Terror Trails....Yantis, Texas a scary good time!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United East Texas Division

We had the pleasure of going to the Terror Trails in Yantis, Texas last night.  Yantis is located in Wood County on Lake Fork.  It's about a 1 1/2 hour drive east of Dallas.  We were looking for some scary fun without having to stand in line for 3 hours and pay $20.00.  

The Trail of Terror is completely outside.  It's on a 1/2 mile path in the Piney Woods of East Texas.  It's good old fashion frightful stuff.  Some of the things you will encounter on the Trail of Terror are barking vicious dogs....chainsaws...a strobe light blinking maze....sounds of wild pigs in the forest....trolls....and much more!  They allow about 10 people to travel as a group and they run a group every 10 minutes.  We stood in line for about 40 to 50 minutes.  There isn't a lot of blood and guts which the younger children appreciate.   

We traveled north on Highway 69 up through Mineola and the went off through Quitman.  We enjoyed a nice dinner in Mineola with about 11 of our friends prior to the Trail. 

You can go to their web-site to get more information.  The best thing about it....the money collected (8.00 per person) goes to the Yantis Volunteer Fire Dept. and the Lions Club.

Sounds like a really good time.  I would appreciate the absence of blood and guts.

I went there for the first time this year with my boyfriend because my mom invited us down to it I had some friends that were monsters on the trails and my cousin let you into the haunted house it was a awesome time and I hope to go back next year not to go through it but to be something to scare people

We took some good friends a few weekends ago...and they took some good friends this past weekend.  They agree it's a great Halloween treat!

Terror Trails has been a favorite of my children. A few years ago we started going to dinner at The Links At Land's End first. Then we go to Terror Trails. If you haven't tried the restaurant at Land's End I recommend it. It is past Terror Trails on the same back road. They have a Chef in the restaurant and the scenery is beautiful. You can eat inside or they have a beautiful deck outside overlooking the golfcourse.
