Markoffs is Maryland's original greatest Halloween event. There is so much going on that you're sure to soil yourself! Choose from 2 terrifying trails, and while you wait, indulge in a dozen other spine tingling events from zip-lines to zombie hunts. The Markoffs have been freaking patrons out for the past 20 years, and every year it gets a little crazier!
Events at the Forest:
While waiting for your turn to head into the forest, please take advantage of the many events they have in addition to the haunted trails. These tickets are extra and can be added during checkout or purchased with cash at the event.
MHF serves a wide variety of hot and cold food. Hot Cider/Cocoa to keep you warm, and lots of candies to keep the sugar high, and of course some funnel cake to fatten you up and make you easier for zombies to catch! They serve Pizza (from local Pizzerias), Pork Sandwiches, and loads of other festive foods.
