Witches Wood: The New Salem “Witches of New Salem” haunted woods is a frightening experience with over 20 attractions and dozens of actors and props.

It’s up to you on “witch” path to take, whether you take the “Twisted” or the “Wicked” you will scream around every corner.

Haunted Maze: If that’s not thrilling enough, dare to enter the Haunted Maze. With dead ends, twists, and turns, it’s not just the maze that’s bewildering; a team of nefarious corn stalkers lurk in the shadows, waiting for their next unsuspecting victim.
