We offer something to chill the blood in anyone’s veins, whether it be ghouls, goblins, demons, or our group of psychotic clowns – or even the twisted BOOGER JIM himself!. You will leave horrified, if you get out alive!
Boogerwoods - Rockwell, NC
Open Friday and Saturday nights beginning around the middle of October and runs through early November. A Halloween event this haunted trail takes about 35 minutes to complete. It has been raising money for over 40 years with proceeds benefiting cystic fibrosis research this year. Attractions includes the return of the popular Twister Saw attraction, Mine Shaft, Club Booger, Booger Meat Packing, and more. Enjoy free parking, concessions, movies and souvenirs. Tickets are $20. Here is their explanation why they use tour guides: “Yes we have Guides and have had them for 43 years! Other haunts have told us we need to drop the guides so we can put way more people through. Well we just can’t do it. Our guides are part of the show and want to make sure you have a great time at Boogerwoods from the front of the group to the back. They get you involved in every scene. Yes we could put 3 times more through without guides, but we would rather give you a complete show.“
Camp Fear - Hiddenite, NC
Spend 45 minutes on the wooded trail at Camp Fear. The scenes are Rock Maze, Spinning Vortex, Clown Chaos, Insane Asylum, Living Dead Dollhouse, and Freakshow. Camp Fear opens every Friday and Saturday in October. It runs from dark until 11 pm. It takes about 45 minutes to walk the trail. Remember “Alice in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass”? Lovely tales for children, featuring a girl who had very strange dreams. Dreams populated with impossible talking animals, a time obsessed rabbit, and disturbing, unusual people. Or should we say, for the sake of accuracy, unusually disturbed people? Note this is probably a good example of an extreme haunted house as they may touch you.
