Haunted Forest Attraction At Panic Point

Saturday, Sep 28, 2019 at 7:30pm

Haunted Forest at Panic Point
2808 Cedar Creek Road
Youngsville, NC 27596


Haunted Forest: The Haunted Trail is the attraction where you will find the most scenes, haunters, and screams at Panic Point. Eleven distinct scenes over the dim half-mile trail challenge your readiness for mayhem and fright. Make your way through the Butcher Shop, Scary Tales House, Voodoo Shack, Junkyard, Pallet Maze, Sanatorium, Motel, Crypt, Abby, Serial Killer’s Cabin, & Clown House.

It doesn’t matter if you are out front leading the way, hiding in the middle, or trailing behind your group, our veteran haunters will find a way to give you the scare you deserve. Every now and then we hear a story about a great scare that happened in the woods. The patron/victim gives a description of the haunter, and we realize we don’t have anyone that fits the description.

Dark Trail: Born in 2011 as the Dark Walk, this fan-favorite has graduated to legendary status as the DARK TRAIL.  The signature rope on both sides of the trail remains, but that’s the only way this haunted attraction resembles its earlier iteration. As the story goes, Doomsday Preppers set up a compound in the woods and started recruiting other whack-jobs to help the work of preparing for The End.

As they laid the groundwork for surviving Armageddon, they were forced to expel two of the young men who had been caught stealing moonshine from the root cellar. Bitter and vengeful, the two mixed up a few pounds of mutagen, then hijacked a crop duster and blanketed the entire compound in a mist of deadly vapor.

Those on the ground could do little to avoid the bio weapon, which caused irreparable neurological damage to the entire pack. The only thing more gnarled and twisted than their bodies are their minds. Avoid contact with them at all costs as you wander through The Bunker, Cave, Bus, Barn, House and Swamp. And when you’re staggering along in sheer darkness, you’ll never know if you are in the clear, or one step away from your worst nightmare.

Haunted Hayride: Rumble deep into the woods on a broken-down trailer in the Haunted Hayride, one of the Featured Attractions at Panic Point (along with the Haunted Forest and the Dark Trail). You’ll soil your hay bale as you traverse the Mine Shaft, Barn, Spider’s Lair, Service Station, and Vortex to Hell.

But its the fluid of the crimson variety you need to be worried about. Hold on to your loved one, and your extremities, because the creatures that abide within are hellbent on one prize: your blood.

Tell the conductor of this wicked wagon not to stop for anyone or anything, alive or (especially) dead, lest you are overtaken by the aimless, moral-less beings that possess the shadowy locales you will pass through on your journey. The security you feel on the moving vehicle is just an illusion. You can’t outrun the danger, and hiding your eyes won’t help, when fear is your cloak, and panic is your veil.

Killers in the Corn: Year 4 for this screamin’ stroll through the corn. Its just a short walk into horror on a trip to your own personal horror movie. As the wind passes through the stalks they whisper an invitation to go deeper, farther into the path of pain. But its not the wind or the stalks that will get you. Its the living, breathing, horrifying killers await you inside this trail of terror.

We’ve summoned some of the most vicious, bloodthirsty killers in the history of the world, and allowed them to equip themselves with the tools of their trade. When they work, its not murder, its artistry at its finest, and you just may end up on the canvas!

Menacing Maze: At just over 1 acre, the Menacing Maze is, pound for pound, the funnest corn maze in North Carolina. Fun Fact: Its not actually corn, but a twisted sorghum hybrid meticulously cultivated in graveyard soil and enriched with zombie fodder (who knew, right?).

This corn maze is family friendly, with no haunters inside. Its just you against the maze, “mano a mano”. Will you break out to freedom, or spend eternity spinning your wheels?

Carny Crypt: Now a 3-D FREAKSHOW in 2019! This Supernatural Single-Wide has traveled the world, chasing carny infamy. For decades it was a bunk-house for the fringe creatures of mis-creation. Regular ol’ oddities wouldn’t touch it with a 10 foot fingernail. The two headed boy split himself in two trying to run away from its grotesque inhabitants.

So, of course, we bought it. Now the Crypt sits as a monument to the most hideously malformed offerings of all creation. Its a brief walk in the dark, but the road to crazy has always been a short trip. You’ll never forget your brief hop through this shadowy maze, and you’ll come out with some burned-in memories, and a little super-canry DNA somewhere on your person.
