Be the reason behind the screams this October

Circle of Ash Haunted Attraction

Open 8pm - 12am Fridays and Saturdays through Halloween


Featuring Three Haunted Houses

Circle of Ash 

Try to make it through the indoor haunted house of your nightmares, where everything is wrong, there are real things making those creaks, and looking under the bed might just be deadly.

Frightmare Forest 

Iowa's scariest haunted trail though the woods; come meet our monsters. They will happily terrorize you if you don't run away from them screaming first. And featuring an all new zombie containment zone, we doubt there will be any survivors.

Find your way out of Socko's "Fun" House 

Bendy, Bobo, and the rest never makes it easy. Socko's Fun House is a real maze, filled with fog, strobes, lasers and more. It's meant to disorient, disturb and confuse even the surest haunted house navigator, did we mention we locked all of our clowns in there?
