The Scream Zone, now in its seventeenth year, is assembled from various body parts and roughly stitched together into four terrifying haunts and other attractions.

This year, The Scream Zone opens Friday, September 26 and continues through Saturday, November 1.

Once again you have your chance to save the planet from the coming zombie apocalypse by putting down the walking dead: play Zombie Paintball and take out the shambling undead! A year-to-year favorite is the horrifying House of Horror, along with The Chamber, and the Haunted Hayride, each casting its evil spell on the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

Other features this year include: The Dusk Till Dawn Bar, The Walking Dead Prison, The Exorcist, and look for Pennywise the clown.

Opening night features the famed Triple Haunt at half-price (night of September 26 only).

San Diego County's largest haunted experience, The Scream Zone is considered among the goriest, scariest, and screaming-est fright fests in the darkened corners of Southern California. We invite you to please be our guest, that is, if you have the nerve!

Climb aboard the carriage of no return. Your blood will run cold as you are transported to a world of the undead. Will you survive an attack of Creepy Carnivorous Dilapidated Diversions? Zombie Paintball gives you the chance to open fire and shoot paintballs at live zombies. It's not your run-of-the-mill paintball adventure: here, the zombies are, shall we say, running rampant and unrestrained. It's shooter against zombie and only you have the ammo.

High anxiety fills the air as you enter the malicious mausoleum known as The House of Horror, featuring 12 new terrifying devious dens, including 13 Ghosts, Zombie House, Monster Attack, Texas Graveyard and the Underworld. Movie monsters lurk around every dark corner to intercept and ambush your futile attempt to run, so don't bother. Last year, 523 poor souls became "victims" of The House of Horror. Accommodations are available and with heaps of headstones obtainable… will you become another cryptic casualty this year?

Climb aboard The Haunted Hayride where all of your frightmares come to life. New on the Hayride this year: Zombie Prison, Zombie Town, and Zombie Containment, The Hills Have Eyes (for you), and HaitianVoodoo. Horror movie master Lon Chaney said, "There's nothing funny about a clown in the moonlight." A sudden state of hysteria will grip your heart as clowns suddenly appear to unnerve you, making your heart skip a beat or two. And don't let Doll Town fool you, the term "child's play" will not come to mind as those pretty, peculiar oddities entice you to stay and play, and play and stay. The Walking Dead will saunter aside your chilling chariot moving you along the cold, dark and dreaded path.

Chills crawl up and down your spine as the menacing maze does its best to keep you in its clutches with a secure dead-bolt! The Chamber holds the longest spinning kaleidoscope tunnel in Southern California, a dizzying delight as the voracious vertiginous sights and sounds manifest a feeling of edgy apprehension. Hold on tight!
