  • Mad Hatter Tea Party
    Swan House
    Scare Factor: 1
    Welcome to a wonderland of the whacky and whimsical. You have shrunk down in size since going down the rabbit hole, and giant-sized games await. Try your hand at flamingo croquet, tea party games, bowling, ski ball, and much more. The white rabbit is serving up cotton candy, and the door mouse loves to share her popcorn.
  • The Brothers Grinman House
    Swan House
    Scare Factor: 3
    Would you enter a house that is haunted by the horrible imaginations of the two brothers who lived there? The Brothers Grinman never expected their tales to take on a life of their own—much less take over their ancestral mansion. Villains from the fairy tales you think you know wander the halls, always looking for the next hero or heroine to trick and deceive.
  • Garden of the Red Queen
    Swan Garden
    Scare Factor: 4
    Off with their heads! Be careful as you enter the Red Queen’s domain—guards lurk behind every corner, and the Queen does not suffer trespassers.
  • A Victorian Horror Story
    Smith Family Farm
    Scare Factor: 5
    When page becomes flesh, nightmares awaken! Villains and victims from Victorian literature do not rest after dark, so be careful where you venture or you might just become the latest chapter in these terrifying tales.
  • The End
    Wood Family Cabin
    Scare Factor: 5
    Once upon a time… fairy tales ended with their happily-ever-afters. Or did they? Enter an enchanted forest, but beware – many who enter do not return.
