The flashing lights of a parked ambulance mingle with the orange heat of a flaming car. Armed men demand loyalty from their captives, with dire consequences for those who resist. Finally, a pair of specters emerge from the fires of the underworld to claim their due. These are but a few of the trials that visitors to Hell's Gates will endure during this dramatization of the Great Tribulation. Live actors draw visitors into a sequence of eight scenes plucked straight from the Book of Revelation, with each one punctuated by immersive events including pyrotechnics and video effects.
Each year, a cast of terrifying characters swarms around the Olde Sharon Schoolhouse to terrify visitors searching for a healthy dose of fear. In the Asylum, guests wander down the hallways of an abandoned mental institution. Along the way, they encounter deranged inmates as the nightmares of the previous residents come to life. For those wishing to join in the action, Trail of Terror Haunted Trail offers up Zombie Outbreak. A research and containment facility has had a devastating outbreak of the Code 6 virus, turning most of the occupants into zombies. Guests are drafted to be part of the tactical team created to deal with this outbreak and become zombie slayers themselves.
With more than three decades as a marine biologist tucked under his waders, Dr. Joe Richardson has studied beaches from Nova Scotia to the Bahamas, but he still never ceases to marvel at the diversity of Tybee Island’s shores. The widely published professor emeritus of marine sciences at Savannah State University delights in sharing his knowledge about these lively shores, and to that end hosts walking tours for groups of all ages that incorporate conversation and hands-on activities. As his followers comb their fingers and toes through the sand of the beaches and inlets, they search for fossilized shark teeth and animals that Dr. Joe helps identify. He also discusses the tides, sand layers, local marine life, and which creatures eat with salad forks or soup spoons. Along the rock jetty, groups splash into tide pools to learn about the intertidal zone and the ways animals adapt to this habitat, then help Dr. Joe collect live specimens for a field aquarium by pulling in a 50-foot beach seine net and examining the fish and crabs caught in its weave. Lucky guests can glimpse the sleek fins of dolphins, and curious ones can ask Dr. Joe about his research projects, current ecological concerns, and how mermaids keep their fingers from getting pruny.
