Events

Welcome to the Bone-Chilling Maze of Madness!

Thrills, Chills, and Heart-Stopping Terror Await in the Forest…

This event is for ages 8 & up ONLY! No exceptions!

Embark on a spine-tingling journey like no other as you step into the transformed realm of our eerie woods. Brace yourself for the fright of your life as the forest morphs into a menacing mental hospital and a haunted prison. Can you survive the horrors that lurk within and make it out unscathed?

At the entrance, “patients” will be admitted into the mental hospital, where nightmarish scenes and deranged minds await. Traverse through hair-raising trails, escape the clutches of the asylum, and enter the ominous prison where death row escapees prowl, thirsty for newfound freedom. Challenge the darkness and test your mettle as you navigate this twisted labyrinth. Will you emerge victorious or succumb to the unspeakable horrors that await?

Deluxe ticket packages ensure an unforgettable experience with an exclusive event t-shirt included. For just $40, not only will you brave the paranormal entities lurking in the shadows, but you will also proudly flaunt your courage with a limited edition t-shirt. Remember, these sinister souvenirs are only available with our deluxe tickets! Prepare to wear your bravery on your sleeve as you enter the unknown.

Don’t worry if you prefer a more traditional approach. General admission tickets priced at $20 grant you access to the blood-curdling maze, allowing you to experience the bone-chilling terror at your own pace. While t-shirts won’t be available for individual purchase, they are the ultimate badge of honor reserved exclusively for the fearless souls who opt for the deluxe package.

As you navigate the treacherous grounds of the event, replenishment is essential for survival. Concessions will be conveniently available on-site, providing sustenance in case your nerves demand a momentary respite. Make sure to refuel and recharge, as you’ll need all your wits about you to conquer the horrors that lie ahead.

All proceeds from this heart-pounding event will benefit Graham Creek educational programs. So, not only will you experience a night of unforgettable terror, but you’ll also contribute to the development and enrichment of our community’s educational initiatives. Join us for an exhilarating evening while supporting a worthy cause!

Are you ready to face the unimaginable? Get your tickets now and plunge headfirst into the Maze of Madness!
