The Field is a creepy old fashion stroll through an abandoned village of destruction and death. The only light you see is the candle lit lanterns thad mark your path through the abandoned corn stalks. You experience many Victorian Era themes along your journey, excellent actors and jump scares unlike any you’ve experienced else where. The field certainly gets under your skin in ways you can’t imagine. The acting is supreme, the sets are beautifully haunting. The highlight for us is most definitely the puppet show house you get the opportunity to walk through!

Unfortunately due to COVID19, this year you can not go into Sleepy Hollows famous Haunted House. This year they went over and above to create an outdoor walkthrough incorporating newly designed areas that were both safe and functional alongside the original Houses outdoor structures. This was so so perfectly that it blew our minds. The sets, and actors and so elite here at Sleepy Hollow that you end up feeling entirely immersed in the scene you’re experiencing. You never know what to expect and sometimes it’s hard to decipher if what you’re seeing is real or one of the elaborate special effects their design team has created this time! The catacombs and graveyard scenes are by far our favorites. It is so difficult to narrow down favorites with this haunt! Everything is done so beautifully! Jump scares are done almost effortlessly, the scenes themselves are so dark and haunting that they invoke a nightmarish atmosphmere soley before even adding the special effects and actors into the mix!

After exiting the Hollow, you can choose to sit by the fire, enjoy some live music, a fire dare devil show, or grab a bite to eat from their Food stands. We purchased some chicken fingers, a burger some coffee and apple cider earlier in the evening. everything was pretty good but a bit on the expensive side. This is all relative considering the area Of Pennsylvania this haunt is located in.

After completing our attractions we were fortunate enough to catch the Freaks on Fire Live Show. Heather Parker has been breathing fire for 10 years, and Benjamin Cole has been doing his double staff spinning act for 6 years! They are both so talented and put on an excellent show! After viewing the fire show, we decided to check out the live music entertainment and then headed over to sit by one of the many bonfires before leaving for the evening!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Sleepy Hollow. This haunt is put on by an amazing team of individuals made up of a professional acting company, Disney imagineers, and special effect designers. We can honestly say this haunt is the most innovative we’ve seen in such a unique way. The special effects are immeasurable. There is no doubt that blood sweat and tears goes into the operation of this haunts and we were so glad to be able to be visit them again this year!
