Is it just us, or is the haunted hayride an incredibly underrated Halloween activity? There’s something about the combination of fall feels and haunted Halloween scares that we just love.  Go with a date, bring the whole crew, show the kids what real fear looks like, or heck! go by yourself. Let us know how that goes for ya. Here’s where to look if you’re looking for haunted hayrides to check out in the next couple weeks:



The Haunted Hayride at Becker Farms

This time of year, Becker Farms pulls out all the stops for their Haunted Hayride and phylotec. Tickets are $10 per person and include both the Haunted Hayride and Phylotec. To make the night even more unforgettable, for an additional $75 you can reserve a campfire for your group to enjoy after the hayride, which is pretty baller IMO. They will light the fire and provide wood to keep it going all. night. long. The best party? You can BYO refreshments to enjoy around the fire. Also, groups of 20 or more can reserve a time for the hayride to start, so they don’t have to wait in line and can enter at discounted pricing too. If you have 20 friends this sounds like a no-brainer to us. Hayrides are weather permitting.
