Zombie Apocalypse Supply Drive

Zombies are near...

The Apocalypse is eminent! But you can help! Bring your doomsday materials to the park and donate them to a good cause. Donate new, unused survival kit items at the Front Gate before entry into the park and receive $20 off your Haunted House Wristband. All collected items will be donated to PADS of Lake County to help end homelessness.

Acceptable items include:

  • Backpacks / duffle bags
  • Sweatpants / sweatshirts
  • Laundry pods
  • Socks
  • Toiletries (Travel Size deodorant, lotion, etc.)
  • Hand and Feet Warmers
  • First aid kits
  • Food / Grocery gift cards ($5 per gift card) 

No weapons of any kind will be accepted. If brought, they will be confiscated and you will not be permitted to enter the park.

Collection will take place at the Front Gates from 4:30pm - 9:00pm on Friday, October 18 and 10:30am - 4:00pm on Saturday, October 19.  One item is required per person. Please note that all donations should be made before entering the park and before entering the security line. 

Collection will take place to the right of the main entrance before the Guest Services. 

After you make your donation, battle the zombies yourself! Our ghouls of Fright Fest have come out to play. Can you brave all the haunted houses? If you're too scared, hide out in a food location and warm up with some hot chocolate!
