the event. There will be a scare-free kids zone with activities like hayrides, face painting and bounce houses. Guests will find several “fight zones” throughout the park. These zones are free-roaming themed areas of terror filled with lots of special effects.
“It’s going to be really special, something that the city hasn’t seen before,” Borne said.
The Blood Bayou Fright Zone will create a pirate-themed experience with skeletal pirates, treasure and old ruins. The Kraken Beer & Spirits Pirate Club will also reside near the Blood Bayou area, which will give guests an entertainment area with food, drinks and music. Borne said the pirate club will also be available for private events.
The Horseman’s Fright Zone plays on themes based on “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” Cirque du Fear will incorporate a circus, freak show theme, including vintage tents. Guests can take a lantern and walk through The Devil’s Swamp, which will possess Cajun and Voodoo themes.
There are also plans for a Zombie Outbreak Battlefield, which puts a scary spin on lazer tag. Guests will hunt down zombies with lazer tag-style guns along a playing field designed like a military base.
Borne says the Scream Factory will include clowns and vortex tunnels. We still haven’t learned a lot about The Paranormal Experience zone yet.
In addition to the fright zones, guests can also enjoy carnival rides will range from family-friendly to high-thrill levels.
General admission is $13 per person. Special tickets will also be sold, including an unlimited one night pass for $49 per person.
