Haunted Woods

Explore your fears on select nights in October from 6:10 PM to 10:00 PM. Explore Park is excited to bring you our first annual Haunted Woods miniature golf adventure. NEW: We have expanded this event due to popular demand! A new tee time has been added from 6:10-6:30 PM.

What Is it?

We’re building a haunted trail with 18-holes of miniature golf. Along the way you’ll experience ghouls, goblins, and frightening decor. Glow in the dark balls and hole features will help you along the path, but don’t be surprised if you see a few apparitions from the woods along your way. While you’re here, enjoy Halloween themed concessions and campfire fun.

I'm Scared...

Worried about bringing the kids, or do you just fright easily? Choose your own scare level by arriving during our early “Twilight Hours” (6:30pm-8:00pm). Little ones will be marked so our ghosts know to leave them alone.

Can I Wear a Costume?

Yes! Guests are encouraged to come in a family appropriate Halloween costume. No masks allowed for anyone over age 12. 

All costumed guests can get a free bag of popcorn at the Visitor Center!
