As night falls across the 33-acre campus, expect the unexpected! Wizards will stir up some magic outside Swan House while a witch and her ghouls take over Smith Family Farm. Over in Swan Woods, a vampire saloon is serving up scares on tap, and tortured souls haunt a long-shuttered hospital. The main building will offer some more gentle Halloween fun for even the youngest trick-or-treaters throughout the special event!

The Haunted Happenings each have a scare rating to help both the fearless and faint-of-heart decide where to go throughout the evening.
