Haunted Graveyard is Connecticut's Largest Halloween Attraction
Lake Compounce in Bristol is Where the Spooks Are!

By Kim Knox Beckius, About.com Haunted Graveyard Lake Compounce

Graveyard Productions' 19th annual Haunted Graveyard is back for its tenth year at Lake Compounce amusement park in Bristol, Connecticut. The Halloween attraction stakes the claim of being southern New England's largest and scariest Halloween event, and there's plenty of horror in store for 2009.

Graveyard Productions president Ernie Romegialli founded the Haunted Graveyard in his Middletown, Connecticut, backyard 19 years ago. In 1999, the event drew 43,000 fright-seekers to its location at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield, Connecticut. The Haunted Graveyard moved to Lake Compounce in 2000 to accommodate larger crowds. Begun as a means to distract his diabetic daughter from thoughts of candy, the annual event has raised more than $600,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation since 1991. Once again, a portion of proceeds will be donated to this non-profit organization.

The ghouls and goblins that inhabit Lake Compounce, New England's oldest family amusement park, intend to scare a lot of visitors throughout the month of October. How terrifying is it? The Haunted Graveyard Web site warns that it is "the most terrifying haunted Halloween attraction ever created by man." Now that sounds scary! The Haunted Graveyard is intended for adults and brave older children; kiddie rides at the amusement park do not operate during the Haunted Graveyard's fall run.

The Haunted Graveyard is a 45-minute walk-through attraction. You'll visit special effects-filled haunted houses and a graveyard as you follow the labyrinth of terrifying trails and walk through the Vortex, a tunnel of spinning lights and eerie mist. Unexpected scares await inside the Reaper's Realm. Watch out for the Killer Pumpkins, too.

And yet one more review of this Ghoulish Event

October is the one month of the year we actually want to be scared. People jumping out of dark corners dressed like Freddy Krueger in February doesn’t really have the same effect.

And now that you're older, it's a bit harder to get those blood curdling screams out when walking through a haunted house filled with paid actors and Halloween decorations. One walk that is guaranteed to frighten you to your bones is The Haunted Graveyard at Lake Compounce.

With this haunted graveyard, you get what you pay for—a 45-minute walk through a dark and scary place, complete with zombies, witches, villains and, of course, the Grim Reaper.

The trail leads you through a swamp, a small haunted corn maze, a graveyard and torture chambers and features six haunted houses all linked by a labyrinth of terrifying trails. There are also 18 adult rides operating and the theme park is totally decked out for Halloween.

No screams will be as earth shattering as those heard when Jason chases you with the revved up chainsaw. Even if you are one with a thick skin, you at least have to appreciate the mere design of this graveyard. How many haunted places have the huge rock from Indiana Jones rolling toward you or a bridge with a spinning vortex of light?

If screaming through a graveyard isn’t enough for you, make a night of it and enjoy the rides at Lake Compounce. A big plus—this is not a dry theme park. So you can enjoy a beer, or two, while waiting in the long line to enter the Haunted Graveyard.

Rated PG for Pretty Ghoulish. The show is intended for adults and very brave children.

Portion of proceeds benefits the American Diabetes Association.
