Not what I was expecting for my first time at this attraction. This year we decided to skip valleyscare to go to this attraction we heard advertised on media. I'm glad we received a discount from my husbands job because I would have been hysterical if we had paid full price. You would think the lines are long because the... More

Trail of Terrors is a little bit out in the middle of nowhere, so it's a drive. It's literally about 5 miles before you arrive at the parking lot once you pull into the grounds. The admission is admittedly well-overpriced for what you get, and it's a surprisingly small area of about 3 square miles once you arrive. The scare... More

I attended this year with a few family members. We had taken a several year hiatus from this place due to the escalating crappiness in previous years, but decided to give it another chance after reading they had "revamped" some of their attractions. Unfortunately, this was the worst year yet. The lines were at least shorter than the hours-long wait... More

First off let's just say our kids had a blast. However, they didn't have to fork over the $100+ admission (family of 4). Like long lines? Line to get tickets 30+ minutes. Line to actual ride 45-60 minutes. At least they offer $5 hot cocos while waiting for wagon. After ride Line to walk back through haunted house/maze. (Bathroom opportunity)... More

I love it here. The maze is heated and full of surprises at each turn. The woods walk is super spookey, walk carefully and be careful of tree roots.

We waited in line for paintball for 2 hours. When we got to the front the person was mad and tired that helped us on the hayride. When they put the paint balls in the guns, they said we would have about 100 shots per person. I shot my gun 9 times before it ran out. My friend's gun didn't... More

We went early on a misty evening. Got to see all the 'high spots' in about 2 hours. Lots of screaming and people jumping out at us and following us. They stayed in character very well. The fog over the river was a bonus that nature provided!
