Terror on Wonderland Road back again this year

Haliburton's spookiest Halloween attraction will continue this year in a condensed version.
Terror on Wonderland Road, which features creepy (at times flat-out scary) scenes to explore, will be up and running on Tuesday – Halloween.
In previous years, the event has included mechanical ghouls with a frightening soundtrack hosted under a tented maze on the Wonderland Road property. Admission donations go to the local food banks.
Terror on Wonderland Road happens on Cathy Barnett's property and she said she's been working to get ready for Halloween, but this year things will be smaller than usual.
Time constraints due to work and lack of sponsorship for the large and spectacular attraction has led her to scale back.
"We are doing it this way because we didn't want to disappoint those that look forward to it and more importantly we didn't want to let down the food bank as the cost of getting in is a food and/or monetary donation," Barnett said in a message to the Echo.
She said organizers are intending to bring the event back to its larger size in coming years once some restructuring is done in terms of volunteers, materials and money.
She hopes even though it is smaller this year, people will continue to donate to benefit the food banks, which need lots of community support.
Terror on Wonderland Road is at 1280 Wonderland Road, off County Road 21 near Haliburton.
