    Press Release
    Scary Wagon Ride Through The Haunted Woods

    An annual Halloween tradition continues this October at the Dao House with our Belgian Draft Horse teams: Rosie and Rusty, and Cody and Toby. Take a chilling ride through the haunted woods during the two weekends prior to Halloween on a creepy horse-drawn wagon. You will encounter ghastly characters and frightening ghouls that only come out at night to seek nourishment from your terror! The ride keeps you on the edge of your seat while you hear hair-raising sounds in the far dark, but beware: you may faint into the hands of the unknown!

    We suggest the early ride for those with young children. It is less scary for the youngsters, since not as many goblins come out during the daylight hours. Not until complete darkness descends upon the land will the true ghouls make their way through the pitiless forest in search of the curious and foolhardy!

    Come ride the haunted wagon on October 22nd and 29th. Rides are at 6:30 p.m., 7:15 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. Limited seating, reservations are required, call 970-586-4094 x1. Adults $30 | Kids (4-11) $20.

    Held at Dao House, 6120 Hwy. 7 Estes Park, CO 80517. With indoor activities, get your first spooks and screams with a scary movie, listen to monstrous and mysterious sounds and discover skeletons throughout! Tricks and treats, witches’ brew and ghoulish snacks will be served and available for purchase. Seating is limited, reserve your scare early. Ride at your own risk!

    The Mindbender haunted house in Arriba CO (eastern Colorado east of Limon) was actually pretty good. We were driving down I-70 and saw it on the list and it was pretty darn scary. Good work guys, for such a small town it was well done

    Wanted to mention a really good haunted house not on your list. It was The Mindbender haunted house in a little town called Arriba (30 miles or so east of Limon). It was right off I-70. A friend told us about it or we never would of known about it. We went to the 13th door before this one and The Mindbender was actually scarier. Our hearts were racing, holy cow they had some good scares. Not as many animatronics and fancy stuff but definitely scared the doodoo out of us. Talked with a lady after and she said The Mindbender has been scaring for over 10 years. Anyway we highly recommend this haunt. It’s worth the drive cause tickets are only $5
