NILES, Mich. (November 28, 2016) – 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.
This year, the 43rd consecutive year for running the project, the Scream Park raised over $124,000 for more than 55 area children’s organizations, civic groups and other charities. Proceeds benefitted local school and service organizations including groups such as the Make a Wish Foundation, Boy Scouts, Pets Connect, Positively Dance and the Niles Drama Club. The funds raised also will be used for four college scholarships for local high school seniors.
The Niles Scream Park is honored to be named by Haunted Attraction Magazine as one of the "Must See Top 31 Haunts" of 2016. Haunted Attraction Magazine is a national publication that considered haunted attractions across the country. This is the fourth year in a row the Scream Park has been named to the "Must See" list.
We appreciate the recognition and our fans who visit us year after year and make our project possible! Thank you.

Thank you! We couldn't do this without our fans!
We love our volunteers. One of the best things about them is that they are all working for a charity or non-profit group. 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.
