RYE, N.Y. – Enter the “Scared by the Sound” Haunted House at Playland Amusement Park in Rye if you dare when the attraction returns Oct. 5 complete with zombies, ghouls, ghosts, and two new attractions to kick off the Halloween season.
The 10,000-square foot haunt awaits visitors featuring a spooky wine cellar, library, sanatorium, and more. The “tunnel of doom” and the waterfront cemetery and mausoleum are spine-tingle spook-fests from beginning to end. Those who journey through the new “Demented Pumpkin Patch” and “Terror Trail” will find themselves amid “unstable” inhabitants as they walk through a path of intricately carved and lighted pumpkins, wander through cornfields, and stumble upon a slaughter house.
Visit scaredbythesound.com to purchase tickets online by credit card. In-park ticket purchases will be by cash only. Admission for “Scared by the Sound” is $16 for adults, $12 for children 12 and under, and $5 for Hardly Haunted Matinees. Admission for “The Demented Pumpkin Patch/Terror Trail” is $12 for all ages.
