This was a blast. Cornfields and Forests and Haunted Barns, oh my! We started off with the Wicked Wagon Hayride, a nice, slow start but lots of fun. We moved on to the Trail of Treachery which was a little scarier than the Hayride and it was really cool to walk through the corn fields. Plus there were lots of little surprises around each corner. And then the thrills never stopped. The Barbaric Barn, winner of the "Frighttour Frighty Winner Maze of the Year" last year, was awesome. But our favorite of all was the Wooded Wasteland. As scary as you would want it to be, and not for wimps, this was so exciting.
To be honest, all of their attractions were as good as any attraction in Disney or Universal. They were top notch with great acting. Here are details:
The Corner of Chaos:
Do you know the legend? Nearly 300 years ago, a despicable and angry man lived on the Corner Farm. Any man, woman, or child thoughtless enough to cut through the farm at night disappeared. The old farm man, suspected of the crimes by the townsfolk, was dragged from his home, lashed to a post at the crossroads, and burned alive. As the fire licked at his flesh, the man’s last words were a curse and a promise to all those who sought revenge! Some say you can now see a lone scarecrow on the Harvest Moon at the crossroads.
Barbaric Barnyard... The last time anyone lived in the Corner’s farmhouse was over forty years ago. And after what happened that horrible night to the Butcher Family, few are foolish enough to step foot on the cursed land or to peer into the abandoned barn. Three loyal brothers, their controlling father, the love of a head-strong girl and a pact with the Straw Man are the perfect recipe for mayhem and murder! Will you survive the wrath of the Butcher Brothers and their Barbaric Barnyard? Or are you the next unsuspecting victim?
Trail of Treachery... The Trail of Treachery corn maze is a real treat during the day. But at night, beware of its tricks! Stay on the right path or you’ll find yourself face-to-face with some of the Corner’s more infamous residents! Werewolves, vampires, creepy children, and monsters too horrible to speak of roam this land, each of them paying their toll to the Straw Man for all eternity. Careful they don’t catch you wandering lost, or you can count on becoming part of the attraction… permanently.
The Wooded Wasteland... In 1928, the locals buried a terrible secret deep in the woods. Now, that secret has clawed its way back up to our world! When a thriving mine on the Corner Farm land had a sudden leak of an unknown gas, many of the miners were killed while others were horribly sick or driven insane! Frightened for their own lives, the town secretly boarded up the mines- with the workers still inside! But some of the old miners survived the initial sickness and now their offspring are in the woods, hideously deformed and with an inhuman hunger! With the miner’s children loose, so too are the deadly fumes and toxins… and they’ve begun to affect the rest of the woods and anyone who enters!
And, as an added bonus and more fun for the entire family, there's even more...
The Chaotic Carnival Before you visit their fatal attractions, join them on the Key for live music, games, food, nightly bonfires, and The Chaotic Carnival! These sideshow freaks recently escaped from their tour of the Belle Jardin Asylum for the Criminally Insane and they’re just dying to show you their latest death-defining stunts. Fire-breathers, evil clowns, jugglers, and more will delight, mesmerize, and terrify!
You can't miss this one!!!
Nightmare at Gravity Hill (nightmareatgravityhill.com)
Get your fright fix at this 45-minute spine-tingling walk of terror that will satisfy even the most daring of you. It’s truly the best haunted trail we have ever been on, and it’s only year number two for them!!! Over the years, we try to find new and exciting Halloween attractions, and it takes a lot to get our blood going. This indoor/outdoor maze was amazingly satisfying. The architecture is spectacular, comparable to the best of them that have been around for dozens of year. We love the buildings, special effects and details put into every foot of the walk.
From the minute you enter, when the huge gates open, you will be amazed at the old western town, engulfed in fog, and you will be hooked. At the end of the western town is an old, spooky church. It’s as good as any theme park’s set. Spooktacular! There are actually people that turn around and leave at this point. But please don’t or you’ll miss the best maze you’ve ever been to. Zombies jump out at you from all sides. You walk through path after path in the maze, each one adorned with very high black cloth walls (which keep you from peeking around corners). Even though there’s not a lot going on at times, just looking up at nothing but a dark sky and stars with the black cloth on both sides of you adds to the overall experience and makes it feel incredibly real. On your walk through the cemetery, there is an enormous, animated statue and it’s the coolest thing, similar to the feeling you get when you see the Statue of Liberty. Every part of the maze has fantastic actors inside fantastic sets. We also loved the Egyptian pyramid, mummy included!
From the western town, to the old, spooky church, to the Pyramid, Statue and 3D building, there are spooks and thrills around every corner, with a little time in between to get your heart prepared again. And lots of great surprises. This will be one attraction you will be sure to visit year after year. Kudos to all!!!
Field of Terror... (fieldofterror.com)
This attraction was a blast. And different from "Corner of Chaos" so we highly recommend going to both places. Why not?!
There is a 6-acre walk through a haunted corn field, the Field of Terror Haunted Cornfield; the Unknown Haunted Barn; the Terrorride Haunted Hayride; and Dementia 3D. All are great.
The Terror Ride Haunted Hayride...
A haunted hayride into the dark unknown. Being with a large group on this hayride was so enjoyable. The ride is very long and there are lots of scarey moments. Some are obvious and others aren't. The sets are nice and there's a cool "vortex tunnel," towards the end, a spinning tunnel that is a nice surprise.
Haunted Corn Walk...
A 6 acre walk through haunted corn field that will surprise you around every turn. This is not really a maze, it's more of a walk, but a fun one. There are a few surprises that I won't mention because they're alot of fun so you'll have to go and see them for yourself. You'll go on a nice, long walk with lots of decent frights along the way. It's one of the longest attractions you'll see of this sort, with a diversity of scares over a long period. The atmosphere is wonderful and feels very remote. You'll feel like you've been isolated in the middle of nowhere. You'll be shoved in confined spaces and "harrassed." And at the end you'll go through a claustrophobic tunnel where you'll need to escape. Loved it. The Unknown Haunted Barn...
They will prey upon your fears one sense at a time. This is their best attraction and a great way to end the night. All of the elements create a superb haunted attraction...light, sound, atmosphere, timing, along with a booming, heavy metal soundtrack that adds to the overall feel. You will have to crawl your way through at one point and there are lots of false exits with choices to make. The actors will obviously torment you, and you'll love every minute of their attention. And the strobe lights create an eerie illusion of being alone in an endless back-to-back tunnel to top it off.
A 3D walk of terror that will reach out and GRAB YOU! It's another "Frighttour Frighty Winner" from last year!
And there is also a lot more fun when you're finished (or they're finished with you) with their attractions. There's a Bonfire and DJ rockin the house nightly and lots of great refreshments to choose from. Another great night out!
