Salem's spookiest tourist traps

By GREG COOK  |  October 21, 2011


A costumed guide leads a tour through an artificial Christmas-tree forest where mannequin girls dance around a fire and a robotic man gets them to sign his satanic book. Guide: "There was no one meeting in the woods. This was simply a story to keep the young girls amused." See Tituba and the girls, a witch in a wood with a black cat, Gallows Hill, and squeaky animatronics. Highlight: a ghost mannequin of Giles Cory materializes among a grove of artificial trees via special flashing light effect as a recording explains, "His ghost appears in the burying grounds before times of great calamities."
