At Wicked Woods, guests embark upon an interactive, Halloween hunt that promises plenty of tricks and treats. Visitors venture into the spooky foliage and stop at check points along the route, where they must perform various undead deeds, such as retrieving an item or face the wrath of a working guillotine. From Frankenstein's electric chair to the Phantom's masquerade ball, tricks abound and monsters lurk around every wooded turn. When attendees emerge from darkness, a swag bag of goodies awaits.
Meanwhile, what's swirling in the night at Goblyns Glen? Spooky spirits, werewolves, and—according to Sir Amiss Higglesbottom—a monster or two. As master of ceremonies of the Glen's monster safari, Higglesbottom alerts precocious guests of the monsters they may meet while trick-or-treating their way through an enchanted world of Halloween fun. Along the path, they encounter costumed characters, vendors selling snacks, and impressively elaborate Halloween displays that feature everyone's favorite holiday characters such as skeletons and pumpkins. The tradition is familiar to Oak Meadow Park, which has transformed into a magical, spooky wonderland every Halloween since 2008. While sweet aromas waft from various food booths, families hear recanted tales of ghostly lore and ogle interactive oddities. Those who visit on Saturday, October 25, will be treated to balloon twisters and a performance by Patrick the Magician.
