You are cordially invited to dine (or be dined upon) at the Chateau du Damné. The Baron and Baroness look forward to…meating you.

Come experience first-hand the many rooms of this nightmarish renaissance castle including the Baron’s throne room, the Baroness’ reception area and finally her “bedroom”.

If not, the Chateau always has room for more.



Mangler Asylum:

Bumper Cars


Over a century of torture and pain live within the walls of this defunct facility that housed one of America’s most notorious sanatoriums, the Mangler Asylum. At the turn of the century, Dr. Frederick Mangler conducted numerous dreadful experiments on the local unfortunates. Within these halls, his hideous endeavors opened the door to the evil nature of man and his most disturbing nightmares. Some say the wicked doctor unlocked the barrier between reality and nightmare.


With lack of funds and Dr. Mangler’s mysterious passing in the 1970’s, the asylum staff abandoned the facility, leaving the building and grounds unsupervised. Most patients died of a slow miserable death, but some still linger living off the decaying corpses of the dead. The doors of this evil place will now unseal. Guests will be invited within the bloody asylum walls, which house a collection of living fears and phobias waiting to wreak havoc on innocent souls. They could venture, if they dare, into the unholy depths of the building where Dr. Mangler conducted his most bizarre experiments...that is, IF THEY MAKE IT.

Canada's Wonderland Halloween Haunt



Haunted Houses & Mazes


Club Blood (New for 2009):

Next to Time Warp


At the hottest new nightclub in town, they line up to get in, but no one makes it out alive. Because inside this devilish dance hall, vampires staff the bar and the DJ booth in an effort to lure the most edible into their isolated lair. The most delicious dancers are invited to the VIP lounge, where away from the throbbing heartbeat of the music, the vampires slowly suck the life from their victims.



A Midsummer Night's Scream (New for 2009):

Behind Splashworks

The mysterious and mythical creatures who once peacefully inhabited the forest are gone. Fallen victim to massacring humans scared at living so close to these immortals, the burnt and destroyed forest was devoid of almost all life. Only a few fearsome fairies remain, swearing terrifying revenge on any who dare to enter these woods.



Kingdom of Carnage:

Pod 2 (Courtyard behind Dragon Fyre)


Castle Carnage had a dark and twisted reputation for using medieval torture methods on their prisoners; but what could the starving peasants do to save those captured, and where were the chivalrous knights to resettle order? Bertilak de Hautdesert gave up hope on being rescued, and rallied the prisoners to overthrow the cruel tyrannical nobility. The torture which they had long been subjected to has now come full circle on their royal oppressors in a scene of carnage that makes Countess Bathory’s castle look like a holiday retreat. Let the brave of heart and noble of spirit beware: chivalry is dead.



Mother Noose:

Medieval Maze (Laser Tag)


When the Grimm brothers set out to document folktales from across the country side, they had no idea about the dark horrors they would encounter. Tales of massacre, evil creatures, ferocious beasts, bloody endings . . .certainly not the romanticized fairy tales we all grew up with. Mother Noose has revitalized these forgotten and censored tales, for anyone brave enough to see just how dark the dark ages really were; and be introduced to the chilling side of such classics as Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, and Briar Rose. Be warned, those who escape this maze will find themselves disenchanted.



Red Beard's Rage:

Pod 1 (Courtyard behind Dragon Fyre)


The legendary pirate known as Red Beard is said to have led his crew into a massacre when they set to the sea for a preemptive strike against the Spaniards; but neither he or his ship was ever found. A single surviving manuscript details how his mistress, a sea witch who was later burnt at the stake, cast a spell to keep Red Beard and his crew from fully crossing into death. His ship has continued to haunt the stormy seas for centuries. Now it has set up dock and Red Beard and his crew await new victims to help them fulfill their bloodlust.



Miner's Revenge:

White Water Canyon


When Thomas Greychild died while working at the paper mill, 200 years ago, his wife swore her vengeance upon all the workers who were present on that dark day and did not help him. She placed a dark curse onto half of the workers, transforming the men into rabid werewolves who trapped the remaining millers inside the paper mill so that they too could feel her loneliness and never go home to see their wives. Years of such solitude and witnessing such carnage have turned them manic as they are unable to die, but not fully alive. Both the millers and werewolves are set to ensure complete carnage on any mortal who dares to breach their territory.



Clowns at Midnight:

Bumper Cars


In 1857 the circus top tent caught on fire. The spectators escaped unharmed, but the performers were left behind to choke on the heavy smoke and burn in the infernal heat. The audience claimed they thought it was part of the show, but the angry spirits of the clowns and circus freaks do not believe such a claim, and know that the spectators simply did not believe the freaks were worth the effort to save. Every night, the circus freaks appear to perform their act in an attempt to lure in fresh blood until they have gathered enough to return to this world for good.



The Asylum:

Tent behind Wonder Theater


In 1923 Miles Gravestone was admitted to the asylum after surviving the curse of Slaughter Mill. No one believed his story, and most believed that it was he who gruesomely murdered his camping friends. The doctors forced electroshock therapy while the nurses cruelly sedated him with rusty needles. Pushed to his psychological brink, his sorrow and fear exploded in a rage of fury and he gathered all the other inmates to form a revolt. The inmates have taken over the asylum entirely, and those doctors and nurses who survived such actions are just as deranged as their former patients.




Kingswood Theater


When the headless horseman realized his head was not in the possession of the humans, he ravaged the Van Tassels’ barn, tearing through the helpless workers and animals that got in his way. The dilapidated barn is now haunted by rabid animals out for revenge against all things human, and the corpses of deceased farm hands roam about in loathsome madness.




Beside Timber Wolf Falls


With the Van Tassel family and their farm hands all dead, the fields of the Van Tassel Farmstead have become overgrown with two centuries of colonial debris and corn. The evil which occurred on the farmstead that night has sunk into the once lifeless bodies of scarecrows, which now consider these fields theirs, and will stalk and scare any crows, animals or humans who dare set foot onto their soil.

The Starkweather Center for the Insane has it all-- cold spots, disembodied voices, and apparitions roaming the halls. The atmosphere is further darkened by a chilling history of mass death and of patient abuse. Ever since the doors at Starkweather were chained shut there have been rumors. Rumors about the patients and staff, and the chilling fact that they will never, ever leave THE ASYLUM.





Something awful has erupted, and Carowinds’ corn field is alive. Every night the Scarecrows cease from motionlessness and indulge in stalking. Amongst the hay and rows of corn they are still by day, but come night fall, who knows what will become their prey.



Final Summons:


Deep in the heart of the Louisiana Bayou, an old manor stands in great disrepair—a testament to its previous days of grandeur. The Beauvais Manor served as the family home of the Beauvais family for over 100 years. The home was a place for the family to gather each year and celebrate their great heritage. As generations passed, the family outgrew the home, and many lost all connection with the family heritage that had at one time been so dear to their hearts. The only remaining member was an old maid named Aimee Beauvais. Having never married, her only connection to the family she so desperately longed for was the home. That house meant everything to her.


Being alone all the time draws its suspicions. Aimee was known by the townspeople as the old “witch.” Long being accused of toying with Voodoo, many people were too terrified to even pass the house. As time passed, Aimee grew older, the house went into disrepair, and people were content to ignore the old woman. All that changed one summer 25 years ago. The town faced the worst plague it had ever experienced. Everyone fell deathly ill…except Aimee. Specialists were called from around the world, but no one could identify the mystery illness that was killing the townspeople mercilessly. It wasn’t long before fingers began pointing at the lonely old “witch” who lived in the Beauvais house. The townspeople, desperate for answers, stormed the home searching endlessly for Aimee Beauvais. Finally the mob reached the attic. When they opened the door, she was sitting in an old rocker. The room was a terrific sight, filled with poppets full of pins and wreaking of putrid flesh. They stormed Aimee, who sat calmly in her chair. There was no struggle….no sign of resistance. It was as if she was expecting them.


As the crowd dragged her from the house, others rushed to prepare a noose in the yard. They slid the rope over her neck on the large oak tree in the yard. The crowd became silent. Aimee let out a laugh that chilled the air. Then, as if she had rehearsed it a thousand times, Aimee spoke these words,


I will knock down the Gates of the Netherworld.

I will smash the doors and leave them flat.

I will let the dead go up to eat the living!

The dead will outnumber the living! You will all suffer!


This was all the proof the angry mob needed. They quickly released her and let her lifeless body swing from the tree, leaving her there to rot.


Soon after, the town seemed to return to normal. And so it has remained for the past 25 years. But on the anniversary, strange things began to happen. Things in the house began to stir. The first thing people noticed was that family graveyard was empty. All of the graves dug up, as if something had escaped. Then people began going missing. Now there are tales of walking dead! Zombies who have returned at the hand of Voodon master Aimee Beauvais to seek her revenge. All who enter this cursed place, will be doomed!



Dead Inn:


These stories always start out with a dream. This one is no different. John Cole and his family had always wanted to open up a cozy little inn in the country. They scrimped and saved for years to bring their dream to reality. In the summer of 1963 the Park View Inn opened for business. After several months with few guests, John became obsessed with making their plan work.


His obsession began to tear his family apart. Following the one year anniversary of the opening the conditions had not improved. John's wife left with their kids and decided it would be best if they went their separate ways. Losing his wife pushed John even further over the edge and he decided that he would make the Inn a success. John believed that if the inn were a success he could win back his one true love, but fate had other plans in store.


Within months of his wife leaving, John began to change and reality began to fade away. He saw each guest that came to his Inn with suspicion, believing that they caused his wife to leave him. Several guests that had visited the inn simply disappeared, never to be seen again. The sheriff’s office began to investigate the disappearances but was not able to learn the truth.


On October 13th 1964 John reached his breaking point. In a violent rampage he murdered 18 innocent guests who had made the mistake of staying at the little inn. Following the massacre, John walked into the front office and slit his own throat.


For years, several owners tried to revive the cozy little inn, unfortunately all of their attempts failed. The story of the massacre is too well known, all of the locals call the inn by a more sinister moniker, Dead Inn. Only a few years ago the inn was condemned and boarded up. The old building that was built on dreams is off limits. Even to this day locals claim that the ghost of John Cole and his victims still roam the rooms.


Within the doors of the Park View Inn history is coming alive room by room.


Who will be the next victim at the Dead Inn?



The Slaughterhouse:


For sixty two years, generations of men made their way to the outskirts of town and worked in the dimly lit corridors and bloody death rooms of the Shady Lake’s Pork Processing Plant. For sixty two years, father’s ritually passed down to their sons the secrets of how to best “stick a pig.” For sixty two years they fought against their own primal nature and tried not to “enjoy” their work of committing unspeakable acts of violence and murder upon millions of innocent and defenseless pigs. They succeeded for sixty two years…


Finally, all of the killing and torture has taken its toll on the sanity of the butchers at Shady Lakes. The pigs have now become too boring. Too predictable. Not even smart enough to hide. The crazed butchers have decided that it is time to make their work “fun” again.


You are about to enter a place that you will wish did not exist; A place where your last breath is controlled by the twisted and insane. How many ways are there to die? Our butchers have decided to find the answer to that question. Over the year’s, they have become very creative.


Have YOU been chosen to be their next little piggy?




Scare Zones


The Playground (New for 2009):


Swing by to let our twisted tikes show you that “it’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt”…..then it’s EVEN BETTER!



The Cemetery:


The lifeless inhabitants of this grave yard are the victims of a massacre—an evil raid on their small colonial village. A few centuries later, and the city is encroaching on these sacred grounds. Crowds now trample the cemetery, and the dead are awake…



Feeding Frenzy:


For the past four weeks the hottest club in town has been the “Feeding Frenzy,” located in the heart of the old docks in the warehouse district. When you enter club the pulsating beat encompasses your soul and your heart begins to beat in time with the music. The air is filled with strange scents that mingle with the sweaty bodies packed on the dance floor around you. While you are dancing the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you realize what you smell is the coppery odor of fresh blood. You look closer…it dawns on you…not everyone here is human…



The Harvest:


Deep in the backwoods of the Carolinas lies a small village shadowed in secrets. Several have reported that backwood-like folk have been spotted tending to this murderous land. Many have dared to investigate the supposed, chilling stories, but those who have entered into The Harvest never return.

It wasn't that bad as Halloweekends at least compared to other parks in the area (Hershey does nothing really, Frightfest at Great Adventure is bad).


Halloweekends had 3 indoor mazes (1 for families), 1 outdoor walkthrough and some shows.


Haunt really was a lot better last year though and this year looks even better. And the best part is that the haunted attractions take lines away from the rides making all coasters have very short if any waits.

The lines for Dorney are usually always short anyway, so I'm sure they're even shorter on Haunt days. From what I've heard Fright Fest at Great Adventure darn near sells the place out, while Dorney's doesn't do nearly as much business. I guess it will take some time before the public realises Dorney has a good event.


I will admit that as much as I dislike Cedar Fair, they run a decent haunt (been to the ones at KD and CP). Although I still like the one's Paramount used to put on a bit better.

Lockdown: The Asylum (New for 2009):

Ghostrider 1

Insanity reigns supreme in this maniacal nightmare prison. The inmates are out of their cells and their minds! The bars keep the inmates inside…and the authorities out! Every turn takes you deeper into the danger. There is no escape from Lockdown!





UH UH Knott's.

In 2001, Busch Gardens's Howl-O-Scream debuted Escape From Insanity, which set the bar for haunted houses based on asylums. It lasted for four seasons. In 2003, Knott's debuted The Asylum, and Universal Orlando debuted Psychoscareapy. I feel like both of them were answers to the incredible reception that Escape From Insanity had.

But in 2004, the haunted house was re-themed as Escape From Insanity: Lockdown. Basically, the best haunted house ever. I really can't believe Knott's would use the same subtitle for a house that already has such a similar theme. It's a touch... obvious.

Lol, sounds like someone's a HOS fan. Although it's kind of weird how the names of the two mazes are so similar. Hmm.


This year's Haunt for Knott's sounds great! Out of the three years I've been going, this year's maze line up definitely sounds the strongest. I agree that Terror of London is going to have to have incredible set design, but I'm not going to worry about that. This one is being hyped up quite a bit and usually, the mazes that are being hyped up the most are the ones with the best set design and execution - an example being Doll Factory.


Dia De Los Muertos kind of disappointed me when it was announced it was going to be in 3D.. I'm actually not sure at all how this one is going to turn out. I'm intrigued. As for the Asylum and clown maze, Knott's always does these two themes very well. Uncle Bobo's sounds pretty cool and the "Lockdown" addition to the Asylum has me interested. So I'm very excited and not worried at all about how these will turn out. Hopefully they don't disappoint!

Haha wow. That's interesting.


Well, regardless, I have high hopes for this maze

and Uncle Bobo's as well. I love those clowns.

There might not be an update for a while, seeing as other parks are still getting their lineups together, but I'll leave this open for discussion anyway.


On the Knott's note - I'm definitely looking forward to Terror of London. Sounds like pure eye candy.

Mmmm Haunt. Finally. Out of the new mazes, I'm going to agree with everyone else and say that Terror of London will be the best. I know that the sets will be fantastic, I can just hope and pray that the talent will be amazing. Dia de Los Muertos...in 3-D and not in Fiesta Village. That fits the theme real well, but who knows, I could totally be proven wrong but right now this one sounds the weakest of the new mazes. Lockdown: The Asylum, I think they should've just named it Lockdown, it sounds way cooler. But I have high hopes for this one, considering they keep the intensity of The Asylum continuing on into Lockdown. Uncle Bobo's sounds great and is a much needed improvement over IMO the lackluster KCK. Sounds like another great year at Haunt!

I'm disappointed about the Haunt lineup this year. Two of the mazes are total rehashes of previous "classics" (C3 and Asylum), the Dia de Los Luertes one isn't even in Fiesta Village, leaving only Terror of London with potential (and given that the Mystery Lodge maze layout doesn't allow for many big spaces, I'm not sure how it's going to turn out).

Terror of London also sounds a bit like Wicked Woods: Ripper Row at BGW, too.


I haven't been to Knott's Haunt since 2001 (and I enjoyed it quite a bit).

I don't think that we can count out Uncle Bobo's and Lockdown just because they are rehashes. I hope Uncle Bobo's comes close to what C3 was. That would just be amazing. and as for Lockdown, though the overall theme isn't much different, I have a feeling Knott's will still pull through with an amazing maze.

Though we were all surprised to hear DDLM wasn't going in Fiesta Village, I still have really high hopes for this maze.

IMO, the tiny hallways in Mystery Lodge are the perfect layout for ToL. Dark, creepy alleyways are pretty much where Jack would lurk are they not? and the dining room is big enough for anything concerning Dr. Jekyll.

This will only be my 4th year going to Haunt, but I'm going to have to agree with what Hauntme23 said. Rehashes shouldn't be ruled out so easily.

and on the topic of Dia De Los Muertos, so what if it's going in the bumper cars? A good maze shouldn't have to depend on what is OUTSIDE of it.

I'm looking forward to Lockdown the most, only because I was devasted when I heard Asylum might not come back.
