The Haunted Forest of Statesboro is a local tradition, providing frights and thrills since 1980. First started by Professor "Mouse" Blankenbaker as a class project, the Haunted Forest has grown to be one of the largest charity-driven, volunteer-operated haunted attractions in Southeast Georgia. Once the weather begins to cool, the Haunted Forest ushers in the fall season, enjoyed by visitors of all ages. Supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Bulloch County, the Haunted Forest of Statesboro brings together the community while providing a terrifyingly good time for all who attend!
