Hauntings are frequently attributed to a community's overactive imagination, much like the existence of Wyoming. You be the judge with this Groupon.
$20 for Haunted Corn Maze Admission and Souvenir Pictures for Two ($40 Value)
By day, Dave's Pumpkin Patch beguiles families with a 1-acre corn maze that winds with twisting pathways and 85 decision points. But on Friday and Saturday night, as dusk settles, the maze transforms into the Field of Screams, home to a pair of cursed scarecrows and all manner of bone-chilling surprises that takes about 15 to 20 minutes to walk through. Pairs also receive a picture from the evening, which they can download from Dave's website after their adventure, and a souvenir magnetic picture frame. The Field of Screams opens on October 5 and runs until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights and October 28–31.
Dave's Pumpkin Patch
In eighth grade, David Vierra took a field trip to Apple Hill that changed his life. He returned determined to grow pumpkins, and at age 13 he began his first patch. That passion hasn’t waned in the last two decades—the fifth-generation farmer still cultivates a 10-acre patch, where gourds of many varieties and sizes await plucking. David also tends to his grandfather’s garden and 800 acres of specialty vegetables such as heirloom tomatoes, black seedless watermelons, and six varieties of hard squash.
Though he maintains his farm through hard work, Dave's Pumpkin Patch opens its doors to the public every autumn and, under the name Dave's Xmas Trees, every winter in the spirit of play. The annual Cornival features 12 family-friendly attractions such as pony rides, pig races, and a pumpkin cannon that launches gourds 500 yards into the air.
