The Haunted Trail at the Adventure Center of Asheville

October 9 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


The Haunted Trail expands to a new home with more nights of fright! The 8th Annual Haunted Trail, Asheville’s only family friendly haunt, is excited to announce their expansion to The Adventure Center of Asheville. The same great experience local families have based their traditions on has moved to downtown Asheville and is doubling their dates. The Haunted Trail is the only Halloween event that is ideal for children ages 3-12 years old. The night includes a heart pumping walk through the Trail with live actors, spooky sounds, and spectacular props. The younger ghouls can enjoy the (actor-free) “Sweet Peek Tour” of the Trail at 6:30pm before it gets dark. After the Trail, try out the Haunted Glow Trail, an unique glow climbing experience for the whole family.

Committed to safety, the Haunted Trail will provide a memorable and safe experience. Our completely outdoor event is a no touch experience, and distancing and masks will be strictly enforced. Go to for more safety measures.

Have a family friendly fright night, and say Boo To Hunger! This year, The Haunted Trail, is supporting the efforts of MANNA Food Bank who is serving the immediate needs of our community. $1 from every ticket will go directly to MANNA to say Boo To Hunger.
The Haunted Trail is produced by Asheville Plays!. Asheville Plays! was founded by a local husband and wife team who create lasting memories through the power of play. The Haunted Trail is Asheville Plays! signature event, and they are striving to make The Trail a treasured part of your family’s tradition.
