During the day, Kersey Valley is home to plenty of adventures, including ziplines, laser tag, a ropes course, and other family-friendly fair. But horror is in charge at night when Spookywoods takes over. The experts there have been terrifying visitors for thirty years, making it one of the oldest haunted houses in the South.
The Spookywoods cover 60 acres, and the scares start the moment you turn onto the dirt road that leads to the haunts. Feel free to open your windows while you drive down the dirt road, but don’t be surprised if this makes you an easy target for the monsters that fill the forest.
Start Your Fright-fest at the Midway
The core of the Spookywoods is the midway, which has plenty of food, drinks, treats, and a gift shop. Don’t get us wrong: that doesn’t mean it’s tame. The midway has a different scary theme every year, and this year it’s a twisted circus. That means plenty of sideshow freaks, creepy clowns, insane magicians, circus performers, and other monsters.
Beyond the midway there are 13 different haunts to terrify you. They are treated like scenes in a movie as one leads into the next. You must go from one, to the next, and then empty into back into the Midway.
Real Life Movie Monsters
The first stop will be the Monster Makers Studio. Where you’ll find out what makes Martin’s (whoever that dude is) monsters so real. Our guess? Deal with the devil.
The Terror Tram Returns.
After your movie marathon, you’ll embark on the fan-favorite Terror Tram, giving you a trip through intricate sets and horrify setups. Even though the trams are enclosed, that doesn’t mean you’re safe. The tram trip is interactive to give you up close scares.
One Flashlight – Lots of Scary
Thunder Frights sounds awful (in a good way).
Each group is given a dinky flashlight as they journey through the darkest part of Kersey Valley. Yay. Dark and spooky.
Take Aim + Push Back the Infection
By this time, you might be a little annoyed with being the victim in these haunted houses—so now you’ll load up with a high-tech laser weapon and fight back against the creatures of the infection.
Explore the Haunted Manor
Kersey Valley Manor: Spirits Within is an indoor haunted house involving a graveyard, old mansion, and necromancy. You can expect plenty of chilling undead, and when they show up, they don’t disappoint.
Hang Out with Dead People
Next is The Morgue. You’ll be shown around the morgue by a seedy mortician and…you know.. he’ll probably want you to stay. So walk quickly!
The Best BBQ in Kersey Valley
By this time you’re probably hungry.. so the Scare Masters put QNU Diner next and advertise the “Best BBQ around!” Just uhh.. maybe ask them just how locally sourced their meat is.
The Slaughter House
See?! This is why you ask! Make your way through the Slaughter House of Horrors and find out just what is put into the BBQ at the Diner you hopefully DIDN’T eat at. Oh, and try not to get turned into pulled human. Gross.
Nothing says Halloween like VAMPIRES. This creepy castle is full of vampire vixens who want nothing more than that stuff running through your veins. I’m sure he/she is super hot, but just say no. It’s probably not worth dying over.
Kersey Valley Loony Bin
You’ve fought cannibals, creatures, vampires and now you’re up against crazy people! They’ve escaped and they think you’re their lost hat. Don’t let them put you on.
What haunted house complex is complete without a break out of a prison? Kersey Valley’s Prison was once a solid place… now it’s broken, prisoners are rioting and guards will shoot on sight. What’s that? You wore orange tonight? Ooooooooh. Bummer.
Deep in the heart of the prison… find out what makes the Boiler Room the darkest part of the prison that we’re sure the warden doesn’t want anyone knowing about.
End your trip going through the lab and attempt to survive what has been created by crazy science people. We’re sure it’s BIG, BLOODY and wants to eat your face.
- Bring $5 cash for parking, and wear shoes good for hiking. You spend a lot of time outside in dark woods or a corn maze.
- You can buy pre-paid tickets and VIP passes online to skip lines, which is especially recommended as it gets closer to Halloween.
