Looking for some spook-tacular fun for your little ones this Halloween? Look no further! Step right up to the Creepy Carnival, the Children’s Museum Guild’s 51st Annual Haunted House! Lucky for you, the Guild Witches have shared some insider info about the design of this year's Haunted House! So what will be waiting for you behind the gates? Read on... if you dare!
Barker's Ballyhoo: Come one, come all! Our very own Barker Bones invites you to step right up! The enticing façade of Creepy Carnival includes an array of banners, colors, and a background complete with the shadows of a moving Ferris wheel!
Not-So-Fun House: Metal parts clanging, loud sounds that keep banging; this fun house is not to be missed! Spiders and mirrors inside, watch your step as you walk under the slide!
Midway Mayhem: Games and contests that can’t be beat, prizes and carnies fill the street.
Scare-ousel: Up and down you go, and round-and-round. Animals, goblins, even our friend Martimus can be found!
MissFortune: Do you dare test your fate and have your fortune read? Miss Fortune will leave you scratching your head!
Spine-Chilling Sideshow: We have some of the most unusual sights! Far-fetched, or spooky, these characters are Halloween delights!
Carnie Controls: Enter only if you dare, Carnie Carl can be quite a bear. Don’t touch the wires or buttons UNLESS you want to get a terrible jolt from his carni-mess!
Polar Vortex: Spinning around and around in a wintry blizzard, a passenger on this ride could lose a gizzard! The passenger next to you could be real or fake—be careful picking which spot you will take!
Eerie Eats: Freaky, fried food is what you will find here. While you are snacking, rodents will appear! Food becomes trash and then trash becomes food—the eats around here might just change your mood!
Tent of Terror: The show in this you do not want to miss! There are performers and animals—some roar and some hiss! This is our carnival’s main attraction—come one come all—be part of the action!
Barker’s Back Lot: This is where the “broken stuff” goes…. Old ride parts, old banners, old carnie toes. Be careful while leaving—someone made a mistake. The biggest cage was left open and what lived there ESCAPED!!!
... plus even more surprises!
Get your tickets now and stop by Wednesdays–Sundays from Oct. 11–31 for scary good fun! From creepy carnies and scary spiders to freaky fortunes and midway mayhem, this Haunted House will have you squealing through the night with fright and delight. Prepare to be scared!
