About The Vault: Overtaken

Jack has been released from the Vault! In his place you'll find new creatures from past Howl-O-Scream experiences like Igor, Freakenstein and the famous Fiends nurses taking over the haunts and instilling new fears on those who dare to enter. Also joining these new scares will be classic characters such as The Executioner from The Dark Tower; Dr. Rot; Meemaw from Cornered; Werewolf from Hunted; Georgie from Mr. Karver’s workshop; Giggles the Clown from Festa Dementia, plus many more past favorites! These dearly departed characters are dying to frighten guests again.


Special effects include strobe lighting and fog machines.
