Come here for a one-stop spooky spot for everyone. Thomas Family Farm’s Nightmare on 9 experience admits you to multiple attractions. First is the “Vogel Institute,” an indoor haunted house operating on the farm since 2012. Then there’s “The Haunted Trail,” a quarter-mile-long walk through the imagined ghost town of “Blackreach.” And the “Zombie Paintball” ride lets you shoot ghouls back into their graves. Want something without monsters? Try the “Night Corn Maze.” 

Most activities are for ages 12 and over, with kids under eight not allowed. But onsite, there’s free access to a nighttime pumpkin patchfood court, and general store. You can even rent a fire pit. For those old enough to drink, there’s a beer garden. (Helpful if you need some bravery.) Parking is available, and a fast pass can be purchased to reduce wait times. Receive a discount plus free admission to the corn maze if you combine two or three activities.
