The 3rd annual Terror Trail is back at Maple Crest Farm! Spooky season is here & if you love being scared out of your wits, then join us at Maple Crest Farm for one of the most terrifying walk-through experiences of the year!
You and your friends are walking through the woods when you realize you're in the wrong place at the wrong time and have stumbled upon a cult during their annual gathering to worship their deity, the demon Vahkor! Do you have what it takes to make it through the trail as they try to capture you and sacrifice you to their all-mighty god, or will you be Vahkor's next victim??
