Tickets are available at the penitentiary box office starting at $10-$15 for kids on family night, $20 weeknights, $25 on Sunday nights, and $30 on Friday and Saturday nights.

The two new attractions are:

The Gauntlet - a high-energy opening attraction for the show, which features overhead catwalks and custom props above an outdoor maze.

Break Out! - a new finale consisting of an outdoor scare zone in the final courtyard before visitors leave the event.
