Haunted Forest

A Maze in Corn. September 29th - October 29th, closes at 10pm.

Halloween is an exciting time of year here at the corn maze! The maze is golden in colour and rustles in the wind leading you to believe there is something out there. The Haunted Forest begins to moan and groan as the creatures of the Forest come alive to feast on the fall visitors. Enter at your own risk, as the forest will reach out to get your screams. A resident creature will lure you in with their haunting humour. Once in the Forest, there is no guarantee what will happen. Come prepared to be scared!

The Haunted Forest is an outdoor venue. Therefore, dress really warm and wear old footwear.

Please check the website for daily updates concerning weather conditions and possible closures.

During the day is best for younger children 6-12, as it is certainly scarier in the dark!
