About

zombies

Thank You!

The 17th annual Scream Zone, held at the Del Mar Scaregrounds, closed its crypt doors, wrapping up the second highest year for attendance and highest year for revenue in its Halloween history!

This year The Scream Zone proved to be the most horrific and hideous haunted attraction to date, and the four terrifying haunts were not for the frail. The House of Horror, The Chamber, The Haunted Hayride, and Zombie Paintball taunted 35,502 brave individuals who dared to enter.

For the first time, 685 souls never made it through the entire event, too scared to continue.

The 2014 Scream Zone was designated as one of "The Top Ten Haunted Attractions in The USA" by Yahoo! Travel. The Scream Zone team of more than 200 helped make this happen, utilizing more than 20 gallons of liquid make-up, half of which was blood!

The hour of dread has passed and the chamber doors are sealed shut for another year. Until next season, Haunting Holidays and Unpleasant Dreams!

Haunts

Zombie Paintball Safari

Climb aboard the carriage of no return. Your blood will run cold as you are transported to the world of the undead. Will you survive an attack of creepy carnivores? Zombie Paintball Safari gives you the chance to open fire and shoot paintballs at live zombies. It's not your run-of-the-mill paintball adventure: here, the zombies are, shall we say, running rampant and unrestrained. It's shooter against zombie and only you have the ammo.

The House of Horror

High anxiety fills the air as you enter the malicious mausoleum known as The House of Horror, featuring 12 new terrifying devious dens, including 13 Ghosts, Zombie House, Monster Attack, Texas Graveyard and the Underworld. Movie monsters lurk around every dark corner to intercept and ambush your futile attempt to run, so don't bother. Last year, 523 poor souls became "victims" of The House of Horror. Accommodations are available and with heaps of headstones obtainable… will you become another cryptic casualty this year?

The Haunted Hayride

Climb aboard The Haunted Hayride where all of your frightmares come to life. New on the Hayride this year: Zombie Prison, Zombie Town, and Zombie Containment, The Hills Have Eyes (for you), and HaitianVoodoo. Horror movie master Lon Chaney said, "There's nothing funny about a clown in the moonlight." A sudden state of hysteria will grip your heart as clowns suddenly appear to unnerve you, making your heart skip a beat or two. And don't let Doll Town fool you, the term "child's play" will not come to mind as those pretty, peculiar oddities entice you to stay and play, and play and stay. The Walking Dead will saunter aside your chilling chariot moving you along the cold, dark and dreaded path.

The Chamber

Chills crawl up and down your spine as the menacing maze does its best to keep you in its clutches with a secure dead-bolt! The Chamber holds the longest spinning kaleidoscope tunnel in Southern California, a dizzying delight as the voracious vertiginous sights and sounds manifest a feeling of edgy apprehension. Hold on tight!
