Northern California's Biggest and Best In-your-face Halloween Experience!

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Halloween Haunt 2010 will desecrate California's Great America with more blood, terror and gore than ever before! The blood curdling horror and mind-bending terror of Halloween Haunt features more than 500 ghastly creatures emerging from the darkness, six spine-tingling haunted mazes, four themed scare zones, one themed attraction, four head-turning live stage shows plus Great America's thrill-rides and attractions will also remain open for Halloween Haunt as well. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, October 1st through the 31st, from 7 p.m. until midnight, Halloween Haunt will beckon brave souls to take on their worst nightmares.

The 3rd Annual Halloween Haunt will be better than ever and more intense than ever with the addition of Black Window's Cavern and the all new sinister stage show Fangs.

"Halloween Haunt continues to evolve as we add new elements like our new Fangs show and Black Window's Cavern, this event is in it's 3rd year and has become the premier Halloween event in the Bay area," said Raul Rehnborg, vice-president and general manager of California's Great America. "With the most terrifying experiences around, Halloween Haunt is guaranteed to make even the bravest of guests scream in sheer terror!"


The Toy Factory takes guests through a factory where your favorite toys have now been turned against you, or you've been turned into one of them, or take on childhood nightmares with demonic clowns and other freaks of nature at CarnEvil, dance the night and life away at Club Blood, tour a Slaughterhouse where humans have become "dead meat," venture through Werewolf Canyon where hunters have become the hunted and avoid a cult of evil scarecrows that lie in wait in a path of overgrown debris at CornSTALKERS.

All new Black Widow's Cavern –dare to enter the old, abandoned loggers run, now overrun by deadly spiders and get caught in the web of the horrific arachnids as you travel the trough of terror on the old logger's path of doom.


Scattered throughout the park, guests will also encounter monsters and other terrifying creatures of the night in four themed scare zones. Tortured, scarred souls will lurk deep within the fog in The Gauntlet, the deceased will awaken from their graves at Underworld Alley, cold-blooded pirates will be in search of a different type of treasure – your soul in Dead Man's Cove and crazed zombies under an ancient spell will be out in full force on the Witch Doctor's Trail. You'll be safe from everything... except your fears of what lurks in the dim shadows!


For a howling good time, Haunt guests can also enjoy a variety of ghastly Halloween themed stage shows performed several times throughout the night including the all new FANGS, where Comedy meets Vampires in this edgy unveiling of the Undead. This visually seductive production features howling music, hot dancers and special effects.

Shocking Side Show of Freaks it's all real – freakish acts that take the human tolerance for pain to new levels. 7 foot 3 inch, George the Giant and Michael Todd will amaze onlookers as they exhibit their out of this world act of torment and anguish using fire, sledge hammers, swords and anything else they can get their hands on.

BANG! PrimEvil Percussion they say music calms the savage beast - Our high energy drumming trio will wander the midways of Haunt, taking ordinary objects, combining them with their amazing percussion skills to entertain even the most gruesome monster and guests alike.

Dave Hill's Haunted Hypnotics master hypnotist Dave Hill is out to put a spell on you, but whatever you do... don't fall too deep into his trance!
