Spooky is the most neglected of the five basic human emotions: spooky, joy, sorrow, grouchy, and wet. Get horror glands pumping with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a VIP combo ticket to Raisin Hell Ranch Haunted Cornfield (a $40 value), located in Madera. This deal is valid for redemption between October 15 and October 31 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Raisin Hell Ranch welcomes both grim reapers and gleeful roamers to its spread of spooks and scares. With the VIP combo ticket, you’ll have unlimited access to the ranch’s three haunted attractions. In Scarecrow’s Revenge, über-peeved scarecrows look to rejuvenate their soulless strawed selves with human flesh, human blood, and minimal plastic surgery, and Chupacabra Feast unleashes the bloodsucking creatures of cryptozoological lore for a mayhem-filled meet-and-greet with an unsuspecting public. Raisin Hell Ranch’s third scare site, Black-Out Maze, is a starchy labyrinth of masterfully carved twists, turns, and dead ends, with guests tromping through a 2.5-mile maize maze without the aid of flashlights or maps. The Black-Out Maze’s design celebrates the 100th anniversary of Fresno State, a corn maze that sneakily disguised itself as a college via well-placed classrooms and academic essays.
A VIP combo ticket also gets you front-of-the-line privileges to each attraction, allowing you to cut down on idle chitchat with strangers and get straight to idle screaming with strangers instead. Grab a friend, a creepy neighbor, or your second-favorite cartographer and decode the daunting haunting offered by Raisin Hell Ranch.
