We have pulled out all the stops this year. With 2 outdoor scare trails, bigger and better! All new each year with more intensity and creativity than ever.

In our "Front Yard" enjoy impromptu characters, Live bands and entertainment on stage, vendors, great food, and as always, watching the unsuspecting guests run out of the trails.

This year A Petrified Forest is bringing back your past, your demented childhood on steroids!

All those sweet storybook fables your parents used to read to you, as you drifted into dream land...The ones that taught you all the little lessons of life.

They were a lie! A twisted lie to cover up the truth, just so you would go to sleep.

The oh so common little white lie, "There's nothing under your bed sweetie". That was just to get you to shut up and go to sleep. They never really looked!

Truth is... There ARE Scary Tales!!!

There are Monsters Under your bed!!!

and we have the proof. Come see it for yourself!

Review This Haunt
  • Love A Petrified Forest!!

    This was our 4th year. It has become a tradition, we come with the same friends every year and each year we bring more friends. The best scare actors are here! We look forward to coming every October! The staff is so kind and always incredibly accommodating! Two years ago, they gave my parents the red carpet treatment because of their special needs. Annie, Sylvia and Tina always go above and beyond to make everyone feel special. We are grateful for them and we look forward to coming back next year!

    I was driving by the the other day and can see the facade going up. It's very exciting to be able to see it coming together. This haunted trail is always awesome and it gets better every time I go. Way scarier than Halloween Horror Nights!

  • Can't wait for this year!

    I have attended this local haunt for 5 years in a row and each year it gets better and better. This scare trail has an old school, down right scary feel to it and they do do an amazing job. Even the laser tag and backstage tour was a blast! I can not wait for this year!

    We re in the full swing of this season and we d like to thank all of our guests and future guest for the support. We still have a couple more weekends and we re looking foward to giving you a great experience. This season in our area, there s Universal Studios, Orlando Haunted Maze, Longwood Haunt and us at the Forest. We re all different and we re all putting on great show. We did the math and for less than $100.00 (with coupons) you could pay admission to all of your local haunts. There s alot of hard work and money that goes into all of these events, so come out and support the industry in your community so we all can continue to be your halloween tradition. Thanks and hope to see you at the "Forest "

  • Havent' been to Universal, but this haunt was really good, great props and scenerios. Loved the mix of the outdoors and rustic run down haunted feel. Felt like you were walking through a house and into the woods behind it. Prepare to wait in line, I carried a mosquito coil while in line and extenguished it before entering and it helped a lot with mosquito control. Wear closed toe shoes, lots of sand and tree roots to trip over. Strobe lights at one point, consider if seizure prone. Wierded out by the use of children & their roles throughout, but they did make more creepy. Worth the $15 fee, wish I had skipped the other one we went to previously in Longwood.

  • I absolutely love this haunted house every year I go. This is well worth the price to get in, beats Universal studio crowds by far and much more fun.

  • great time

    My family and I went during my visit to Florida.It was one of the best haunted houses I have been too.The prices were very reasonable.It was my 9 year old niece's 1st haunted house and when she got afraid the monsters backed off a little.It was very good experience for her.We were a little dissappointed because the Laser Tag was shut down due to too wet conditions

  • The BEST!!!

    This is by far the best haunted house I have ever been to. I plan on going again next year. It was so creative and long. I think I was in there for about 15 min. So awesome!!!!!

  • Awesome

    This is a great stop for anyone that enjoys haunted attractions. The whole house and all its actors are top quality for a local organization. The line was fairly long, but nothing compared to Halloween Horror Nights, and they had a live band and scare-actors to entertain you while you wait. And for only $15, you cant beat it.

  • Wish the price was lower this year (2011) :)

    WE HAD A BALLLL LAST YEAR (2010) OMG!!! The bus was sooo creepy, almost felt like I was in the movie," Jeepers Creepers!" LOVED the glow in the dark part of the walk!! LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!

  • An English visit

    My wife and I decided to visit some of the local Haunted Houses whilst on holiday in Florida (to add to the ones at Universal). A Petrified Forest was easily the best independant house we visited by far. Great sets and great actors, although I do feel for the little girl sat in the garden who screamed at everyone who passed. If I'm fortunate to be in Florida for another Halloween, I will definitely attend this house again

  • entirely awesome!

    This year was my first visit to the petrified forest, and i came in with positive expectations. My mother had heard all about it from two petrified forest cast members who regularly come into the Denny's she waitresses at,and they gave us the distinct idea that it would be great. Our expectations were more than fulfilled. Great, well thought-out themes, phenomenal cast, and overall a really fun time. We were both jumping constantly. Although we saw many families with very young kids there, I wouldnt recommend bringing any children under 10. Also, definitely do NOT wear flip-flops. I did, and my feet were stepped on by the couple behind me, and my feet got pretty dirty.
