The 9th Annual Haunted Sawmill - "Unveiled Fairy Tales" is going to take you in a direction you've never experienced before. This year Vincent and his Scare Crew will disassemble your favorite stories and beloved childhood characters and make nightmares out of them.

An ancient evil laid buried deep beneath the grounds upon which the Merrill Sawmill was built. It whispered to the Morris brothers and twisted them into inhumane monsters. It brought Vincent back from the dead over and over again to act as its physical agent to bring terror to the world. That evil has a name and it is called Malus. With his two companions, Keres and Adrestia, two powerful spirits in their own right, Malus has taken mortal form. The Haunted Sawmill has been turned upside down and inside out based on Vincent's dreams and mania. You think you know the Haunted Sawmill? You haven't seen nothing yet.

Launched in 2011 by a group parents from a Merrill Boy Scout troop, the Haunted Sawmill as helped many scouts experience Boy Scouts camps, adventures, and other outings that makes the scouting experience memorable. Ranks of volunteers have expanded decided to give back to their community by collecting donations for local food pantry and the Lincoln County Humane Society. Haunted Sawmill is not affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America.The event has consistently expanded since its launch and the theme and layout of the haunt shifts each season. Volunteers make the event successful and funds raised are available to youth volunteers through scholarships for a variety of enrichment activities. Since its founding, thousands of people have experienced the wrath of Vincent Mudgett and his many ghouls.

Guests will experience tight spaces, uneven and shifting floors, strobe effects, 3D effects, compressed air effects, blacklights, loud noises, jump scares, gore, fog, and a rotating hallway. Maybe even an existential crisis. Actors do not touch participants and language and effects are "Pg13."

Snacks are available in line and after the haunt. Merchandise is also available after the haunt. All parking is street side. Any guests consuming alcohol or smoking on premises will be asked to leave.
