Suwanee”s Sims Lake Park will be transformed into a scary backdrop for zombies and tortured tales of terror over the last three weekends of October. In cooperation with the City of Suwanee, the Aurora Theatre will present Terror on the Trail, a scary stroll through Sims Lake Park led by a legion of teenage zombies, who have charged a series of storytellers with sharing terrifying tales in order to frighten guests – all for the pleasure and sustenance of the zombies.

Tours, which last approximately 75 minutes, will be offered Friday and Saturday, October 12 and 13, 19 and 20, and 26 and 27. Tours begin at 7:30 p.m. with the last tour starting at 9:30.

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

On a scariness scale, the Aurora Theatre says that Terror on the Trail is somewhere between classic storytelling and a haunted house experience. While there are some special effects, nothing will jump out to startle visitors. The tour is not recommended for children under the age of 10, and it is strongly suggested that an adult accompany children 12 and younger.

Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather. The tour is wheelchair accessible, but strollers are not permitted. No flashlights please; zombies don”t like light.
