The Tale of Spookywoods

Back to Main Blog

        It all started with a dare between teenagers to enter a farmhouse in 1985. After being scared by a family of bats, the idea to create a haunted house came about. Over 35 years later, it has become a legendary haunted house in North Carolina and one of the nation’s largest and most famous haunted attractions!

From the moment you arrive on Kersey Valley property, you are fair game to each and every haunted creature residing there. You enter the attraction along a dark, winding dirt road and once you start…the heart pounding excitement is non-stop. If you’re brave enough, you’ll ride with your windows rolled down. But beware! You never know when a zombie might enter your vehicle.

Solving murders, going into the dark woods that have been a refuge for lost souls, exploring the cornfield where human souls are captured by the maniacal crows, visiting the home in the clouds where the four horsemen of the apocalypse reside, and finding your way through the cooler while avoiding the meat grinder are just a few of the things that you will endure while visiting Kersey Valley Spookywoods. Around every corner is another surprise!

Although the experience is different than other years due to the pandemic, Spookywoods has still been said to be “The best.”, “An amazing experience!”, “A must do!” and “The Spookiest!”. The owners hold nothing back when it comes to creativity and the skill of the actors is mind-blowing. As a Count on Me NC certified attraction, Kersey Valley Spookywoods has taken measures to ensure that health and safety guidelines are being followed while at the attraction. Being in the business of distraction and illusion, the art team at Kersey Valley created masks for the actors that with the help of strobe lights and darkness, match the make-up of the actors. The attention to detail is unmatched so you will think that masks are not being worn, when in fact they are. 

Support your inner monster with washable face masks created by the art team and become part of the legend this Halloween season. You must purchase tickets online as the attraction has to be at no more than 50% capacity to operate at this time. Visit their website, choose a date, a time to be on the property waiting in your car and select your ticket type. Get scared and stay safe!
