Christmas Fear | An Interactive Christmas Haunted House

The best way to spread Christmas Fear is screaming loud for all to hear!

Witness disgruntled elves wreak havoc on Midnight Terror Haunted House! You only have this weekend to be a part of the revenge on Santa! Visitors will experience the frightful festivities that’s been unleashed upon Santa’s Workshop of Fear by Santa’s helpers, along with The Silent Night Maze, and an Interactive Snowball Fight. Our Factory is completely re-themed with a new layout, festive props, and unusual Christmas characters.

Traverse through 26,000 square feet of ho-ho-horror riddled with rabid reindeers, Mrs. Claus herself, and the vile Ice King. The elves will challenge your agility and bravery when you enter the Interactive Snowball Fight, so find some snowballs and join the game! Stumble into Chainsaw Alley and our merry maniacs will escort you through a bloody winter wonderland. Spend the evening with the North Pole rejects for a unique experience this holiday season!

Christmas Spirit is lost. Can fear make it right?

We are sure you noticed, but there are Christmas songs already on the radio and ads on TV. While our time is almost over, we have one last chance to enjoy all that we love about our holiday. We call it, “Encore Weekend.”

Inspired by the immortal, infamous words of Clark W. Griswold, “Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Halloween. No, no. We’re all in this together! This is a full-blown, four-alarm Halloween emergency here. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Halloween since Jason Voorhees danced with Freddy freaking Krueger. And when Michael Myers comes barging through that door tonight, he’s gonna find the scariest bunch of creepers this side of Haddonfield.”
