**this Needs To Be Paid For* ** Get our Spook on~* at the FAMOUS TrailTerror!


When does the Trail open?
The Trail opens at approximately 7pm on October 4, 5 | 11, 12, 13 | 18, 19, 20 | 25, 26, 27 & Nov. 1st & 2nd

What are my options for tickets?

We listened to your suggestions on ticketing and wait times and have crafted a solution based on your concerns. The main concerns of General Admission purchasers were the long lines and availability of the Timed Ticketing. Due to this, we have increased the amount of Timed Tickets and limited General Admission.

I'm thinking about October 27th for a date -------
The time depends on availablility.

***Right now I'm looking for interest in this activity. I'm highly suggesting spending the $20 to purchase a time slot. It is for charity you know :-)

$20 Timed Ticketing after September 1st. (Still a good deal because you get in during your chosen time slot and are guaranteed admittance.)

$15 General Admission, if there's any tickets available after the Timed Tickets above are sold we will have these at the event. We are limiting the amount of tickets sold at the event so to ensure admittance, it is strongly recommended to purchase timed tickets ahead of time.

How can I purchase tickets?
Timed Tickets can be purchased online.

You have Sold Out for the evening I wish to attend, are tickets available at the event?
Unfortunately, no. Unlike previous years in which we still had General Admission tickets available if our Online Timed Tickets Sold Out, this is no longer the case. We have restructured to allow for more Timed Tickets to alleviate long lines, therefore if we Sell Out online we are Sold Out on-site as well.

I purchased a Timed Ticket, now what?
Timed Tickets are broken up in to hour slots starting at 7pm with the last slot ending at 11pm. For example if you purchased a ticket for the 8pm-9pm time slot for October 2nd you can arrive during that hour and enter the designated line for that slot. At 8pm we will begin letting in that time slots guests. If you see it posted online that the Trail is sold out for the evening this only pertains to walk up general admission tickets and on site VIP Passes. Online speed pass tickets are still honored.

How late is the Trail open until?
The Trail is open until 11pm Fridays and Saturdays and until 10pm on Sundays. However the Trail may sell out of tickets for the night and close the gates earlier than the times posted. All guests who are present before we close the line off to new guests or arrive with online speed pass tickets will enter.

Does the Trail donate all their proceeds and are all the staff volunteers?
It is true, the outrageous staff of the Trail of Terror is made up entirely of volunteers. Our staff are also as dedicated to community charities as they are to maniacal merrymaking. Over the years, the Trail donated $700,000 to the Wallingford, CT chapter of the Red Cross. The Trail now benefits the Wallingford Emergency Shelter, works closely with C.R.E.W. (Community Revitalization Efforts of Wallingford) to support students who provide humanitarian aid in areas where it is most needed as well as donating to other various local charities in need. See our Donations website for a complete list.

What happens during unfavorable weather?
The Trail of Terror is an outdoor event, unfavorable weather conditions such as rain, high winds or thunderstorms can cause unsafe conditions for both you our guests and the creatures of the Trail. In event of a weather closing an announcement will be posted on trailofterror.com, Facebook and Twitter by 5pm of that night. Prepaid tickets for canceled nights can be transferred to another night.

Since the Trail is outdoors, can I smoke?
No, although we are an outdoor event the entire Trail of Terror property, including anywhere past our gates (line areas, concessions, restrooms, etc) are smoke free. If you must smoke and are still in line for the Trail you must exit the Trail and smoke on the road. Guests found smoking on the property risk being asked to leave.

Are costumes, masks or makeup allowed?
No, any guest that enters the Trail of Terror wearing a costume, mask or makeup will be asked to remove these items. If they are unable to comply to that request they will not be allowed to enter.

Is the Trail suitable for children?
Parents need to take an active role in determining whether or not their children should go through the Trail of Terror. We do not recommend children under the age of 10 walk the Trail and strongly recommend young children do not attend. Infants and children under 5 are not allowed.

Can I send someone to save a place in line for my group if we are arriving late?
No, the sending of a small group to hold places in line for a larger group is strictly prohibited. The line to enter the Trail is formed in a first come first served basis.

What should I wear?
The Trail is an outdoor event that takes place during the month of October. We recommend clothing that you will be comfortable in for a few hours outside. You will be walking in the woods so comfortable footwear is highly recommended.

I have condition X, Y or Z should I come to the Trail?
You should not enter the Trail of Terror if you suffer from any physical or mental ailments such as asthma, heart condition, vertigo, seizures, respiratory condition, or any type of intense phobia or if you are pregnant. Please see our list of posted warnings for more information.

The Trail is an outdoor event that uses special effects, theatrical smoke, strobing lights, loud music/sound effects, unsteady/uneven ground, etc. If you believe that any of these will cause you undo physical or mental harm please do not come to the Trail. If you have specific questions don't hesitate to contact us with them at [masked]. Please allow for an up to one week reply.

    Hi everyone!

    Let's meet at the Walmart in Wallingford. It's less than a 5 minute ride from their parking lot. I'll be driving a tannish ford escape. I'll be parked far from the store, but close to route 5 - the main drag. Lets's plan on meeting there by 6:45PM and head to the trail of terror together.

    We'll leave the Walmart parking lot by 6:55 PM SHARP!!!

    Text me if you need to --- (Check your email for my cell number)
