Travel back in time to a quaint logging village terrorized by a terrible monster. With residents disappearing one after another, the village elders know it can only be one thing: the ever-feared Windigo. Desperate for help, they hire a witch who says she can destroy the dreaded creature, for a price. But when the time comes to pay the witch, the town falls short. And from there, the little village's luck goes from bad to worse as the witch unleashes a horde of supernatural beings on the unsuspecting town.

Action Entertainment, the company that brought the lakes area the Haunted Stage Coach Ride, Troll, the Wild West Stunt Show and more, is bringing its best talent, special effects and stunts to the Crosslake Historic Village for five days of terror benefiting the village's continued tradition, according to a news release.

The Haunted Village will be open Oct. 16, 17, 23, 24 and 31, when Action Entertainment will present an interactive walk through the village, haunted with exciting scenes and thrilling action at every stop. Zombies, werewolves, trolls and more will make appearances in the village as thrill-seeking visitors tour the town, never knowing what will come next.

Come along to see talented actors, mind-bending stunts and pants-wetting action that's fun for the whole family. Enjoy a bonfire, hot apple cider and more as you hear the tale of what happens when a witch isn't paid her due.
