Who should I contact if I’d like to do a story on Tormented Souls Haunt and Scream Park?

I’d like to scare people or be a part of the Tormented Souls Haunt team. How do I apply?

Where are you located?

  • We’re out in the middle of nowhere, where spirits and demons lie in wait to torment your soul and zombies’ ravenous appetites await the feast on your…shall we say, delicacies. 
  • The only way to get there is by Terror Bus. It stops at the Southeast side of Edgewood Park, Madrid, IA. It is only accessible from S. Main St. Just south of the baseball field. See map. The bus leaves every 20 minutes. 

When are you open?

How much does it cost? 

  • Our ticket pricing varies depending on the scare adventure(s) you choose. You can go through the Tormented Souls outdoor haunt maze to challenge your fears, or you can participate in Zee-pocolypse Paintball to help us rid the woods of zombies. If you are feeling especially courageous, (and we certainly know you are) you simply must take advantage of our Seventh Sin Discount tickets to save a little, while maximizing your scare adventure. We also have a new sideshow for your entertainment pleasure should you dare to enter at your own risk.

How long should I plan to spend at Tormented Souls Haunt and Scream Park? 

  • That’s a difficult question to answer. Assuming you make it out alive . . .  If you buy your ticket online and arrive at your scheduled time slot, you would go to the front of the queue behind other online ticket buyers. If you didn’t, well, let’s just say it might be the end of the line for you where the demons like to quietly pick off procrastinating fright-seekers. 
  • If you are experiencing the haunt maze only, we suggest you plan for at least an hour. This allows for the Terror Bus ride; some wait time and a fright-seeking adventure through the Tormented Souls Haunt Maze. 
  • If you want to try your skill at the Zee-pocalypse Paintball zombie hunt adventure, we suggest you plan for an hour for that as well. 
  • If doing both, plan for two to two and half hours. 
  • We also have food, entertainment, and some selfie background fun which may add to your scream stay. 

Do you have strobe lights, loud noises, and fog at Tormented Souls?

  • Oh yes! Along with the chill of demons’ breath and the stench of fear! Therefore, if you have epilepsy, asthma, heart issues, or are pregnant, please check with your physician.

What if I get too scared to go into the haunt maze when I get there? Or too scared once I am in? 

  • Sometimes our fears can get the best of us. We get that. So, if you are too scared to enter, that’s totally cool. No judgment! If you get too scared once you enter, stay calm and let our actors know you need to leave, and we will escort you out. Remember, we do not refund tickets.

  • Yes, portable restrooms are available onsiteWe suggest using one before you get in line? We aim to scare the you-know-what out of you so be prepared or just change your britches after your fright adventure!

  • Credit card purchases onsite are an option but be aware that the internet can be spotty out in the middle of nowhere and those pesky demons love to interfere with the towers, so consider buying your tickets online ahead of time to assure you will be able to participate when you get there.
  • Cash? We’d rather not but our demons aren’t finicky and if you are the cash-carrying type of fright-seeker, we won’t deny you the chance to get your scream on. Note that it may result in a longer wait time.
