WHY DOES The Abandoned Hayride HAVE THE #1 ATMOSPHERE OF ANY TWIN CITIES HAUNTED ATTRACTION?

One of the greatest aspects of The Abandoned Hayride is that we have a permanent location. The Abandoned Hayride is secluded just outside the lights of the city in a remote corn field surrounded by an incredible 200 year old FOREST. These trees are not your ordinary trees! They actually look like they are reaching out to grab you. One look at them will send shivers down your spine. This Forest is thick and dense with places guests could easily get lost. There are no sounds from a major highway, and no lights from the city. If it is one compliment we get, it is “This atmosphere is amazing”.

IS The Abandoned Hayride REALLY SCARY?

The Abandoned Hayride is family friendly yet still EXTREMELY Scary. The Abandoned Hayride conducts a hard target search all over the Twin Cities for actors that are Halloween nuts. We bring in actors of all types with varying skills. Our actors don’t consider this a job. Most would come without being paid, even though they are. They come every night because they love scaring the heck out of our guests.

It should also be noted that while The Abandoned Hayride is only RECOMMENDED for ages 10 and older, we are still a terrific family event. We are family friendly, we try our best not to sell tickets to anyone who may be intoxicated, we have police on site, and the park is clean.

WILL THIS REALLY BE WORTH THE VISIT?

At The Abandoned Hayride, the owner, the actors, the technicians, the ticket booth, and even the police, want you to have an incredible experience. If you leave for any reason unhappy, we are not happy. We have a passion for what we do. Our staff is itching over the winter to get back to work building, coming up with new ideas, and making sure you have a blast. We go to conventions, work shops, and specialty stores to come up with new and exciting ways to scare and entertain you. We don’t want you to visit us just once, we want you, your family and friends, to make The Abandoned Hayride a tradition for years to come.
