'Asylum' Tour to Open in
Granton's Haunted Forest 

FFA also Leading Forest Ed. Night
October, 2022


The Granton Agriculture Department and FFA have announced their third annual Haunted Forest. The Haunted Forest will be held at the Granton School Forest at the Granton Area School District, 217 N. Main St., Granton, from 7 to 10 p.m. on Oct. 14, 15, 21 and 22, for ages 12 and up. There is an entry fee, and proceeds from this event will go towards the development of an animal learning lab for the school district.


This year’s Haunted Forest theme is “Asylum.”  


“Guests will be led through the Granton Asylum to undergo a psych examination by the best medical professionals, ‘Doctor Death’ and ‘Nurse Nightmare.’ Travel along the forest trails to visit many aspects of the asylum, including the recovery room, basement, visitation room and more. Who will make it out alive and who will become the next patient to check in and never leave?” read a press release from the Granton FFA.


Concessions will be available for purchase and bathroom facilities will be available. All guests will be required to sign a waiver prior to entering the forest.


Visitors should be aware that strobe lights and fog machines will be used. Guests will not be allowed to wear masks while walking through the trails. Trails include stairs and bridges, which may be a limitation for some with mobility issues. Lastly, for the safety of our volunteers, filming of the event will not be permitted.


If not interested in the scare attractions, children, families and anyone interested in learning something new are invited to participate in a special Forest Education Night event Oct. 22 from 2 to 5 p.m.


“Walk through the Haunted Forest trails and visit stations to participate in hands-on learning activities. This an opportunity to see the Haunted Forest set up without the scare factor or darkness that goes along with the nighttime event,” the press release stated.


Freewill donations for the animal lab will be accepted at the conclusion of the Forest Education Night tour.


This event is put on by volunteers. All actors and group leaders are volunteers from the Granton community.
