(Waseca, MN) – The newest haunted attraction is southern Minnesota opens tonight (Friday 10/20).
Sinister Forest is at Maplewood Park in Waseca and “Here, you will walk the archaic paths through the dark forest, as you try to reach the end without waking the creatures that live within the shadows of the trees.”
As legend has it, nine-year-old Abigail Mueller went missing in that area in October of 1839, with only her footprints found leading into a bog of quicksand-like mud and rotting vegetation.
In the years since, there have been many claims by people who reported seeing a little girl carrying her doll and in 2005, campers reported being chased by a girl in a nightgown. The questions of what really happened the day that Abigail went missing have never been answered, but somewhere up on that hill her remains still lie.
Sinister Forest is $10 and is open Friday and Saturdays from 6:30p to 10p.
Another local haunted attraction is Northern Frights at the Blue Earth County Fairgrounds in Garden City. Northern Frights includes a Minnesota Legends Haunted House, Phobias, Zombie Outbreak, Terror Tunnel and Killer Clown’s in 3D.
Northern Frights (Land of 10,000 Screams) is open Friday and Saturday nights from 7-10pm. Wristbands are $22 and are good for unlimited attractions on night of purchase only.
Among the reviewers comments “kept me on my toes and screaming most of the way,” and “the best haunt I have ever been to.”
