A haunted house is born from a past tragedy, be it a grisly murder, a mysterious disappearance, or a long-forgotten bologna sandwich buried beneath the floorboards. Sign on for a tour of an eerily cursed residence with today's Groupon: for $15, you get admission for two to The Haunt at Rocky Ledge (a $30 value).
The six creepy sites of The Haunt at Rocky Ledge sprawl across shadowy backwoods and dilapidated houses teeming with otherworldly inhabitants. Interloping pairs wander down a guided path through the woods, passing though such locales as the Tunnel of Fear and the Walk to the Unknown, where guests must face the horrific embarrassment of asking a werewolf for directions. The spooky stalks of the Field of Screams bear down on all who attempt to pass through, and the walls of Clyde's House of Horror run with blood and the echoing cries of other visitors.
Cars wait in the free parking lot, spooking themselves with films of monster-truck rallies until their owners return, and a snack bar dispenses sustenance to survivors, though its wares are not included in today's deal. The haunted zone emerges from the mist for business nightly on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and is recommended for victims older than the age of 11.
The Haunt at Rocky Ledge
Traditionalists beware—The Haunt at Rocky Ledge is no mere haunted house. The frights start in the middle of the woods as guests find themselves navigating the Forest of Lost Souls under direction from a ghastly tour ghoul. If they're lucky enough to make it past the terrifying trees, wanderers will soon find themselves lost in the twisting paths of the Field of Screams corn maze, searching desperately for a finish line that merely waits to usher them to another frightful fate in the Haunted Barn. Patrons who manage to survive long enough to make it to the haunt's end and the final Last Rites attraction can rally their spirits and replenish their strength at the snack bar or head home to hide under the covers.
