Each combo ticket grants its holder access to the Skeleton Saloon & Hotel, the 3-D Nuclear Accident House, the 1/4 Mile Nightmare Walk through the woods, and the 2,000-square-foot Maze from Hell. In the mid-1980s, Haunted Acres started as a haunted house that was set up by seasonal campers for just one night a season. Since then, it has grown and changed locations to a remote field and densely wooded area at the back of New England Dragway, a prime location for haunted attractions. All four attractions are fearlessly scary, though Haunted Acres says those as young as 8 years old can enjoy the spooky spectacle without needing a diaper change.
Hoping to revive the culture of the neighborhood butcher shop, with its personalized service, attention to detail, and artful products, restaurant-industry veterans Justin Rosberg and Jason Parent took a gamble on their first New Hampshire butcher shop in 2003. Dubbed The Meat House, their store quickly earned a foodie following, spawning additional franchise locations across the country. Today, The Meat House’s Mission Viejo location stocks fine cheeses, prepared side dishes, other gourmet grocery items, and hundreds of wines alongside the usual selection of traditional and exotic meats. Butchers also explain how to prepare each hand-carved cut of meat, sharing recipes, best slicing practices, and cooking techniques for giving pork chops the flavor of justice.
At What a Crock!, chefs turn locally sourced ingredients into experimental and familiar made-from-scratch soups, stews, and chowders. Three signature options headline the menu, including creamy tomato and the chicken-based Doc in a Crock, and chowder. Five daily-rotated specialties join the signature selections on the Slurp side, and on the Sip side, What a Crock! maintains its locally sourced theme with milks, sodas, and waters tapped from nearby springs. For a crunch, the restaurant dishes out freshly prepped salads, such as our house "crock salad" and Caesar salad, in addition to the speciality salads offered throughout the week.
