This fall, Williamsburg, OH, is taking Halloween to the next level. It will be hosting a blood-curling event called “Terror Town” set in a replica of a 19th-century Western town with period buildings and filled with terrifying costumed characters.
Visitors can participate in interactive games like axe-throwing and zombie brain smash, meet townspeople dressed in spooky costumes, and shop at one of the town’s 25 stores including candy shops and saloons. In one saloon visitors can watch a live band, and in another they can partake in “Scaryoke.” If your singing voice is more frightening than a haunted house, you can visit the outdoor theater playing classic horror movies.
If you’re really brave, you can also embark on the Ultimate Horror Haunted Trail, an immersive walk that takes you through some of the most horrifying aspects of Terror Town. According to the website, “You may start walking the trail with your friends, but by the end you are likely to be left all alone. Blood drenched, tortured in an asylum cell, locked up as a prisoner, buried alive, and endless other scenarios.”
Organizers are assuring prospective visitors that appropriate safety precautions will be taken to prevent COVID-19 transmission. Social distancing will be practiced at all venues, with capacity limits enforced in the shops and saloons. Hand sanitizing stations will also be available throughout the town.
The haunted historical experience runs from September 4 to November 14, every Friday through Saturday from 7:00 PM to 2:00 AM. Tickets start at $25.
