From the attraction: We’ve heard your screams. We’ve heard your cries. We’ve heard your pleas. We’ve felt your fear. We’ve wiped your tears. At long last, victims. The one & only TRUE & original creator of the #1 haunt in the country is OFFICIALLY returning! We promised you we’d return with a vengeance & that’s exactly what we’re doing! We’ve worked tirelessly since we’ve announced our hiatus from our 2018 & 2019 seasons & please believe when we say it killed us to take that much time off. But. We made your wait VERY worth it. Thanks to our new partners from The Salted Rim, together we’re unleashing an entirely new Screams At The Beach.
