The trail takes you through a 30-minute walk in a haunted forest as you encounter 13 small haunted houses.

This is a new attraction that visitors will enjoy. Both attractions are walking trails, so be sure to bring your walking shoes. The trails are combined so that you will do both paths during your visit.
