Haunted Fort coming to Ti

TICONDEROGA - Who knows what slimy things lurk in the dark forgotten corners of Fort Ticonderoga?

Those brave enough can find out on Oct. 29 and 30 as the Haunted Fort opens the spiritually active nooks and crannies in the old stone fortress.

This popular event was resurrected in 2008 when it hosted over 700 guests. The tour this season is entirely inside the fort and highlights some new spooky spots.

Carved pumpkins will line the drive and usher visitors to the Log House. There the tour will introduce guests to some of the fort's less well known interpretive staff - the undead. They will be happy to welcome victims visitors on an exploration into areas never used before.

Star Trek Phase II Productions, lead by James Cawley, will again work with Michael Edson, major of the Fife & Drum Corps, to help with the gruesome props, make-up and an assortment of ghouls.

Haunted Fort is not for the faint of heart and not recommended for children younger than 10 years old. Warm clothing is recommended.

Fort gates will open at 6:30 both nights. Tours will start at dark with the last one leaving at 9:30.

Tickets are on sale now for either Thursday or Friday night at $8 in the museum store. They are available at the door unless sold out. Credit card orders can be placed over the phone and are subject to a service charge of $2 a ticket.
