Halloween is a child's dream holiday - playing dress-up, eating candy, and telling ghost stories - it can't get better than that. But adults want in on the fun, too! Now is your chance to relive Halloween as you never have before, adult style. We've got some fun tricks and treats up our sleeves. Check them out!
Killers: A Nightmare Haunted House: This controversial haunted house is a must-see this Halloween. Steering away from traditional haunted houses, this one plays homage to both real and fictional serial killers. You won't get scary monsters popping out at you at every turn, but you'll get something much more frightening -- a look into the world of real-life killers. Patrons weave their way through trials, executions, feasts, and bloody hallways, interacting with the actors the whole way through. Brave souls can have a bloody X painted on their forehead to indicate they want to be touched by the actors. We recommend doing so to take advantage of the whole experience. The sets and special effects are remarkable, completely immersing you into the lives of Ted Bundy, Jack the Ripper, and even Dexter. As you wait to enter, check out the exhibit of paraphernalia from noted serial killers, including yearbook photos, drawings, and execution letters. This is one haunted house that will leave you shaking in your boots.
I screamed so loud I could barely hear myself think! The Festival of Souls Demon Mansion Haunted House is sure to leave you just as terrified and in a daze as you tremble from room to room. Located in the Village at Gulfstream Park and running until Halloween night, the seasonal attraction features a 17 room, 8,000 sq ft labyrinth with several themed areas that include hell's kitchen, an exploding bathroom, the howling woman, and the spider room, among others. In addtion to the Haunted Manson, Gulfstream Park is offering something totally unique to Halloween attractions in South Florida this year. The zombie safari paintball hayride promises to be so realistically terrifying that one will feel convinced that the zombie apocolypse is upon us, and we must prepare for the invasion! Guests will take a trailer safari trip through 50,000 sq ft of "ruins" made to look like the aftermath of a post-apocalyptic city and shoot ultraviolet paintballs at the impending zombie ambush.
