A special registration includes park admission, Zombie 5K, Zombie 5K t-shirt, concert featuring Mushroom Head, a medal and one drink ticket.

Land of Illusion also features 2 adrenaline thrilling attractions – the Sniper Zombie Patrol and the freefall Demon Drop. Each of these attractions require a separate ticket.

The Zombie Sniper Patrol puts you right in the action, hunting down roving bands of unruly undead. Visitors board an army transport vehicle and take aim at the zombies with a paint-spewing pistol – as the “glow” paint-balls fly, the bodies fall. The Demon Drop has an amazing 40-ft freefall experience. Visitors climb up a pole with hand and foot holds from the ground to an elevated platform 40-feet in the air with two separate platforms. You step off the platform, with safety gear, to begin your descent.

Land of Illusion is not for the faint of heart so young kids should be advised. For kids and adults not wanting to enter the haunted houses, a separate admission and entry is available for the Zombie Sniper Patrol.

Additional park amenities include the Voodoo Lounge, a full service liquor bar for ages 21 and up and the Creepy Café for food items and spooky snacks.
