Niles Scream Park volunteer partyNILES, Mich. (November 28, 2017) – The Niles Scream Park, one of Michiana’s most popular autumn attractions, recently completed another successful season at its always changing 44 acre site on Mayflower Road between Niles and Buchanan.

Proceeds benefitted local school and service organizations including groups such as the Boy Scouts, Make a Wish Foundation, Pets Connect, Niles Drama Club and Haunters For Hope (American Cancer Society). The funds raised also will be used for four college scholarships for local high school seniors.

Thank you! We couldn't do this without our fans!

They work hard all season, and at the end of the season, the money brought in by the Park is divided up by the number of hours worked. Here is a record of donations for the last ten years.
