Behind the Screams: The Haunted Barn

HW Updates

Andy and I attended The Haunted Barn in Stoughton for the opening weekend of their 10th and final season. They've worked hard to make sure their final season is a memorable one.   General admission is just $18.00 and is well worth it! They've greatly expanded the outdoor portion of the haunt, so don't expect a short walk through! In addition, they've added some great CGI effects along with some fun twists and turns.   Make sure you attend before they close for good!   Click here for more information.
