Haunted Hayrides

1. The Haunted Forest at Becker Farms

3724 Quaker Road, Gasport, NY  / 

This year’s iteration of a haunted hayride at Becker Farms is a drive-through experience in The Haunted Forest.

In their own words: “Careful of the detour on Quaker Rd. Strange things have been known to happen on the lane that takes you through the forest that bypasses Becker Farms! The Haunted Forest Drive through is geared for ages starting as young as 7 years old depending on the child. The Garden Market and Becker Brewing Company will be open until 10p.m. for hot cider, donuts, baked goods and seasonal libations. After 5pm there is no admission cost to be on the grounds, only to participate in the Drive Thru, through the forest.
