It's not on Lake St. Clair, but the Adventure Park in West Bloomfield is worth the drive for their "Haunted Forest" nights on weekends throughout October, featuring haunted trails in the forest, trick or-treating and a pumpkin hunt. This family friendly haunt is sure to delight the kids and give parents ample opportunities to photograph their children with the Park's friendly Haunted Forest actors.
During the daylight hours The Adventure Park forest is typically alive with people climbing and zip lining from platform-to-platform in the treetops. However, Fridays-Sundays this month, when the sun goes down, the climbing activity in the trees will be accompanied by a haunted forest on the ground-a frightfully fun adventure of another kind that kids and their families won't want to miss. There will be trick-or-treating for the younger kids on the Halloween themed forest trail.
The sounds of an enchanted forest will play in the background as visitors walk the dimly lit paths adjacent to the five-acre Adventure Park site. As your party proceeds from one chillingly fun station to the next our costumed actors portray fun and frightening creatures of the night. The trail concludes with a fun family style pumpkin hunt with some giant bonus pumpkins for the lucky!
