   GREENSBORO — The scares begin as soon as you walk through Woods of Terror’s gates.
Visitors wait in the Monster Midway for a chance to walk through The Haunt. While there, visitors can enjoy games, food and pose for photos with characters.
Woods of Terror has 12 themed sections for visitors to walk through and it is the largest haunted attraction in the state.
Some of the themes include Industrial Nightmare, Arachnophobia and Miner’s Massacre. You will see characters you recognize, such as Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers. Camp Crystal Lake also is a scene that visitors can navigate, complete with a campfire, cabins and cicadas. Some of the attractions include small tunnels that visitors squeeze through to get to the next part of The Haunt.
   Though the actors are not allowed to touch you, they will get close and there are multiple props that spring out in front of you. The Haunt takes about 45 minutes to get through, but it feels like forever when you are screaming around every corner. At the beginning of each attraction, you are greeted by a character coordinating with the theme of the section that will give you directions on how to navigate that passage. There are strobe lights, smoke machines, 3-D effect rooms, lots of tight spaces and plenty of scares.
Woods of Terror does not disappoint and is a must-attend event for anyone who loves Halloween.

Woods of Terror is located at 5601 N. Church St., Greensboro. Hours are 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Thursdays and Sundays; 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m Fridays; and 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Saturdays now through Nov. 2. Tickets are $15 and up. For more details, visit woodsofterror.com or call 336-643-3558.
