Scout Island Scream Park
“Land of terror,” Island of horrors” are only a few terms to describe Scout Island Scream Park which gets ready to open in October in New Orleans City Park. With the help of The Mortuary Haunted Mansion, the island located in the park just North of I-610 will become “more than a just a haunted house, but a thrill-seeker’s dream or nightmare,” promises Bob Becker, City Park CEO.
The idyllic island will offer several thrill themed zones starting with Cirque du Fear, a sort “circus freak show” which will of course feature scary clowns, the Blood Bayou Fright zone will test your nerves with scary skeleton pirates and at the Zombie Outbreak Battlefield you’ll get a chance to shoot zombies using laser technology. If that’s not enough , you can go on the Devil’s Swamp Tour, visit the Scream Factory or the Horseman’s Fright Zone. After all that screaming you might want to relax and get something to drink at the Kraken Beer & Spirits Pirate Club. The project, which has been in the making for about two years, is “something the city has not seen before,” says Jeff Borne owner of the Mortuary Haunted House.
If you do not have nerves of steel, there are some scare free options during daylight hours including the Haunted Hayride or the Kids Zone.
