Fear is afoot at Pirates of Emerson
When the air begins to chill and nights grow bleak and black, the Pirates return to unleash endless varieties of horror on all who dare cross their path. Pirates of Emerson Haunted Theme Park has been instilling fear and sleeplessness into Halloween enthusiasts for 22 years and shows no signs of retreat. This year they offer 24 terrifying nights at the Alameda County Fairgrounds with six haunted attractions: Fear Beneath the Pier, Clownevil, Pirates of Emerson, Hotel Hell, Mental Maze, and Bumpkin Patch. If your legs and wits are still intact, check out Frightmare Sideshow, Boneball, Misfortune Teller, and EmersonÕs Oddities. And enjoy nightly entertainment from KaHooLaw Hooping and TatseenaÕs Serpent Sirens & Swords.
Enter a world of terror like no other with new sets, characters, and special effects aimed to scare you silly. Due to the extremely frightening nature of the attractions, parents will want to think twice about taking kids. Pirates of Emerson is a test of courage and survival that will stretch you to your limits. Beware all who enter!
