Have you ever been on a ‘Spooky Trail’? See how brave you really are at this Spooktacular event that includes a Haunted House, mystic fortune teller, and live actors to make the event even more realistic. You’ll need luck if you accidentally venture across the bridge of ‘Last Hope’ onto ‘Shady Lane’, or if you stumble into the chaos of the ‘Hocus Pocus Midway’. If being constantly scared garners up an appetite, enjoy hot dogs, popcorn, mini donuts, and hot chocolate by the crackling fire. And remember to watch out for witches who may be casting spells by the fire!
