No hayrides. No escape. No mercy.
Dreadwood is an isolated forest outside of Hudson, WI. It is not a park surrounded by neighborhoods or filled with cabins. When night falls out here it is very, very dark.
At the entrance there will be snacks and drinks (hot and cold) available for purchase, both before you enter, and after. There will also be a public bonfire after. Provided there is an after.
You will walk a half mile on a dirt path in the late autumn, so bring warm clothes and comfortable shoes. You may see things that disgust you. You may feel disoriented, stifled, pursued, and preyed upon. Your guide will know the way. You MUST stay with your guide. There are no side-doors or escape routes — once you have entered Dreadwood, the only way out is through. - Oct 7-8, 14-15, 21-22, 28-29 (Fri and Sat)
