Trail of Terror brings horror to life

From the producers of the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, the Trail of Terror is celebrating the 22nd year of terror beginning Friday, Oct. 9.

Trail of Terror is considered the Twin Cities largest and scariest Halloween event with more than 2.5 miles of scares and horrors, indoors and out.

 New for 2015

•Escape Room — You and your team of squires will be locked in a fully themed castle room and will only have 20 minutes to work together to figure out how to get out.

•Mural Competition — Get creative and make a mural that will be displayed at Trail of Terror throughout the season and receive two free admission tickets just for participating!

•Pumpkin Carving — Grab a knife and get carving. Bring a carved pumpkin to Trail of Terror and receive an admission ticket for only $10.

•KnockerBall — Take bumper cars a step further by wearing an inflatable ball and running into your friends in the exciting game of KnockerBall.

•Hookah Lounge — One and all are invited to experience our new hookah lounge where you can socialize with friends. We will have cigars, cigarettes and a variety of hookah flavors to choose from.

•Dire Wolf — Meet the fearsome Dire Wolf.

 2015 Highlights:
