This year, The Darkness features an all-new outdoor Scream Zone populated with monsters and zombies that will terrorize guests while they wait for their turn to enter the haunted attraction. The new Mega Scream outdoor movie wall will show classic horror movies. Bands and food trucks will add to the frightful fun. Visitors can take free photos with their favorite monsters to share on their social media feeds.
Inside, The Darkness is longer and scarier than ever with new scenes and animations providing surprising frights on both floors. On the first floor, ancient ruins are filled with demons, monsters and a never-before-seen man-eating worm. The second floor is the abandoned, haunted mansion of everyone's nightmares and includes a library filled with evil spirits, zombies and demons.
The Terror Visions in 3D area of The Darkness is alive with crazed clowns. (Beware of the clown that springs down from the ceiling and leaps out of sight with his victims!) A Monster Museum inside The Darkness displays horror collectibles and memorabilia and a new live action game where guests operate on a body. Fail and be attacked by your living-dead patient.
The Darkness' evil siblings, Creepyworld and The Abyss at the Lemp Brewery, will open for their seasons on September 25 and 26 and October 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
