Niles Scream Park celebrates its 2 millionth visitor Oct. 14

NILES — The Board of Directors for the Niles Scream Park announced Oct. 14 that it welcomed the 2 millionth interior visitor.

The lucky individual is Yessica Renteria of Plymouth, Indiana. As a result, she received a special “ghost pack” of goodies from the Niles Scream Park.

Yessica was accompanied by her friends George Barragan of Plymouth, Indiana, Brenda Huizar of Michigan City, Indiana, and Alejandro Huizar of Lafayette, Indiana. This was Renteria’s second visit to the Niles Scream Park, and she said she just had to bring her friends along for the fun.

This year is becoming one for the record books for the local haunt. Setting an all-time attendance record on Saturday night, the park welcomed 14,823 interior attraction visitors.  “We are thrilled that we have so many dedicated fans,” said Pete

Karlowicz, the park manager.

For the past 45 years, the Niles Scream Park, a nonprofit organization, has sought to provide chilling entertainment. Park officials said the Niles Scream Park is pleased to celebrate interior visitor number 2 million.

The Niles Scream is open weekends through October and the first week of November. Hours are 7 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday and Halloween and 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2 and Saturday, Nov. 3. The park is located on Mayflower Road in Niles.
