Not only haunted attractions and escape rooms, returning to the Trail of Fear in 2023 Evil Dead the Musical. A bloody gorefest of a good time featuring the one and only Ash Williams battling it out with the forces of evil taking the fight to the Deadites. It's a must-see for all Evil Dead fans. It was inspired by Evil Dead 1, 2, and Army of Darkness. If you've never seen Evil Dead the Musical, believe me, you won't want to miss it.


The Trail of Fear has it all. From Haunted attractions, and escape rooms to musicals, what else could you ask for? The scream park also has stuff for the little kids as well and you never know who you'll bump into on the midway. It's fun for the whole family.
