1st Annual eight day Halloween Fest at Snyder Park in Ft Lauderdale

During a Severe Tropical Storm, a top secret cargo plane laden with barrels of experimental toxic chemicals overshot the Fort Lauderdale runway and disintegrated into the nearby woods of Snyder Park. TOP Scientists have been dispatched to assess and “contain” potential hazards to the area and to, “quarantine” the local population.

YOU are the local population…

Some of YOU have already begun to… Change…

YOU will be monitored for the effects of potential contamination as you try to evacuate the area. Into the glowing green fog of Snyder Hollow is the only way out… a maze of mayhem and terror unfolds as you encounter  bone chilling sounds, strange phenomena and the forests new “inhabitants”… Are they, human? See for yourself, if you dare…

The evacuation route ends in a terrifying “Contamination Evaluation Area,” but you’re not alone. The newly mutated residents of Snyder Hollow have only one thing on their mind…Hunger. You must escape from the horrific creatures and avoid becoming one of them yourself if you expect to continue on to the rest of the First Annual Halloween Festival at Snyder Park in Fort Lauderdale.
