For your reference:

We arrived at Field of Screams on Saturday, September 11th, around 7pm. The line was longer than normal for opening night because tickets cannot be purchased at the ticket booth this season. Everyone is to enter the park through the “e-ticket” line. All tickets must be purchased online for a specific date and time. This is also where you will be filling out your waiver this season. Although crowds will be at a smaller capacity due to COVID19, we highly recommend opting for the VIP pass so you can skip the lines. The free midway area is a great place to play some carnival games or grab a bite to eat, just watch out for the many characters roaming around. Whether it be Bonjo and Krunk the clowns, Teddy or The ballerina with a doll face; someone is always lurking in the midway! Before heading to the attractions we decided to stop at one of the many food options for a quick pre-haunt snack. Our favorites are always the fried pickles, pumpkin whoopie pies and the orangeade!

Covid-19 Precautions:

This season bathrooms are only located at the front of the park adjacent to the ticket booth. Hand sanitizer is located throughout the midway and in all porta-potties. There is also a bathroom in the line for nocturnal wasteland. Social distancing is being enforced in the lines for all attractions. For the hayride you are on it with other groups, but distanced. After every group exits the hayride, a employee with a large sanitizing backpack sprays the entire wagon down before the next wagon of customers gets loaded. For Nocturnal Wasteland, Frightmare Asylum and Den of Darkness, you enter the attraction with only the group you arrived with. The mask policy is also being properly enforced.

Haunted Hayride:

Actors: 7/10

Makeup/Costumes: 7/10

Use of Props & Animatronics: 9/10

Set Design: 9/10

Overall Attraction Rating: 8/10

This is one of our favorite hayrides. The scenes always go above and beyond expectations and never cease to amaze us with their creativity. Without giving away too many spoilers, here’s what you can look forward to this year: The return of the blood squirt effect in the slaughterhouse, some new animatronics in the cryo scene, and an all new claw scene that you won’t want to miss towards the end of the hayride. Our only concern with this attraction is that the actors in the cryo scene and in the beheading scene weren’t loud enough and were almost totally inaudible; a microphone in those areas may help with the story telling of the scene. Our absolute highlight of this attraction was the mayhem of the big top circus which got new music this year and had some of the best acting in the whole attraction.

Nocturnal Wasteland:

Actors: 7/10

Makeup/Costumes: 7/10

Use of Props & Animatronics: 9/10

Set Design: 9/10

Overall Attraction Rating: 8/10

The sets in this attraction are mind blowing and larger than life. From walking through full size school buses and other vehicles, to a giant laser swamp, to massive tree’s that come to life as you walk passed them, there is something amazing to see around every corner. Some cool new animatronics this year, along with the long awaited return of the giant Tesla Coil. Will you survive this horde of mutant cannibals that roam the Nocturnal Wasteland?

Frightmare Asylum:

Actors: 8/10

Makeup/Costumes: 8/10

Use of Props & Animatronics: 9/10

Set Design: 9/10

Overall Attraction Rating: 8/10

Now that we made our way through the wasteland it was time for the indoor portions of the haunt. Being that the sets in these haunts are on a smaller scale than the two outdoor haunts, you really get a good sense of just how amazing the attention to detail is here. Every room is beautifully constructed and has its own unique purpose. This attraction is home to nightmarish nurses, disturbed doctors and is packed with bone-chilling special effects. One of the biggest highlights for us in this attraction is the scene with the “Silent Hill” nurses, it always has the creepiest feel to it.

Den of Darkness:

Actors: 9/10

Makeup/Costumes: 9/10

Use of Props & Animatronics: 9/10

Set Design: 9/10

Overall Attraction Rating: 9/10

After surviving the asylum it was time for us to tip toe through the darkness. This is hands down our favorite attraction every year and this season there were no disappointments. It honestly feels like every year this attraction just keeps getting better and better. This all-out assault on your senses is like nothing you have experienced anywhere else. From the stench of death and rotting flesh in the morgue to the real life horror movie atmosphere of the nuns with the slow moving strobes. This is one attraction you will not want to miss out on this season.
