There is just one week left to experience Scream LoCo.

The long Halloween weekend is just around the corner as students prepare to finish off the quarter and get ready for the spooky season. For those looking for an extra fright this month, a new haunted attraction in Loudoun County may be just for you.

Scream LoCo is a new experience that takes you through a post-apocalyptic wasteland and everything that is left behind. “Our victims walk through the woods to the BUNKERS where you get to step into the post-apocalyptic world where the mutants live. It’s not a house and it’s not a trail–it’s unlike anything we’ve done before and we think it will make you Scream,” said ScreamLoco owner, Matthew Smith. 

Scream is new to Loudoun County this year, it opened on the second weekend of September and will wrap up its scares on October 30th. After the closing of the “Haunted Forest” at Algonkian Park in 2019, no haunted experience in Northern Virginia has had much tourist engagement. However, Scream has already been sold out for multiple time slots this month.

“We say Scream is a PG-13 event, so we have fun with a bit older crowd. People tell us that Scream is pretty scary, so we have the “Antivirus” necklace for $5 for those who don’t want the attention of our Mutants. If you like to get scared, you are going to have fun at Scream,” said Smith.

Tickets vary in price depending on the night you attend, with Saturday nights being the most popular night to visit. To join in on the experience, you can find tickets on screamloco.com and purchase tickets for $20-$30 to enter general admission, $35-$45 for a ScreamPass (which lets you skip the line at the event), or $55-$65 for a VIP Pass that includes access to the Exclusive Party room. 

The haunted house is located at Graydon Manor Lane in Leesburg and is only recommended for children ages 13 and up. Its horrifying members are not allowed to touch you, but it is guaranteed to give you the fright of your life. The attraction will only be open every weekend until Halloween this year, so join in on the fun during the month of October.
