Website Email Favorites



An adventure filled with legend, mystery and horror! As dusk falls on the river, climb aboard the boat that will ply the black waters enroute to the haunted canyon. During this creepy moonlit cruise, you’ll hear the legend of Whiskey Jack and the old mining settlement that gave the canyon its ghoulish reputation. Then it’s time to see if the ghostly tale is true, as your boat docks in an ancient grotto and you continue the quest on-foot, through primeval forest and into the dark, winding recesses of the canyon! Discover the source of the terrifying stories, from the not-so-abandoned ruins of the mining town to the ultimate fate of Whiskey Jack. But beware! Some secrets don‘t like to be revealed, and if you’re not careful, you may find yourself a part of the haunted canyon story . . . permanently.
