Join us for our biggest event of the year! This October, the forest comes alive with monsters and … Venture through hair-raising scenes like the Infirmary and Butcher Shoppe or see if you survive the Electric Chair! And be sure to watch out for zombies!

Don’t want to test your luck in the Haunted Forest? Check out the Ghoul Garden located by the foxes or stop by the Laboratory for a fun, gooey, hands-on experience! (Not to worry parents, there will be a clean-up station available.) And of course, there will be plenty of time to view the animals! Knowledgeable volunteers will be present throughout the sanctuary to tell you all about our residents and answer any questions you may have.

Themed crafts will be offered under the main tent for kids to create and take home with them! Try out games like Guess the Number of Eyeballs in the Jar and you may win a family pass to the sanctuary! As you exit, all kids will receive a bag of candy to take home! Great for all ages, our Halloween Haunted Forest is sure to thrill you!

Costumes are encouraged, but not required. The Costume Contest will take place on Sunday, October 16th at 3:00 PM. The winner will receive a 6-Visit Pass to the sanctuary!
