A walking Goliath will greet visitors along with the Headless Horseman of “Sleeping Hollow” fame, as well as a large assortment of zombies, ghosts and other things that go bump in the night.

The third annual Fear the Woods Halloween attraction opened last weekend at 3565 Highway 155 in Stockbridge, with a host of new activities and attractions for the brave and fearless.

Its owner and creator, Allen Grant, along with his wife, Suzie, call their attraction a “fun haunt” which this year offers more costumed characters walking the grounds.

It has more intricate audiovisual effects for guests to experience as well as an array of other activities recommended for those who are at least in middle school.

Its newest attraction takes the perennial haunted hayride activity to a new level of interactive excitement, Grant said.

Those taking part won’t just ride in a hay-laden trailer but will be armed with paintball guns mounted on the vehicle, which gets driven into Zombieland.

There, the walking dead will attack the trailer from behind abandoned buildings and from smashed automobiles.

It will be up to those riding in the trailer to fire the paintball guns and try to bring down as many zombies as possible.

“We are offering a much scarier list of activities for Fear the Woods this year, but all our activities are still safe with most inside a controlled environment for our guests’ comfort and fun,” Grant said.

The entire attraction is located on a 20-acre farm, much of which is wooded.
