The Empty Grave Haunted Attraction

(Dark for 2016)

50,000 square feet of terror! Can you handle what we have in store for you? The killings ravaged the small town. As the flood filled the graves, he killed, the grave grew stronger. Insanity filled his soul. The voices told him to kill so he did. Death was to only way to stop the screams. He went to the grave, digging to bloody bare knuckle, a hole so deep, it collapsed. In the darkness and madness, the voices grew so loud, it was he heard. In the bitter ground he died, buried, rotting to death.

But now The Empty Grave has been unearthed. And now the ground will consume all who enter.

This unique, timed haunt experience tells the story of its main character, Paula, and how her life falls hard and fast down a spiral of torture and bad decisions.

Haunted Trails – City of Laguna Niguel

Inormation updated for 2016  Welcome to Haunted Trails, also know as: Gallows Bend! Over three hundred years ago witches lived at the end of this trail, practicing their spells, and acts of magic! Dr. Greeten Sabit, witchdoctor of Crown Village, practiced the dark arts upon those who came seeking help for their ailments. Once the town uncovered the truth about the evil doctor, a mob was formed for retribution for those who fell prey to his experiments and rituals; that went terribly wrong. Although it is said that the doctor died, what happened on the night the mob met Dr. Sabit is uncertain. The evil acts Dr. Sabit inflicted upon his patients left a scar on Gallows Bend, leaving restless spirits roaming the trails. We use black lights, fog machines, strobe lights and scary music. The “13 evils” may pop out of the corners of the trail!

Wear comfortable shoes to walk along the trail. Haunting since 2001.
