Wear yer’ diapers for Field of Screams

20-foot Pumpkin King greets you at the start of the Haunted Hayride.

     Strobe lights, piercing screams, and the scent of sickness pervade on a chilling night at America’s number one haunted attraction- Field of Screams! Four frightening attractions: Haunted Hayride, Den of Darkness, Frightmare Asylum, and Nocturnal Wasteland.

     Haunted Hayride tours through several scenes. Three rooms are enclosed and leave you with no escape- only to face a crazed scientist and deranged hillbillies creeping to your side to keep you on the edge. Slaughtered pigs hung by hooks and sounds of roaring chainsaw blades against your skin- the level of intensity adds to the fear of what’s to come, immersing your soul into constant fear! 

     A 3-story barn where the doctor’s operating room is waiting for you- Den of Darkness offers the thrill of a lifetime! In a crawl space, you’re demanded, “Get on your hands and knees!” by the vicious creatures to get through a narrow passageway littered with spiders and dead bodies; you must crawl over if you want to get out. 

     Brace yourself- 4 floors of frightening terror at the Frightmare Asylum! Encounter a dentist performing eerie experiments on unfortunate victims- you could be next if you don’t make it out alive. Weave your way down steeply-sloped steps and beware of the next corner- for it is your last turn of the journey on the Frightmare Asylum.

     Monsters are hiding and waiting to cross paths with you- Nocturnal Wasteland is home to these beasts! Inhabitants take pleasure in your screams for help out of the wasteland. Roaming around you, in your face, reaching out to touch you- assuring you are not to escape. 

     Grasp your friend’s arm; if you’re alone- fend for yourself at Field of Screams! Come here, and you will experience a sensational fear not to be forgotten.
