"Can I just say....fun, creepy....and yes....even though I knew it was coming...SCARY! went with my husband, children and grandchildren and we all were thoroughly impressed and distressed from the beginning to the end...surprise, laughter, screams. I can't believe that these folks aren't professionals...they were that good. Just enough creepiness to make your inner self wonder "is this real" We will definitely be back next year....and on top of everything else...it's for a good cause" - J.C.
"My sons and I visited the trails last night and we loved it! I was very impressed. I wasnt expecting much because of the price but this trail was better than a lot of haunted trails I've gone on that were three times the price! Would definitely recommend!" - R.B.
"Kids had a ball. It was definitely something we will add to our yearly traditions." - A.B.
"Journey Trails was a really great experience! We had a group of 9 that went through and we all loved the trail! The darkness and the creepiness was spot on, it's honestly one of the best haunted attractions I've been to in quite some time! Way to go guys, keep it up!!" - C.C.
"One of the best around!! We really enjoyed it! Highly recommend to everyone looking for a good scare. Great job Journey Trails, we will definitely be back!" - A.T.
"I've been going to journey trails every year it's been open for the last 10+ years. We started when my daughter was in grade school and now she is in a masters program. I would like to help other families make life long memories they way we have done." - JM

Yes, they are! This year your one price admission ticket includes both trails; "Brokenten" and "Life is in the Blood "
It is perfect for both large and small groups. Many types of groups come through Journey Trails (Youth Groups, Sports Groups, Co-workers...) for team building fun, or as a reward for a job well done. However we will ask you to divide into smaller groups of 6 or less to go through the trails as this will enhance your experience.
More than just a haunt, this is a GREAT way for families to have fun together, and learn together, especially those with teens and even young adults.
These trails are not built for children under the age of 10. However, if you have a brave youngster who wants to try, and they know the difference between real and pretend, it is appropriate and safe. However, we prefer this to be a fun experience for all, and do not wish to terrify anyone. So use your best judgement and perhaps find a sitter for the very young (and faint of heart).
If you don't touch them, they won't touch you!
Yes we do! Not only that, but every item is $1!
Our concessions this year features:
Hot and Cold Drinks
Journey Trails has been entertaining the community since 2004. We started on Mt. Castle Rd in Providence Forge, and moved to our present location in 2007. We took 2 years off for a reset in 2014-2015 but have entertained over 7,000 people since we began.
Many people think this before they experience it, but are very surprised with what they find. Just because we are a church doesn't mean we don't know how to have fun! In fact, we hold 2 awards for Special FX make up from the National Haunters Convention competing with well known haunts on the National stage. We also did a national speaking tour (Oregon, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania) that was well received presenting our original style of "Truth-based haunting to other, secular haunt owners across the country. You really just have to see it to believe it!
We use Timed Ticketing to help control the crowds. If you think you may have to change your tickets for any reason, you may want to use the purchase protection plan to keep your options open.
In order to guarantee your spot, on line ticket purchase is strongly recommended. There are no guarantees if, or when, you will get in if you purchase your ticket at the door, but yes, we do take walk ups for a small upcharge.
Journey Trails is more than just a haunt. It is a mind, body and soul experience. The two trails, "Journey to Heaven" and "Journey to Hell" remind you we will all someday die. By default, everyone is headed to Hell, but if Hell is not your desired destination, there is something you must do, and do it soon! That something, is to simply choose Christ, put your faith and trust for the salvation of your soul in the sacrifice He has already made for your sin. He did the work; He came, He died, and three days later, He came back to life. You just have to accept His free gift of salvation. Then live differently because of it. Jesus Christ has chosen you, and it's His desire that you will choose Him. The choice is yours.
If you have any questions about your eternal destiny, or if you are hurting, or want help with the next step of your spiritual journey, no matter what it is, we would love to talk with you. Please call us anytime, at 804-932-3967. Also, join us Sunday mornings at 10:30 as we learn more about our Creator and Savior and grow in our personal relationship with Him.
