Once inside, keep a sharp eye out for the beautiful hieroglyphics and sculptures. As you follow the twists and turns of this maze you will be lead to a surprise ride that will keep you on (or should we say… off) your toes.
After using your explorer’s eye in the Mummy Maze, head DownTown for a Haunted House experience filled with optical illusions, cobwebs, and ghostly guests. Enter this FunZone… if you dare!
Do not forget to lookout for some special treats in our epic Halloween Scavenger Hunt located across FOUR areas: MainStreet, DownTown, SpeedDrome, and Poseidon’s Hangout. After completing this Scavenger Hunt, you are bound to be the top trick-or-treater of all your friends!
