One never knows what they will come across in a cornfield in Washington County, as it turns out.
On your visit to the Haunted Cornfield, you will traverse a glowing spider web and eventually meet its spitting creator.
There is a pirate ship with its captain and a surprise guest.
Throughout the field, you will encounter glowing red and white eyes staring at you from the dark amidst the sounds of the night.
There are witches brewing concoctions in cauldrons and aliens that have found earth to be a fertile area for colonization.
You will meet the Wolfman and will contemplate a solitary walk through a graveyard.
On your trip, you will pass through a house of confusion with tapestry the same pattern as the walls.
Prior to entering the maze, there are plenty of options for how to spend your time.
The Cornfield is a pumpkin farm and has an impressive array of pumpkins, squash and gourds to buy.
There is also a gift shop on site selling Halloween themed gifts and a snack area selling cider and caramel apples among other fall treats.
The staff maintain a raised fire pit and snacks are sold in that area.
I am told they tell scary stories around the fire. When I visited, people sat and enjoyed the warmth in silence awaiting their call into the field.
Prior to being called, there is plenty of browsing to do through the rows of pumpkins, in the gift shop and around the grounds.
As was mentioned, there is a very pleasant bonfire to sit by to pass the time while you are waiting for your group to be called.
There is a digital message board near the fire that lets you know what groups are currently able to wait in line.
Plenty of snacks, etc. are available.
This is really one of the more rich Halloween environments to pass time in.
Overall, all of the live performers in the field had invested involvements with us and seemed to enjoy their roles. Costuming and make up were above average.
There is plenty to pay attention to in your walk through the corn. Quiet moments are few and beware when it becomes too quiet.
Warning: there is a very heavy reliance on strobe lights in the field if you are sensitive to that.
