It’s six haunted attractions in one: Lockdown, Machine Shop, Detritus, Infirmary and new this year Quarantine 4D and Break Out!

Amy Hallaman is the creative director.  She says you can opt to have the ghouls of Terror Behind the Walls grab you and possibly separate you from your group.

“You get to make the decision when you enter if you want the interactive experience and you get a tracking device which I will admit is a glow necklace.  So if any point in time you are too scared you can take it off and continue but the interactivity happens in all six attractions,” said Hallaman.

There are more than 200 staff members putting on the show.
