The Gunslingers Grave: A Blood Moon Rises! Werewolves in the Old West!

For the past 2 years at Knott's Scary Farm there's been a Western maze called Gunslingers Grave that mildly dabbled in the Weird West. You followed in the footsteps of a Gunslinger as he took revenge against an Outlaw Gang that killed his wife and (I think) burned down his home. Basically, they were bad people and took everything from him so he returned the favor.

As you followed his trail, he left a bloody swath of corpses across the town; encountering body after bloody, tortured body along the way. You came across corpses that had been savagely whipped, or were breathing their last, gasping as they hung from the rafters. There was a bartender with half his head shot off. All of it definitely WEST, but not quite WEIRD. Have a look:

Well this year, all that is about to change!

From the Official synopsis:

"A Blood Moon Rises" continues the story of The Gunslinger. The Red hand gang has disturbed a burial ground that contained a SkinWalker relic, that has transformed them into Werewolves under the Blood Moon Curse. Return to the Old West and walk in the bloody footsteps of a betrayed and left for dead gunslinger on his path to retribution. This journey back in time takes guests on a trail of terror through abandoned gold mines, a treacherous corral, a seedy saloon and a final showdown at town hall.

NEW FOR 2015
Bloodthirsty werewolves have overrun the crime stricken town
