The Ghost Farm will ONLY be operating the haunted trail this year. Dear Guests, please bring a facemask (not the Halloween kind:) to wear during the haunted trail experience. The Cursed Barn, Gravely Greenhouse, and Pavilion attractions will not be operating due to Covid-19. Thank you!
We have had mechanical wheelchairs come through the haunt. The Trail is uneven, with loose sand and roots that the wheelchair will need to navigate. Please call ahead so we can be prepared to assist in the attraction if needed.
Appropriate for Children/Age Limit:
Children MUST be able to walk through the haunt on their own. They CANNOT be carried at any point during the haunt. If Ghost Farm staff see children being carried, the group will be stopped in the haunt and the child and person responsible will be escorted from the attraction at that point with no refund issued.
This is a scary experience designed to get our guests heart beating, fast! The environment is loud at times, intense, with periods of darkness, and images of the macabre. We leave it at parent's discretion for appropriateness of the haunted attraction for their children.
One question that might help answer if appropriate: Does your child watch scary movies before bed and are able to go bed without crawling into yours? Then they can probably handle this haunted attraction. We do not offer refunds if your child is unable to finish the haunt. We have had adults NOT finish this attraction-we don't refund them either(we figure we did our job which is to SCARE you:) ....you have been warned.
$15 for children/adults victims.
