Are you ready to take a long walk in the woods?
Darkness. It’s something we fear as children, and something we pretend we grow out of as we age. But we never really get over it. We just convince ourselves we’re fine, that the looming shadow in our peripheral vision is just our imagination. It has to be, right?
The truth is, no matter your age or what kind of person you think you are, the darkness changes you. See things, hear things, and imagine the worst as you plunge into the Acres of Darkness.
A haunted house is just that: a house. It’s a building that has been done up and created to terrify you. Audubon Acres puts on its haunt in a much more real and terrifying place—the woods, where you are literally surrounded by Acres of Darkness. With massive trees towering up above you and endless forest expanding around you, this haunted trail is a frightfully intimidating place.
With the moonlight hidden behind clouds, our only source of light came from tiny garden lanterns lining the edges of the trail, leaving wide gaps of darkness in between. Small scenes were set up, peppering the trail with creepy fairytales, as if you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole and awoken among a live version of the classic tales we all know…with a sinister twist.
Be wary of what lies ahead as you try to recall those classic tales, for you don’t know what you may find around the trunk of the next tree. When a young Snow White sprints out of the darkness to ask you for help, know that things are not as they seem. Keep your finger away from Aurora’s spindle, do not agree to a game of croquet with the Red Queen, and remember that just because you’ve found Gretel…it doesn’t mean you can find Hansel.
