Trick or Treat Trail

What’s Halloween without candy? Included with the Junior Card (ages 3-11) is an opportunity to stroll down the Trick or Treat Trail in Camp Snoopy. The trail includes 10 candy stops, with attendants behind plexiglass stations distributing treats. Along the path, you’ll see silly scarecrow actors who will interact with participants and numerous seasonal scenes, perfect for photo ops.
