Lake Shawnee’s Dark Carnival 2018

| $15 – $75

You don’t want to miss the chance to explore one of the most haunted places in Southern West Virginia. Visit Lake Shawnee’s Abandoned Amusement Park Friday and Saturday night from 8 P.M. – Midnight. The park shut down in 1966 and has been abandoned ever since. Stories of eerie happenings and past troubles make this place a favorite with paranormal groups and those who like a good scare. The fun happens every weekend in October, including Halloween Eve and Halloween Night. The Dark Carnival is an outdoor walking attraction with two events.

PHOTO HISTORY TOUR is a historical event with storytellers by campfires in a frightening haunted park experience.

LAKE NIGHTMARE a terrifying walk through a maze of scares that will have you praying for the end.

This haunted park has been the subject of several high profile TV shows including the Travel Channel’s The Dead Files 2017, Most Terrifying Places in America, the Discovery Channel’s Ghost Lab, ABC’s Ten Most Haunted Places in the World, and National Geographic’s The Watch 2015. Paranormal Investigators have combed the site in search of ghosts, and witnesses make claims of swings moving on their own and the disembodied laughter of children. Also new this year, you can choose to spend the night. Call (304) 921-1580 to reserve a camping spot.
