Are you ready to be terrified?
Maybe one of the greatest transformations in North Carolina is the transition from family friendly farm attraction known as Kersey Valley into its sinister alter-ego. By day, you and the entire family can enjoy an afternoon spent axe throwing, sunflower gazing, and zip-lining. By night, prepare for terrifying haunts and thrills. According to the website,” From the moment you arrive on the property, you are fair game to each and every haunted creature residing here.” Welcome to Spooky Woods.
Spooky Woods, North Carolina’s answer to Halloween, is the largest haunt in the state, and has been ranked as part of the top haunts in all the nation from various local magazines. After three decades of development (the haunt now covers the majority of the 60 acre farm), Spooky Woods and the adjacent haunted house are lucky to have a group of talented artists and builders that are here to make each year scarier than the last.
The appeal of Spooky Woods is in their themed mazes that boast an array of special effects and terrifying surprises. Some recent themes have been The Slaughterhouse maze, their whimsical Puppet Theater, and their Hedge Maze that return annually, but each year they add in some never-before-seen mazes to keep guests on their toes. You’ll be in for an experience that stimulates the senses with lights, sounds, and touch, and just a warning, you may also come into contact with a “liquid substance” so be prepared for that if you’re squeamish.
If all of the expertly crafted mazes weren’t enough, you can also participate in some other night time activities on the property like axe throwing, a nightly zip line, and the first ever haunted train ride in North Carolina, the Kersey Valley Express.
Spooky Woods was recently voted one of the nation’s scariest for 2022 on their Facebook page and we’re so excited for what this spooky season brings us at Kersey Valley.
You can book your tickets now to join in on all the fun. Spooky Farm is open on Sundays from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m and Friday + Saturday from 7pm to 12am.
