Unique Halloween scavenger hunt

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Looking for something to do other than visit the ordinary haunted house this Halloween? Well, The Brazil Times has learned that Clay City has a spooky and mysterious secret -- The Trail of the Werewolf scavenger hunt takes place at the Clay City Visitors Center Thursday night.

According to information provided to The Times, the town has allegedly kept quiet for years about repeated attacks by a vicious werewolf. With each new attack, the residents have become more and more convinced the person changing into a werewolf is someone from their own town.

The Trail of the Werewolf is an interactive scavenger hunt to find who it is.

A No Scare Walk for the little ones, where they will receive treats from friendly local werewolf(s) and friends, is scheduled to take place from 6 p.m.-sundown.

From sundown (7:30 p.m.) to 10 p.m., the hunt is on as scavenger hunt participants (in teams of 1-4) attempt to expose the human counterpart before it "bites again."

Teams will be taken to their first destination in a hearse where they will be provided with one lantern and the first clue before their departure into the interactive experience.

For those participants who are able to make it through and solve the mystery, their information will be submitted for a drawing for prizes on Halloween night.

While waiting for the hunt to begin, professional make-up artist Rick LeDune will be on hand for souvenir photos taken with the Big Bad Wolf itself.

Fast passes are available for $6 when pre-registering at www.trailofthewerewolf.com, and must check in no later than 7:30 p.m. On the day of the event, adults' admission price will be $6 and children 6-years old-and younger will be $4 at the Clay City Visitors Center. Walk-ins should expect to wait a while.
