The Ghoullog returns for its 13th and final haunting season

North Conway, NH – Cranmore’s annual month-long haunt, the Ghoullog, is back for its 13th and final year. The event, held at Cranmore’s Artist Falls Lodge, has been recognized as a top haunt regionally and nationally over the past several years.

The approximate 50-minute haunt will operate weekend nights starting Saturday, September 28 and will run through Saturday, November 2.  Doors for the event open at 6:30 pm. Haunts run 7pm to 9pm on opening night and Fridays, and 7pm to 10 pm on Saturdays and Sunday of Columbus Day Weekend. 

The Ghoullog will also be open on Halloween night, Thursday, October 31 from 7pm to 9pm, with a special for locals. Tickets will be $20 for residents of Carroll, Coos or Oxford County. Guests must show ID for proof of local residency. Full-price Ghoullog tickets will also be available.

“The Ghoullog has had an amazing run of 13 years,” said Ghoullog creator, Lance Davis. “All good Broadway shows come to an end.  We felt this season would be a good time to wrap up 13 successful seasons and look at new concepts that will entice haunters.  We hope the suspense will kill you.” He continued. 

After the Ghoullog wraps up this year, Cranmore will work with the Ghoullog creators on future fall-themed events. Guests can expect new fearful experiences to be announced for 2020 or 2021. 

“The Ghoullog has become a premier haunt in New England thanks to its co-creators, Lance Davis and Jim Chichwak,” said Cranmore President and General Manager, Ben Wilcox. “We are excited to celebrate 13 years of the haunt and work with the Ghoullog team on new projects for the future.”

To celebrate the Ghoullog’s final chapter, there will be a kickoff party at the Adventure Suite’s Haunted Castle on Friday, September 27 from 7pm to 9pm, with a cash bar and light appetizers. All ages are welcome to explore the Haunted Castle Suite and mingle with Ghoullog characters. Space is limited and tickets can be purchased online at

In addition to this fall’s events and haunts, guests can also visit the Haunted Playground, which features a one-of-a-kind experience with nighttime rides on the Mountain Coaster, Giant Swing and Soaring Eagle Zip Line during Ghoullog operating hours. The Haunted Playground is appropriate for all guests, though age, weight and height restrictions apply. 

Food and beverage is available on-site during haunts. The Broken Skull Pub, located in the Artist Falls lodge is a fully-licensed lounge and will offer an array of draft beer, including Angry Orchard Cider, favorite mixed drinks and snacks available each night of the Ghoullog starting at 6:30pm.   

Tickets to the Ghoullog are $33 per person.  An all-inclusive package is available, the Ghoullog Plus, which includes a trip through the Ghoullog and unlimited rides in the Haunted Playground for $45 per person.  Tickets for unlimited rides in the Haunted Playground are $20 for guests under 54 inches and $26 for 54”+. 

Discounted rates are available for groups larger than 15, when reserved 48 hours in advance. For group information, please call 603-356-5544 ext. 323.
