Haunted Fort Night

Haunted Fort Night

Journey through William's Town to face what lurks in the darkness!

October 2019 • Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday • Tours start at 7pm nightly

Folk tell a tale of an unknown and unrelenting evil that descends upon helpless villages. Travellers who stumble upon these villages always discover the same grisly scene: signs of struggle, the ground awash in blood, and the putrefied remains and scattered bones of the village's inhabitants.
