If you are looking for a great scare and plenty of fun this Halloween, come out and support Campus Recreation as they host their annual haunted trail for all students, faculty and staff, and non-students this week.
Campus Recreation hosts this annual event for students looking for good entertainment without having to travel off campus. Most students do not have guaranteed transportation for off campus holiday activities.
By providing entertainment on campus, it gives students a chance to participate in events without the hassle of going off campus.
“I think it is a great idea and they are really thinking about the benefits of the students by providing a fun and accessible activity,” Tamela Golphin, a sophomore biology major, said..
The haunted trail usually attracts around 250 people due to their daunting features.
Some features include staff and students dressed up as some of the most frightening ghouls and monsters you can imagine lurking and popping out of the woods surrounding the trail.
The dreary music and bloodcurdling sound effects will also startle the most confident student daring to take on the haunted trail itself.
Most students are thrilled about the haunted trail and what they expect it to be like.
“I look forward to actually being scared,” Maquandra Craig, a junior psychology major said. “Most haunted movies and events aren’t as scary as they use to be.”
Campus recreation is hosting the haunted trail on campus by the Sustella parking lot in the Core challenge course behind the recreation center.
The trail will be open from Wednesday and Thursday from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., and on Friday from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. The haunted trail is only $3 for students with Ids and $5 for non-students.
