Your journey starts on a dark Brandywine country road...

October 2019

Mad movie set effects and crazy characters from below and beyond imagination combine to scare the beegeezus out of everyone brave enough to visit Arasapha Farm…in the dark…in October.

Sometimes hype is just hype. But at the Bates Motel, yikes is freakin’ yikes! No one is immune to the mournful shrieks, explosions, digital soundtracks, and off-the-chart creep meter that THE TRAVEL CHANNEL, USA TODAY, and HAUNTWORLD MAGAZINE have called one of the best, must-see Halloween attractions in the country.

The Bates Motel is a dramatic, high-action attraction that is not recommended for children under 8 or people with heart conditions. From the moment you enter you’re transported to another time and place. Cringing your way through this heart-pounding experience, you’ll see levitating spirits, floor boards that come alive, pictures with eyes that follow you, and incredible, custom animatronic props that you will not see anywhere else.

Bring someone to hold on to and get ready for the Haunted Hayride of your life!

You’ll find out that the Headless Horseman really does ride again! And your Haunted Hayride will be 25 minutes of non-stop horror, mayhem and madness. Wagon wheels creek and moan as you make your way through the dark forest of Arasapha Farms. Life-like sets, giant monsters and more pyrotechnics than a Kiss concert will keep you on the edge of your seat. And you’ll never do the drive-thru lane at McDonalds again…after your memorable experience at the 100’ foot long, 40’ foot tall drive-thru insane asylum! You’ll come face to face with the ‘spirited’ congregation at a New England church – and shudder your way through a 200 foot long cave!

And if that isn’t enough, the third act in this trilogy of terror is the Revenge of the Scarecrows Haunted Corn Trail. Take a terrifying walk through a corn field filled with haunted buildings, tons of animatronic monsters, and over 30 actors in full makeup and custom costumes. Feel someone watching you? You’re right…and the high tech animations and digital sound effects that fill the night will blend with horrific screams…yours, perhaps?

And even if you’ve been here before, new scenes, effects and creepy residents come to life each year…and they’re frightfully anxious to meet you
