DAYTON SCREAM PARK 🦇🕸🕷
Dayton Scream Park, located at 5117 Valley Pike, is celebrating 20 years with a brand new compound featuring new scenes, props, monsters and more.
Lance Compton, owner of Dayton Scream Park, said the property he previously leased for the park was sold, so he bought the property on the opposite side and decided to start over. Guests will use the same entrance as before to get to the park.
“It’s longer and bigger than all four attractions we had last year,” Compton said.
The new compound features seven main areas with over 30 scenes and 60 actors. The haunted attraction is continuous, and Compton said it will take guests 45 to 60 minutes depending on if people run or freeze.
He said the new compound does not include a maze. Guests will walk through indoor and outdoor areas featuring box trucks, shanty buildings, semis and more.
Dayton Scream Park is open Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 29. Tickets are sold from dark until midnight for $20 on Fridays and $25 on Saturdays. The park offers a VIP option that takes guests to the front of the line for an additional $20 on Fridays and $25 on Saturdays. Touch passes may be added as the haunt season continues. The park also has a concession stand and free parking.

HELL’S DUNGEON 🦇🕸🕷
Hell’s Dungeon, located at 3866 Linden Avenue, has nearly doubled its 3D space and added a new town hall called “Main Street,” to the haunted attraction.
The all-indoor haunt features 27,000 square feet of thrills with 62 rooms and nearly 70 actors.
“What we’re trying to do this year is get the story out of Rufus and The Rejects and tie it all together,” said Fred Hearn, owner of Hell’s Dungeon.
The haunted attraction features a story that includes Rufus, their resident Devil, and The Firewoods, a family of sadistic cannibals. The Rejects Initiative describes the idea that everyone has felt rejected at some point in their life, but at the haunted attraction everyone is a “big family,” Hearn explained.
He said it will likely take guests 43 minutes to see the entire high-energy haunt.
Hell’s Dungeon is open 8 p.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays through Nov. 5. Admission is $24. Guests can purchase a Fast Pass for an additional $10 to get to the front of the line. Hearn said glowsticks are available for guests terrified of haunted attractions. A concession stand is also available.

FACE YOUR FEARS: HOTEL OF TERROR 🦇🕸🕷
Face Your Fears: Hotel of Terror, located at 1291 Cold Spring Road in Springfield, is open with three new scenes, several new monsters and lots of new props.
“It’s a four-story farmhouse that truly looks like a hotel from the 1850s,” Fred Messaros, owner of the haunted attraction, previously said. “We have an incredible level of detail in the rooms. We want to make you feel like you’re actually inside the room, not an old warehouse or Kroger that’s been made up to look like a haunted room. Our goal is to be the scariest, and we’ve had plenty of people who couldn’t finish it. We’ve had grown men just look at the house and say, ‘I’m not going in there.’”
Face Your Fears: Hotel of Terror is open Friday and Saturday nights from 8 p.m. to midnight through Oct. 29. Tickets are $20 and touch passes are available.

The family-owned haunt is a one of a kind haunt that typically includes a trail, maze, odd items as crawlspaces, such as semis, as well as buildings on the property.
“There’s a lot of elements that are part of the haunted house. We have certain things that stay every year, but we try to elaborate, we try to change things every year, so it’s never the exact same,” the owners previously said.
