Classic entertainment district adds haunted houses and attractions for sixth annual event
KISSIMMEE, FLA. (Sep. 20, 2016) – Old Town, an iconic walking district full of shops, rides, food and entertainment, has announced The HAUNT at Old Town. As the district’s signature Halloween event, The HAUNT at Old Town will take place for seven consecutive weekends, beginning on Friday, September 23 and until October 31. It is part of the district’s ongoing countdown to its 30th anniversary celebration in December and will be held every Friday and Saturday from 8:00 p.m. until midnight.
The HAUNT at Old Town will include five haunt zones, two haunted mazes and the debut of Zombie Tag, a new interactive experience where guests try their hand at surviving a zombie apocalypse. There will be live entertainment and exclusive performances of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in addition to Halloween costume contests and a decorating contest of Old Town’s classic cars.
“We are very excited to host The HAUNT at Old Town for a sixth consecutive year, said Thearon Scurlock, Old Town General Manager. “This has become a very popular event not only for Old Town but for our guests. With haunted mazes and the addition of Zombie Tag, we are an affordable, interactive Halloween attraction in both Orlando and the Kissimmee areas.”
Old Town’s haunt zones are designed by Kyle Vest of Blast Effects, as seen on season two of “Skin Wars,” and are free to the public. Tickets are available at Old Town for the haunted mazes and Zombie Tag. Nightly car cruises will still be held on Friday and Saturday nights.
