‘NIGHTMARE ISLAND’ RETURNS TO MARE ISLAND SHORELINE HERITAGE PRESERVE
Annual Halloween Haunt Fundraiser on the grounds of the historic Mare Island Ammunition Depot, in Vallejo, CA
Get ready to get scared for a good cause! If the Mare Island Shoreline Preserve wasn’t scary enough at night this time of year...come out to our annual «NightMARE Island» The last of our fall fundraisers, our 2018 schedule is — October 5-7, 12-14, 19-21, 26-28 & 31 Open from 5-9pm each evening. Check our Facebook Event Pages and our website: nightmareislandvallejo.com
for all the details!
Your host again for the event — «The man with one foot in the world of the living and the other foot six feet under...» is THE UNDERTAKER, and he has so much planned for your visit! Attendees are encouraged to bring their own flashlights and come in costume. This is an all-ages event, though some of the attractions may be more suited to the 13 and older crowd, and they will be marked.
This year again there are 3 levels to the haunted house. Part 1 is that from 5-6pm there are NO scare actors in the haunted house, NO live animatronics, and NO actors roaming the property outdoors. This is for our younger guests and those who do not like having things jump out at them. Starting at 6pm — Part 2 is approximately the same level of fright as last year. However, this year you will have the option to go on to our 'Extreme Terror' Pt 2! You must choose ahead of time, and NO ONE who initially says they do NOT want to go on to Pt 2 will be allowed to change their mind in the middle of the haunted house. You may always return to the haunted house, and this time sign off to experience Pt 2, this time around!!!
*From 5-6pm there are NO scare actors in the haunted house, NO live animatronics, and NO actors roaming the property outdoors. This is for our younger guests and those who do not like having things jump out at them.
*From 6-9pm there ARE scare actors & live animatronics in the haunted house, as well as actors roaming the property outdoors. At this time we are in FULL EFFECT!
*The Halloween Night Market will be open every night!

Our great vendors will have lots of artistically and appropriately spooky items, curiosities, oddities, costume pieces and decorative items for purchase! So much cooler than any Big Box store…
*FOOD! COME HUNGRY! And not just for brains!
*Costumes always encouraged & flashlights, too!
NightMARE Island will again be collecting non-perishable food for our Friends in Need and this year we are also collecting new & gently used Halloween Costumes for our Kids in Need, all to be distributed through our fantastic local partner, Vallejo Together!

You can buy advance tickets at https://app.hauntpay.com/events/nightmareislandvallejo2018
or you can buy them at the gate. When you buy your ticket here in advance, you are buying 'timed tickets' (a ticket that allows you to go into the haunted house, at a particular time, and skip the general line) – great for busy times. If you buy your ticket ‘at the door’ when you get there, you may need to wait in line.
Remember, your pre-purchase of tickets and passes help to put this great event on and support the year-round accessibility of the Preserve.
Both types of tickets also cover all the other things happening that night at Nightmare Island (except the Paranormal Tour, which is an additional $5, payable at the Ticket Booth onsite) — so that one ticket is all you need.
