SUWANEE — You don’t need to wait for Halloween for a fright.

During the last three weekends of October — beginning today — flocks of the undead will be scaring guests during Aurora Theatre’s annual Terror on the Trail in Sims Lake Park.

The park’s 1.2-mile looping trail is transformed into a haunting backdrop for zombies and tales of terror.

And this year, the theater has added several additional zombies for the festivities.

“After doubling the number of teenage zombies last year we have added even more. More zombies equals more fun for our guests. This legion of undead teens lead guests to storytellers who will recount tales of horror,” said Aurora’s Producing Artistic Director Anthony Rodriguez. “We are proud to say that the teens participating in this year’s event represent students from 28 middle and high schools in Gwinnett.”

Terror on the Trail is a mix between between classic storytelling and a haunted house experience. There are some special effects, but nothing will jump out to startle visitors.

The zombies lead groups around the lake for a tour, which last around 75 minutes.

Guests are encouraged to wear appropriate footwear and to dress for the weather. While the tour is wheelchair accessible, strollers are not permitted. The tour is not recommended for children under 10 and children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
