Always a Scream!

GET PAID TO SCARE! HAUNTED WOODS APPLICATION

Haunted Woods

Your 35-40 minute terror begins in a haunted abandoned barn, home to a deranged circus of freaks and mutants. If you survive this, you’ll meander through a corn field loaded with your worst nightmares. You’ll enter the haunted woods through a turbulent vortex that leads you to more creatures lurking around every corner, waiting for the right moment to terrorize you. 

This is truly not for the faint of heart!  Do you have what it takes to survive the Haunted Woods? We challenge you!

Special NoteDue to an intense fright factor, the Haunted Woods is NOT recommended to children 10 & under or people with heart conditions. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS .

What’s a Fast Pass? On peak nights, the wait to enter the Haunted Woods with a general admission ticket can be an hour or greater. The fast pass is sold in very limited quantities and reduces the wait to 15 minutes or less. Peak nights will be Friday & Saturday nights typically starting 10/9.

Facilities Disclaimer: Please keep in mind Maris Farms is operated around a rustic dairy farm setting and natural environments. You may encounter uneven terrain, rocks, mud, and corn leaves. Please plan accordingly. Please use common sense and obey established rules of each venue when visiting. We welcome any and all input to help us improve the venues.

Q: Will the Haunted Woods close if it rains?
A: We will close in severe weather. The line to enter is covered but most of the Haunted Woods is outside so you will get wet. We do have covered areas outside for cover if raining but hey it makes it more realistic! We will do our best to post an update on the home page of this website in the event of a closure.

Q: I lost my cellphone/jewelry/shoes in your attraction. Can you help me find it?
A: Please make sure any items you bring are securely in your pockets at all times… or better yet, leave them in your car glovebox. We will not be able to check for lost items right away, and because of the size and complexity of the attractions, items might not be found until the lights are turned back on at the end of the night or the next morning, sometimes not until after the season. If you might have dropped an item inside one of our attractions, please phone or e-mail us with the details and we will let you know if the item has been found. More often than not, dropped cell phones and other items are trampled in the dark environment by other customers. 
We are not responsible for any personal items brought inside our attractions.

Q: What happens if I break the rules?
A: All rules are strictly enforced for the safety of our guests. Anyone violating the rules may be asked to leave the property with or without warning, and without refund.
