Dreadwood Haunted Forest - Final Year

Visit Website Add to My Favorites

It's the FINAL year of Dreadwood Haunted Forest, a terrifying Twin Cities Halloween attraction that takes groups of 12-14 people through an abandoned forest in the backwoods of Hudson, WI, is an event put on by the Dreadwood Foundation, an official 501c3 non profit organization that has raised $180,000 for local charities since its opening in 2010. Each year hundreds of volunteers come together to scare for the greater good and to partake in a truly horrifying and memorable Halloween experience.

Dreadwood’s haunted trail is open Fridays and Saturdays in October for a total of 8 nights.

No hayrides. No escape. No mercy.

Dreadwood is an isolated forest outside of Hudson, WI. It is not a park surrounded by neighborhoods or filled with cabins. When night falls out here it is very, very dark.

At the entrance there will be snacks and drinks (hot and cold) available for purchase, both before you enter, and after. There will also be a public bonfire after. Provided there is an after.

You may see things that disgust you. You may feel disoriented, stifled, pursued, and preyed upon. Your guide will know the way. You MUST stay with your guide. There are no side-doors or escape routes — once you have entered Dreadwood, the only way out is through.

All participants must sign a waiver.
