Prescott Gateway Mall
Suite 214 - Across from Macayo's
Fridays & Saturdays
Starting October 11
It may surprise you to know that all manner of spooks and specters have begun to take up residence in Suite 214 at Prescott Gateway Mall across from Macayo's Mexican Kitchen.
"We're not sure how this happened, but we're definitely getting strong readings from that particular area," commented Dr. Frank N. Stein, a local paranormal investigator. Fortunately, the situation is under control. In fact, mall management and ghoul leadership have struck an agreement.
"We've found the ghouls to be surprisingly easy to work with," says Scare-A-Zona organizer, Jack O'Lantern. "From 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM each evening, they've agreed to be friendlier [less scary] to kids ages 12 and under," he continued. For that part of the evening, admission for kids 12 and under is only $2.00.
However, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM each Friday and Saturday night, no-holds-barred horror will be unleashed on Scare-A-Zona guests. Admission for that terrifying portion of the evening is $5.00 and is restricted to ages 13 and up.
Enter if you dare!
