Why is the Haunted Trail at Shelby Farms Spooky Nights recommended for kids 13 and older? Maybe you should ask the little ghost children swinging on the playground at the beginning of the trail. And be quick before their murder is reenacted in gruesome enough detail. The park is offering Zombie laser tag, a nighttime nature walk, and a headless horseman hayride for the younger set. But the haunted trail, an effects enhanced half-mile hike in the dark is for older halloween thrill-seekers looking for a serious scare.
