Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in one of those horror movies we all watch? Ever thought, "what would I do if stranded? What if I was being chased by an axe murderer? Or surrounded by a gang of freakishly dressed hoodlems?". I have (actually quite freqently). My husband says I am very strange for doing so and that most people would think I was crazy for thinking into things so deeply. I don't know if it is the fact that my parents were always very comfortable letting us watch horror movies from any age OR the fact that I believe a large portion of society has become numb to some of these "horrific scenes and events". If you are like me and you've thought about any of things...Morrow Road is the haunted trail for you.
I don't want to publicly spoil anything for anyone who may venture to the attraction but this is true legend about a woman and her baby and the stories people believe leading up to their dissappearance (and assumed death). Instead of going through an every day haunted attraction where you see blood and gore or the typical props, I felt I was seriously S.O.L. in the woods in my own scary movie. This trail is over a mile long and you better be prepared to run, jump, trip, and most importantly SCREAM. I was chased by some very real, very scary, very dangerous things. Kevin even said at one point he thought he could have been hurt at any point and time. Let's just put it this way, the actors needed to be careful with how close they got to us with some of these "weapons". We were cackled at and taunted throughout. We felt pretty helpless and lost at certain points even though we realisticly knew we'd eventually find our way out.
I have to say I screamed my head off, about peed my pants a few times, cussed quite a bit, and ran so much I thought, "hmmm I should have brought my inhaler". I truly was scared and jumped throughout this entire attraction. I am very dissappointed that there is a possibility that even though this is their 5th year running, it may be their last year. I want to go again!!!
Cost: $18 regular tickets $15 students
