The legend of Twisted Trails and Muck Manor

Some places are meant to be avoided. . . left alone; untouched. Twisted Trails and the mysterious Muck Manor are among these places. Anyone who trespasses these grounds is either brave, foolish, or both. Baylor Von Muck was one of these men. . . brave or foolish? You decide.

Baylor Von Muck built his estate within the cursed woods of Twisted Trails, ignoring local legends and warnings from The Witch that dwells within them. . . a grave mistake. The Witch is a dangerous sorceress known for capturing and cursing any visitors who dare to cross her path. Muck Manor, once a magnificent estate, was cursed into eternal ruin by The Witch, and is now surrounded by the murky, creature-infested bayou and forest. Baylor Von Muck and his staff are now trapped in this endless nightmare, bound to wander the grounds for all eternity. Beware as you enter this dreadful place. . . you may become part of it.

Can we take photos at your attraction?

No. All attractions at Twisted Trails Haunted Attraction are very dark environments and everyone’s eyes, especially the actor’s eyes, adjust to being outdoors at night.

Please also do not take any photos or videos while on the trails or in Muck Manor.

Will the actors touch us?

No, our actors are highly trained and professional. You will not be grabbed or touched by any actors but they will get very close at times. Occasionally you may brush up against their costumes or props. You may also come into contact with some of the sets.
