It's a Halloween experience unique to Central Florida: a haunted house...without the house. In fact, the outdoor seasonal attraction “A Petrified Forest” is equal to a pair of traditional haunted houses – two themed trails packed with scary sets and scarier actors wind through a wooded lot in Altamonte Springs.

This week, “A Petrified Forest” Director Sylvia Viles tells 90.7’s Nicole Creston about the project, which started nine years ago in a suburban back yard and has grown into a full-fledged Halloween attraction.

Nicole came to Central Florida to attend Rollins College and started working for Orlando’s ABC News Radio affiliate shortly after graduation. She joined WMFE in 2010. As a field reporter, news anchor and radio show host in the City Beautiful, she has covered everything from local arts to national elections, from extraordinary hurricanes to historic space flights, from the people and procedures of Florida’s justice system to the changing face of the state’s economy.
