As the press release taunts, "There is no way to turn around, hide or run ahead of the scares.Â² It's a 20-minute trek from scare to scare, You can also sit around a campfire and hear ghost stories while you tremble and try to enjoy s'mores, hot apple cider, candy apples and more. A haunted carnival is also there to finish you off.
