About The Haunted Trails at Sir Henry’s
You can explore each trail with your general admission ticket. Here’s what each trail is about.
Trail # 1: “BLOOD MASQUERADE”
The Miklos believe they are direct descendants of Vlad the Impaler. In honor of their daughter coming of age, and to feed their hunger, the Miklos are throwing a ball.
Luring guests into their cellar, they trap them and use a variety of homemade devices to sypher blood from their victims. Will you thwart the allure or will you become a bottled memory ready to be consumed?
Trail # 2: “CAPTAIN’S FURY”
A young fishing captain is soon to be married to the love of his life, Abagail. But Captain Willem Jonah is soon sent back out to sea for work and becomes lost at sea forever. Abagail seeks to end her suffering in the only way she can think of: she jumps to her death from the lighthouse. Her ghost is said to be seen walking along with the lighthouse balcony, looking for her long-lost love.
Some claim that it is the ghost of the Abagail, but the old-timers in the village know what the truth is. The captain has returned from the sea. In his anger and pain, he takes his wrath to the village. Who is next to join him in the watery grave?
Trail # 3: “NIGHT MARROW”
In a small town, a cemetery worker notices graves are being dug up and left empty. After investigating, the constable discovers that the sawmill owner has been robbing graves and feasting on the bones of the deceased. An angry mob captures the sawmill owner and decides to hang him. In his final words, he vows to return and avenge his death!
Now every Hallows Eve, he rises from the depth of darkness and returns to the town. With the help of his loyal ravens, he hunts the living to exact his revenge and finish his throne. The townsfolk have taken to calling him Sidious. Will you escape Sidious or will you become another bone on his throne?
This year, this haunt is opening up alongside a book release.
Sir Henry’s Haunted Tales: Dark Anthology is based on the universe of Sir Henry’s Haunted Trail and is now available on Amazon. This book was written by two avid fans of Sir Henry’s Haunted Trail, with permission from the owner Zach, and provides insight into the characters and history of the Sir Henry universe.
