“We’re excited that Florida Event Productions chose Jungle Island to serve as this year’s location for its award-winning Halloween attraction,” said John Dunlap, President & CEO of Iconic Attractions Group, which manages Jungle Island. “Our visitors will experience a heart-pounding fear like never before at Terror in the Jungle.”
Florida Event Productions’ Producer, Brandon Kittendorf has brewed an incredibly chilling story line for Terror in the Jungle, which goes as follows: A plane carrying toxic bio-chemicals from a research lab in Mexico flew off course and crashed into the ruins of the Aztec city surrounded by a lush tropical jungle. The bio-chemicals mutated the jungle animals and local Indians into half dead creatures who feed on all the living creatures in the jungle. The Aztec Indians prayed to their gods for forgiveness and instead, the Gods unleashed their demon called the HUNTER, which devoured everything living in its path.
The Mexican government has been looking for the plane for over two years. Reports of the giant mutated animals and zombie like Aztec Indians running wild in the jungle has forced the Mexican government to investigate. One of the chemicals carried by the plane was an experimental virus banned by the research lab because of the uncontrollable side effects. A Hazardous Material Containment unit has been dispatched to the region to clean up the mess, but they have no idea what they are about to encounter. Little do they know, they are entering into what the locals call, Terror in the Jungle.
“Every time you let your guard down, there will be something else to scare the living daylights out of you,” said Kittendorf. “We’re creating a gory Halloween attraction using natures natural darkness, fog, costumes and special effects, screams, animals and visual stimulation to play on peoples phobias and fears. The thought of walking around in a jungle in pitch-black darkness is already eerie, which is what makes Jungle Island the perfect setting for this event.”
