Halloween Havoc

Thrill seekers can look forward to a night of exhilarating fun and excitement in an environment overflowing with a wide variety of family-friendly activities. Presented by Coca-Cola and your Arizona Ford Dealers, Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park will host its inaugural Halloween Havoc on Saturday, October 17, 2015.

Festival goers are encouraged to come decked-out in costume to be greeted by their favorite super heroes and team mascots upon entrance into this one-of-a-kind extravaganza. Over 200 show cars will be displayed and handing out candy as part of the event's trunk-or-treat. A pumpkin patch and kids' zone, sponsored by SugarRush Arizona will feature games and activities, pumpkin decorating and prizes. A costume parade and contest will give participants of all ages a chance to win exciting prizes, including a limited edition Coca-Cola branded beach cruiser, as well as VIP experiences.

Fair food fanatics will love the selection of food and beer vendors, whose offerings will include delicious fall favorites, like chili, caramel apples and fresh kettle corn. Mind blowing interactive displays and activities will be onsite, including Local Motors' Rally Fighters, and Veraddo™ Drift Trikes, which adventure addicts can opt to take for a wild spin. Adults and kids alike will covet a nail-biting monster truck ride courtesy of American Thunder Motorsports. Celebrity autograph sessions and photo opportunities sponsored by Southwest Selfies will allow festival goers to capture and share their night's fun-filled experiences with friends and family through social media.

The event's main attraction will take place on the venue's world famous drag strip, where spectacular racing thrills will be sure to wow the crowd. Spectators don't have to be racing fans to get caught up in the exhilarating excitement of racing ET Bracket Cars and Junior Dragsters, as well as a Top Dragster/Top Sportsman shootout. A highlight of the night will be the racing Nostalgia Nitro Funny Cars and Western Fuel Altereds, topping speeds of over 250 mph. Invigorating, white-knuckle racing Jet Dragsters, and fan favorites Jet Tank 'The Secret Weapon' and 'Mater' will amplify the excitement. And if that's not enough, a spine-tingling motorcycle stunt show and spectacular fireworks display will round out the night's entertainment. 

Thrill seekers 18 years and older can enter, upon admission to the event, for a chance to win an adrenaline-charged ride in a two-seat dragster or a hair-raising VIP starting line experience. Gates open at 4:30pm with fireworks at 10:30pm, closing out the night's festivities. Adult admission is $22 and children under 12 are free.
