Witch's Woods Haunted Hayride and Halloween Attractions

Witch's Woods Haunted Hayride:

The woods at Nashoba Valley Ski Area have been taken over by the souls of the dead. As you board your hayride, you will notice that your driver sits in the center of the tractor, far away from the sides where guests are vulnerable to attacks. When the wagon pulls into the woods, you might see a witch or two darting in the trees. Although they are overwhelmed by the growing numbers of ghouls, the witches still watch guard over the woods and our guests. Deeper into the woods, you will hear werewolves howling at the moon, and maybe even see one near the hayride, attracted by the scent of human flesh. Zombies are never far behind, and struggle to keep up to your wagon, lured by the tasty feet dangling off the sides. Spirits of dead lumberjacks haunt the woods, ready to cut through anything, including the wooden wagonload of visitors. Unknown creatures crawl in the dark, barely visible but surely advancing on you. You won't be alone in these woods, will you enter?

Castle Morbid:

Will you enter the dark gates of castle morbid? The spirits living in the castle walls have grown in strength and can cast confusion spells on you. Only the strong will survive this medieval journey. Entering the castle, the younger sprites sense your presence and pass through the walls to get near you. Screaming to alert the others, they chase you and each other through the winding halls that fill the castle. The oldest spirits live deep within the castle's keep, eager for fresh flesh which they will inhabit soon. This castle was once used to keep intruders out, but now the castle serves a different purpose. With the defenses turned in on the spirits of the dead, will you be able to get out alive? This attraction uses strobe lights for effect.

Jack O'Lantern Jamboree:

Come see hundreds of professionally carved pumpkins, brought to life in this spectacular display. Jack O'Lanterns are stacked high with bright lights illuminating their faces. The carvings feature famous horror movie characters, and other Halloween icons. Classic faces and silluoutes of Halloween creatures fill the rows in this unique jack o'lantern display. All visitors, even those without admission tickets, are welcome to walk the rows of carved pumpkins and admire these beautiful works of art.

Horrorwood Chamber of Chills:

A terrifying new walk-through highlights past and present horror movie icons with a surprising twist. Come explore the scenes with characters from your favorite Halloween and horror movies. All visitors, even those without admission tickets, are welcome to visit this attraction.

Vampire Passage:

Many years ago, 13 heavily armed men were seen carrying a large oblong box into these very woods. The box was tightly wrapped in chains and locks. Legend has it, that it contained the remains of a legendary female Vampire.

Their mission was to take her to a secret trail deep in the woods and burn the evil creature, destroying her reign of terror once and for all! As the sun rose, the authorities found what was left of the men and the shattered pieces of wood and chain. Some say she and her fanged minions roam the trail at night in search of new victims. Hissing and clawing like wild animals, you can hear their unearthly sounds and desire to spread the Vampire Curse! Are you brave enough to enter?

Time: 7:00 p.m until closed
