The Takhone Lodge announces the 24th Annual Haunted Hike, Friday and Saturday, October 25 and 26 at the historical Methodist Campground on the banks of the Des Plaines River, on Algonquin Road just east of River Road in Des Plaines.
The Methodist Camp first opened in the 1800's. With the old buildings and woods, the camp makes a perfect setting for a night of chills. The Hike travels through much of the camp, where the Lodge youth wait for the guests.
The Hike starts at 7:00 PM Friday and then ramps up to Extra Scary from 9:30-10:30. On Saturday, a Fright Free "Flashlight Hike" runs 3:00-5:30, then the regular Hike goes 6:00-10:30, with the Extra Scary again starting at 9:30.
The Fright Free Hike is a big draw as it gives the younger and more easily scared folks an opportunity to come out and have a chance to see how things work with the staff stepping back, removing masks and explaining that it is all make-believe. Kids will want to come back for the full treatment when they are older.
In addition to the Hike itself, we have a circus tent at the front with a rock band and other entertainment. Nearby, there will be a bonfire and everyone is invited to bring marshmallows and other supplies and stay a while longer. Make it a pack event or bring a group!
We hope to see you!
