Terror on the Trail: Zombie Themed Attraction by Aurora Theatre Returns to Suwanee in 2012


Terror on the Tail by Aurora TheatreAfter the success of Metro Atlanta’s most unique new Halloween attraction in 2011, Terror on the Trail returns to Suwanee in 2012 featuring more nights, more stories and more zombies.

By day, Sims Lake Park is an idyllic retreat for four-legged creatures on leashes, children who frolic on the playground and joggers who train along the 7-acre lake. But beware the park after dark! Over three weekends this month, the park’s 1.2-mile looping trail will be transformed into a haunting backdrop for zombies and tales of terror.

In cooperation with the City of Suwanee, Aurora Theatre returns with Terror on the Trail, the last three weekends in October, Friday and Saturday, October 12 and 13, 19 and 20, and 26 and 27, 2013. Legions of teenage zombies lead the brave of heart through Sims Lake Park to hear tales of terror. Tours begin at 7:30 p.m. with the last tour starting at 9:30 p.m., nightly. Tours last approximately 75 minutes.

Tickets are $15 in advance and available at http://www.terroronthetrail.com/ or by calling the Aurora Theatre Box Office at 678-226-6222. Tickets also may be purchased at the park for $18. Sims Lake Park is located at 4600 Suwanee Dam Road.

“We doubled the number of teenage zombies from last year. More than 20 teen zombies will participate on any given night leading guests to tormented, tortured souls, who will recount tales of horror,” says Aurora Theatre Producing Artistic Director, Anthony Rodriguez. “It is said that legions of the undead haunt the lake. Our storytellers are charged with frightening folks for their pleasure and sustenance.”

Terror on the Trail is somewhere between classic storytelling and a haunted house experience. There are some special effects, but nothing will jump out to startle visitors.

Guests are encouraged to wear appropriate footwear and to dress for the weather. No flashlights please (the zombies don’t like light). While the tour is wheelchair accessible, strollers are not permitted. The tour is not recommended for children under 10; it is strongly suggested that children 12 and younger be accompanied by an adult.
