Published September 26. 2012 08:26AM

An extended family of inbred zombies have invaded Blue Mountain Ski Area.

To see them live and in person, experience "Terror on the Mountain", the region's newest Halloween attraction, at the ski resort near Palmerton.

The event is held Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from Sept. 28 to Oct. 31.

"The zombie apocalypse is under way and it's pretty gruesome," said Heidi Lutz, marketing director at Blue Mountain Ski Area. "We've set up a zombie butcher shop and turned our stunning lodge into a meat locker for human flesh. Our picturesque mountain has become the perfect playground for thrills and chills this Halloween."

The zombies are terrorizing two areas at Blue Mountain, the 3,600 square-foot lodge, and the 1.4-mile haunted hayride.

Ticket prices and times are as follows: Haunted Lodge, $10, Fridays (7-10 p.m.), Saturdays and Sundays (noon-10 p.m.); Haunted Hayride, $15, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (7-10 p.m.); and Combination Ticket, $20, includes both Haunted Hayride and Haunted Lodge.

Brave visitors can save $2 if they purchase their tickets online at For more information, visit the website, or call (610) 826-7700.

While Terror on the Mountain isn't for little kids, Blue Mountain Ski Area has the entire family covered with its "Mountain Harvest Festival."

Featuring a four-acre corn maze and scavenger hunt, pumpkin painting, pumpkin patch hayride and food, the Mountain Harvest Festival is open on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 7 p.m.
