The Haunted Forest
Think the Haunted Straw Maze was scary? Well, get ready for a whole new level of terror. Don’t wander off from the path as you try to make your way through the Haunted Forest. Unlike the straw maze, you don’t know where one of those ghoulish ghosts may be lurking. It could be in the tops of the trees, down by your feet, or anywhere. Stay on your toes and be on the lookout when you go to the Haunted Forest in Rexburg for the same price as the Haunted Straw Maze ($10). Their season begins Saturday, October 5th at 7:00 p.m.

The Haunted River
Surrounded by the mysterious stories of Reverend Elias (Eli) Barnes’ congregation and their intermingling with a local Indian tribe. The legend of The Haunted River tells the story of the feud that boiled over between the two communities. Fueled with hatred and greed toward the tribe, Barnes’ congregation sought to take the lives of the members of the tribe. But they were warned that if they were ever to cross the river that separated them they would ultimately face the wrath of Wanetaqua (The Soul Taker), who would drown them in the river. Let’s see if you are brave enough to find out if the legends are true at The Haunted River this season. Located at 501 N 3100 E, Menan, Idaho (just 20 minutes from Rexburg). The Haunted River is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 8:00 p.m. to midnight for $20 per person.
