The Haunted Forest isn't like any other haunted attraction because it takes place in a REAL forest- with all the creepy, natural ambiance to go with it. There aren't any walls to protect you from the horrors that lurk in the trees, and no roof to keep out the howling October winds. Most indoor haunts take place in 30,000 square foot buildings; the Haunted Forest spans over 220,000 square feet of pure terror!
