Land of Illusion haunted scream park opens Labor Day weekend

MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) - Land of Illusion Scream Park in Middletown opens with monsters, music and mayhem for 23 nights starting Labor Day weekend.

The park is promising that its nineteenth season will be the biggest and scariest. It features haunted houses, trails and musical entertainment and is open each weekend until Halloween.

The scream park has added new scenes throughout the haunted houses and trail.   There's also a new walk up bar and expanded gift shop.  General admission includes unlimited access to 4 haunted houses, the Middletown Haunted Trail and live entertainment which takes place every Friday and Saturday night.  Concerts include LoCash, Granger Smith, Chris Lane, Old Dominion and more.

Season passes are available for unlimited admissions and all of the concerts.

Roaming zombies, mutants and the largest Killer Klown will make sure encounter gruesome ghouls outside haunted houses.

The Sniper Zombie Patrol and the freefall Demon drop require a separate ticket.  The Zombie Sniper Patrol puts you right in the action hunting down roving bands of the undead.   Visitors board an army transport vehicle and take aim at the zombies with a paint spewing pistol.   The bodies fall as the glow paint-balls fly.

Demon drop is an amazing 40-ft freefall experience.  Visitors climb up a pole with hand and foot holds from the ground to an elevated platform 40-feet.  You step off the platform with safety gear to begin your descent.

Also new this season is the Run Like Hell 5K, where you will encounter zombies and other things lurking in the dark.  Visit for hours, dates, ticket information and to register for the race.
