If the Arizona Renaissance Festival and Dungeons and Dragons produced a love child that was then raised by a haunted house, it would end up resembling Shadowlands, a Halloween-themed scare-a-thon filled with costumes, role-playing, and a heavy dose of the heebie-jeebies.
Visitors can participate in a series of interactive and creepy walkthroughs that play off the sordid history of a fictional village, which was, according to the story on the events Web site, attacked by witches and defended by shape-shifting witch hunters until the Inquisition condemned the hunters for heresy. Now theyre back for revenge, and can only be stopped by Shadowlands visitors.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 26. Continues through Nov. 1, 2008
