– We have redesigned our operations due to COVID-19 with reference from the CDC and local authorities. Also, in keeping our staff and customers safe we have added extra safety measures.” Limited close contact and 6 feet social distancing. Online ticketing. Staff and customers must wear masks. Frequent sanitation. Temperature checks for staff and patrons. No physical contact. “Haunted Hills Estate Scream Park is NOT a concert or sporting event, and we do not have high touch areas like most themed parks or entertainment venues. The events at Haunted Hills Estate are a walk-through experience. The actual Park is located over 40 acres, allowing us to spread out and maintain social distancing. Four of our attractions are outside, and the other two have outside areas as well as inside areas with great ventilation. All six attractions have been re-designed to keep all groups separated. We are constantly monitoring the capacity to keep groups separated. In the event that you come close to a group please slow up. We have upgraded the scares with state-of-the-art technology and actor training which allows for social distancing. We have created less waiting, smaller groups, more spacing, it’s what everyone has always wanted! The attractions are cleaned and sanitized before we open and at closing each operating night. The high touch areas are disinfected regularly throughout operations. We have hand sanitizing stations throughout the Park for your convenience. We will follow the local and CDC recommendations and look forward to scaring you. Let’s keep safety as a main goal while celebrating the 2020 Haunt season!
