1) The Haunted Forest Ticket has been popular for the past two years for family fun-adventurous but not too scary so it's suitable for the littlest visitors. It gives kids the chance to walk in groups while they trick or treat from exhibit to exhibit. Friendly costumed actors at the exhibits along the trail greet visitors. The event includes some daylight hours for those that may not wish to walk in the dark. A pumpkin hunt concludes this trail where all ticket holders may hunt for a pumpkin of their own. Children are encouraged to arrive in costumes and interact with the haunt performers.

2) Optional – The Terror Trail. Not for the faint of heart this is for those seeking a really good scare. It continues as a separate path off of the family trail and offers participants a far more sinister walk. It will include "The Clown Terror Tunnel," "The Mannequin Forest (with some 81 mannequin heads), "The Voodoo Intersection," a display from a famous chainsaw movie and more. Numerous actors will perform in frightening costumes.

3) Combined Ticket - Adventure Park Climb & Haunted Forest – A great value. Enjoy a walk through The Haunted Forest followed by a two-hour climb at The Adventure Park that same day or select "The Value Pack"-Haunted Forest plus voucher for three-hour climb in 2017 season for yourself or to use as a gift.

Although mostly known for smallmouths, Lake St. Clair boasts excellent largemouths, too. Ask 10 bass fishermen to rattle off the best bass lakes in Michigan and if nine of them don’t mention Lake St. Clair right off the bat, there’s something wrong with your sample. Lake St. Clair is and always has been one of the best bass lakes—and not only in Michigan, but in the country. In fact, it’s one of the best bass lakes in two countries, as Michigan shares the 430-square mile Great Lakes connecting water with Ontario, Canada.

Lake St. Clair a great North American fishing destination
The Lake St. Clair fishery - which includes fish, people and habitat - is widely regarded as one of the best in North America, and provides significant social and economic benefits. Fish such as yellow perch (the favorite food fish in the Great Lakes) and walleye represent significant protein sources. Economically, the Michigan waters of the Lake St. Clair system generated $36 million in economic activity in 2004 alone. Fishing is, for many, a lot of fun, and as a recreational fishery, it provides many physical and mental benefits to people. Moreover, a healthy fish population equals a more stable ecosystem.
