Hasty Acres' gentle equine handlers teach riders ages 7 years and older to comfortably take the reins on the property's emerald acres. Each of the school's benevolent steeds harbors special training to instill them with patience for both beginning and experienced riders. One-hour private lessons instruct hooves in english riding styles with focused, one-on-one attention to proper horse handling, horse care, and horse art history. Duos gallop into a group session with five or six other riders of similar age and experience, affording ample attention for each saddle-filler and just enough players for a human-horse tennis-triples game.

Every October for the past nine years, Field of Terror has opened its gates for thrill seekers bold enough to brave the terrors lurking inside its rural haunts. This year, the farm will host four separate attractions, starting with the Killer Kornfield, a maniacal maze ruled by evil plant-men—failed scientific specimens brought to life by the infamous Farmer Frank. From there, they'll board the hayride into Zombie Town, a community overrun by those who found themselves the innocent victims of Frank's need for human DNA. Should they make it out with their brains intact, passengers will alight to face ghastly horrors in the Unknown Barn, which is rumored to be the very site where the farmer conducted his grisly experiments and hosted his petrifying Friday-night square dances. Visitors will have to navigate the dark, twisting hallways in order to avoid becoming yet another of Frank's victims, and if they're lucky enough to escape, they'll don special protective glasses to make it through Dementia 3D, where chemical exposure has turned some of the farmer's prey into unspeakable horrors.

Every night, the terror of the fields is countered by a host of spirit-lifting activities, including bonfires, DJs, dancing, and nightly hayrides to the pumpkin patch. Those who lose their nerve can detour toward less terrifying attractions such as a straw-bale maze or the family-friendly flashlight maze, which is open each night until 10 p.m.
