Field of Screams

Field Of Screams, located in Mountville, Pa., is known as America’s number one haunted attraction.

Every fall, it offers three different events that you can take part in: the Haunted Hayride, the Den of Darkness and the Frightmare Asylum.

The Haunted Hayride drives its passengers in tractor-pulled wagons through the dark and creepy corn fields, passing and stopping at various scary scenes. These include frightening creatures, terrifying people, fires, chainsaws and many other chilling sights.
The Den of Darkness is a three-story house that you and your friends walk through. The passageways and rooms are challenging to walk through.

You must kneel and crawl through parts of the Den, feeling the walls in the darkness and walking over squishy and bumpy flooring made to feel and look like dead bodies. By the end, all you can do is get yourself out of the Den and to safety.

Walking through a four-story house known as The Frightmare Asylum, there are many insane patients and crazy situations that you have to overcome to find your way out.

There are rooms filled with patients screaming for your help and rooms where everything is flashing and bright.

You have to decide if you want to stay and help these patients or help yourself by making your way to the exit.

There are also multiple stands where you can purchase a variety of fair-type foods, as well as Field of Screams clothing.

Other stands feature games, such as the Toxic Head Toss Game.

Tickets are on sale from 6 to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 6 to 9 p.m. on Sundays. The event is open each night until the last person gets through the attractions.
It costs $15 to enter the Haunted Hayride, $12 for the Den and $15 for the Asylum. A “scream pass” for $25 will allow you to take part in all three.

As stated on a sign outside of the ticket booth, “Pay to get in, pray to get out.”
