  • Kid Zone at Scout Island Scream Park

    ActivitiesKid Friendly

    The Kid Zone is an area for families to bring younger kids to celebrate Halloween together. Families can expect: face painting, a hay bale maze, bounce house, kid focused entertainment, a pumpkin patch where guests can hand select a pumpkin (included in the price, while supplies last), and a ride on an old fashioned tractor-pulled hay wagons for an adventure through the wooded swamp perimeter for a non-scary hay ride.
