The time has come. Before we know it the leaves will be changing, the air will be crisp, and the gates to Scarywood will open once again. People from all over our region drive miles and miles just to be face to face with some of their greatest fears. Scarywood is gearing up again for another frightful season, with a whole new haunt in the works. A curse has been released, and you have been warned.

What Is It?

Scarywood is one of the largest haunted attractions in our region and is one of a kind. After the Silverwood Season ends, the park gets transformed into a haunted nightmare. Spider webs, hay bales, scarecrows, and fog as far as the eye can see. Scarywood consists of haunted attractions, 7 scare zones, and most of Silverwood’s signature rides in the dark. Try to survive the night because you’ll be lucky to make it out alive.

Opening Night

It’s only August, and the questions about Scarywood have already been flooding in. We know that many of you have been looking forward to this for a long time, but just know that opening night is around the corner. Opening weekend this season will be September 28th and 29th, 2018. We will continue to be open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays throughout October until the 27th. But to beat the crowds, try coming at the beginning of the season.

Thursdays 7:00 pm to 11 pm
Fridays and Saturdays 7:00 pm to 12 am

What’s New

For the first time, Scarywood visitors will be able to explore the Valley of the Queens in the Pharaoh’s Curse attraction. Those who have robbed the scared splendors of the ancient Egyptian corridors have awakened the legion of the dead and all who enter the sacred tomb will forever be punished by the wrath of the undead. Torment and misery will come to those that trespass. You have been warned.

Spooky Treats

One of the best parts of Fall is all the food! Caramel apples, kettle corn, hot chocolate, and funnel cakes are just some of the killer treats that you can find. We also offer cotton candy, cookies, brownies, rice krispy treats, and licorice. If you wanted to grab some dinner before the treats, we have transformed some of our usual food vendors into spooky stations. You can grab pizza at Purgatory Pizza, cheese quesadilla at Dead End Café, as well as hot dogs and chicken strips throughout the scare zones. Be careful with that bite, it might be your last.

    Will the train be operating during Scarywood this year? It was a huge disappointment it wasn’t last year.

      The train will not be operating this season. We had to many complications and complaints with that attraction. We have a new attraction this year, along with a haunted NEW magic show featuring Nick Norton.
