Let’s take a look at our Top 5 Things to Do This Fall on Florida’s Sports Coast!
1. SCREAM-A-GEDDON Horror Park, Dade City FL
Friday, September 13th, 2019
Get ready to scream. Voted #1 in 2018 for “USA’s Best Haunted Houses”, if you’re into getting spooked and scared, SCREAM-A-GEDDON is the event for you. 6 Horror Attractions in 1 location, all right here in Florida’s Sports Coast. An interactive experience, “Blackpool Prison”, allows you to mix and mingle with the worst-of-the-worst, high-security Blackpool prisoners, who rioted and gained run of the place. It’s your choice whether you “mark” yourself (must be 18 years or older to be “marked”) to join your criminal peers, or explore the prison and watch the action unfold. You’ll really be in for it with the “Deadwoods” experience, where you will have to escape Bearstone National Park, guarded by the isolated “Tate Family”. Rumored to be insane with a yearning for blood, you’d be unlucky to stumble across Papa Tate and his crew. Additionally, new for 2019, is Bonzo’s Beer Garden, with blood-spattered, clientele killing, Bonzo the Clown serving up your favorite craft brews, alongside his “bat-crazy bar-mates” Bobo, Icky, and Chuckles. If you didn’t think it could get any better, your night of adrenaline-fueled terror is punctuated by SCREAM-A-GEDDON’s own Monster Midway, a hub of fried, grilled, and cooked food, craft beer, wine, gift shopping ops, games, and spooky firepit “mood lighting”. It’s a no-brainer. Purchase tickets HERE
