Carowinds – SCarowinds Halloween Haunt


When darkness falls, fear rises and this year SCarowinds, the premiere Halloween attraction of the Carolinas, is more frightening than ever. The fun begins on Saturday, September 14 and continues on weekend nights through October 27.

Now in its fourteenth year, SCarowinds Halloween Haunt features 12 haunted attractions including:  London Terror, can you survive the murderous streets of this historic city? Scary Tales a dark and twisted version of  Grimm’s childhood tales, and Zombie High where freshmen are fresh meat and Seniors are dying to get out!

Adding to the horror and delight, over 500 monsters, vampires and ghouls roaming the park to horrify guests on behalf of the Overlord, the menacing ruler of SCarowinds.  Never fear, three live shows are guaranteed to rock the fright away, along with the chance to ride for your life in complete darkness on SCarowinds’ spine tingling rollercoasters and rides.

“SCarowinds Halloween Haunt continues to grow larger and more lurid every year as we’ve developed it into the premier Halloween event in the Carolinas,” said Bart Kinzel, Vice President and General Manager of Carowinds.  “The goal each year is to exceed our guest’s expectations.  With the addition of 3 NEW Haunted attractions there will certainly be the opportunity to send guests home afraid to sleep through the night after their visit!”

SCarowinds Halloween Haunt operates on select nights from September 14 – October 27 from 7 p.m. to midnight and special late night haunting until 1 a.m. on Oct.19th and 26th.  Online tickets are available at for as low as $26.99 depending on your night of visit.
