Waterloo Sportsman’s Club Haunted Trail is now open

NOT SO INNOCENT TOYS–Pictured is a collection of ghoulish toys in one of the scenes along the Waterloo Sportsman’s Club Haunted Trail.

Halloween is fast approaching, and those out looking for a good scare should make a stop at the Waterloo Sportsman’s Club Haunted Trail.

This year marks the 29th year for the trail. It opened last weekend and despite a temporary power outage, Rick McMahan, who serves as the chair for the Waterloo Sportsman’s Club Haunted Trail, reported the opening weekend went well.

While a few new things have been added to the trail this year, like Pennywise the Clown lurking about, many of the crowd pleasing favorites will still be a part of the trail.

The maze, or “Maze of Torment,” was extended last year. It will be the same extended length this year and is awaiting more victims. For those that think the maze may be too much, don’t worry, there is a “coward’s way out” available.

Other returning favorites on the Haunted Trail itself include the vortex and the hayride at the end of the trail.

The Haunted Trail will be open the next two weekends on Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 20-21 and 27-28 from 7-11 p.m.
