City Park in New Orleans Hosting 14-Acre ‘Scout Island Scream Park’ in October
If you want to get your scream on this Halloween season, then perhaps a trip to New Orleans is the ticket for you.
New Orleans City Park and The Mortuary Haunted Mansion are putting on a new fright festival called Scout Island Scream Park.
For select days in October, Scout Island, a 14-acre wooded area located in the park, will be transformed into a land of terror.
It will be a self-guided, lantern-lit stroll through ghoul-infested woods, a laser shoot-out with rampaging zombies, and a circus of crazed clowns, among several other scare adventures along the way.
The park will also have activities for all ages. The little ones can enjoy the pumpkin patch, hayride and Scare Free Kid Zone.
The entire Scream Park project cost roughly $2 million to put together.
Tickets to the Scout Island alone are $15 (with extra a la carte prices for individual activities). If you want to access all the activities, those tickets are $49 and no-waiting VIP tickets are $79.
Discount tickets are available until October 1 at the Scream Park website. Right now general admission tickets are $13 and unlimited all-access passes are $39.
