About this area

Gloomy Wood was born in 1992, on the path that leads to Forbidden Valley. The one and only attraction in this wooded area was the Haunted House. The area was kept free from any other attractions to keep the way open for further expansion in the following years, but only one attraction, Haunted Hollow, has been added since.

For the 2003 season, the Haunted House became Duel, and was made interactive, with guns added to the cars in an effort to prolong the life of the attraction. Duel is a good attraction, and in most cases the queue isn't too long.
