It’s dark and chilly. As you enter the barren October woods, you think you hear rustling about in the leaves… probably just nothing, right? Your heart starts to beat as your mind begins to race- what kind of nightmares could possibly await… BOO! A werewolf menacingly grabs your shoulder as you let out a childish scream. Your friends and family applaud with laughter. All in good fun.
You are seated on one of Woodloch’s famous “Haunted Hayrides.” What began 20 years ago as a simple ride through the woods with a few dedicated staff members in costume has expanded into a Halloween tradition that simply should not be missed. While the charisma and spirit of ambitious “goblins” in the woods remains the cornerstone of the fun, the rides now include extensive “sets,” live animals, loud music and pyrotechnics.
And we’re constantly researching new ways to spook you out. It’s a labor of love.
We’re also pleased to announce that, for the first time, that these rides will be included entertainment when you make a dining reservation at our resort. Enjoy family style course meals at the Pines with abundant food and delicious deserts. Appetites satisfied, get ready to hop aboard our wagon for the ride of your life! (Due to their scary nature, these rides are generally not recommended for “little ghouls)
Once you board your wagon, your journey of terror will begin. You will traverse through approximately a dozen different “scenes” based on classic horror movies and more. The wagon will periodically stop moving… and that’s when the fun begins. Of course, these are done in good spirit to embrace the season, so as terrifying as we attempt to be, remember- it’s all make believe (or… is it?).
So between pumpkin picking, jack o’ lantern carving and candy stockpiling, remember that a fun escape- the treat of an award-winning resort close by and the tricks of our “monsters” in the forest- wait for you at Woodloch.
Reservations will be “disappearing” quickly- call 800.WOODLOCH today for a night to remember!
