OPEN LETTER TO THE FANS OF DEAD WOODS TRAIL OF FEAR
It is our strong regret to inform you that DEAD WOODS Trail of Fear is CANCELLED for the 2017 season. We have worked very hard and were moving the haunted attraction in the OKC metro area . Unfortunately the land we had secured for the new site was not zoned properly, as we were led to believe before entering into a lease/purchase contract for this location. Over the last few months have invested tens of thousands of dollars and many hundreds of hours into getting the site prepped for the upcoming Halloween season (and other planned events like the Oklahoma City Renaissance Festival). We were quite surprised and heartbroken to find out that we had been misled about the property zoning. Upon learning of the zoning issue our executive team immediately reached out to numerous entities and individuals hoping to try and secure an alternative location. The last 8 weeks have been quite emotional as we have spent almost countless hours, exhausting every effort to make this event happen for our fans. With the dates approaching and a suitable location not secured we are sad to announce that we must cancel the event for this year.
We've been so blessed with the enthusiastic support and interest we've received from everyone so we will continue to pursue a location while dealing with the inevitable legal struggle we are facing. It is our hope that we will be able to secure another location within the next few months. We will keep you posted and sincerely apologize for letting you down.
We want to thank the following people for their support and assistance:
We also want to thank the City of Oklahoma City Development Services Division. Everyone we spoke with there concerning this event was very excited and it was a pleasure to work with them. We are definitely looking forward to working with them in the near future once another location has been secured.
On behalf of our entire team - We are truly sorry the event is cancelled for this year. We will continue to search for a suitable location and will keep you posted. You have our promise that we won't quit until we find a new location. Please stay tuned and continue to follow us on Facebook.
