The sights, sounds, and wonderful smells are incredible. So much for to enjoy. It was like stepping back in time to a more peaceful time. "

So much for the kids to see and do. They hand roast peanuts by the fire and offer them free. Kids love the haunted forest! Love it! Love it! Love it! I can't say enough. Wholeheartedly recommend it!
