What time are you open?
Tickets booths open by 6pm. Both the Hayride and Walking Trail will begin at 7pm and continue until all ticket holders have seen the shows. The parking lot will not allow new customers after 10pm. Those that purchase combination tickets for both events after 9pm should attend the hayride first and then the walking trail.
How can I purchase tickets/Online ticketing?
Tickets may be purchased the night of the event starting at 6pm at our own ticket booth. Credit Cards are accepted, please ask for appropriate line.
Online Ticketing is available for your convenience. Online ticket holders will be guaranteed admittance in the event of a sold out performance, however, you will still need to come to the box office window to redeem them. Please be aware that a service fee is charged by the online ticket company. Tickets purchased nightly at the farm will have no additional charges.

Is this event suitable for children?
Our events can be full of family fun but are not designed for small children or those easily upset by the dark. Parents do know their own children best; however, be advised it could be too intense for some. Our creatures are excited to hear you scream, but not terrorize tiny tots. No child under 6 should ride the Hayride. It is not recommended for children under 9. Children that do attend need to be able to distinguish fantasy from reality and not be upset by loud noises, scary faces, or screaming. The trail is not recommended for anyone under 11 years of age.
WARNING! Our event will have flashing strobe lights, laser light shows, loud noisemakers, fog, uneven surfaces and scares meant to startle and disorient you. If you are pregnant, have a heart condition, or any other medical, physical or emotional concerns that could be exacerbated by these, you should not attend either event.

What to wear?
The temperatures can change quickly at the farm. We suggest you wear warm clothes with comfortable shoes. Flip-flops and high heels are not safe foot attire here at the farm or walking in the forest.
There is a strict no smoking policy at the farm due to both a health and safety hazard. There is also a no tolerance for illegal drugs or alcohol use. Those that appear intoxicated will be asked to leave without a refund of tickets. We do hire police that will assist in these matters.
Can the monsters touch me?
No and you will be instructed not to touch them either as well as any of the props and decorations. If you do, you will be immediately removed from the attraction by security without a refund. You may, however, be inadvertently touched or brushed up against due to the close proximity of the actors. However, they will not grab at you or restrain you in any way.
Farm Parking lots are open at 5:30. Parking is FREE. Our professional Parking Staff will assist those with special needs. During the peak nights we ask patrons to kindly car-pool if possible
What if an evening is cancelled?
In the event of cancellation due to weather, tickets will be honored on a night of your choice. No refunds under any circumstances.
How do I avoid waiting in long lines?
If you come either of the last weekends, especially Saturday nights, in October you can expect a great night of non-stop terror, excitement, and fun, as we get closer to Halloween. These popular nights are quite festive, however, the wait times and lines are significantly longer and traffic heavier than earlier in the month. On those peak nights, it may help to arrive early. If you prefer an experience with much smaller crowds and less wait time, choose an earlier weekend at the beginning of the month. If you are only planning to attend the Melon Head Trail, we suggest choosing a Sunday night when the hayride is not running. Either way, we know you will have a great time!
Lost articles or valuables
Please secure all valuables, keys, phones, and anything that may be dropped or lost while on the hayride or walking the trail. If you should lose something on the ride, our staff will do their best to search for it after the event is completed for the evening. You may come the next day to search for lost items.
