SIDNEY — Get ready to be thrilled and chilled at Sidney Haunted Woods this fall.

Opening for its 18th season this weekend, the haunted woods promises to offer a really big twist this year.

“If you’ve been coming here for years and you’re really familiar with it, it will blow your mind,” said Owner Scott Schoffner.

The woods will be open at dark starting on Sept. 18, and be open every Friday and Saturday night until Oct. 31, weather permitting.

Visitors will be taken by truck about a quarter of a mile into the woods where they will be greeted by a guide. The guide will then lead them through the three-fourths of a mile trail of terror.

General admission is $11 per person. Military, ages 6 to 12, and groups of 10 or more are $8 per person. Children 5 and under are free.

Schoffner said, each year they donate a portion of their proceeds to a variety of local charities.

There is free parking, free candy, and a bonfire every night to warm visitors up and get everyone in the Halloween spirit, he said.

The haunted woods are located at 2232 W. Russell Road, look for the red flashing lights out by the road.
