As an event lover, I like to visit many locations. Never have I been so amused with what was done with Meadowbrook Haunted Cornfield. It was a fun scene with wagon rides, a small but well prepared concession stand serving different types of caramel apples, popcorn, apple cider and other goodies, and a larger store. There is a pumpkin patch with all sorts of sizes and shapes for the yearly jack-o'-lanterns and even a cozy animal zone! Although I came in the evening to be scared, I thought I should mention that during the day this was a nice place to take the family. There was a story-teller near a bonfire area. The short wait for the cornfield was well worth it. Once inside the maze, I was quickly swept into a volley of scenes that sparked the imagination! There were spiders, a cabin scene with a twisted redneck, novelty movie characters, horrible anti-clowns and many more ghoulish delights. Riddled inside an amazing set of props and ridged motion sensors, I found that there were more than a dozen or so actors that popped out and attempted to give a good scare. I was especially impressed with the amount of detail that these characters had in their scenes! When I got to the end, I found myself wanting to go through again.
I was impressed by the level of security when they pulled a group of rowdy teenagers out for disrupting the show. They threw corn throughout the field and were very unruly in front of my group, so I was very relieved when I saw that they were pulled out only a short way into the maze. Overall, I liked the attempts the actors had tried to use to both scare me and stay in character, and it seemed like there was a lot of effort put into this establishment. All of the employees I had asked for assistance were very helpful. If you are interested and have not seen what this place was like, I suggest you give it a chance. I did, and I was not disappointed.
