The Hall of Shadows
At the heart of Midsummer Scream lies the foreboding Hall of Shadows.
Here, brave guests can venture into the dark, where they will find 14 “mini haunts” – previews of haunted attractions fans can experience this Halloween season here in Southern California. Ranging from home haunters to pro haunters, the Hall of Shadows is a spooky showcase of talent and skill that the Southland is known around the world for.
In addition to a wide variety of haunted attractions, the Hall of Shadows is home to the Decayed Brigade – an incredibly talented team of men and women “sliders” who delight and inspire fans of all ages three times daily during their high-energy exhibitions!
Hall of Shadows is a dark zone, and is not intended for small children. Guests with Front of Line passes will enjoy priority queuing for each attraction in the Hall. Recommended for guests 13 years of age or older.
