Scare enthusiasts descend upon Spookywoods to experience a host of bloodcurdling attractions. The nightmare haunted house and the terror trams warm up visitors before they mosey into the terrifying municipality known as Clown Town. The Deadly Harvest corn maze induces screams thanks to the ghouls hidden within.
Kersey Valley Spookywoods
Kersey Valley Spookywoods' story begins with a midnight dare. During a campout with his friends in the summer of 1985, 15-year-old Tony Wohlgemuth needled his friend Chuck into sneaking into the abandoned farmhouse that they were camping behind. As he crept up the steps, the other boys nervously waited outside. Shattering the tense energy with sheer terror, they heard Chuck's screams and pleas for help from within. When they ran inside to rescue him, they found his screeches were brought on by an encounter with a family of bats, which convinced them that the house was, in fact, haunted. This inspired the crew to set up their own haunted house in the same barn that October, and in the decades since, Tony and his wife, Donna, owners and operators of Spookywoods, have grown the operation from a small venue run by 10 teenage friends into a sprawling attraction run by upward of 300 staff members.
Nestled on a 65-acre farm, Spookywoods coaxes screams from visitors from the end of September until Halloween. A variety of attractions, such as the Curse of Kersey Krow: Corn Maze, Terror Trams, Fright Lights, and The Geister Haus—discovered by Chuck so many years ago—test guests’ bravery. The corn maze scares explorers silly, thanks to 10-foot-high cornstalks patrolled by a host of masked ghouls, who are really just misunderstood lost souls looking for someone to hug and love them.
