Scream-A-Geddon is turning the election into a real horror show with I-275 billboards featuring Trump and Clinton
A Pasco County "scream park" is finding the humor and the horror in the current election with some clever marketing—two large billboards in Tampa advertising Scream-A-Geddon as more terrifying than a Hillary Clinton or a Donald Trump presidency.
The billboards, which can be seen from northbound Interstate 275 near the Interstate 4 and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard exits, read "Scream-A-Geddon, scarier than...," next to a picture of Trump or Clinton's face.
Benjamin Nagengast, CEO for the seasonal horror attraction which opened last year on 60 acres of land in Dade City, said the idea was to show that Scream-A-Geddon is willing to go out on a limb and not be afraid to offend people, unilke its more corporate theme park competitors.
"So many people are afraid of one, or the other, or either of these candidates winning," Nagengast said. "One's gonna win, there's not much you can do about that, but we wanted to play with that idea."
Nagengast said Tampa ad agency Schifino Lee came up with and executed the billboard idea.
Scream-A-Geddon is open on select nights through Nov. 5. The park features six haunted house attractions, including the new "Infected," an interactive house where "we can actually touch you," Nagengast said.
