We are back at Castle Park in Riverside for their annual event full of screams and scares for Castle Dark!
NEW for 2021, guests will come face to face with their worst fears in Castle Dark’s largest ever maze, PHOBIAS – NOW OPEN! Tight spaces, snakes, the dark, no guest will leave without facing their phobias in this fully immersive and interactive thriller. This was by far our favorite and scariest theme park maze of 2021. It tool almost 20 minutes to walk through the outside and inside portion of the maze. Dark spaces, tight walkways, creepy critters and interactive features will have you screaming and running for your life! Good job Castle Park! This maze itself is worth the price of admission! 5 STARS! We blocked some of the content to save the element of surprise!
As night falls, the scariest Riverside Halloween experience makes your absolute worst nightmares a reality. Returning after a one-year hiatus, Castle Dark will welcome brave guests every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening from October 1 through October 31. New in 2021, the spookiness stretches extra hours! Castle Dark will haunt the Inland Empire from 7 p.m. – 12 a.m. on Fridays & Saturdays, and 7p.m. – 10p.m. on Sundays.
Headlining the haunted experience at Castle Dark are three terrifying mazes, each with a different, twisted theme.
Those that survive will find no time for clownin’ around as they visit Mr. Tubb$ Twisted Circus! This circus is a show of oddities like no other, filled with freaks of nature, twisted acrobats, and crazy clowns.
Then, head Home Sweet Home. Guests are invited to a fun family gathering, but this family is not all they appear to be. Watch out for Daddy, he’s having a really bad day…
Beyond the haunted mazes, Castle Dark offers four Scare Zones:
-Dark Harvest, where anyone found guilty of using witchcraft will be shown no mercy.
-The Inferno, a series of darkly lit streets, where cult worshippers believes only the dead are truly saved.
-The Streets of La Sierra where once dead family members rise from their graves to haunt those they left behind.
- The Midway, packed like a clown car with demented circus folk, roaming the streets in search of new audiences to delightfully torment.
In addition, Castle Park’s 2 dozen rides & attractions will operate during Castle Dark, as well as their 4 award winning miniature golf courses.
