As Halloween approaches, I have decorated my house, gathered new horror movies, and downloaded the audiobook of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to enjoy on my back porch on Halloween Eve. Now, all I have to do is carve a few Jack O’ Lanterns, and I’ll be ready for the night when all things run amuck.  Although, I will spend my Halloween at home, I would like to share with my readers an opportunity that they will not want to miss.

Last night, I went to the haunted attraction known as Psycho Path in Ellisville, MS.  Their complete info, for those who want to visit is as follows:

Myself and partner arrived early to avoid any lines, and we had the opportunity to speak with the ticket booth operator, a sweet woman by the name of Mamma Psycho.  In the time we were waiting, we learned fun facts about the path, such as how long it takes to set up and how frequently the owner changes the path, so it continues to surprise returning guests.

Before purchasing our tickets, we were warned that we could get blood, or dirt, on us.  Furthermore, Mamma Psycho stated, real weapons were used inside the path, and the actors/actresses were allowed to touch their guests, which could result in being pulled off the path.  By the way, if you visit in a large group, expect to be divided if your group is over 10 people.  The path can only take 10 people at a time, due to safety and small spaces, please respect this rule for your own safety and don’t hassle anyone about it.

When the time came to enter the path, we were led by a tour guide, who wore a bloody jumpsuit and a sack over his head.  Clutched in his right hand was a real meat hook.  His voice, guttural and menacing.  Behind us was his assistant, who was dressed as an erotic court jester from Hell.  While we followed our guide, and he spoke of the horrors that filled the woods, she took great care of us, as she informed when a dip down was coming, where roots were, holes, etc.  Because of them knowing the land that we walked upon, no one had any problems in exploration.

I won’t give away many spoliers, but I can’t describe the overall experience by keeping everything to myself.  The first scene we approached was interactive.  Our guide explained we had 30 seconds to make a choice, and the results could be to our favor, or not.  All I can say is, do it.  Open the door.

As we ascended the path, we went through a maze that became disorienting.  This is when the actors/actresses took advantage of the darkness and came after those who are walking through.  Once past the darkest section of the path, we were brought to a grim scene dedicated to Mississippi witches.  At this stop, our guide provided a story of murder and mayhem.  Besides the typical witch burnings, or hangings, one might expect to hear about, the story he told was unique and chilling.

From this attraction to the next, we had more actors/actresses attack, until we came to a location that harbored a bedframe with a sinister history.  The story that our guide provided for this relic is sure to make one feel like they are staring the devil in the eye.

Next, we were presented with a school bus, which we were told to load upon and sit.  Here, we received a story that is perhaps one of the most unsettling tales I have ever heard in a tour, which also provides, names, location, ages, and accuracy on the horrors that had happened on this bus.  As I listened to the tragedy that befell one poor girl, I couldn’t help but feel myself growing anxious with vibes that urged I was partaking in something forbidden.

After leaving the bus, if you haven’t already run for the hills, be sure your shoelaces are tied, because running will be important for the final scene.  After surviving the path, I was so excited about what I had experienced, I inquired with one of the actresses if the stories they told were true, or if they were just part of the show.  The actress confirmed, “Both, the stories are part of the show, but they are also true.”  Furthermore, she spoke about experiencing paranormal activity on the path, and how she lacked a rational explanation to debunk what had happened.

For the first time in a decade, I have experienced a truly frightening attraction, and I have no one else but the crew of Psycho Path to thank.  Prior to attending this haunt, I had no idea that not only would I receive scares, but I would explore a property that had collected haunted objects.  The overall experience made me feel like I had just walked through the Mississippi version of the infamous Warren’s Occult Museum.

Despite how intense this attraction is, it is family friendly.  However, if you have children who are inexperienced to horror, scares, or ghastly tales, I would suggest finding a babysitter.  Since this is a family friendly event, NO alcohol, bullying, or fighting is allowed on the premises.  Respect these rules and you will be able to experience the path in its full, adrenaline rushing glory.
