Lost Colony Reopening Outer Banks Haunted Trail In April

Posted By on March 18, 2014

The Lost Colony will re-open its new haunted attraction at the Waterside Theatre on Roanoke Island as a two-night fundraiser in April.

You can read the official press release below!

The Lost Colony is extremely excited about presenting a walking tour of the grounds of the first English Colony in America that will be both fun and educational.

Step back in time as you are guided in and around the historic Waterside Theatre where you will learn the mysteries of the island, the history of the colony, and meet the ghosts of those who lived here. 

Learn first-hand why Sir Walter Raleigh sent his colonists here, what they hoped to accomplish, and the history changing outcomes of their journey. 

The history of our modern America began here…experience it in an entirely new way.  

The Lost Colony, America’s longest running outdoor drama, is thrilled to present this new interactive theatrical experience!

“This tour is a natural extension of our ongoing efforts to create usage of the facility in our off season months,” said Lost Colony CEO Bill Coleman. “There are hundreds of school kids on the Outer Banks in April every year and a lack of evening events to offer them. We’ve created this event specifically for bus tours and are thrilled to open it up for two nights to the general public to experience.”

The trail will be presented on two consecutive nights on Tuesday, April 22, and Wednesday, April 23, beginning at 8:30pm. 

Guests should plan on the tour lasting for one hour. 

Tickets are $15 each, and they will go on sale to Roanoke Island Historical Association Members on Wednesday, March 26, and to the general public starting on Friday, March 28. 

You can purchase your tickets in advance online here.
