Coming off the very busy summer season, Woodloch Pines, an award-winning, all-inclusive family resort located in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, appreciates the calm of fall. The gorgeous autumnal hues of the changing foliage, the smell of crisp leaves and burning campfires combined with perfect mild temperatures come to mind. For those in the know, fall also marks the start of Woodloch’s signature Haunted Hayrides, one of the family resort’s most popular annual attractions.

For over 25 years now, Woodloch has been thrilling guests with their captivating Haunted Hayrides, which have only become more involved over time. Wagon rides weave through the Pocono resort’s heavily wooded nature trail, showcasing extravagant decorations themed after famous horror films. Woodloch’s enthusiastic activity staff jump at the chance to morph into spooky characters, upping the fright factor for guests. The Haunted Hayrides include sound effects, pyrotechnics, expert lighting and professional costumes and makeup on staffers. New for 2018 are scenes themed after blockbuster horror hits such as Slender Man, Michael, and The Hills Have Eyes.

In addition to their trademark Haunted Hayrides, Halloween stays at the all-inclusive resort feature:

  • Pumpkin Painting
  • Trick or Treating
  • Halloween Costume Parties with games and prizes
  • Competitive contests such as “Halloween Wars,” Scavenger Hunt & “Boo-Lympics”
  • Indoor pool, hot tubs, and Splash Zone featuring a double corkscrew super slide and “Superdome” water tower which sends 300 gallons of water splashing down every few minutes
  • Some of the family resort’s most popular amenities such as a zip-line and climbing wall, go-karts, bumper cars, and a Broadway-style theme show

Woodloch’s activities director, Joey Ranner, remarks, “You truly have to experience our Haunted Hayrides firsthand to ‘get’ what they’re all about. Each year, our staff outdoes themselves getting into character, crafting costumes and creating extra spooky scenes. The reaction from our guests is priceless! It sounds crazy, but we all get excited about this time of year as soon as it ends the year prior.”

Halloween Weekend rates start at $199 per adult, per night. To obtain more information or to book a stay, please visit www.woodloch.com or call 1-800-Woodloch.
