Old Oak Tree

The Evil Haunted Tree and The Owl.

Chainsaw? I don't like chainsaws, I once had a close shave with one and by the way if I get my limbs on you!
~ The Haunted Tree

The Haunted Tree is a primary villain of a Dark Ride Haunted House called "1313 Cemetery Way" which is located at the midway at Adventureland.


The 1313 Cemetery Way was built in 1986. Few years ago, The Tree was the Keeper of The Old Haunted House, he enjoys scaring people who dare enters the old house and he has conversations with the Owl about the Man with chainsaw. When the vines covers The Tree, he became weak.  In 2010, the adventureland company takes the tree down and tears up 1313 Cemetery Way and it was gone for good? The 1313 Cemetery Way was changed into a Ghost House. The Tree's roots were cut off, he became a prop and trapped by the fence. He could no longer speak, move his limbs and not even taunt or scare but would he? The guests was taking pictures of The Lifeless Haunted Tree for fun. In 2013, when the rain starts to pour at Adventureland, the Tree begins to soak up and the roots degenerate and became alive once again. When The Tree saw his House was taunted and teased while being destructed, the villainous Haunted Tree makes a vow to seek revenge on those who tore down his precious house. He shall unleashed the nightmare on the midway and there's nothing to stop his vengeance during October or on Halloween. During Adventureland's Nightmare on the Midway, he unleashed the evil spirits, undead, zombies, evil clowns and further more, "Men with the chainsaws"! The Haunted Tree is Iconic of Adventureland and he'll never be thrown away as long as he is refurbish just like always.  He maybe The Villain of Adventureland but he's one of the Animatronic Mascots.

The Owl beckon, "I wouldn't go in there if I were you, then The Tree replied "Why not, What's wrong with a little fun in the dark at Adventureland?"
