Welcome to the Niles Scream Park

The place everyone's been screaming about

The Niles Scream Park is not just scary, it is considered by many to be one of the top haunted attractions in the country! Certainly one of the largest, the Niles Scream Park offers 44 acres of blood-curdling fear! Unlike other haunted houses, Niles rebuilds all five major attractions each year to provide you with completely new and unique shows. The professionally designed sets and ingenious scare-tactics led The Niles Scream Park to be recognized by Haunted Attraction Magazine as one of the “Top 31 Must-See Haunted Attractions” nationwide for the last four years running! This is no mere roadside attraction! Come visit one of the country's premier haunted houses!

We put the CARE in SCARE

While you're trembling, you'll be helping a good cause. In 2016, the Park donated more than $124,000.00 to local charities! The Niles Scream Park is a non-profit community project that uses approximately 150 to 200 volunteers per night to staff its various attractions. These volunteers represent over 55 Michiana area community and school organizations such as Boy and Girl Scout groups, church youth groups and booster groups for colleges and high schools. Since 1996, more than $1,700,000.00 have been donated to local and national non-profit organizations, as well as the Niles Scream Park funded college scholarships for students at Niles, Cassopolis, Brandywine, Dowagiac and Edwardsburg High Schools!! What a tribute to our volunteers!

NILES SCREAM PARK TO HOST THE WEDDING OF SAMANTHA McCLANAHAN AND JAMES BRADBURY

Niles, Michigan (October 26, 2016) — On Monday, October 31, 2016, the Niles Scream Park will host the wedding ceremony of Samantha McClanahan and James Bradbury of South Bend. The ceremony is open to the public.

When asked why they wanted to get married at the Scream Park, Samantha said that it was because Halloween is James’ favorite holiday and their children voted for it too. And why pick the date of October 31? “I wanted to make it easy for him to remember the day” she answered!

What is a Scream Park?

It is 44 acres of fun. In addition to our traditional Niles Haunted House that will scare the yell out of you, we have expanded our attractions again this year. We have the Niles Haunted House, Krampus: A Christmas Curse, Cabin 13, the Field of Screams, the Dark Terror-tory Haunted Hayride: Night Terrors, Zendor Presents: Murphy's Law, and a midway with several attractions such as the Fry Freddy Basketball Toss, the Blade, Spooky Splatt Paintball Shooting Gallery and the (you gotta see it to believe it) X-Terminator.

Where are you located?

The Niles Scream Park is at 855 Mayflower Road, Niles, Michigan, just east of U.S. 31 Exit #5 (the Niles-Buchanan exit). Be sure to check the map for directions.

When are you open?

Please see our dates and hours page for full details. Please note that the hayride and the Field of Screams open when it is dark since they are outside attractions. Sometimes this is later than the official opening time for the Park.

Can I get something to eat?

Yes. We have several different food vendors and a dry place to sit, talk, watch the activities and eat.

Who benefits from this project?

The attraction is staffed by volunteers from more than 65 area non-profit groups. The groups receive a donation based on the number of hours they provide.

Why are you making me take my lighter (..knife, ...lighter, ..etc.) back to the car?

We use metal detectors at our entrance. For obvious reasons, we do not want weapons of any kind on the premises (that includes off-duty police officers). Too many jerks like to use their lighters in dark places, so they are banned too. Over the years, we have built quite a stock pile of things that people lost in the house. We will not be responsible for expensive electrical equipment and we do not want to shut down operations to look for them when you drop them out of your pocket. Therefore, leave all cameras, knives, guns, lighters, alcohol, chemicals and profanity in your cars. Thanks.

Is it scary?

In a word, YES! This attraction is geared to scare high school through young adults. If we can scare Notre Dame football players, we can scare you.

Is it worth driving from Kalamazoo, Chicago or Indy?

We think so. That's why we have so many fun things happening. If you do everything, it should take a couple of hours - a Frightful Nightful!

Is it gory?

No, we do not feel the need to splatter everything with blood and guts. We have other ways to get your adrenaline flowing.

Is it appropriate for young children?

This is where parental guidance is required. Although we do have many small children go through the Haunted House and are delighted, we cannot recommend it. If your child is afraid of the dark, then definitely not. The hayride and the midway attractions are not recommended for children under the age of 6.

I went through five times last year and never found the sewer rats (or the volcano ... or the jack-in-the-box ... or the elevator...). How did I miss it?

There are a couple of reasons for this. First, we have multiple routes through our house. There are more than 100 possible paths to take (although it is possible to see everything in just seven trips). Second, many people are looking for something they saw or heard about in a previous year. Almost all of the displays and routes change every year.

How long does it take to go through the attractions?

In general, the Niles Haunted House takes 20-30 minutes. The shows Possessed and Incarcerated are about 15 minutes each. The Field of Screams can take 30-45 minutes (depending how long it takes you to figure out the mazes!) and the Hayride is about 20 minutes.

These times are for the attractions themselves and do not take into account lines or how busy the Park may be.

Why won't you let me into an attraction because of my shoes?

It is very important that you have proper footwear to go through our attractions to keep you safe! No open toe shoes (including sandals and flip flops) are permitted in the Field of Screams. High heels or narrow stilettos are not recommended in any of the attractions. Please wear appropriate shoes that you can walk in all night over uneven ground, decking, slat bridges, etc.

I'm afraid of the dark and I am claustrophobic. Will there be dark and tight places?

Yes. Some areas will be pitch black. If dark or tight places bother you, the Niles Scream Park is not the place for you — unless you want to test the limits of your adrenal gland. The Dark Terror-tory Haunted Hayride may be just right for you.

I started to hyperventilate and didn't make it all the way through. Do I get my money back?

Let me get this straight. 1) You paid us money to scare you. 2) You got scared. 3) You got more scared. 4) You got so scared that we had to remove you via our hidden doors and secret passages. I think you owe US money.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes, we accept VISA and MasterCard. There is a $1.00 service fee on each transaction that involves a credit card because the posted prices are for cash payment.

Are you open if it rains or snows?

Yes because the only thing that will shut us down is a tornado or another catastrophic event. The midway and all attraction paths are carpeted so if it rains, it still will be easy to get around. If it is raining really hard, the Hayride and/or Field of Screams may be closed, but your ticket will be honored on another evening that we are open this season.

Are the actors allowed to touch you?

It used to be “No. At no point are visitors to come in contact with actors or actors allowed to come in contact with the visitors.” But there’s a new attraction in 2017 that breaks this rule. You will know exactly what attraction it is because you will have to sign a waiver.

There still is no touching in our traditional attractions – the Niles Haunted House, Possessed, Incarcerated, the Field of Screams and the Dark Terror-tory Haunted Hayride – and anywhere else in our Park, including the midway. If you have any concerns, please immediately contact one of our security volunteers (they’ll be wearing an orange hat).

Are there strobe lights?

Yes. All attractions at the Scream Park have strobe lights. Consequently, it is not recommended for anyone with epilepsy, seizure disorders, or those having a tendency to be dizzy or to experience fainting spells.

We also do not recommend it for those who have heart conditions, pregnant woman or any other physical condition that could be affected by a strobe light or being scared.

Is there any reason I should not come to the Scream Park?

Unfortunately not everyone can enjoy the Scream Park. If you are pregnant, have a heart condition, have epilepsy, are prone to fainting, have asthma or other breathing problems, the Scream Park is probably not the place for you. If you have any questions about whether you can participate in the attractions because of a health issues, we recommend you consult your doctor.

I'm in a wheelchair--is there anything for me at the Scream Park?

The Scream Park is accessible to anyone in a wheelchair. All outdoor areas are carpeted so getting around is relatively easy. All attractions are wheelchair accessible and we will have a volunter guide to help you through.

If you have trouble walking, walk with a cane or have knee/hip/ankle issues, please be aware that there are areas where the ground is uneven, the floors move and passages are very narrow. It may be difficult for you to navigate these ares. For your safety, the use of crutches is not allowed in any of the attractions. We will accommodate you in a wheelchair.

Do you have security?

Yes.

Can I be thrown out of the attractions for any reason?

Yes. Any disorderly conduct will not be tolerated and immediate ejection will result. No refunds will be given.

Can I take photos?

No. No cameras, cell phone cameras, or video equipment are allowed while touring the attractions. However, we will offer to take your group's picture when you enter the Park which will be available free online. We also have a Photo Booth where souvenir pictures can be purchased.

If I can't take my camera into the Park, can I take my cell phone?

Cell phones are permitted. You can use them on the midway. They must be turned off while touring the attractions. If you use your phone while in any attraction (for calls, pictures or anything else), you will be escorted out of the Park and your money will not be refunded.

Do you offer group rates?

We are happy to accommodate groups at the Park and have lots of room on the midway and bus parking. If you have a group of 20 or more paying together, ask the cashier for $1 off any combination ticket or $0.50 off individual attraction tickets. If you have a larger group (30 to 50 or more), please call the office at 269-445-9184 to make arrangements ahead of your visit. We appreciate it if you give us at least a week's notice for large groups.

I have a question that was not answered in this list of FAQs. Who do I contact?

You can send a message to the office via our contact page or you can call the office during business hours (Monday-Friday / 9am-5pm) at 269-445-9184. The office is not open weekends.
