Meadowbrook Farm always presents with a very full Halloween experience. It is strong on atmosphere and charm.
There is an extensive area of pumpkins for sale, seasonal lighting around the trees, a large gift shop, a bonfire complete with scary stories being told, a concession stand and, of course, the corn maze.
It seems the corn is even taller this year and the atmosphere that comes with a moonlit walk through the field is beyond compare.
The tour through the field takes about 40 minutes depending on your pace.
Along the way, you will pass by elaborate sets and enter areas staffed with actors intent on bringing you startles.
The producers of this event do a nice job of having audio effects throughout the field so that even if you aren't seeing things, you are probably hearing things.
I always look forward to the corn maze. It has its own niche in the haunted house scene.
Per usual, this year's was an enjoyable visit.
Be careful to protect your face when walking through the corn as the leaves will be sharp against your face if you aren't paying attention.
The group I came with agreed that, if possible, the maze would be even more intense if more staff could be stationed amongst the corn.
The farm is a family friendly event, however, the maze may be intense for younger visitors.
