A tradition since 1985 and selected in USA Today’s 2021 Top Haunted Attractions in America, Kersey Valley Spookywoods Haunted Attraction is a spooktacular event that you don’t want to miss. From the moment you arrive on Kersey Valley property, you are fair game to each and every haunted creature residing there. You enter the attraction along a dark, winding dirt road and once you start…the heart pounding excitement is non-stop. Solving murders, going into dark woods that have been a refuge for lost souls, exploring the cornfield where human souls are captured by the maniacal crows, visiting the home in the clouds where the four horsemen of the apocalypse reside, and finding your way through the cooler while avoiding the meat grinder are just a few of the things that you will endure while visiting Kersey Valley Spookywoods. Around every corner is another surprise!

October 24th & 31st  | 1pm-6pm

Have an a-maize-ing experience and enjoy a full day of unique outdoor experiences that are tons of fun! Jump on board the Kersey Valley Express Train, reach for the sky on the jumping pillows, race down the super mega ride n slide, explore the tree house village, take part in a dinosaur discovery, ride the pedal carts, hop on the cow train, see your kids adventurous side as you watch them on the kiddie zip lines, climb rock walls, and bungee jump! But wait…the fun doesn’t stop there. You can also bring your pet on a leash and explore the corn maze with your furry friend! There is a doggy bar and miles of pathways in the corn maze to walk your pets.
