A frontline worker in the hospitality industry and recent new mom had on a mask of her own when she was welcomed into the Niles Scream Park on Sunday, achieving the milestone of becoming interior visitor number 2,200,000 this past Sunday, October 11th. That’s 2.2-million.
Her name is Morgan Fentress and she hails from Crown Point, Indiana, according to the Board of Directors of the wildly popular destination attraction. They tell us that as a result of her good fortune, she received a special “ghost pack” of goodies from the Niles Scream Park.
Morgan was accompanied by her friend Mario Rodriguez, also of Crown Point. Fentress works in the hospitality industry and recently had her first child, but that did not stop her from making her annual visit to the Niles Scream Park. She visits just about every year because she loves Halloween, getting scared and is continuing a family tradition that was started years ago by her mother.
Providing chilling entertainment for the last 47 years, the Niles Scream Park is delighted to celebrate interior visitor number 2,200,000.
Open weekends through October 31st and Friday and Saturday, November 6th and 7th, the Scream Park is located on Mayflower Road in Niles, and is easily accessed by taking Exit 5 (Niles-Buchanan Road) from the US 31 Expressway.
