CarnEVIL at Merriweather Park - Oct 14th

Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods

Saturday October 14th 2017 6:00 pm –  11:00 pm

On select nights from October 13th through November 5th, 2017, Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods transforms into the ultimate Halloween event. The park comes alive with horrifying mutant sideshow freaks, demented clowns, escaped circus animals and so much more. Halloween will never be the same. 

With over 20 years of experience producing festivals and fright, nobody creates a creepier Halloween Party. Explore the Menacing Midway, take a trip into the "Abandoned Circus" Haunt, complete with twisted games and prizes, sample frightful foods, and spine-chilling cocktails, all while local bands and DJs keep you in the Halloween mood. The party isn't complete though until you make your way through the multiple scare zones of the Abandoned Circus in the woods. It's dark, it's creepy, and the things that live in the woods are waiting to eat you, oh wait. . . we meant meet you. . . or did we!

Ticket Information

Family Tickets - 6:30 pm and 6:45 pm
The first two available trips into the "Abandoned Circus" for EACH evening are “kid friendly” shows. Kid friendly means no live actors and no animatronics will be used. It also means there will be no abductions, human sacrifices, fire breathing dragons, monsters under the bed or guest appearances by the boogey man. We strive to make our kid friendly experience as least scary as possible, but understand, this is a creepy CarnEVIL themed Halloween attraction. Use your best judgement as the adult.
