Powder Ridge to add Halloween attraction

A New England Halloween tradition has found a new home on the slopes of Powder Ridge Mountain Park and Resort, as Graveyard Productions brings its trademark thrills and chills to another Connecticut institution.

Offering seasonal Halloween attractions at locations across Connecticut since 1991, Graveyard Productions has grown to become New England’s largest haunted attraction. Now, it’s set to fully integrate its maze-like path into Powder Ridge’s mountain topography, requiring a trip up the ski lift to begin the journey.

Ernie Romegialli, the founder of Graveyard Productions, said this is “a homecoming in a very real sense.”

“It began over 30 years ago in my front yard just five minutes away,” said Romegialli. “We can’t wait to tackle the incredible creative opportunities that this unique venue gives us – this will truly be a haunting like no other.”

Powder Ridge has roots dating to the 1950s, and its revisioning in 2014 as an affiliate of Portland’s Brownstone Exploration & Discovery Park has made it a year-round destination.

Adding an exciting autumnal element will further enhance the resort’s offerings.

“Halloween has always been my favorite holiday,” Powder Ridge CEO Sean Hayes said. “Therefore, we always knew it would be one of our prominent mountain experiences. We’ve been working with Graveyard Productions for almost two years to ensure a one-of-a-kind haunted experience.”

The spooky season at Powder Ridge is scheduled to begin Sept. 30. The Graveyard Productions attraction will run weekends through the end of October. Tickets will be available starting Sept. 1.
