Horseman’s Hollow 2011

Are you ready to be scared out of your mind?

Adapting “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” to dark extremes, Horseman’s Hollow returns for a second year of haunted mayhem.

The 17th Century Dutch colony of Philipsburg Manor transforms into a terrifying landscape ruled by the undead, the evil, and the insane. Visitors begin walking a haunted trail, stumbling upon scary scenes of a town driven mad by the Headless Horseman. The Hollow’s unfortunate inhabitants are all too ready to keep visitors from ever leaving. Creatures, human and otherwise, lurk in the shadows, ready to terrify the unsuspecting.

Those who survive the trail must still negotiate a twisted maze of horrors too terrible to describe, only to end up in the lair of the Horseman where a party is being thrown in his honor. Heads will definitely roll…maybe even your own!

Think it all fantasy? Think again. That millpond is the very one that Ichabod Crane saunters around in “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” You’re not in Kansas anymore, you’re in the real Sleepy Hollow.

The event organizers state: “This event is NOT suitable for adults who are claustrophobic, have heart or respiratory conditions, are prone to seizures, or have other chronic health conditions. Enter at your own risk!” You’ve been warned.
