5. Hellbilly Hollow

Hellbilly Hollow takes don’t go into the woods to the next level. Because of their trail ride through a wooded swamp and the creepy romp through Billy’s Manor, this place is different from all of the others. Enjoy their unique experience, Thursday through Saturday from 7pm to Midnight.


6. Warehouse 31

Warehouse 31 is 30,000 feet of terrifying. From the scary warehouse to the 3D experience, you’ll run screaming through their scary halls. They will be open for terror on select days from 6:30pm to Midnight. Be sure to check out their calendar.
