As the leaves start to change color and the days seem to get shorter, Halloween has snuck on us all once again. Whether you are prepared or not, the spooky nights are upon us and Jacksonville is here to guarantee you are getting your scare on each night. This year, Haunt Nights are back again to bring you the right amount of fun and spook to keep your week a little more interesting than the dreary fall weather might be providing. Haunt Nights are located at Adventure Landing in Jacksonville, and beginning at dusk on select nights throughout the month of October. The night includes a wide variety of haunted attractions, including the Northeast Florida’s scariest 3D haunted house!
Of the four featured haunted houses being offered at this year’s Haunt Nights, Apocalypse 3D is there to make your first dosage of horror as terrifying as you could imagine: Clown Takeover haunted house: with all the high-tech zombie simulations, you are sure to be scared out of your skin! The Ringmaster, Al Stabya, and so many more will be there, ready to force you to face your fears before entering the next house. Pinehurst Asylum is next in line, and they are always looking for new guests to fill up their rooms. The crazy roam free and no one is safe. From there, take a stab at Containment, Dr. Alexander Durov’s very own zombie creation. After fooling around in the lab for years on end, Dr. Durov accidently set off an outbreak of fresh eating zombies at ViroTech Solutions. And finally, if you think you can handle it, Descent is at the end of the tunnel. Crawl into the deep, dark cave to see how far under the earth’s surface you can manage… will you find light at the end of the tunnel? Or will you be forced to ward off demons, ghosts, creatures, and more evil than ever imagined?
Ever wanted to be on the other side of the Halloween fun? Open auditions are held from 7p.m. to 10p.m. on September 1st. Actors and actresses are asked to work within the four haunted attractions, in addition to the scare zone. Whether you see yourself as a zombie, unnatural creatures, ghostly psychotics, or a sociopath clown, Haunted Nights has a spot for you. However, these spots fill up quickly as they are given out on a first-come-first- considered basis. The earlier and scarier you are, the better the chance you have at landing a spot with the amazing cast and crew of Haunt Nights. Applicants must be at least 16 years of age to participate. If you missed it this year, don’t worry – Haunted Nights aren’t going anywhere between now and next year!
