  • This is one of the most organized and best ran haunted houses I’ve ever gone to. The wait times are really short compared to others. We were taken on the hayride 5 minutes earlier than our ticket time and we basically waited about 15-20 minutes for that. The other houses follow suit in such an organized way where you’re waiting maybe 5-10 minutes and going through them almost instantly. The props and decorations are absolutely insane. Very detailed and gory props. The actors are amazing and the jump scares, when present we’re so exhilarating. My only complaint is that there weren’t a lot of actors from houses 3-7. This makes the houses in the middle not so scary. I personally love haunted houses where the actors grab you and jump out at you, so not having that thrill was kind of disappointing. My other friends are chickens so they were scared through it, but me not so much. That’s really my only problem, but the farm itself is so spacious and EXTREMELY organized, has great food options, and a very very cute gift shop. Would definitely recommend it!
  • This was the best haunted house experience I have ever had. It is truly well done and so much fun! My husband and I will be returning every year as we had a wonderful time. The props and actors are so great and well done. The entire operation is well organized and run, from parking, security, and the crowd control to enter the houses so that each person has a great experience. This was great fun!
