3Creepy Hollow Haunted Woods

Journey down the winding, dimly lit Trails of Terror, visit the Halls of Horror, and take a chance on the Zombie Maze. This is three Halloween activities in one location. Visitors will come face-to-face with their greatest fears. Monsters might be lurking around the old abandoned school bus, ghosts haunt the foggy cemetery where crumbling headstones cast shadows, and a fortune teller gives dire warnings before stepping into a maze filled with zombies – an activity sure to terrify even the bravest soul! It is open every Friday and Saturday night until Halloween, plus Halloween night. There will be a bonfire and concessions are available.
Time: 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. every Friday and Saturday night through October 29
