Haunted Village

The air is crisp, fall leaves crunch underfoot, and the menacing headless horseman’s laughter echoes through the forest! “Muahahahahaha!” 

It is once again time for Heritage Village to transform into the Haunted Village! Each historic building takes on a spooky, not scary, new identity. Visit a haunted house, mad scientist’s lab, fortune teller’s lair, witches den and even a haunted cemetery. Each house is decked out with eerie decorations, glowing lights; each house also has a costumed character handing out treats. There are even teal pumpkin treat options for children!

Halloween decorations and trick-or-treating will delight your little boos and ghouls! But there is plenty more for your whole family to experience at the Haunted Village; the fun is spooky, but not frightful, so it is great for all ages. Free games are in the church, stories are told by the cackling witches and Dead Eye Dan and there is a STEM experiment in the Mad Scientists Lab. A pair of gorgeous Clydsdale horses bravely lead the way on a carriage drawn ride through the haunted forest. And if you love animals, you can see lots of creepy crawlies at the village like scorpions, snakes, spiders and bats! 


Put on your costumes and head over to visit the headless horseman at the Haunted Village at Heritage Village. You will have a hauntingly good time.
