Spooky Activity in the “Mother County”
By: Jair McElveen
If you are seeking a few scares but not the long drive and looking for a night out, The McDaniels Farm Haunted Trail in Elizabethtown and Twisted Terror Extreme Haunted Trail in Garland will certainly get the job done. These two haunted attractions are both located in Bladen County, and there is not any other haunted attraction like there’s. With these two spook shows being in Bladen County, you have the best of both worlds. The McDaniels Farm Haunted Trail is similar to a haunted hayride, while Twisted Terror Extreme Haunted Trail is a walk-through trail.
Tina McDaniel is the owner of the McDaniels Farm Haunted Trail Ride, and she thought that the land where her family hunts could also be a great place to haunt people. To bring entertainment to Elizabethtown, she started a hayride that will last approximately 15 minutes long, costing 15 dollars per person. The McDaniels Farm Haunted Trail Ride will be open this Friday, October 28th, through Halloween night on Monday, October 31st, from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m., and this haunted attraction is located at 2064 HWY 53 West Elizabethtown, NC.
The Twisted Terror Extreme Haunted Trail, co-owned by Jeffrey Ruffin and Heidi Cartrette will for sure push you to your breaking point. Ruffin and Heidi have traveled to many haunted houses, some being hours away to experience how frightful they are. Now that they have opened up their own haunted attraction, they will surely leave you horrified with their background. Twisted Trail Extreme Haunted Trail will be open this week and next week on Friday and Saturday, October 28th and 29th, and November 4th and 5th. They will also be open Halloween night Monday, October 31st. Each night they will be open from 7:30 p.m. until 11 p.m. and located at 14657 HWY 701 North Garner, NC.
