8th Annual Haunted Trail

The 8th Haunted Trail has found a new home to haunt right in the heart of Asheville! We are scaring up fun at The Adventure Center of Asheville. The complete package includes a heart pumping walk through the trail filled with live actors, spooky sounds, and spectacular props. After the frights, guests spill out screaming and laughing into our Midway of Delights. The Midway warmly welcomes trail-goers with Halloween crafts, local food trucks and amusing, super-sized games and beer on tap for the grown-ups!*Midway is contingent on covid-precautions

The Haunted Trail donates $1 back from each ticket to your school of choice. The school that encourages the most participants, will win the Ingles Ghouls For Schools grand prize of an ADDITIONAL $1000. So gather your closest ghouls and give back to your school! (Click For More Info)

“Worth It”

We went with a group of adults and one kid. No one was disappointed! The Trail was less scary than some, but my 4 year old loved it, and so did we, so it was well done to satisfy all. Food, beverages for all ages, fun games. Worth It.

“Perfect Mix Of Creepy And Fun”

Great night for our 7 yr old, my husband and I. the Trail was the perfect mix of creepy and fun for us all. And it was a safe place for us to let our son play while we enjoyed good food and drinks. Fun for the kids and adults both! We plan on going again next year 🙂
