Dark Woods Ranks High On List of Must-See Haunts


Newly christened into the Haunt industry for the 2015 Halloween season, Dark Woods Haunted Attraction was ranked #12 on the Top 31 Must-See Haunts List. Featuring some pretty phenomenal regional and national attractions, the national list is compiled by TheScareFactor.com. The site is dedicated to providing accurate and fair reviews of haunts, based on a collaborative effort of professional haunted attraction reviewers called “Scream Teams.”

Thrilled by the ranking, owners Jason and Mardy Summerlin said their haunt is so new; they haven’t even scratched the surface of the attraction and crew’s potential.

“This is incredible,” said Jason. “Any fan-based list is exciting, encouraging and beyond motivating. It speaks to the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm of our cast and crew. We couldn’t exist without them.”

Entering its second year of fear-inducing mayhem, Dark Woods is proud to announce its icon character for the 2016 Halloween season.

With the ringmaster away, Boogie is bringing a whole new brand of terror to the Big Top. He’s the masquerading maestro of mischief at the Dark Carnival 3D. Enter Boogie’s nightmare in this 3D Blacklight Haunt. Twist and turn through hallways and rooms full of crazed clowns and other denizens of the dark. Meet his band of merry misfits and carnival creeps.

Dark Woods will open select nights Sept. 23 – Oct. 31.

Victims will be immersed in an experience unlike any other, complete with state of the art special effects, sounds and lighting in the area’s first ChromaDepth 3D Attraction. Monsters are real and they come alive at night in the twisted halls of the Dark Carnival’s maze.

And remember, Boogie thinks mayhem is a laughing matter.

Dark Woods offers roaming creatures of the night, the return of many of last season’s favorite characters and mayhem guaranteed to give you a fright. If you came out for the 2015 Season and think you’ve seen it all, think again. Each season offers new chills and thrills, making the experience unique every time you enter the woods.
