DOSWELL, Va., Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Something scary is creeping into Doswell. It's big. It's sinister. It's not for the faint of heart. Halloween Haunt is returning to Kings Dominion this fall starting Saturday, September 25, 2010 and it's bigger and better than ever.
As dusk settles over cheery grounds of Kings Dominion, the atmos-fear will change completely as shrieks, screams and scares signal that Haunt is coming to life. Complete with three new mazes, for a frightful total of nine mazes, five scare zones and more monsters and creepers than ever before, Kings Dominion has opened up the gates, making Haunt the Mid-Atlantic's PREMIER Halloween-themed event. The turmoil begins Saturday and Sunday September 25 and 26, then Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays in October thru October 31, 2010.
Highlighting Haunt activities are the park's nine haunted mazes, five fright zones and four live shows – each guaranteed to bring your worst nightmares to life! With new monsters, new venues and new themes – Haunt will touch everyone's darkest fears.
And don't forget – guests can ride their favorite Kings Dominion attractions... in the darkest dead of night.
