Haunt features 12 haunted attractions including:
, can you survive the murderous streets of this historic city?
a dark and twisted version of Grimm's childhood tales, and
where freshmen are fresh meat and Seniors are dying to get out!
Adding to the horror and delight, over 500 monsters, vampires and ghouls roaming the park to horrify guests on behalf of the Overlord, the menacing ruler of SCarowinds. Never fear, three live shows are guaranteed to rock the fright away, along with the chance to ride for your life in complete darkness on SCarowinds' spine tingling rollercoasters and rides.

event in the Carolinas," said
