WELCOME TO THE ZOMBIE HOLLOW!!!
The 2014 Yard Haunt is on in full force! This year we have once again upgraded several animatronics, added a few new ones, and have done a little switch-a-roo on some of the scenes! This year's feature characters will be the "VILLAINS OF SCOOBY DOO!" Nah, none of those new characters, but the old classic's from the original 1969 cartoon series! Come out and see if we have your favorite! We will be open Thursday October 30th (Beggars night), Friday October 31st (HALLOWEEN) and Saturday November 1st.
Zombie Hollow is a Haunted House or as we prefer the term, YARD HAUNT, held in our backyard in Urbandale, Iowa every year at Halloween. We're NOT like the classic version of a Haunted House where you walk through pitch black rooms until someone with a mask jumps out and startles you. We put up a fantastic Halloween diorama similar to something you would see at Disney's Haunted Mansion. We do use some actors, however, no one will grab you or jump into your space. We're here to dazzle you, not terrorize you! This is a Halloween experience for all ages and you will leave fascinated by our handcrafted props and special effects! Everything from the tombstones to the zombies are handcrafted by us year round!

Zombie Hollow is run by Veterans and it is very important for us to give back. We do accept free will donations for the SENTINELS OF FREEDOM, which is a charity organization that provides "life scholarships" to service members severely wounded in the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Theses scholarships help service members get back on track by going back to work or attending further education to reach their goals. Last year Zombie Hollow raised $5,000 for the Sentinels and hope to raise over $7,500 in 2013. 100% of the money raised goes directly to The Sentinels of Freedom!
