There’s something unique about the organizers of the 17th-annual Stoney Point Trail of Terror in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It’s apparent from their website: undeadfd.com. After undead, the “fd” stands for Fire Department, and this trail is put on each year by the men and women of Stoney Point Fire Department.
The Trail of Terror begins at Stoney Point Fire Department Station 13, 7221 Stoney Point Road, Fayetteville, NC (Cumberland County). Scheduled dates are:
- September 27-28, 2019
- October 4-5, 11-12, 18-19, 25-26, 30, 2019
- Halloween Night! October 31, 2019
- November 1-2, 2019
The trail opens at 8pm. Tickets ($15) may be purchased at the trail. No online ticket sales, so arrive early (ticket sales begin at 7:30pm). Ticket sales end at 10pm on weekdays and 11pm on weekends. Attraction hours may vary by attendance or be affected by weather.
In addition to the Trail of Terror, tickets are available for the Zombie Rampage — a live action paint ball zombie zone. In this area, ticket-holders ($5) are able to shoot paintballs at actors dressed as zombies from a platform with mounted paintball guns.
For children, a Trail of Candy will take place on one date, Saturday, October 26, 2019, noon-2pm. The cost is $5 per child. There will also be a costume contest for the little ones.
Note that the opening weekend, September 27-28, 2019, is “Public Service Appreciation Weekend” with a discount on Trail of Terror admission with valid ID for: Law Enforcement, Fire Department, EMS, military personnel, and teachers and their immediate families.
Live music is offered for those waiting to enter the trail. Genre varies by date and a variety of local bands participate.
Concessions will be on sale near the Fire Department.
The Stoney Point Trail of Terror, which is the Stoney Point FD’s big annual fundraiser, is run entirely by the volunteer firefighters, their spouses, high school students, and members of the community. All proceeds go to the fire department (nonprofit) which uses funds for equipment and continuing education for their fire fighters. Previous purchases have included computers for the trucks, air packs, turn-out gear, boots, helmets, training, and more.
