Fun Factor: Very High Fear Factor: High


The Haunted Barn is a haunt that I feel is a must see. This was my first time attending this haunt and I was left very impressed. The use of their space is simply amazing to me. They have you going in and out of building, through the woods, past graveyards, you just never know what to expect around the next turn. It truly makes you feel like you are inside of an eerie haunted farm.

The house portions of this haunt have very detailed and creative scenes. They had scenes set up that I haven't seen really anywhere else. There were monsters lurking in all the right places.

The wooded portion was one of my favorites. Although it did start off kind of slow it definitely picked up speed as you wondered further into it. As I walked further into it not only did I have the actors scaring me but the atmosphere did as well. There is just something about wondering in the woods not knowing where you will end up that has always creeped me out.

It isn't over yet when you walk out of the woods, you are then led back into the house for more nightmares that came to life.

Signage / Visibility / Location

The location of this haunt was perfect. It was set a very rural area giving the added feeling to the haunt. It was very easy to find, there is a flashing arrow right at the driveway with signs directing you where to park.

Wait Area / Line Entertainment

The wait area is set up with a concession stand and other various tents with food, drinks, and other misc. things. There are a few actors outside working the line for entertainment as well.

Actors' Performance

The actors were amazing. They were always in character and you never knew when to expect one to be hiding. My favorite would have to be who they called "Edna" watch out for her! Although, in the wooded parts they could have used a few more actors.

Sets Scenes / Props / FX

The Haunted Barn has very creative and detailed scenes. They added a lot of variety to it and you never know what to expect around the next corner.


This was actually one of the longest haunts I've ever walked through. It took me about 45 minutes to get through the entire haunt.

Crowd Control

Being that it was so early in the haunt season there wasn't many other people there. But the people that were I never ran into while inside of the haunt.

Most Memorable Moment

I went to this haunt with my boyfriend and there was one part of this haunt that really caught him offguard and scared him. It was hilarious to see a grown man scream like a little girl. Very well done!


Overall, I really enjoyed this haunt. It was a lot of fun and left you scared at the same time. I would recommend this is anyone over the age of 13.
