Woods of Terror Greensboro North Carolina - Scariest Haunted House

Woods of Terror – Greensboro, North Carolina

By Hauntworld Magazine

TO FIND MORE HAUNTED HOUSES IN NORTH CAROLINA CLICK HERE ... https://www.hauntworld.com/north-carolina-haunted-houses
North Carolina's Haunted Houses are some of the scariest and best in America!  Hauntworld.com rates and reviews the best and Scariest haunted houses, haunted attractions, and Halloween events in America!  Woods of Terror is located in Greensboro, North Carolina. Please share this page and leave your reviews of one of America's best and scariest Haunted Houses.  When you find yourself in Greensboro North Carolina go to Woods of Terror.

To learn more about Greensboro North Carolina's Woods of Terror visit their websit below. When you're trying to find the biggest, scariest, haunted houses you find them at Hauntworld.com

There’s scary and then there’s insane scary.  Woods of Terror is insane scary and has been ever since it opened 27 years ago.
Woods of Terror, a haunted house production located on McLaurin Farm’s 32 acres just off Church street in Greensboro, North Carolina, is the brainchild of Eddie McLaurin who designed and built all of the attractions.  By day, Eddie is a mild mannered, 6-foot 4-inch haunt entrepreneur. By night he transforms into a 7-foot horror monster named Bone Daddy, with a red and black mohawk as well as a 6-foot python draped around his neck.

“Managing a staff of nearly 175 people, ordering supplies, handling finances, and constructing sets…that’s the business side of things.  Dressing up every night and scaring people is the fun side of things,” said McLaurin.

This past season Woods of Terror presented over a dozen frightening haunts:

 “Arachnophobia” This haunted attraction features an assortment of live snakes, spiders, and other creepy crawlers.

“Creepersville” Fall is a time for harvest, but they won’t be harvesting corn.  The loathsome nightstalkers will be harvesting their favorite food…you!

“Industrial Nightmare” According to legend many years ago, a greedy company laid off scores of workers, and they still inhabit the shuttered plant. Every night they have a feast, and visitors are the main course.

“3-D Clown Town” This 3D haunted house is chuck full of scary clowns and childhood phobias, where guests go on a wild ride and wonder if the walls are really alive.

“The Blood House” Inside this haunted adventure, you’ll find a building full of beautiful lady vampires, but don’t be fooled.  These creatures of the night are looking for a special donation.

“The Awakening” This extreme haunted house experience calls up wandering, hungry zombies who want to have you for dinner.

“Horror Movie Classics” No haunt would be complete without Jason, Michael and Freddy, and Woods of Terror puts them in the most surprising places, sure to scare you silly inside the Horror Movie Classics haunted house.


“Blackbeard’s Revenge” is home to the famous and scariest pirate himself. Is he still alive after all these years? Are tales of his beheading just rumors?  This ruthless haunt will play with your mind leaving you frightened, alone and wondering what’s reality.

“Miners’ Massacre” Once the site of a tragic accident, the evil dead now haunt every visitor who dares to enter.

“The Slaughter House” is another extreme haunt experience where the bloody meat cleaver becomes the least of your fears.  Getting in is easy, but getting out…not so much.

“The Purge” The new founding fathers introduced an American tradition to build a better America by cleansing our nation. This is known as THE PURGE.  Inside this haunt, you’ll no longer fear the dead, you’ll fear the living!

“Blackout Terror” creates fear of the unknown, whereby willing participants agree to don a black hood, then make their way through a completely dark house.

“Monster Midway” For this haunted midway, they start off every night with a parade of horrific monsters and then sing the National Anthem and end with fearsomely loud fireworks.  While individual attractions may change from year to year, “Monster Midway” remains a perennial favorite and every night for the past 7 Halloween seasons, Woods of Terror has opened with this parade. Nearly 100 ghoulish monsters stomp the parade route, brave guests pose with them for photos, and the National Anthem is sung. “People just love our midway.  It’s a place for customers to shop in our Bootique, enjoy concessions, and stay for the music from our live DJ.  It’s fun and sort of sets the mood for the horrors to come”, said McLaurin.

Don’t let their midway fun fool you though.  These haunts can be terrifying for children and adults alike.  “Woods of Terror is so frightening that we rate our haunt as PG-13 and we do not offer child prices because we do not cater to children and no child under 5 will be admitted. In fact, I also tell adults who get scared easily not to come here, but that just makes them want to come here all that much more”, says McLaurin with a sly grin.   

With top notch entertainment and scary fun haunts, it’s no wonder that year after year Woods of Terror is named one of the nation’s leading haunted house hotspots and with thousands of visitors each night, Woods of Terror also has a significant impact on the area’s economy. In addition, McLaurin Farms is host to a variety of annual fund raising events to benefit local charities.  Even during the Christmas season, Woods of Terror morphs into the region’s largest festival of lights.

McLaurin Farm has something going on all the time, from breast cancer awareness events to special parties for kids with multiple sclerosis.  “It’s a way for us to give back to others throughout the year,” said McLaurin.
Question:  Your farm location has been around for awhile...correct? Has that helped you or hindered you into transitioning it into an October ScreamPark?

Answer: Although the land has been in my family for 4 generations and passed down to me, I started the Woods of Terror from nothing 27 years ago. I had to take what was a cattle farm and turn into a haunted attraction. 

Question:  What do you attribute much of your success to? -AND- Who do you attribute much of your success to?

Answer: I don’t know about the other guys, but my success is a result of hard work, and there's a long list of individuals who have helped me along the way. I have to start with Jesus because so many times when I was growing the haunt I was only one bad decision away from closing. So many incredible things have happened or have fallen into place that are unexplainable. You would not believe them if I I told you. Next would be family, starting with my grandparents who let me play out my entrepreneurship on their property. You could imagine their reaction when I told them my plans for a haunted attraction and how I planned to execute it. Next, my Dad: Although we do not agree on everything, he taught me to work hard and never quit. Also my Mom: She helps me to this day. My Girlfriend: She runs the day to day operations. And,the list goes on and on. My staff: I have a great maintenance man,great makeup artists, and some truly incredible actors. It takes a big team to make the dream work. And of course, it doesn’t hurt to hire a great public relations/ marketing and media buyer.


Question:  Your haunt is well known in the haunted house community and throughout NC for giving back to the community.  What specifically is your favorite or most memorable?

Answer: I have had several events, such as breast cancer awareness night, a trunk or treat for children with Muscular Dystrophy, a fund raiser for a local 14 year-old boy in our community who is battling cancer by supporting the “Do it for Johnny” Campaign to raise funds for medical bills. But my favorite way to give back is my scholarship program. Three years ago, I decided to give back to my staff so I launched a scholarship program for employees who "need a little extra help". Each scholarship is $ 1,000. My senior staff and I look for individuals who are deserving and are hardworking and dedicated to the Haunt World. The 1st year started with a 10-year veteran actor who was struggling to finish college.  We also chose a 2-year actor  fighting a medical battle but displayed courage and dedication by coming to work every night in spite of his illness. I have awarded these scholarships to individuals who are amputees who work harder than non- disabled employees and a staff member who is deaf. One year, a staff member who is wheel-chair bound needed assistance buying a new wheelchair. Basically, I give out two scholarships each year, one for a female employee and one for a male .

Question:  Over many years, the haunted house industry seems to go through frequent trends sometimes as frequent as annually.  Do you work with those ever changing trends or do you prefer  to stay more traditional with your haunt events? and why?

Answer: People generally do not like change. However, I learned awhile ago that changing my haunted attraction is beneficial and profitable for me. I consistently change about one-third of my show each year and will continue to grow and improve every year. I like to think that I know my audience and I try and evolve the attractions to keep my customers coming back, because it is exciting and surprising and most of all fun to be scared! The trend of using Facebook and social media has absolutely helped my haunt. However, the trends of zombie paintball or paintball hayrides I avoided.  It really just depends on what the trend is at the time. Some things water down my haunt, so I decide against them. I do one thing... I do Halloween and I do it right!

Question: What are your future plans for haunting North Carolina?

Answer: Just as I have done in the past 10 years, I will continue to bring in new things and exciting changes that have never been seen in a haunt before, and I will continue to train my staff so we provide the best actors in the Piedmont Triad which is a big part of Woods of Terror’s success.

Thirteenth Floor Announces Partnership and Acquisitions
Mon, March 12, 2018
Denver, CO – March 9, 2018 – Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group (“13FEG”), the premier multi-state operator of theme park-quality haunted houses, escape rooms, and related immersive live-entertainment events, today announced the completion of two marquee property acquisitions in the haunted house industry. The company also disclosed separate strategic investments by the global film and television studio A24 and C3 Presents co-founder Charlie Walker.
Today’s announcement reflects the company’s continued pro-growth strategy by bringing established branded attractions to additional markets, acquiring successful entertainment properties in select cities, and launching entirely new concepts that create a unique, superbly-designed entertainment experience for its customers. Founded in 2010 by partners Chris Stafford, Warren Conard, Daniel McCullough, and Jon Love, 13FEG has grown organically to own and operate a platform of live-entertainment brands with a shared commitment to exceptional customer experience, relentless innovation, and best-in-class production value. With the recent acquisition of both Nashville Nightmare Haunted House and the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride, 13FEG’s platform now spans ten cities in nine states, with fourteen haunted houses, seven escape rooms, and a wide-ranging touring business.  
“The businesses joining the 13FEG family are run by entrepreneurs with a proven track-record of success in this dynamic industry,” said Chris Stafford. “We are extremely pleased the current leadership teams will continue to operate these entities – now with greater access to significant resources, expertise, and visibility that our platform provides.  13FEG anticipates acquiring additional businesses with proven talent, giving us the best opportunity to accomplish our strategic plans.”

Today’s announced acquisitions follow those made in 2017 by 13FEG, including Scareatorium in Columbus, OH, and the location and other assets of House of Shock in New Orleans, LA.
“We expect to continue developing exceptional new properties in industries that enable us to leverage our live-entertainment development and operational expertise, as we were able to do last year with Great Room Escape, Mind Spark Escape Games, and Zombie Apocalypse Live tour,” continued Chris Stafford.
The minority investment from A24, the studio behind recent horror classics The Witch and It Comes at Night, as well as upcoming horror film Hereditary, will provide 13FEG with the unique opportunity to jointly develop cutting-edge proprietary content and marketing opportunities.
“A24 has been interested in immersive, live entertainment for some time,” said A24.  “We admire Thirteenth Floor’s passion for their business and the industry itself – it comes from such an authentic place. That quality, matched with their entrepreneurial acumen, is a rare combination which we are keen to support and see flourish.”
13FEG will also benefit from the renowned live entertainment experience and distinct insight of C3 co-founder Charlie Walker, through his new advisory role and membership on 13FEG’s Board of Directors.

“Charlie’s support and the involvement of A24 are both invaluable to our company,” said Chris Stafford.  “We now have a robust platform in place, which will enable us to grow into a truly diversified live-entertainment company.”

Coming March 2019

TransWorld's Christmas Show is a BRAND NEW trade show coming to St. Louis March 21-24, 2019, co-located with TransWorld's Halloween & Attractions Show!

TransWorld’s Christmas Show will be the ONLY industry trade show of its kind in the world. There is no other show that has as many exhibitors and holiday-related products. For three decades TransWorld’s annual Halloween & Attractions show has created the marketplace for the Haunted House industry and, in 2019, TransWorld will bring that knowledge and experience to the Christmas industry, providing THE place to network, get new ideas and purchase products. This show is a MUST ATTEND event if you are thinking about opening or currently operate a corn maze, farm, paintball field, family fun center, amusement park, zoo, aquarium, holiday retail store or anything Christmas-related. We have everything you need to make your Christmas season a success. Each year, the show will continue to grow with NEW EXHIBITORS, NEW PRODUCTS and more buyers on the show floor.

Have a question that just can't wait, or interested in exhibiting? Contact Rich Bianco at rich@haashow.com or (412) 812-1773

This is a HUGE addition to the Halloween/Escape Show.  Many haunt owners are now building Christmas shows or or simple producing Christmas haunted attractions.  Amusement Parks are also now creating Christmas light shows.  This event will take the show all the way to the end of the convention center.  We have it on great authority that Transworld has reserved the entire convention center 2019 and beyond which includes the dome itself.  The plan is to add other amusement related shows to this show.   This expansion gives haunted house owners more opportunity to expand thier buisness while at the same time giving the Christmas industry a tradeshow.
