Twisted Woods' haunted whereabouts, designed by spook-artist Shawn Troxel, emerge out of the dark forest to raise hairs with ghoulish props, spine-chilling special effects, and suspicious characters situated along a 1/3-mile trail. During the span of a half-hour, traipse through a thick cluster of trees while avoiding cobwebs inhabited by gargantuan, life-like spiders, and exchange salutations with the not-so-right locals and frighteningly persistent IRS auditors. The woods also offer up an abandoned military base, remnants of an old circus, and backwoods shacks that are all constructed to generate shrills and heart-thumping creepiness.
