Creepy Walk in the Woods - Loveland, CO
Sorry folks but to keep everyone safe the owners have decided to not open this fall. They hope to see everyone next year. Hard to beat a scary walk through the local Savage Woods for fright fun. This is not your average haunted house and it’s not another corn maze. In fact it’s not in a house or corn field at all. Just west of Loveland, at the base of Devil’s Backbone, you will find Savage Woods, home of the most vile, hideous creatures our world has ever seen. This once sacred land, now cursed with creatures so haunting they could never be contained indoors. These Woods are so horrid that our own minions (staff) won’t enter. It’s a terrifying, unguided exploration deep in to the Woods to experience the immoral degenerates, native only to the Savage Woods. Some will live to tell the tale, some will never be seen again, some will be forever changed…
