What is it like?
The haunted trail is walking trail, over one mile long, through natural terrain, wooded and open areas. Along the way, actors, props and sets are positioned to scare you. These scary people / items are designed to target specific phobias that you may have that can include but may not be limited to: claustrophobia, coulrophobia, chiraptophobia, demonophobia, lygophobia, necrophobia, etc.
Anything is fair game, including all current political and social events and movements. Actors work to terrify you, totally and completely. Example may include but are not limited to: creepy clowns who might ask you into their van, actors who might tell you you are pretty and breathe down your neck, etc.
Remember, it is acting, but it is designed for to make you think it is real. No, the actors are not felons, convicts, pedophiles, etc. They are ACTORS! So, by purchasing your ticket you consent to being scared, and the actors will use every tactic to do that. They will not touch you, but they will make you think it is real.
By purchasing your ticket you are consenting to experience “bad-taste” and every crazy and scary actor, set, event, etc that could come with that. This trail is not for the faint of heart.
Can I attend if I am impaired by drugs or alcohol?
No! In fact, we reserve the right to refuse to sell you a ticket, or take your ticket away and ask you to leave, if you are impaired. Additionally, you are not allowed to bring in outside beverages of any kind. This includes adult drinks hidden in Yeti cups, Starbucks cups, Cookout cups, etc.
Do I have to pay to park?
Parking is free!
Do children get a discount?
Children’s tickets are the same price as adults. We accept CASH OR CHECK ONLY; no credit or debit cards will be accepted. (The rationale for not having a child’s price is because we do not recommend that you bring children!) This trail is for ages 12+ only, therefore there is no child price.
Are there any other parts of the farm I get to see?
You will be able to go to the quarry and enjoy the bonfires while you wait for your ticket to be called.
What should I wear?
Comfortable clothes, but most importantly, sneakers or hiking boots. They are recommended footwear.
Will the actors touch me?
Actors will not touch you on purpose but they might invade your personal space. They might touch your soul, but won’t touch your body, unless it is an accident. Their goal is to scare you; this may include getting so close that they breathe down your neck. Remember, you are here to get scared.
How do I pay?
We accept CASH OR CHECK ONLY; no credit or debit cards will be accepted.
How do I purchase the tickets?
Tickets are available for purchase at the door only. There are no online or pre-sale ticket sales. You must purchase your tickets in person the night you come. We accept CASH OR CHECK ONLY; no credit or debit cards will be accepted.
What do I get by purchasing a ticket?
One ticket includes all of the different scare zones. It is a progressive walking trail through each of the zones, including the 3D zone, the town, the woods, the butcher, bus, and the corn maze! When purchasing your ticket, please remember that we accept CASH OR CHECK ONLY; no credit or debit cards will be accepted.
Can I buy tickets in advance?
No, you cannot. Tickets can only be purchased at the haunted trail each night. Additionally, all members of your party must be present and in line at the same time to purchase tickets.
Is the haunted trail a hayride?

How long is the wait time to enter the haunted trail?
The wait time varies depending on which night you come and what time you come. Saturdays have the longest wait time.
Are there any photos that will be taken while I am on the haunted trail?
Your photo will be taken. By purchasing a ticket to Scarrigan Farms, you agree to have your photo taken and be used for marketing, as well as other purposes. And, if you make a great enough scared face, may be used on our social media platforms or website.
Is the haunted trail wheelchair accessible?
The haunted trail is not wheelchair accessible due to the natural terrain of Scarrigan Farms. The haunted trail is all outdoors and involves squeezing through tight spaces, bending, stooping, climbing, crawling, sliding, etc. The quarry itself, where you enjoy the bonfires, is also an area of natural terrain; however, wheelchairs can navigate this area with minimal assistance.
What if I’m wearing a boot or have crutches?
If you are on crutches or are wearing a boot, you will find it exceedingly difficult to navigate the haunted trail. We do not recommend you attend until you are able to walk without your crutches or boot.
I have a medical condition, is the haunted trail suitable for me?
We do not recommend the haunted trail for customers with other types of medical conditions including, but not limited to: epilepsy, heart conditions, fractures, other bone or joint conditions, balance issues, personality disorders, psychological disorders, pregnancy, concussions, or any other similar types of medical conditions. If you have a specific question, please contact us prior to purchasing your ticket for guidance.

What time does the haunted trail close?
The actual closing time each evening is contingent on turnout and demand. Generally speaking, on Friday evenings we sell tickets until around 10 pm. On Saturday evenings, we sell tickets until around 11 pm. On Sunday evenings, we sell tickets until around 9 pm.
Can I go if I am pregnant?
That’s up to you, but a large pregnant belly can alter your center of gravity and make falling more likely. We do not recommend it.
What if I can’t finish?
There will be no refunds but we will escort you out.
What if I chicken-out before I go in?
Then you don’t have to go in, but we do not give a refund.
What if I drop my phone, keys, etc?
You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of the item, the location that you think you lost it, etc and we will tell our maintenance team the following morning. If they find it, we will email you back. We WILL NOT stop the trail to look for your lost items, so please keep up with your items.
