This haunt is great! Friends of mine recommended this haunt last year, am I sorry I did not get here until this year. Just going to the haunt is unnerving especially when you cross the old wooden bridge at the entrance to the farm. They have a covered waiting area with all kinds of things to eat for sale. The wait was not long, they take large groups up the hill to the old mine shaft. It really feels like you are going down into a mine shaft. The laser vortex thing at the bottom of the shaft is great. There is a swamp like area that make you feel like you are sinking in. The actors scare you the old fashioned way, none of this breathing in your face which is just annoying. The mine shaft would almost be enough, but it is only the first of four parts to this haunt. After a short wait around a bonfire we were loaded on to a wagon with a soundtrack and special effects. We went way back into the dark woods (don’t ask me how the driver knew where he was going in the blackness). I loved all the pyrotechnics; you don’t see that in a haunted house. Even the expected chainsaw attack on the wagon was memorable. Sit on the left side to get the best effect. After a couple of miles on the wagon we were dropped off in the middle of a pine forest. Here the grave yard scene is spectacular. And don’t skip the abandoned cabin in the woods. The final part of this adventure is a trail through the corn field. As you would expect from this haunt it does not disappoint. By the time we were done it had taken more than an hour to complete this haunt. This is a great haunt for a group of friends because with the bonfires between the different elements it allows everyone to recount their favorite parts before taking on the next challenge. . They also have a corn maze that is open at night. I was sorry we arrived too late in the night to do the maze.


I don’t think you can find anything like this event anywhere else in the country. This should be a must see for all haunt enthusiasts. Check this one out with your friends you will not regret it.
