WARNER ROBINS -- Once the sun sets, the hauntings start happening in October in Houston County.
The Museum of Aviation has joined the scare club with its own Nevermore Hills Haunted Trail, which starts Oct. 11.
With land next door to the museum as well as some unused buildings, Jenny Maas, finance director for the Museum of Aviation Foundation, decided to make use of the property by creating a fundraiser for Halloween.
Maas has been to numerous haunted houses, and the scariest one she said she has been to is Netherworld in Atlanta.
She enlisted the help of some local scare fanatics to get the ball rolling for the trail.
Hal Clay, who is part of Stormtrooper and Ghostbusters re-enactment groups, was hired as a consultant.
Ryan Whipple, a career broadening officer at Robins Air Force Base, will be the makeup artist for the entire run.
He got into the makeup business by showing up as a zombie for a Halloween party.
The tour takes about 15-20 minutes and includes ghouls, monsters, arachnids and all other manner of scary creatures.
It takes about 40 volunteers a night for the 11-day run of the trail, according to Maas.
Because it is a trail, flip-flops and sandals are not recommended.
The Haunted Barn in Perry already is in full swing.
Now in its fifth year, the barn again will have tours of the attic as well as the zombie experience called Got Zombies, where participants can hunt for the undead by using paintball guns.
The barn will host a blood drive Oct. 19, and those who bring canned food any night get $1 off admission. The canned goods will be donated to the Perry Outreach Center, and Loaves and Fishes.
On Lake Joy Road, the Lake Joy Trail of Terror begins Friday with its share of scares.
The trail is the brainchild of Mike and Robyn Kelly, who use part of their land as the trail.
In its third year, this trail will feature new ways to frighten, and the path has changed, Robyn Kelly said.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to breast cancer research and a local youth group.
