Scottsdale’s newest haunted attraction, The Panic Park, announced today it has entered into a partnership with St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance to scare away hunger this Halloween season beginning Sunday, October 14.

The Panic Park will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items for the hungry of Arizona each Sunday in October in exchange for $5 off admission to The Park. To qualify for the discount fear-seeking patrons must donate at least three canned or non-perishable items upon arrival on any Sunday during October.

“St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance is a wonderful organization,” said George Nelson, Director of Operations for The Panic Park. “Unfortunately, though, they are currently about 50 percent behind on donations this year. And, with upwards of 20,000 customers coming to The Panic Park this Halloween season, I’m sure we can help put a little dent into their deficit.”

The Panic Park is open weekly Thursday – Sunday (Thurs & Sun 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. and Fri & Sat 7 p.m. – 12 a.m.). Tickets range in price from $5 for general admission to $35 for an All-Access VIP Super Pass which includes VIP Parking and a Fast Pass to all three haunts allowing immediate access to the front of the lines. Whether purchasing tickets online or at the door, The Panic Park offers NO ticketing fees and FREE paved parking with all purchases.

The Panic Park, developed by Scottsdale-based Darkside Productions LLC, is located in Scottsdale at The Pavilions at Talking Stick (Indian Bend Rd and Pima Rd.) directly behind Target. For more information or to purchase tickets visit, call (480) 999-0303 or
