Enjoy Spooktacular Fun at Two Halloween “BOOnanza on the Mountain” Weekends

FARMINGTON, PA (September 30, 2016) – Nemacolin Woodlands Resort takes Halloween adventure to new heights with its “BOOnanza on the Mountain” experience Oct. 21-22 and Oct. 28-29.

Each night beginning at 6 p.m. and continuing well into the evening, there’s plenty of action-packed family fun. Activities range from zombie target paintball to high-flying zip line tours to Nightmare Jeep® Ride-alongs. There’s also a climbing wall, cosmic bowling and Louie’s Haunted Train Ride, in which riders use red night-vision lights to spot exotic animals in the dark.

After the event’s successful launch last October, director of activities Mandy Burnsworth promises more fun and adventure in 2016. New this year are 50-foot free-fall plunges via the QuickJump tower and live music each Saturday.

“We wanted to do something different for Halloween, and BOOnanza on the Mountain came together nicely. It’s not so much like the haunted houses in the area, it’s more of a nighttime adventure package with haunted elements,” said Burnsworth. “It’s really a cool, family-oriented event. I’m hoping we’ll draw more people by adding live music on Saturday nights, and we definitely want to amp up the Nightmare Jeep Ride-alongs because that was a hot ticket last year. Everybody loved those.”

BOOnanza on the Mountain takes place at the resort’s Sundial Lodge. The upstairs Apex restaurant and bar is open all four nights, and all activities are open to resort guests and the general public.

The best way to experience the event is with a BOOnanza Pass. Passes are $35 per person and include QuickJump; zombie target paintball; the rock climbing wall; the Fatbird SuperFlyer zip line; cosmic bowling; Louie’s Haunted Train Ride; and a Kidz Korner with crafts, games and a bounce house.

Headless Horseman carriage rides take place 6 to 9 p.m. at a cost of $60 per ride for up to six people. Carriage rides are 20 minutes long and reservations are required. Nightmare Jeep Ride-alongs run from 8 to 10 p.m. at a cost of $125 a ride for up to four people. Jeep rides last 30 minutes and reservations are required.

A special treat occurs at 5 p.m. each evening at the animal habitat. Burnsworth and her staff lead folks on free wolf encounters. “We do a feeding and talk with guests about wolves and fun folklore about werewolves,” Burnsworth said.

The final night – Saturday, Oct. 29 – features additional fun for kids with Halloween face painting in the lobby of the Chateau Lafayette hotel from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., followed by a trick-or-treat parade to various retail outlets throughout the facility for Halloween treats.
