Kersey Valley Spookywoods, Archdale

#3 of 6 in Things to do in Archdale
Spookywoods Haunted Attraction started by a dare of teenagers in 1985 to go into an abandon farm house when the founder Tony Wohlgemuth was 15 years old. After getting a good scare from a family of bats they decided to make a haunted house that fall. The haunted attraction now takes over the majority of the 60 acre farm after almost 3 decades of growth. Kersey Valley has a year round team of artist and builders with a passion for creating fresh new experiences each fall.

  • Spookywoods is a great place to go for a Halloween experience. Very professionally operated with commercial grade Concession stands and bathroom facilities. Spooks and scares around every corner.  more »

  • Such a fun haunted attraction! They have some pretty good scares and you can tell that a lot of work goes into making this a really detailed and well thought out haunt.
  • Tonight we wanted to get out and enjoy some good fun, Spooky Woods definitely made it possible! The whole atmosphere perfected the feel of haunted attractions in autumn. Instead of only offering a simple hay ride, S.W gives a variety of scary, yet fun things to explore on the tour. The price was worth every moment. Highly recommended you and your family & friends enjoy this local famous attraction.
  • This place was definitely worth the $35 for my general admission ticket! The scares were well done, and the actors were quite convincing (and polite). They would even make jokes about things you said, which was quite entertaining. However, I do not recommend going if you don't like strobe lighting, because it's everywhere. The park is split into 4 sections, 3 with short lines. It took my group of 4 about an hour and a half to complete everything. I totally recommend Spooky Woods to all who want a fun time and aren't afraid to be jumpscared :).
  • I had my first Spooky Woods experience, and I will not be returning. Most of the actors were bad. There were times that some of them did not even get up to scare. Granted, some people in my group pointed them out, but that's part of the show. IMPROVISE. The actors that stood in front of some of the houses did not entertain, nor did they give a background story to the place we were entering. BORING! There were also several times we walked for many yards without a goon or a monster in sight. How is this "spooky?" The 'hay ride' was entertaining, and there were some sections of the haunt that were descent, but not good enough to revisit.
  • Awesome! Not a long wait in lines. Loved the music and lights. The attractions were amazing and very scary. The workers are very courteous and polite! Will be back again! PS not enough clowns lol! MORE CLOWNS
