Dear Valued Guests,

The governor says you have to wear a mask so bring your mask.

At times, there could be a slightly longer than normal wait time to pass through the security checkpoint. Should this occur, we ask for and appreciate your patience.

I thank you for your patience as we work through the many new challenges this pandemic has presented. We are excited to reopen and provide an entertaining break from the day-to-day world. We have been hard at work and look forward to providing wonderful memories for you and your family at the Houston Scream Fest Amusement Park.

The pandemic has required us to raise our already demanding standards to an even higher level with new protocols. I would like to introduce our new Houston Scream Fest Safety Guidelines for implementing enhanced health and safety measures for our guests and team members. There are a multitude of new signs at Houston Scream Fest. Please read them during your day at the amusement park. We will do our best to provide a safe environment. It is up to you, our guests, to help us ensure the safest experience for everyone.


You CANNOT ENTER this amusement park if you exhibit any of these symptoms.

Cough / Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing / Chills / Repeated shaking with chills / Headache / Muscle pain / Sore Throat / Diarrhea / Loss of taste or smell / Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0° degrees Fahrenheit / Know close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19.

PLEASE NOTE: The CDC advises that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be a higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Guests should evaluate their risk in determining whether to attend. People who show no symptoms can spread COVID-19 if they are infected, any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19, and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your visit.

DO NOT ENTER if you are not comfortable accepting the risk of possibly catching COVID-19 from any public place.


Haunted House Safety Guidelines

Implement Daily Wellness Checks: Team members undergo a verbal screening upon arrival each day; team members also receive a temperature check and are sent home if their temperature exceeds 100.0° degrees Fahrenheit.

Additionally, we recommend that employees and guests who feel ill or are ages 65 and older to stay home. They are the most vulnerable population to illness.

Masks should be worn when entering the park or when in any line.

Practice Social Distancing: Guests are guided by signs and announcements to stay at least six feet from others and limit interactions with those who are not in their party. Visual cues are provided with ground markers to assist guests with social distancing practices while in line at the park entrance, attractions, restrooms, food service locations and more. Please Note: Social Distancing is a shared responsibility between our guests and the park. We provide guidance, but we count on our guests to follow this guidance in order to maintain the safest conditions for all guests and staff members.

Promote Hand Hygiene & Respiratory Etiquette: Additional hand sanitizing stations are placed throughout the park, and signs are displayed to encourage all employees and guests to hand sanitize often.

Clean, Disinfect & Sanitize on a Continuous Basis: Team members are assigned additional duties that support cleanliness throughout the park, including disinfection of handrails, tabletops, door handles, and other surfaces.

I cannot thank you enough for your continued support and understanding. We encourage you to read our new signage. Please ask questions, we want you to have a day full of memories. I look forward to seeing you at the park soon!

Best regards,

– Houston Scream Fest
