  • Haunted Hayride

    Prepare yourself for the most disturbing, the most heart-pounding, and the most intense ride of your life! There is no turning back as the tractor-pulled wagons take you on a horrifying hayride into the depths of our dark and sinister cornfield.

    The Haunted Hayride at Field of Screams is one of the first, and best, in the World. Every year, the new scares and new scenes constantly improve the terror of the wagon ride that takes you deep into the cornfield. The hideous characters and chilling scenes will make your heart pound and your hair stand on end. The sounds of the eerie cornfield will surround you and once you board this tractor-pulled wagon, there's no turning back!

    After you are greeted by a 20 foot Pumpkin King, the ride begins as the custom-built wagons are pulled deep into the cornfield where your nightmares quickly become reality. The darkness cloaks the ghastly inhabitants of the cornfield, and you never know where one of these creatures may be hiding just waiting to launch its attack on the victims aboard the wagon.

    Your first stop is the slaughterhouse where Uncle Willie and the disturbed pig butchers are prepared to cut down anyone in their path. Dirty Dan’s Redneck Clan is another terrifying sight. This hillbilly family enjoys shooting anything or anyone that trespasses on their property, and you are no exception. When these trigger-happy hillbillies mix moonshine, fire, and guns, things go horribly wrong. With the world's first 3-room enclosed hayride scene, ghostly graveyard inhabitants, cackling clowns, and toxic waste creatures, the hayride is non-stop action that leaves fear in everyone's heart. The all-too-familiar sound of chainsaws will fill you with terror while the feeling of the blade against your skin will make your pulse race and your blood flow!

    In just 20 minutes every horror you have ever imagined will come to life and haunt you for the rest of your days. Each year new scares are added and more screams are heard. No one can escape the fear while trapped on the Haunted Hayride as it travels the dark, dreadful path through the cornfield.

    This Haunted Hayride is unlike any other Haunted Attraction in the world and contains more hair-raising, jaw-dropping fright than ever before. Step into the terrors that fill your nightmares and take a ride into the cornfield that brings out the creepiest characters of all. Crowds flock to the Haunted Hayride from places like Baltimore MD, and Philadelphia PA because this is America's No. 1 Haunted Attraction. The smells, sounds, and scenes will give you chills that won't stop until you finish the ride. Step up onto the wagon and hang on tight, because this will be a terror-filled journey.

  • Den of Darkness

    Three stories of sheer terror await as you creep through the dismal passageways and maddening mazes of this 200 year-old original barn. Incredible detail, dynamic set design, and a multitude of grotesque inhabitants guarantee high-impact scares and sensory overload!

    The Den of Darkness is one of America’s original Haunted Houses and it just keeps getting more hauntingly horrifying with each passing year.

    The Den of Darkness is a 3-story barn that was built in the early 1800's and then converted into a farmhouse. The dark and mysterious past of the Den began when the Murter family resided there. Mr. Murter tortured both vagrants and locals who approached his land, and their blood still stains the ground. Years later the residence was renovated into The Garden Hotel and ironically the horrific killings increased. As the demented hotel staff committed torturous murders, many checked in, but few checked out. The final chapter in the life of the Den of Darkness was as the mansion estate of Frances Henry Worth, a well-known eccentric and psychotic millionaire. Worth continued the atrocities that plagued this building since its existence, and left the Den of Darkness very much as it is now seen today.

    The Den of Darkness is home to blood-thirsty creatures and nightmarish monsters. From the stench of dead bodies in the morgue to the brush of spiders in the halls, the terror is non-stop. Journey through the fright-filled hallways and narrow passageways as you experience the horror of the disturbed inhabitants determined to haunt this Den forever. Make your way carefully through the doctor's operating room or you may be his next victim. The Den of Darkness is one of the World's Scariest Attractions and the terror-filled hallways are non-stop horror!

    Proven to be one of the best haunted houses in the world again and again, the Den of Darkness does not disappoint. Experience bone-chilling fear as you travel through the doll room where their delicate faces are mutilated by the deranged doll maker. Feel your pulse race as you try and escape the torture room without being seen, or you may lose a limb - or worse, your life! Feel your way through the dark hallways and hear the grating sound of the chainsaw as it cuts into flesh. The terror that the Den of Darkness leaves you with is something that cannot be forgotten.

    The Den of Darkness is such a heart-pounding experience that it was featured on the Travel Channel as one of the world's scariest haunted houses. Customers flock to Field of Screams from cities all over the East Coast to experience their worst nightmares and witness the terrors that lie inside the doors of the Den of Darkness.

    Home to some of the most criminally deranged and disturbed patients, the Frightmare Asylum is one of the most terrifying and frightening haunted houses in the world. Although the Applegate Asylum was shut down and abandoned in the 1900's after more than one hundred years of operation, the deranged doctors, nightmarish nurses, and disturbed inmates have remained to haunt the only place they've known. They show no mercy to visitors and enjoy the chance to mutilate new bodies.

    The malpractice of the doctors and nurses in the Asylum has caused the inmates to become unstable and prone to seek their revenge on all who enter the condemned building. The Doctors take sick enjoyment in slicing up patients and visitors in order to test their latest experimental treatments. The dark hallways contain the most demented and twisted people, and they provide shocking scares around every corner. Encounter your worst fears as you discover the dark secrets left behind in the Applegate Asylum. Beware of Dr. Stitch the Dentist because his sinister experiments leave even the bravest with their worst nightmares. Brave the autopsy room and cover your nose, because the stench might just kill you if the doctors don't. The jaw-dropping, hair-raising terror that you experience will be seared into your mind forever. Every step could be your last, so tread carefully. The only way to escape the ghastly patients that inhabit the Asylum is to weave your way through 4 floors of fear and to cautiously make your way past the creatures who call this place home.

    The heart-pounding terror of the Frightmare Asylum is a feeling that you will never forget. Although many may enter, few will leave unchanged.

    The Frightmare Asylum is one of the best haunted houses in the world because of the deranged characters and horrific scenes housed inside. Guests travel far and wide to experience the chill of the Frightmare Asylum. From all up and down the East Coast, guests from Baltimore MD, Philadelphia PA, and other East Coast Cities have come back year after year to experience the never-ending horror that accompanies their walk through the eerie hallways of the Frightmare Asylum.
