Haunt Spotlight: A Petrified Forest in Altamonte, Florida


When you hear the name “Petrified Forest”, you might think of a forest frozen in stone, but that’s not the case during haunt season! A Petrified Forest is located within Central Florida in Altamonte Spring, roughly 30-45 minutes north of Orlando, located not too far from I4.

A Petrified Forest is great for kids and adults. Although they do offer PG-13 attractions, such as their Scare Trail, they also offer entertainment for your little ones. On top of the scary stuff, they also offer laser tag, live bands, food, backstage tours, and other surprises. You can view other special event information on the official website.


A Petrified Forest is open on select nights from September 29th until November 3rd (see the operating calendar above for specific dates).

Many different ticket options are listed on their website, which includes various combinations of different attractions. The main event (Scare Trail) starts at just $15, but you can combo it with a backstage tour for just $22. After Halloween, they also offer “Total Eclipse Nights” where they give you a glowstick to experience the haunted attractions with. The only catch… there’s no light. The cost is $20, but it sounds like a lot of fun and something worth being scared over!
