Haunted Places and Scary Attractions in Acadiana
As we are getting ever closer to Halloween night, some people might be looking for a place to be scared out of their wits! Others may just want to have some Halloween fun.
There are several places and events throughout Acadiana that can offer you various types of Halloween experiences.
Want to Be Really Scared?
Fright Trail in Scott is a wooded attraction where patrons can get "scare after scare". It's a trail full of all of the scary things about Halloween. The attraction is recommended for people 8 and older, and if children are younger than 10 they must have an adult with them.
This place in Scott is not playing. People will jump out at you, it's in a wooded area, and you could get so freaked out that you will want to run out of the place.
Fright Trail is open Friday and Saturday nights in October. Then they will have two special event nights, Sunday, October 30, and Monday, October 31. It's called 'Lights Out, Flashlights Nights.'
Frightmare on Main Street in New Iberia is held in an old house at a corner on Main Street. From their website, "We are dedicated to one purpose and that is to make you scream like a child, no matter how old you are. Beware what is lurking in the dark corners." Hey, it looks haunted, and I am betting you're going to be frightened right out of your shoes!
Organizers say this New Iberia attraction is the perfect scary setting for anyone who wants to be frightened out of their wits. They are open on Friday and Saturday nights in October, and they will be open on Sunday, October 30.
