Can I bring my kids?

Sure, you will have to be the judge of whether your child will be too scared or not. Some 8 year olds have a great time while some 38 year olds cry for their mommy! Our policy is that we don’t recommend our Field of Screams attractions for children under 10 years old. Instead, we offer Corn Cob Acres, a non-scary daytime alternative which boasts over 40 kid-friendly games and activities. Visit for more information on this fun event.

Should I come if I'm pregnant?

You may come, but we do not recommend that you participate in any of the four Haunted Attractions simply as a safety precaution.

Should I come if flashing lights bother me?

We do not recommend attending Field of Screams as there are strobes in all four of our haunted attractions. Please consult with a doctor before you arrive

What should I wear?

The fall season can result in cool nights so even if it is warm during the day, it may get chilly at night. Dress in layers. Also, you are coming to a farm so please don't wear your best clothes and shoes. The Field of Screams property does consist of mostly stone and paver pathways.

Can we dress in costume?

Feel free to come wearing a costume if you would like, however most people do not. Masks are NOT permitted (except for the medical kind).

Do you accept Groups?

YES! We have special groups rates on our Scream Pass and even have priority parking for buses. Please email for more information regarding your group attending Field of Screams.

Where can I get a brochure?

All Turkey Hill Minit Markets and Rutter's display our brochures. You can find the FOS brochure in numerous pizza shops, bowling alleys, and many other stores as well.

What is the best time to arrive?

Ticket sales begin at 6pm on most nights and as early as 4pm on select evenings. See our Dates and Times Calendar for specific opening times on the night you want to attend. Arrive as close as possible to the ticket booth opening times to beat the crowds. Another way to avoid large crowds is to attend FOS in September, November, or on a Sunday evening.

Am I allowed to bring my dog or other pet?

Service dogs are permitted, but the environment and general nature of the attractions at Field of Screams may not be an appropriate place for a service animal. Please be advised that the dog will be exposed to large crowds, loud noises, sensors and intense situations. Please use discretion. There are no other pets or emotional support animals permitted on the property.

What if I need special assistance?

Please contact us here or email us at and we can work to accommodate special needs.
