JOPLIN, Mo. — Drachenmoor opened Friday night. Featuring Sapphira the dragon who guards the gate. It’s a haunted walking trail for kids located at the corner of Crow Road and McClelland Blvd.
“Free entry, as always,” our friends Ray and Marian Goepfert state online.
Kids will love the new feature this year, it’s obvious to see the huge castle in the middle of the grounds. On the backside what you don’t see from the road is a huge dragon. The trail takes you into the mouth of the dragon to enter the castle. It appears the kids love it. One volunteer told us, “the same kids seem to be coming through more than once!”
Parking has been an issue in the past so they have purchased a piece of property where you can park and walk over. Park to the west of the property on McClelland (see map). They have a walking path behind cones for safety. Also a bathroom in the parking lot.
