On a scale from 1 to 10, how scary would you say Station 7 Terror Trail is? Why?

Of course we want to scare people it is the Halloween season! I would rate our haunt as moderately scary - 7 out of 10. We do not use a lot of gore in our trail scenes.

Does Station 7 Terror Trail's property have any real haunted history? Do you have a spooky encounter you'd like to share?

We are not aware of any real haunting activity, but being on a dark trail is really spooky and on occasion deer passing through scare people for us.

Many of my volunteers call me the Queen of Halloween. I became addicted to haunting in 2009 while working as a volunteer at another haunt. I love planning and building the trail out we make some of our props and I enjoy that a lot!!

How has new technology (i.e. animatronics, special props, etc) helped you to enhance Station 7 Terror Trail?

Wel, no spoilers for this year will be offered here. We do use animatronic props in some of our scenes. Some of the we build ourselves. I personally like building and designing props. Additionally, I love planning each year's trail and then making the scenes come to life. Lighting is key to a good scare!
