Jungle Island is getting into the scare game.

The Watson Island attraction said Thursday that it will host a Halloween experience this fall for the first time — but not the last.

Event producer Brandon Kittendorf, who has put on scare-filled events in Hallandale Beach and Fort Lauderdale, has committed to bring a Halloween attraction to Jungle Island for three years.

Terror in the Jungle will run over the course of 20 nights between Oct. 2 and Nov. 1. The event will include the “Toxic Zombie Jungle Entrance” path and the 10,000-square-foot “Ruins Pyramid Haunted House.” The storyline includes a plane that crashed with toxic chemicals, jungle animals mutated by those chemicals and natives turned into zombies.

Tickets will cost $45-$55 depending on the night, with $20 expedited passes available. Only teens and adults will be allowed into the haunted areas, but childcare will be offered for $5 per child.

More information will be posted at www.terrorinthejungle.com.
