Louisville, Kentucky, August 27, 2019: This October, Kentucky Kingdom will present HalloScream – Kingdom of Fear, produced and directed by Oak Island Creative.
Ed Hart, President and CEO of Kentucky Kingdom, said: "We are very excited about partnering with Oak Island Creative, a company that has developed award-winning themed events for nationally recognized clients. Their events have received many acknowledgments in USA Today, on Fox News, and in other major media outlets. What’s even more exciting is that Oak Island is a local company, headquartered in Louisville. They are dedicated to creating a Halloween event unlike anything Louisville has seen before and they’re certainly the people to do it.”
Hart went on to add, “It’s been a long time since Kentucky Kingdom has been open to the public for a nighttime event. It’s a special experience to see the park lit up at night and especially to enjoy the coasters and other rides at night. Kentucky Kingdom has always been known for its thrills, but HalloScream will take those thrills to an entirely new level.”
A large area of the park will be dedicated solely to HalloScream and its unique attractions. Primary among them are two original and unique haunted houses: “Die Laughing – A Clown Funeral” and “Zombie Wasteland.”
More than 100 performers will participate in HalloScream, which also includes the following attractions:
- Bizarre Bazaar - A Fear Market: An immersive retail environment of bizarre finds and gruesome gifts. Don’t miss the photo ops at the selfie stations of screams!
- Frank N. Stein’s LaBARatory: Find a cure for what “ales” you as you enjoy Dr. Frank’s mad science concoctions served in bubbling beakers and test tubes.
- Mardi gRAVE: A block party of voodoo-inspired despair where a demonic DJ spins sick and twisted tunes and where everyone will dance till they drop … dead!
- BARely Alive: Come have a drink and hang with the undead of HalloScream.
Kentucky Kingdom will be open for HalloScream every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in October, from 6:00 p.m. till midnight (closing time on Sunday is 11:00 p.m.). Most of the park’s rides, including its signature coasters, will be open. (Because of the time of year, all water attractions will be closed.) In addition, Kentucky Kingdom’s 5D Cinema will feature a 12-minute horror fest, consisting of 13 especially terrifying scenes from the “Friday the 13th” films.
Tickets to HalloScream cost $29.95 and may be purchased online or at the theme park. Beginning September 16, they will also be available at area Kroger stores. The $29.95 tickets include one admission to the park and its rides, as well as one free entry into the two haunted houses - "Die Laughing - A Clown Funeral" and "Zombie Wasteland". The HalloScream attractions are recommended for children age 13 or older.
Julie Johnson, Vice President of Sales and Admissions for Kentucky Kingdom, stated, “We are pleased to offer all 2019 season pass holders free admission to HalloScream. However, they will need to pay a $10 admission charge to each haunted house. For the best value, I suggest purchasing a 2020 Kentucky Kingdom season pass. They’re on sale now for the early bird price of $59.95 and they provide free admission to HalloScream 2019, one free entry to each haunted house, and, of course, the opportunity to enjoy all of Kentucky Kingdom’s rides and attractions all summer long next year.”
