VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Your darkest fears come alive at a south Georgia theme park.

Wild Adventures opens a one of kind haunted trail Friday kicking off its Halloween events.

The trail takes you a half mile through a swamp and you never know what's coming around the corner.

There's only one way out of here.

"It's jumpy scary," said Nicole Jolly.

Valdosta State University student Nicole Jolly got a sneak peak of the haunted trail during the park's dress rehearsal earlier this week. The park was open for the VSU community on Tuesday night.

"I think my favorite part was that you couldn't see anything in front of you," said Jolly. "It was in the woods so it kind of had a mysterious foggy aspect to it."

You'll see maggots, snakes, spiders and scary characters including an inbred swamp family.

"The trail is full of fears one trail after another," said Micha Hogan with Wild Adventures. "You will be buried alive. You will have to go through some really tight spaces, walk through some creepy crittering creatures."

This year's Phobia is a half-mile walk through a haunted trail. You'll come face to face with your worst nightmares and what makes it even creepier is that your walking through a swamp.

Imagine being here at night. The fright is intensified with the sights and sounds of the natural swamp. If you're not in for a good scare, you can go to Kid-O-Ween.

"I'm a scaredy cat, so Kid-O-Ween is definitely my pace," said Hogan. "We have a hay bell maze, a craft station, a monster dance party."

The Blackwater Swamp Trail is the only one of it's kind, but enter if you dare because you're in for a scare.

Phobia's haunted trail is open Friday and Saturday nights all month long. Kid-O-Ween is open during the day on Saturdays and Sundays.
