Haunted Hike & Hunt

October 23 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Young archers in spooky forest

Enjoy some outdoor family-friendly spooky time this October! Register groups of 3 to 50 (split into pods of five) to experience a guided fall hike through our archery field course. Participants will get to explore the twisted trail and make 12 stops at archery stations to take aim at wickedly fun targets. No archery experience needed – beginners welcome!

Get registered to reserve your hunt time today!

Hunts can be chilly – dress to stay warm in the forest. During check in, meet with your expert guide at basecamp to get equipped for your adventure. Once geared up, head out to our Haunted Forest to encounter spirits, spiders, and zombie critters galore. Those brave and skilled enough will make it back out of the forest to see the sun once again!
