What is the Walk of Terror?
Now in its 17th year, the Walk of Terror is a professionally produced, community-powered theatrical extravaganza. This year, the walk will be paired with an immersive binaural spatial sound experience.
What is spatial sound?
Spatial sound is an enhanced and immersive audio experience where sounds can flow around you in three-dimensional space. This may give you a sense that a sound or audio is coming from a space in front, beside, or even above or below you.
How will I listen to the soundwalk?
You will be given a sanitized MP3 player and over ear headphones with an explanation of how and when to use it.
Can I remove the headphones while on the walk?
Yes – but please do not pause, restart, or skip the audio in any way. If you would like the full and immersive experience that this was created for, we recommend that you leave them in. The audio will give you directions on paths to go on and turns to make.
What if it Rains?
We are a hardy bunch and will go ahead with the Walk of Terror in almost all conditions, excepting a severe thunderstorm. Weather conditions are changeable, so we don’t make a call to cancel until the evening of the event. We recommend bringing an umbrella in case of light rain.
Is the WOT accessible?
The path is not wheelchair accessible.
Are Pets Allowed?
With the exception of service animals, no pets are allowed.
Is The WOT kid-friendly?
The themes and images in this year’s walk are more mature than in previous years. The narrative is built to arouse extreme anxiety, and some of the imagery is graphic in nature. We recommend ages 13+.
Sound can provide an intense and surreal experience, so if at any time your family becomes frightened, we simply recommend you to take one or both headphones out and to keep walking.
If you have concerns or questions, please call our Box Office!

All Caravan Farm Theatre performances are held outdoors. In the event of rain the show will be relocated to our dry and covered Rain Venue, ensuring that you see the full show in comfort.
