Haunted Maze & Spirit Garden


Saturday, October 29 from 5-10pm

305 Mill Street, Occoquan, VA


Come prepared to be scared! On Saturday, October 29 Patriot Scuba hosts the Haunted Maze, rated PG-13 (for adults and brave, older kids). Enter the maze through the spooky Spirit Garden, then navigate your way through 15 themed areas full of scary skeletons, creepy crawlies, and ghoulish goblins. You might even run into the grim reaper in one of the 32 scare zones!


When you are sufficiently spooked, quench your thirst at the DIVE Bar located just outside the maze in the Spirit Garden. Order a Halloween themed spirit as a DJ spins dance music fit for all ghosts and ghouls. Plenty of seating will be available, so grab some food from D’Roccos Grill while you’re there! No tickets required for the Spirit Garden.


Admission to the maze is $10 for ages 13+ and $5 for 12 and under. Tickets are available for purchase at the door or in advance. The maze is not recommended for young children as it may be too scary. All event proceeds from the Haunted Maze & Spirit Garden benefit local non-profit Patriots for Disabled Divers.

Tickets will be on sale soon!
