We have all seen it happen before at the movies. A group of best friends go to an isolated summer camp. After a first day of frolicking on the lake, making friendship bracelets, and toasting s’more’s around the campfire, everything starts to get a little creepy.

Now you and your friends can head to such a camp at “Terror Trails." Camp “Terror Trails” is an interactive, hair-raising camp-out which will leave you begging for more, or begging to get out! Reaper House Entertainment wants to take you on a camping experience you will never forget. The event is a 13-hour horror themed overnight camp-out that immerses participants into a “live” horror story. Camp Cedarcrest in Orange, Connecticut will never be the same!

Whether you’re performing a native ritual alone in the woods, escaping a band of marauders, or simply closing your eyes to rest, every camper will face the terrors that lurk in the darkness at some point throughout the night. Connecticut campers will be forcibly subjected to one or more of the following: isolation, sensory deprivation, gags, and blindfolds. At no time will participants be placed in any REAL danger.

When campers arrive on the grounds of "Terror Trails", they will be greeted with a buffet BBQ dinner, followed by a seemingly harmless, traditional scary campfire story…or will the evening suddenly turn to a terrifying nightmare?

You and your camping buddies will then be separated into groups to complete a series of dares, challenges, and missions. But beware! The woods are known to be infested with all sorts of spirits and creatures from the “other” world. The terror will continue into the dark of the night, however, ensuring sufficient time for participants to sleep - if they have the courage! "Terror Trails will conclude at 9:00 A.M. in the morning, after breakfast.

Participation in any portion of the night’s activities is NOT mandatory. However, those who elect to just hang out around the campfire and watch the latest horror movie will still be subject to random startles and scares. All participants must be over 18 years of age.

Tickets are available at www.reaperhaunt.com and are on sale now. Two dates are being offered: July 11 or July 12, 2014. Space is limited and based upon availability.
