The place everyone’s been screaming about
The Niles Scream Park is not just scary, it is considered by many to be one of the top haunted attractions in the country! Certainly one of the largest, the Niles Scream Park offers 44 acres of blood-curdling fear! Unlike other haunted houses, Niles rebuilds all six major attractions each year to provide you with completely new and unique shows. The professionally designed sets and ingenious scare-tactics led The Niles Scream Park to be recognized by Haunted Attraction Magazine as one of the “Top 31 Must-See Haunted Attractions” nationwide for the last several years! This is no mere roadside attraction! Come visit one of the country’s premier haunted houses!
We put the CARE in SCARE
While you’re trembling, you’ll be helping a good cause. In 2020, the Park donated more than $109,000.00 to local charities! The Niles Scream Park is a non-profit community project that uses approximately 150 to 200 volunteers per night to staff its various attractions. These volunteers represent over 65 Michiana area community and school organizations such as Boy Scout groups, church youth groups and booster groups for colleges and high schools. Since 1996, more than $2,100,000.00 have been donated to local and national non-profit organizations, as well as the Niles Scream Park funded college scholarships for students at Niles, Cassopolis, Brandywine, Dowagiac and Edwardsburg High Schools!! What a tribute to our volunteers!
Thank you to our dedicated fans!
We would like to thank all of you who visited with us this year. We did our best to keep you and our volunteers safe and sincerely appreciate your dedication to the project. We are sorry that we didn’t have our normal amount of actors this year. We are cautiously optimistic that all of them will return in 2021.
For those of you that decided to take the year off, we hope that you will join us again in 2021. All that we can do is hope that the pandemic will be in the history books by then. If not, we will continue to do our best to protect our volunteers and patrons from the Corona crap.
When the season started, we were concerned that we would not be able to pay our bills. We had no idea that our attendance would reach the level of being our third best year ever. We were very fortunate to have all three of our local television stations do positive articles about the Park several weeks before we opened. Those articles and the protocols that we adopted played a tremendous part in our success.
We hope that you enjoyed our new timed ticketing system. That was a first for us in the 47 years of the project. It was one of our many efforts to keep our patrons safe. From our perspective it was a huge success and will be back again in 2021.
For those of you that are not familiar with our project, most of our actors are volunteers that work for a donation to some type of community service group. This year our total donations amounted to $109,915.44! Thank you again for visiting with us and assisting us with helping our many, many worthy groups. A detailed list of the donations can be found on the news section of the website. That brings our total donations to $2,171,418.44 since 1996.
Special congratulations to Boy Scouts Troop #541 for being our #1 group with a total donation of $21,575. Congratulations also are in order to the Make a Wish group whose donation total was $11,725. And no, we will not forget our many other groups. They were totally awesome and we could not have done it without them.
Many new plans are underway for 2021. We look forward to sharing them with you when we open on Friday, September 10th, 2021.
Thanks again for your support of our project!
