Rain and Freezing Temps will not stop the Knights

CEDAR HILL, Texas – Northwood University student Knights worked through rain and freezing temperatures this week to place the finishing touches on their annual Haunted Forest.  Northwood University’s Haunted Forest is an outdoor version of a haunted house that the Knights look forward to constructing each year. 

“The students worked through the cold and rain in order to finish in time,” shared Shane Hill, Director of Housing and Security.

Students have the choice of being tour guides or dressing up as scary characters.  On Wednesday students constructed the trail by placing tarps and fencing. Thursday the students were able to get a sneak peak of the makeup and costumes that they will be wearing this weekend. The trails this year were constructed by recycling the old baseball bleachers at Knights Baseball field.      

Northwood University’s Annual Haunted Forest, the longest running tradition on the Texas Campus, runs the weekend of October 18,19,25,26 and 31st from 7:30PM till 11PM each night.  Admission is five dollars.  Haunted Forest is located next to the softball field at 1114 W. FM 1382 in Cedar Hill.
