Wallingford was the place to go to get spooked into the Halloween spirit Friday night.
Hundreds of people waited in line to experience this year’s Trails of Terror.
What started in the creator’s backyard has grown into a must-do event for the past 25 years.
Each year the scares change and the crowds keep coming back.
“You know they are there, but they jump out at you and it still scares you. It was fun,” said Joseph David of Cromwell.
“We’re having a good time already,” said Ashley Kovacs of Danbury, while she was waiting in the line to get in to the event.
Twenty thousand people from all over the state, country, and beyond are expected to make their way through the Trail of Terror this season.
The scary staff volunteers their time, so local charities benefit from the fear.
Tickets sold so fast, there’s an encore event November 2.
