STARTS AUGUST 11
There are multiple days available for our construction teams! We’ll begin August 11 and work every Saturday until October 7.
Volunteers are needed to help us build our haunted maze in the daylight. Construction skills are appreciated, though not required. We’ll be working from 9am until 3pm with lunch and beverages provided.
Queue Line Attendees will arrive at 5pm nightly. The role of the QLA is to ensure a smooth formation and flow of the queue lines for each of our 4 haunted attractions.Training is provided nightly, so don’t worry if you can’t make orientation.
Ticket Takers will arrive at 5pm nightly. Ticket Takers are responsible for the gate admission process and will scan customer tickets with mobile devices. Ticket takers are not required to wear any costume, but are encouraged to do so. Training will be provided nightly.
Security Team members must be 18 or older, and have a pleasant, people-friendly demeanor. You’ll be working directly with customers and other volunteers each night to ensure they have a safe, positive experience. Security team members work together when needed to de-escalate an unsafe situation. All incidents should be reported directly to the security manager. Security team meets nightly at 6pm to go over the evening plans, and provide new volunteers with an overview of the event.
Scare Team Volunteers can arrive at Fort Adams between 5:00 and 5:30pm each night and prepare to scare our customers by getting into costumes and then sitting with our on-site makeup artist to complete the look. Scare Team Volunteers will be placed into either Tunnels of Terror, or Mayhem 3D by our Operations team leaders. Scare Team volunteers will be positioned throughout the Tunnels of Terror and Mayhem3D attractions in costume and will be responsible to provide the scares to our customers. Many volunteers team up and work together to create an incredible scare experience. Training is provided at Orientation, otherwise, just a fun and creative demeanor is required. Direction is provided nightly by the Attraction Manager. Some volunteers may be selected to join our Roaming Scare Team and will be asked to roam all over the fort, and into the parking lot to scare customers.
We award over 2,500 hours of community service each season of Fortress of Nightmares. This is by far one of the best places to fulfill your community service obligations.
Private Volunteer Banquet
Volunteers who fulfill just two days - either during construction, or our normal season, will be invited to our Halloween Party on our last Saturday evening. We hope to see you there!
Make Lifelong Friends
Each year, over 200 people (Mostly students) volunteer their time and energy into Fortress of Nightmares. This is a fun event, and we encourage you to volunteer with your friends, and even make a few new friends while you're here.
