Saturdays spy adults and kids sauntering into Western Town, a village populated by characters such as Rainnon the Witch, Hip Hop Hannah, and Punkin The Clown. Legs propel themselves through a bounce house while eyes peruse the ground in search of the perfect pumpkin and hands shake the mitts of special guests and every goat currently running for mayor.
After nightfall, outdoor movies illuminate the Town of Terror where ghost seekers wander 13 scary attractions as live bands fill the air with mysterious music. Creep through the haunted barn or take a frightening ride on a hay stack to test your bravery amid ghosts, ghouls, and sinister bales of straw. Fortunetellers send spines tingling by imparting eerie insight into each visitor’s past, present, and future, whereas a crackling bonfire helps restore cozy comfort to chattering teeth and chilly fingers and toes.
Spread across more than 12 acres, the wild-west-themed farm gathers visitors of all ages to engage in a menagerie of year-round and seasonal activities. In a re-created Western town, guests explore a horse-riding arena, livery, general store, and saloon where they can sing and perform in period plays foretelling the futuristic invention of parachute pants. Authentic stagecoach and chuck wagons take a central role in special events, and in keeping with seasonal themes, farm staffers send guests on haunted hayrides in the fall, bobsled and sleigh rides in the winter, and horse-drawn speedboat tours in the summer.
