Other activities and attractions you can enjoy are the Sinister Scare Zones, three breakout escape rooms, and our personal favorite: a live show called “The Silenced Auction,” featuring Killustrator themselves.

Don’t let the night end without munching on Spooky Snacks and Sips and Creepy Combo Creations including pizza drizzled with bloody sauce and topped with eyeballs and the blue-colored juice packed in what looks like a dextrose.
