Haunted Attraction Opens Friday, September 13th

Only Haunted Attraction with a Train in a 350-Mile Radius!
Spookywoods fans and newbies are in for a special treat this year. The Kersey Valley Sudden Death Express haunted train ride is the first of its kind in the Triad and the entire state of North Carolina.

Our one-third scale, John Deere-green train will offer up to 104 passengers a ride on the completed, one-half mile loop from the Kersey Valley Express Depot around the existing corn maize, including an “abandoned” mine shaft. Visitors will get their adrenaline pumping with our haunted train ride by night. (And by day, visitors can enjoy a leisurely adventure ride along with the Maize Adventure corn maze.) So, what can you expect?

One of the Top Haunted Houses in the Country!

“We checked out Spookywoods this weekend. I’d never been to a haunted house before, and my boyfriend is super into them. So, he took me to this one. Before we went, he showed me an episode on the Travel Channel about haunted houses—and this one was featured as one of the top haunted houses in the country!”

-Heather Burns, Google Review

Get Ready for a Friday the 13th Like None Other!
Each train car is equipped with its own haunted effects that move, shake, and haunt passengers with various special effects for a ride you won’t soon forget. Riders will be greeted with spooks and scares from both on and off the train.

Phase one of the Kersey Valley Express train ride travels alongside the main zip line tower and kiddie zip line, then through the corn field and a 200-foot long underground “mine shaft” tunnel, also an adventurous experience by day and a haunted experience by night.

As with all other experiences at Kersey Valley Attractions, we set the gold standard to create best-in-class adventures for visitors, including top-quality materials, construction, and maintenance. The Kersey Valley Attractions crew has been hard at work all summer installing precision-engineered train tracks plus the 200-foot, below-ground haunt experience.

Better Every Year!

“Have come to KV for years and they just keep getting better every year. The artists go above and beyond. The makeup and effects are outrageous in a good way. If you love to get scared or just want to have a great time, then come on out to Kersey Valley Spookywoods!”

“This is the best haunted attraction I have ever been to! Lots of detail and a very high attention to the overall experience. Came for the first time last year and loved it so much, we came back this year. Will definitely make this a yearly tradition! Love it!”
