That is a fun one ... had my daughter's 3rd birthday there a couple of years ago and all the kids loved it

Here's hoping that vandals aren't hitting it again ...

Are there any issues getting to it? Isn't Valley Road closed right now? We went a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. I wasn't sure if it was going to be open again this year since last year he seemed to have a lot of trouble with people destroying his displays. Glad to see he is still putting on a great event for those that don't want people jumping out at them with Chain Saws. :biggrin:

It's south of Yates so it's still open if you come up Valley from Summit ... the closure is between Yates and Kane ...

We went last weekend in the rain and it was great! There was no one else there because of the weather, so we actually did get lost a few times (rather than just following the crowd). The display are always scary and entertaining. It's a great spot and super inexpensive for an hour or two of outdoor good entertainment. They also have a movie screen set up and a fire pit so you can hang out with a cup of hot chocolate after the maze.

I spoke to a friend who was there last night. Road is open and NO they do not have live props but some good ones with the animations they have.

At night a bit scary for little ones, I'm told. Very well done and some changes from last year. Good to go they say!!

I haven't been to that one but we're checking out the one at O'Keefe Ranch on Saturday.

Is it really scarry? Like for an adult male level of scarry? I have never been and it is very close to my home. Sort-of-sadly that I don't have any children to take with me. How much does it cost?

From a adult point of view it is not scary, but creative. Many of the displays have animations with sound. The corn patch is windy and can twist you around.

It is $8.50 for the evening, there is a fire if you wish to sit and enjoy it too after. Takes about 40 minutes if you walk it and stop and look at the displays.

Sorry, missed your post.
