To begin with the haunted experience a woman started to tell us about the 'history' of the farm. The first haunt is the mineshaft. They separated our group into twos and sent us off. I liked the idea of it, although I was pretty sure it was fake, I think it went under ground. I wish that this part was longer.
After we got out there was a tractor with a trailer waiting for us. Unfortunately there was no one there to tell us to get on the tractor so we stood there for a while confused. Once on the trailer a speaker began to pour out scary music and voices. The ride was pretty long. A couple actors got on the trailer. Although the surroundings could have had more actors and props, the woods and the river were pretty and scary at the same time. Then the tractor pulled us into the middle of the woods.
A man was waiting by a bonfire to instruct us through our adventure. (they broke us into two again!) This was the scariest part. Because we were sitting in anticipation for frights we were even more anxious. The woods were pitch black. Save for a trail lit by rope lights, there was no light. I've never gotten as scared as I was in this part, and the actor didn't even do anything that I haven't encountered dozens of times before! I think it was the surroundings that scared me the most.
Once out of the woods we went into a haunted corn maze. It was okay. Yet again there was no one there to control the patrons. We ran into a bunch of other groups of people. Although I'm sure the maze could have been better the actors were too busy trying to scare the people before us that they missed us i think.
Once we got out of the maze we thought that our experience was over, even though we had purchased the combo ticket. I took the initiative to ask someone about this, and we were instructed to enter the corn at a different part that wasn't lit up at all. I wouldn't recommend the maze. It was really hard to go through, and we couldn't find the non lit markers that we were supposed to locate. There also weren't any actors in the maze to scare us either
I really enjoyed the main event! I would recommend to the owners to place at least one person between each haunt so that they don't get confused. I wouldn't recommend the the corn maze unless you feel like walking for a long time.
