This is the last weekend before the Haunted Woods is closed for the 2012 haunt season. It's been a rough season with the weather cancellations, but things look good for this weekend. The Haunted Woods is put on by DARE and the Van Wert Community Club and run solely by volunteers. Your support helps put money back in to the community and ensures an attempt to provide a fun activity for people to attend. Looking at the weekend weather, you may want to dress warmly.

We went last weekend. I wish we would have known about "bring a canned food item, get a $ off". But we've gone to your "haunt" every year since we moved here. Loved the Haunted Hospital, too bad you can't go back there. The new part of the trail at the woods is really creepy though. We look forward to next year!

I think that you should drop the price of admission to $4.oo. I believe that you would attract a much larger amount of people & would have multiple return customers go through again & again. Gate prices of $8.00 dollars seems a bit extreme for a family who wants to take 2 or three kids through including themselves.$40.oo for 5 is a lot for many & I think that you could get a lot more repeat business at $20.oo for 5.

Its great that they still have this going on all these years later. I remember going as a kid and it still fallows the same path through the woods and ends up coming out at the same spot. Even though there has been some new things added at the end. I have to agree with the other comment about lowering the price. Other than a few strobe lights and maybe a little fog, there are really no special effects. Most of the costumes are just masks and face paint. Not like a real special effects person is coming in to do all the makeup. And here's a concept, if your going to run it for almost 2 months, why not change it up a little midstream, making people want to come back a 2nd or 3rd time.
