The Constitution Trail provides the perfect setting to get spooked! The Haunted Trail takes place on two weekends in October.
Participants should line up behind Normal City Hall Annex at 100 E. Phoenix Avenue. The haunting begins after crossing Vernon Avenue and continues to the Connie Link Amphitheatre (approximately ¼ mile). Be prepared to be spooked by sound and lighting effects (strobe lighting is included), spooky creatures and displays. Persons with conditions that can be aggravated by strobe lighting should not attend this activity. Glo-Ropes will be sold to the public. Free face painting and hot chocolate will be at the end of the trail!
Haunting begins at 6:00 p.m. through 8:00 p.m. on the non-scary (child friendly) weekend which takes place on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The scary weekend will take place the following Friday and Saturday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There is a strict limitation to 1,600 adults and children per night. As soon as the maximum (1,600 people) has been reached the trail will be closed
There is a $1 per person charge. The first weekend only canned food donations will count towards a free admission. Canned food donations will also be accepted the second weekend but will not count toward free admission. Donations will go to a local food pantry.
Could Scare Young Children
Please be aware that the Haunted Trail can frighten young children. The first weekend is less scary and more child friendly. However, children may still get frightened. There is no place to turn around once starting down the Haunted Trail.
- Please NO PETS on the Haunted Trail
- Skates and bikes are not allowed
- The dirt trail portion is not accessible to strollers and wheelchairs due to the uneven and narrow terrains (on Scary Nights ONLY)
