Customer Reviews

 

"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.

YES! All proceeds go to help support the ministries and building fund of New Hope Church and Food Pantry. Thank you for your support!

Yes, there are two walking trails.

  • The Journey to Heaven (Don't let the title fool you. It's not Heaven, it's the journey there)
  • The Journey to Hell 

These are natural, wooded, walking trails in the deep, dark woods of New Kent. Wear good walking shoes!

Yes, they are!

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.

This is a GREAT way for families to have fun together, especially families with teens. Why should kids have all the fun? Adults love the trails even more than kids. There are scares on various levels of intelligience.

As long as the child knows the difference between real and fake, children are usually fine. Our actors are
instructed to be sensitive to very young children.

However we recommend you keep very small children at home, and use this night for bonding and teaching times for your older children, grandchildren, teens and young adults.

If you don't touch them, they won't touch you!

Yes we do! We have hot dogs, chili, nachos and hot and cold drinks.

Journey Trails began in 2004. We took 1 year off for a reset in 2015

Advance Purchased, Timed Ticketing, is required to control the flow of attendees
Last minute add on to a group is fine as long as they go in with your group
This is an outdoor event, patrons may wear masks at their discretion

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! We have actually won 2 awards at the National Haunters Convention Make up Wars for our special fx make up, 2 years in a row, against secular haunts on the National stage. But don't take our word for it. Read the reviews, and come see for yourself.

In order to help control the crowds, Timed Ticketing is mandatory this year. There is a $5 upcharge to change your reservation, and it must be done on line prior to the event.

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 tickets at the door.

But for Real...Choose Your Destiny
"But I will tell you whom to fear, Fear God, who has the power to kill you and then throw you into hell. Yes, He's the one to fear." Luke 12:5

 

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" make you think about the fact that you will die someday. By default, everyone is headed to Hell, but if Hell is not your desired destination, you must do something about it, and do it soon! That something, is to simply choose Christ, and the sacrifice He has already made for your sin. He did the work, you just have to accept His free gift of salvation. Then live life differently because of it. Jesus Christ desires for you to choose Him. Will you?

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. Or join us on Friday nights as we praise and worship our Creator and Savior, and hear relevant messages from God's Word.
