Unleash the Horror: Midsummer Scream's Epic Return in 2024!

Halloween fans, brace yourselves! Midsummer Scream 2024 is back, and it's bringing the spine-chilling Hall of Shadows with it this summer. Picture this: a labyrinth of haunted attractions, hair-raising photo ops, and live entertainment that'll make your heart race. If you’re a fan of all things spooky, mark your calendars for July 26-28 at the Long Beach Convention Center.

Dive into Gears of Fear

This year, we’re leveling up the fright factor with the first-ever haunted attraction created by a major motion-picture studio. Enter "Gears of Fear: Explore the Legacy of Lionsgate® Horror." In collaboration with Jon Cooke and Plague Productions, Lionsgate invites you to face off with some of the most terrifying characters in cinematic history. Think madmen, monsters, and the kind of scares that stick with you long after the screams have faded.

VIP Perks and All-Access Fun

All Midsummer Scream passes include access to every attraction in the Hall of Shadows. For those holding Gold Bat VIP credentials, you get the royal treatment with priority access, skipping the general admission lines. The Hall of Shadows will be open all three days of the convention, so get ready for nonstop thrills from Friday to Sunday.

Step into a Ghostly Boomtown

Your adventure begins as you walk through a ghost town crafted by the talented team at Fear Farm. This isn’t your average Old West—it’s a boomtown-gone-bust filled with spirits and legends, setting the stage for the horrors that lie beyond.
