Park After Dark

October 20, 2017 - October 21, 2017

  • This event has passed.

This is not your average haunted house! The zombie plague is sweeping across the nation and it has infested Oswego. Meet up at South Point for your evacuation orders. You will be transported out of town through the remote “hot zone”. Your only chance of survival is to make it through this heavily infested forest without becoming infected. On your way, you will need to find and secure all of the elements that are essential for survival while evading the impending hordes of the undead in rough and uneven terrain.

Survival Gear

Bring a flashlight to help guide you during this interactive adventure. Dare to tackle the challenge solo, or assemble your best zombie survival team to increase your odds of making it out unscathed.

Zombie Swag

Upon emerging from the woods, all participants receive gear commemorating their survival or induction into the growing zombie nation.

This scary event is rated PG-13

For blood, gore, darkness, and ghouls. It is recommended for age 14 and up, but we will allow 12 year olds to attend the 5:30pm session on Saturday.

Be a Zombie

Become a part of the horde and help us infest the woods with zombies. We need outgoing and fearless folks to get ghoulish and help us give Oswego a scare. Zombies will need to provide their own old clothes that will be ripped, stained, torn, bloodied, and zombiefed. To help you prepare, you will need to attend one of the Zombie 101 Training Camps on Saturday, October 14 at 10am or Monday, October 16 at 7pm at Prairie Point. Sign up for both days and save $2!
