THE HAUNTED FOREST®
The Haunted Forest®, now in its’ fourth year, is a flagship Halloween event held in Johannesburg. The event has continuously grown since its’ inception in 2016, with this year taking a wicked leap into the world of horror and fright!
The Haunted Forest® will take place over three days and not just one! Friday evening will be dedicated to Teens while Saturday will be its’ most extreme, interactive and immersive experience in the forest with Sunday featuring a family friendly Trick & Treat.
The Haunted House, “The Asylum”, our newest addition will be open both Saturday and Sunday for those who would like their souls scared into oblivion.
Attendees are welcomed via the curated food village tantalizing the senses with the aromas of a variety of foods from barbecued organic meats to fresh vegan offerings. A big screen, picnic area, dam and a view of the Haunted Forest®, as the mist raises above the trees, creates an eerie greeting to the evenings activities.
Guests enter the forest with eerie sounds of shouts and screams along a haunted walk where anything could happen…will you be locked in a cage or forced to walk the plank?

The observance of Halloween, which dates from the dark ages, has long been associated with thoughts of witches, ghosts, devils and hobgoblins. Over the years, the customs and rituals associated with Halloween have changed dramatically. Today, many of the young and “young-at-heart” take a more light-hearted approach and the colorful festival has become family-oriented celebration.6
