Celebrating its 12th year of scares, Sugar Sand Park’s Shriek Week is back with two weekends of Halloween fun and entertainment for the whole family. Join us Fridays and Saturdays, October 21, 22, 28, and 29 from 6:00-11:00pm, and a special “Lite Nite” on Thursday, October 27 from 5:00-9:00pm.
Redesigned each year, our Shriek Week themed Haunted House is crafted with professional effects, lighting, sets and actors. The theme this year is “Florida’s Terrifying Tourist Traps” where tourists visit the UNwelcome Center to peek in on Florida’s craziest oddities.
Timed reservations are required for this haunted attraction, which is appropriate for ages 7-12. Our Shriek Week “Lite Nite” is perfect for children ages 5-12 and will be a less intense version of the haunted house. Haunted House discounted reservations are $6.00 per person and go on sale September 16. Tickets are $8.00 per person starting October 4. Reserve early…time slots do sell out. Reservations can be booked in person, online, or by calling the Box Office at 561-347-3948.
Other highlights this year include:
• haunted walk-through attraction “Granny Grim: Alien Lab” where guests can find out if UFO’s really do exist
• trackless train rides
• Free LED lighted stilt-walking “robots” & DJ show
• Magic Shows
• Food vendors
Families can enjoy a variety of additional entertainment activities including a black light carnival game room, photo souvenirs, glitter tattoos, make & takes and more. Many activities require additional activity tickets which can be purchased onsite the day of event. A free indoor Trick or Treat Trail will be featured nightly. Local businesses interested in participating in the Trail please see website for forms.
The Kids’ Scary Film Festival will also be returning for its 5th year. Films will be shown in the queue area while patrons await their turn for the haunted house, and everyone will get a chance to vote on their favorite film online. Kids ages 6-17 are encouraged to submit their short film by September 23 for a chance to win prizes, and have their film be screened by the public.
