In addition, attractions including the new Mystery Maze, Spider Slide, Eerie Express Pirate Train, Schaeffer Eye Center Wildlife Show, Ghost Rollers and Scarousel are sure to entertain children of all ages. Those looking to show off their dance moves are invited to boogie at the free Monster Mash dance party under the Safari Peak with music provided every night by Feel the Beat Entertainment.
