Lost Hollows: September 29 - October 31

I've been down this trail before with a group of about 10, and though I'm not easily scared, it was awesome, to say the least. Minus two others, everyone else I was with was pretty terrified, including grown adult men. I highly recommend Lost Hollows for your Halloween pleasures! Also, on the last night of the month-long attraction, it's "Lights Out", and your only way to navigate through it is with a provided flashlight. Good luck!

Your trip begins in the parking lot of Spirit Halloween - 3401 Derek Drive in Lake Charles, LA., where you will board the shuttles to the trails. Few people know the exact location of The Lost Hollows. Luckily, your driver is one of the few!
