Indy Scream Park’s “Monster Midway” gives patrons a huge outdoor space to enjoy games, three huge fire pits, and a full complement of food, beverages and beers.
General Manager Jon Pianki says:
“They can expect a lot of scares, a great time. We do a lot of research…we travel all over the United States to find the best haunted houses… and then bring as much of the ideas, tips and tricks…to make it the best haunted house that we can possibly make it.”
Makeup Artist Jodi Morgan shares some of her secrets:
“We actually use things that most people can get at the supermarket.”
For example: for a unique and easy Zombie use Knox Gelatin. Mixed it with water to a gooey consistency and slather it on. Then stick some thin tissue on it or add oatmeal to create a creepy look . Finish it off with more gelatin or latex that you can find in most Halloween shops.
