Get MORE Details



Our multi-story indoor attraction, Dark Lane Mall, is located inside the National Bowling Stadium. Your experience begins at the Terror Theater within the iconic building’s geodesic dome.

In these apocalyptic times with no food left, survivors in the abandoned Dark Lane Mall are driven to madness—devouring anything or anyone they can find.

Survive the journey through the old mall stores: Pets Parts, Rot Topic, Twisted Annies, and obviously a Foodcourt Feast.


Our outdoor attraction, Shadow Plague, lets you experience the dark, misty depths of the mutant zone, where plant-like mutated atrocities caused by the infection run loose.

With the barricade into the apocalyptic city breached, you'll see why the shadow plague overwhelmed the field hospital that once tried to contain its spread.

All hope is lost in the outdoor city of Dark Lane.
