Due to the large number of ghosts they can hold, haunted houses are consistently scarier than cursed sleeping bags, possessed lean-tos, and ectoplasmic studio apartments.

Blake Farms’ three main Halloween attractions spread over 150 acres and star more than 70 live actors. Board a trailer-touting wagon for spooky hayrides over farm grounds, then rumble past custom-designed displays filled with scream-inducing actors and special effects such as laser beams and strobe lights. Afterward, staff members ease shivers out of rider stomachs with complimentary cider and donuts from the Witches’ Cauldron. With entry into the three-level haunted barn, visitors tiptoe through rooms hiding actors dressed as skeletons, evil clowns, and unhinged tax accountants.
Guests may also navigate across 10 acres of Spookyland, endeavoring into the neon horrors of the funhouse Terror Tunnel, echo-locating their way through the dark cornfield maze, and summiting the Strawbale Mountain. Live DJ entertainment fills the inside of the big-top tent, while food vendors craft grilled fare. Visitors may also spark friendly braying debates with animals at a petting farm, race along an outdoor tricycle track, and view animated films on an outdoor movie screen. While guests of all ages are welcome, the haunted hayride and haunted barn are not recommended for children eight years old and younger.
Though Blake Farms Halloween sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Gerald and Elisabeth Blake established Blake Farms in 1946 with the help of their 13 children. In the 60-plus years and several generations since, Blake's has spread their operation to three locations across the metro Detroit area. More than 500 acres of orchard and farmland compose the family business, and during certain seasons, that land allows average citizens a chance to give their robotic fruit harvesters a rest and come pick their own apples, strawberries, peaches, and pumpkins. Blake's becomes especially busy with the arrival of autumn, when it hosts an annual fall festival, and Christmastime, when its U-Cut tree program lets families team up to chop down their own tannenbaum.
