Halloween in Uranus is getting bigger and bigger!
There isn’t anything more fun than Halloween in Uranus and this year is shaping up to be the biggest, best, fun you could ever hope for in Uranus. Scares in Uranus are always something no one ever forgets! If you attended last year’s event, you already know that Halloween in Uranus offers fun that you can’t get anywhere else. If you haven’t ever attended, then you’re in for all the treats you could ever ask for.
On Halloween night, beginning at 5:30 p.m. and ending at 8 p.m, Uranus opens the property up to host the biggest Halloween event in the region. Already scheduled for this free event is a lineup of food, fun, entertainment, and candy for the whole family that shouldn’t be missed. As you enter Uranus on Halloween night, stop at the welcome booth to pick up your free tickets to the Psycho Circus Haunted House and the Zombie Shoot, as well as register for prizes.
The Psycho Circus will be haunting the Funkyard in Uranus’ lower lot, providing scares to all who dare enter there. You must have a ticket from the welcome booth to enter. The clowns at the circus want to make sure everyone gets a chance to be terrified so free entry is limited to one ticket per person. However, if you would like to go through the haunted house again, as so many people did last year, you can hang on to your ticket and take it to the welcome booth to buy another one for a dollar. All proceeds from secondary ticket sales will be donated to Loving Paws Adoption Center and Kitten Division, Pulaski County’s animal rescue organizations.
The Zombies will be creeping around Fort Uranus in the upper lot near the welcome booth. Everyone is invited to stop by and try their luck at helping Uranus rid itself of the zombie invasion. The same rules apply to the Zombie Shoot, when it comes to tickets, as the haunted house. Once again, repeat visitors can take their used, free ticket to the welcome booth and buy a new ticket for a dollar to support our local animal rescue organizations.
At the Fudge Factory, visitors can start their trick or treating, play a game, get their faces painted, and visit Uranus’ flying saucer bounce house. Visitors can walk through Uranus to trick or treat the businesses and organizations that have partnered up to be part of this event with trunks and booths. They’ll have free carnival games, candy, and goodies for everyone.
Chicken Bones will be serving up free popcorn and a fun game outside, while Spangle the Clown will be entertaining kids with balloon animals and jokes at the Examiner office. The costume contest will be held in that area as well, so don’t forget to enter! The prizes are gift certificates and there will be age categories for the youngest to oldest visitors.
Stop in at the Sideshow Museum for a game and candy, but don’t forget to visit the courtyard next to it to see Kat, the Sideshow’s sword swallower. She’ll be hosting a very cool game and handing out candy. Near Kat, there will be free hot dogs and chips as long as they last (limit one per person).
Escape Uranus will be open on Halloween, as well as hosting a carnival game and handing out candy. Near Escape Uranus, visitors can trick or treat the petting zoo and visit with the animals.
Down in the Funkyard, on the stage, Rusty Pliers will be performing his magic and ventriloquism show to entertain everyone. The Moonicorn Ice Creamery and Funnel Cakery will be open and handing out candy, as well as taking orders if people would like to buy food.
