Shhh… Did you hear that??? Circle of Ash, the haunted attraction that you have known and loved for nearly two decades, returns to the Linn County Fairgrounds, just ten minutes north of Marion! A true Scream Park Experience, Circle of Ash delivers three scary haunted house attractions, three incredible rides, an Escape Room, and a Murder Mystery Event, plus onsite concessions; Circle of Ash is the destination for your haunted Halloween fun! Don’t believe us? Best Things Iowa rated Circle of Ash as the #1 Haunted Attraction in the state!
Included in your ticket price (Unlimited re-entry on any given night to any/all of these attractions):
Circle of Ash – Back and better than ever in 2018 is the modern twist on the classic style show. Mixing elements of indoor and outdoor style haunted attractions; Circle of Ash delivers the best of both worlds. Meet Molly in the house she lives in, experience all your senses in our sensory area, find your way through the intense industrial theme, and get your medical checkups on your way to the woods in back. Areas of TOTAL DARKNESS await, and a lot of beautiful, scary sets where monsters can hide. Also, don’t forget Claustrophobia and the Vortex Tunnel. Are you brave enough to go first?
Frightmare Forest – The year was 2009. We killed and buried Frightmare Forest, as we knew it. It just was not willing to die. For many years, Frightmare Forest would haunt our dreams. It gasped for air in passing conversations. People would ask, but we did not want to talk about such a sordid and dark past. Every year that passed seemed to give Frightmare Forest added strength - added will to survive. Three floods and a tornado have ravaged Frightmare Forest... but all evil things rise back to the surface! Frightmare Forest is back from the dead, AGAIN!
It does not look like the Frightmare Forest it used to be. This time, it is a lot rawer... dirtier and darker. Perhaps a bit more sinister. There are many natural dangers hunting in the forest. Creatures. Creatures that hide in bushes, burrow into trees, and creep along under the cover of night, pierced only by moonlight. And all of that was before *we* got involved. Can you navigate the dark? Can you make the right choices to find your way through the damp, fall night? Will you let Frightmare Forest consume a little more of your energy and soul?
Pandemonium! – Everything you would expect from a bunch of clowns… our most intense attraction! An actual maze… dense fog, fast-flashing strobe lights, loud music and jackass clowns make this one tough to complete. Do not take a wrong turn; you will be lost inside forever... with a bunch of clowns!
Limited Availability – Additional Fees apply:
Journey's End ($5.00 per person) - Experience your own funeral with this comedic single rider attraction. You will be placed into a coffin and hear and feel what your own funeral may be like when a discount funeral home is used!
Halloween Homicide ($10.00 per team) – A murder has been committed. Become investigators, gather the clues, and solve the whodunit crime. Exclusive to Circle of Ash!
Cursed Escape Room - Brand New for 2018! ($15.00 per person) – A normally gregarious resident of Central City became a recluse, and now has not been seen in three weeks. Your group enters the room to investigate when you hear the familiar “click” of a door locking behind you. You need to find another way out but what is it and how does it unlock? Tickets for the escape room are only available online, not on site.
General admission tickets are just $20, and gets you into all of our included attractions for an entire evening! You can go through as many times as you dare that night!
