Trail of Terror

Trail of Terror is a twisty, winding outdoor haunted trail in the woods of Wallingford, CT. Find features, dates, hours, special events, photos, website, tickets, directions, and more on Halloween New England.

Hiding in the woods at the end of a lonesome road is a world of fright and fantasy that will test one's mettle, temper one's cavalier courage, torment one's sanity, and taint one's soul. This vortex of dark entertainment is the Trail of Terror.
The Trail resides on four appalling acres of forsaken forest. The haunt scenes take up fully half of that area. . After entering the front gate, guests walk along the outdoor trail through 30 different scenes. Unsuspecting patrons must venture through crawl spaces, squeeze walls, across a rope bridge, aboard a boat, under a spinning carousel, and through a vortex tunnel on their march of mayhem. Over the summer, the staff change approximately 75% of the Trail’s scenes so customers are confronted with novel new frights each season.

The Trail of Terror’s award-winning website features a new theme each October which includes a back story on recurring characters. The complex narrative is then carried into one or more scenes in the Trail that feature the referenced characters.

The Trail of Terror has bent the minds of the innocent and benefited local charities for 24 years. The dominion of this operation’s overseer, Wayne Barneschi, began as a home haunt. Through enlisting the help of dark forces, a veritable coven of close friends and family members, they made the leap to become a professional non-profit haunted attraction.
