Circle of Screams

Each fall, Lackawanna County is the proud home of one of the most unique haunted attractions you will ever visit. Circle of Screams is America’s only haunted drive-in theater. Behind the big screen lies the dark side of the Circle Drive-In. You’ll experience three dimensions of terror and a horror drive-in movie. 

Haunted Theater

This season, Circle of Screams is featuring two attractions: The Griffin Asylum & The Twizted Acres!

Experience terror while trying to escape The Griffin Asylum, a hospital for the insane, deranged, and victims of genetic mutations performed by Dr. Anthony Griffin, which features crawlspaces, cages, and various rooms.

Back for 2023 is the “Twizted Acres." This attraction takes you deep into the forest where sinister stories come to life and the creatures that lurk have one goal, to make you a part of their spooky tales. This attraction is suitable for all age groups.


• Besides where noted, the Circle of Screams attractions are not recommended for children under 10
• Open-toed shoes, heels, sandals, flip-flops, and/or Crocs, are not permitted
