It's almost that time of the year, the time when you will find haunted houses just about everywhere. Every year, Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH, hosts their annual Screeemfest where creatures roam around the park and you will scream in their haunted houses (did I mention there is also a monster dance party?).
If you are interested in a day of fun and a night of horror, then Canobie Lake Park is the perfect place to go. One of the things that are amazing about Canobie Lake Park's Screeemfest is that it doesn't cost extra to get in. That's right, your day ticket also lets you stay to enjoy all the haunts.
Now, if you have already been to Screeemfest, then you know that Canobie Lake Park has a few haunted houses. Well, this year you may see some new houses in the park. According to Canobie Lake Park, two new haunted houses will be at Screeemfest this year.
The Breech and Pinecrest Sanitarium will be making their debut appearances at this year's Screeemfest. Unfortunately, Canobie Lake Park has yet to add descriptions about these two new houses yet.
There will be a total of 5 haunted houses at Screeemfest. In addition to The Breech and Pinecrest Sanitarium you will find:
"You could hear the sirens and alarms for miles. You could also hear the blood-curdling screams from those inside Facility 235. The staff tried to cool the reactor core, but nothing they did could stem the devastation. Then it was too late. Too late to save the facility, too late to save themselves. So here they remain, not quite dead, certainly not alive, patrolling the grounds, resuming their former tasks. Radiation can exert strange mutating effects on the human body, not to mention what would be left of the mind. Ready for the tour?"
"Mysterious, unexplained disappearances had been going on for decades, maybe longer. A select few townspeople simply vanished, as if they never even existed, and those remaining lived with a foreboding and in constant fear. A town elder, left behind for some obscure reason, called it “thinning the herd.” A haunting wind, the brief screams of the unlucky chosen ones, the panic of those left behind. No one knew when The Culling would occur. You have to ask: Am I next?"
"Neither did anyone who ever visited this sinister circus. There was something “off” about Carnivus from the day they set up in the far reaches of a desolate field. The manager was a clown, as were all the employees – in the very literal sense, with garish makeup that seemed to be permanent. The incessant carnie music was haunting, the freak shows all too real, the evil laughter echoing into the night. And visitors to Carnivus? The clowns thought they were delicious. Step right up, folks. It’s showtime!"
Screeemfest will open on September 24th, and happen every Friday-Sunday until October 30th. You can find more information and tickets here.
