The wait is over - what you fear is finally here! SCarowinds is BACK in 2021. Whether you’ve visited each year of fear, or if this is your first time, you’ll sleep with the lights on after experiencing our new attractions. Keep reading to see what's in store this year at the Carolinas' largest Halloween event!



The Reaping

In this corn maze, no one is safe when scarecrows and looming towers of corn close in all around you. No one gives you a kernel of truth as to how to escape. Ears are everywhere, but all are deaf to your screams for help.

As you race through this haunted maze straight from the underworld, you never know what you will encounter. Will you find husks of corn or the husks of adventurers who came before you? What’s around the next CORNer in a place where you’re continuously STALKed? You’ll be aMAIZEd just to get out of this tangle of death.

Location: Celebration Plaza near Starbucks

Tooth Fairy

Do you believe in the Tooth Fairy? You better, or you might be the next donor to her vast collection of human teeth – and various other body parts.

Our Tooth Fairy seeks out parents who don’t believe in her. Prepare to be snatched from your warm, cozy bed and dragged to her underworld clinic. Trapped within blood-stained walls, all you can hear are whirring drills and ear-piercing screams. The Tooth Fairy’s dental assistants – gassers, extractors, grinders, and taxidermists – grab their crusty, rusty tools and come at you, hungry to begin your “treatment.”

Location: Nighthawk Pathway


Scare Zone

Raven's Nest

This once-beautiful garden is now wretchedly forsaken. Amid the Victorian architecture, you see a raven - or as poet Edgar Allen Poe described in “The Raven”, a “grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore.” Not just one ominous bird, but an entire conspiracy of ravens. The foul fowl, with jet black feathers and fiery eyes that burn into your core, seek to taunt you, to haunt you. Round and round they go in this wicked scare zone, encircling you, and screeching in high pitches that are sure to wake the dead.

Location: Crossroads near Afterburn


Live Entertainment

Ghouling Pianos

Sip a delicious brew with your favorite goblin and sit back to enjoy our duo of dueling piano players from the underworld. Performing favorite Halloween tunes and your requests, our ghouling ghouls are a monster mash-up of quick wit, sass, and fun.

Location: Harmony Hall Patio

Showtimes: 7:30pm, 9:15pm, 11:00pm

The Queen's Ball

You are cordially invited to The Queen’s Ball, a decadent affair everyone is dying to attend!

With her Duke serving as master of ceremonies and her Duchess attending as Queen Sceleratus’ right hand, Her Royal Majesty throws a Halloween show like no other. The Royal Court of talented dancers, mesmerizing acrobats, and side-show acts entertain and delight all who watch.

But as guests enjoy The Ball’s entertainment, something strange happens to them. A hypnotic trance takes hold, and they give in to her every wish. Be strong and withstand her power, lest you fall into her evil grip, too.

Location: Plaza Stage

Showtimes: 8:30pm, 10:00pm, 11:15pm

hard't BEATZ

The naughty comes out at night. Hearts pound and bodies pulse when dancers return from the dead and overtake the street in a raucous party. Our possessed performers are singularly focused on satisfying their innermost desires – those that balance the fine line between pleasure and pain. The DJ is at their mercy, pumping out the hottest beats to keep them appeased.

A bit steamy and a bit risqué, Halloween entertainment has never been quite like this!

Location: Blood Yard

Showtimes: 7:30pm, 8:30pm, 9:30pm, 10:30pm, 11:30pm
