Your host again for the event - "The man with one foot in the world of the living and the other foot six feet under..." is THE UNDERTAKER, and he has so much planned for your visit! Attendees are encouraged to bring their own flashlights and come in costume. This is an all-ages event, though some of the attractions may be more suited to the 13 and older crowd, and they will be marked.
This year there are two parts to the haunted house. Part 1 is approximately the same level of fright as last year. However, this year you will have the option to go on to our 'Extreme Terror' Pt 2! You must choose ahead of time, and NO ONE who initially says they do NOT want to go on to Pt 2 will be allowed to change their mind in the middle of the haunted house. You may always return to the haunted house, and this time sign off to experience Pt 2, this time around!!
*From 5-6pm there are NO scare actors in the haunted house, VERY LIMITED live animatronics, and NO actors roaming the property outdoors. This is for our younger guests and those who do not like having things jump out at them.
*From 6-9pm there ARE scare actors & live animatronics in the haunted house, as well as actors roaming the property outdoors. At this time we are in FULL EFFECT!
*The Halloween Night Market will be open every night! Our crafters and sellers of the curious and odd… You know you still need those final (or maybe EVERYTHING) touches for Halloween - for your costume, for your home. Our great vendors will have lots of artistically and appropriately spooky items, curiosities, oddities, costume pieces and decorative items for purchase! So much cooler than any Big Box store...
*FOOD! COME HUNGRY! And not just for brains! We have food vendors on site.
The Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Trust is a 501C3 non-profit, and this is the final fall fundraiser for the Preserve.

You can buy advance tickets here or you can buy them at the gate. When you buy your ticket here in advance, you are buying 'timed tickets' (like a”Fast Pass” it,s ticket that allows you to go into the haunted house, at a particular time, and skip the general line) – great for busy times. If you buy your ticket ‘at the gate, when you get there, you may need to wait in line.
Both types of tickets also cover all the other things happening that night at Nightmare Island (except the Paranormal Investigation Tour, which is an additional $5, payable at the gate) - so that one ticket is all you need. We have lots of other tours, presentations, and frights in addition to the haunted house. Check the "Theme Nights" above!
