The Haunted Forest isn't like any other haunted house because it takes place in a REAL forest- with all the creepy, natural ambiance to go with it. There aren't any walls to protect you from the horrors that lurk in the trees, and no roof to keep out the howling October winds. Most indoor haunted houses take place in 30,000 square foot buildings; the Haunted Forest spans over 220,000 square feet of pure terror!

Based on Louisa May Alcott's classic novel, Little Women (and her  own family experiences), "Little Women: The Broadway  Musical"  follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America.

"Little Women" embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit. This powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope -- the sounds of a young America finding its voice.
