The Allan Hancock College men’s basketball program is once again preparing to scare and delight the community with its annual “Frightmare Forest” haunted maze.

The three-acre haunted maze is located at Hancock’s baseball and softball complex and is adjacent to the college’s vineyard at 800 S. College Drive in Santa Maria.

Maze runners brave enough to enter the eerie labyrinth will navigate their way through an entanglement of tricks and spooky surprises. The event also serves as a fundraiser for Hancock’s men’s basketball program.

“Frightmare Forest has become a community tradition where kids of all ages, their friends and their families can come to experience a good old-fashioned scare,” said Hancock men’s basketball Head Coach Tyson Aye.

Frightmare Forest will run from 7 -10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings on Oct.18-19, Oct. 25-26 and Oct. 31 on Halloween night. Attendees are invited and encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes.

Tickets for the maze are $10 per person. Group rates are also available for groups of 10 or more.

Free parking and the entrance to the maze are located at the baseball and softball complex.
