One of the best features of Frightfest is our annual 'CARNEVIL' WALK OF THE DEAD Haunted Trail.
The Walk of the Dead is a 2000 square foot winding outdoor/tent maze filled with your deepest fears. We incorporate common phobias, movie themes and monsters, and some special effects to bring this life.
2018 Theme is Carnevil of Terror! With the trail mostly under a big top tent.
The Walk of the Dead is a fully staffed Haunted Trail with actors, props, decorations and roughly 10 themed areas.
We've got 2 Versions of this fun house:
Returning for 2018:
CHOOSE YOUR TERROR feature,
allowing you to go through the trail 2-3 times to see all the hidden rooms in the maze.
A staple from the beginning, our Theatre is filled with Roving Zombies and Monsters. Once the sunsets, watch out as they wander around the lot as you watch your horror movie.
Fun Food Specials including:
Zombie Brains Funnel Cakes
Spider Web Cotton Candy
Caramel Apples and more!
