The Haunted Amusement Park

(Formerly Scotty's Scare Trail)


The Haunted Amusement Park 

is located in El Cajon, CA at the Site of the old 

Marshal Scotty's Playland Amusement Park.  


What to Expect when you visit The Haunted Amusement Park


The Haunted Amusement Park is a HAUNTED Scare Trail set on the desolate grounds of the iconic San Diego Amusement park Marshal Scotty's Playland. The once joyful sounds of fun and laughter are now replaced with screams of terror as visitors make their way through the remnants of the carnival rides from the 1960's.  The haunted scare trail takes you under the old Roller Coaster, around the Ferris Wheel and in to the Bumper Cars where you will put on 3D glasses to experience out-of-this-world visuals.  You will then have to find your way through the Circus maze before the side show freaks find you. But don't rest yet, you will still have to zig zag your way out of the sleep away camp cabin.  See the original haunted ride repair shop, and make your way through the old attraction Graveyard where you will see the broken down cars from the roller coaster, a race car, a ferris wheel gondola still waiting for repair from the undead fix-it crew. The haunted Amusement Park also features a house of curiosities, a truly Haunted House of Horrors, a cemetery, a slaughterhouse, and much more on your nearly 1 mile walk through the spooky grounds of The Haunted Amusement Park.



Many of our visitors remember visiting Marshal Scotty's as children. At the time it was San Diego's most popular spot to celebrate Children's birthdays.  Many visitors recall having birthday parties inside of the old covered wagons or in the picnic area near the pool.  Marshal Scotty's Original attractions included: a Train, Carousel, Ferris Wheel, Little Dipper Roller Coaster, Bumper cars, Go-Karts, Waterslide, Pool, Playground, Wild West Shows, Pony rides, 9 Kiddie rides and lots of fun activities.


 The days of playing on the Bumper Cars or going for a ride on the Ferris Wheel are long gone now and the attractions and Buildings have been left in disrepair.  The Haunting look of broken down rides and the History of the park make for a great setting for our Scare trail and Haunted Houses.  Screams of excitement have turned into screams of Terror at

The Haunted Amusement Park!
