The Haunted Trail Returns to VSU Oct. 24-28

VALDOSTA — Valdosta State University Campus Recreation will present The Haunted Trail from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Oct. 24-28 at the Center for Outdoor Recreational Experiences Challenge Course. Due to the intense nature of this experience, only teenagers and adults 13 years of age and older will be allowed to participate.

“We are excited to bring this unique event back for the 11th year,” said Greg Knaus, a special events graduate assistant with Campus Recreation. “Visitors can expect the course to be longer and scarier than ever before.”

General admission is $5 per person. Discounted admission is available to visitors participating in one of the following special themed nights:

• Greek Night is Monday, Oct. 24. Any visitors wearing their Greek organization’s letters will receive a $2 discount.

• Think Pink Night is Tuesday, Oct. 25. Anyone wearing pink will receive a $2 discount. A portion of the proceeds raised during The Haunted Trail will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

• High School Night is Wednesday, Oct. 26. High school students with a valid school identification card will receive a $2 discount. Also, anyone who brings a canned food item to be donated to The Haven will also be admitted at the reduced rate.

• College Night is Thursday, Oct. 27. College students with a valid school identification card — like the VSU 1Card — will receive a $2 discount.

• Blazer Pride Night is Friday, Oct. 28. Any visitors wearing their favorite VSU Blazer gear will receive a $2 discount.

The Haunted Trail helps provide funding for Campus Recreation students interested in representing VSU at regional and national conferences, shared Knaus. It also helps support future events offered through the Student Recreation Center.

The Haunted Trail will be staffed by VSU student volunteers. The experience will last about 30 to 35 minutes.

VSU’s Center for Outdoor Recreational Experiences Challenge Course is located at 1300 Sustella Ave., behind the Student Recreation Center.
