CarnEvil will be held at the Adelaide Showground and feature a range of haunted mazes, CarnEvil rides and Escape Rooms, swarms of scare actors, scary showbags, gruesome CarnEvil games, fire dancers and entertainers and themed food and beverage outlets.

The Sunset Sessions run from 4.30pm – 7pm and are targeted towards families with children aged between 9 and 14 years. This session will be great fun for kids who love Halloween and enjoy dressing up and will not be too scary. There will be plenty of scary themed rides the kids can enjoy such as a ghost train, dodgem cars, fun factories, mirror mazes and the haunted mazes.

The scare actors will be present to chat with kids and give high fives in this family-friendly session.

As well as CarnEvil themed rides including a Dragons Castle ghost train, Dead Pirates Nest, Tower of Terror, Spooky dodgem cars, Psychedelic Clown Maze and the Spider Web Wheel as well as gruesome side shows games.
