The third annual event raises funds for Hancock's basketball teams
Prepare for a night of fright as the men's basketball program hosts the third annual "Frightmare Forest" haunted maze. The event is a fundraiser for Hancock's basketball programs.
The maze is located in the college's baseball and softball complex and is adjacent to the vineyard off College Drive.
Maze runners brave enough to enter the eerie, three-acre labyrinth will navigate their way through an entanglement of tricks and spooky surprises. Each participant will receive a color-coded wristband to forewarn Frightmare workers to scare or scale back.
"Green means, 'Go for it! Scare me!' so, we're going to scare you," said Tyson Aye, head coach of the men's basketball program. "But, we also want everyone to have fun and enjoy, so we definitely tone it down once we see the other wristband."
Frightmare Forest will run from 6:30 to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings from October 20-28.The maze will also be open Halloween night on Tuesday, October 31. Maze runners are invited and encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes.
"We want to have as many people in the community come out for the event," added Aye. "It's a win-win when we can bring people together for fun and support our athletics programs at the same time."
Tickets for the maze are $10 per person. Proceeds will be used for equipment, travel and other expenses related to running the men's and women's basketball programs.
Free parking and the entrance to the maze are located at the baseball and softball complex.
