Augusta County Haunted Forest Gives a Scare for a Good Cause

Posted: Updated:

Deep in the woods of Augusta County, you can get a good fright for a good cause. A ride down the "Hellevator" leads you to the Rock Mountain Haunted Forest.

The Halloween attraction near Crimora benefits cancer research through Relay for Life. The forest raised more than $25,000 last year and now, it's bigger and badder for 2011, with a 3-D funhouse, a haunted schoolhouse and twisted carnival.

Scott Balsley, of Rock Mountain Haunted Forest said, "We all sit down and throw things, and it's kind of improv. You just start throwing out ideas, and the next thing you do, you've made something. And then one thing turns into another and another. We consider ourselves pretty creative."

The Rock Mountain Haunted Forest runs every weekend through Halloween.
