In the deep, dark woods of Candia, thrill-seekers tentatively explore Haunted Acres' Area 52, which sends tingles up spines with five terrifying attractions created by horror professionals with 20 years of experience. Guests step inside the quarter-mile Nightmare woods walk and immediately duck to avoid the Hollywood-esque animatronic slayer and possessed flowers while trying to spot the real ghost that has been photographed here by paranormal investigators.
Over at the Graveyard of the Damned, adventurers walk across the exposed face of a man buried on the walking trail before heading to the pitch-black Maze from Hell and the ghoulish prison Cell Block 13. Those who have any nerve left can then explore the 3-D Nuclear Accident site fogged up with clouds of radioactive steam.
The spooky attractions, which feature a central common area, were given five stars by Boston Events Insider. It then went on to say that "Haunted Acres is nothing less than a must see destination that deserves more praise than five stars can convey." Patrons can make an evening of it with Haunted Acres' bonfires, food, beer and wine, and dual 1,000-foot zip lines.
