Allen’s Haunted Hayride & Tavern of Terror

2430 Pittsburgh Road, Smock, PA 15480


In it’s 39th year, Allen’s Haunted Hayrides has become a Halloween tradition for decades. In 2015 they added the “Tavern of Terror”, a 3500 square-foot haunted walk thru of classic horror! To mark the occasion, the website was rebuilt and very well done as well. Both the hayride and Tavern of Terror will be back for 2017…

Take a wagon ride down Route 666 to the Haunted Barn, and back again (if you are lucky). The barn itself was designated as being truly haunted in 2001 during a paranormal investigation. The hayride concept has been built upon to include unlimited carnival games and rides, along with bonfire pits that are available for rent. Beware – the hayride is intense, the monsters are in your face! “For most people, the hayride lasts 30 minutes, for others, it lasts a lifetime!”

Opening night 9/29/17. Fridays & Saturdays in October, 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm, plus some other days. Closes at 9:00 on Weeknights, 10:00 on Fridays. Open on October 6-7, 13-14, 19-21, 26-31

Chad's Corn Maze

Chad’s Corn Maze

Route 711, Ligonier, PA

Chad’s Corn Maze has been creating a new design in the cornfield of Green Mead Farm near Ligonier, PA since 2009. Last year’s design was “Long Black Train”; previous years included”Kick the Dust Up”, “Chainsaw”, “Round Here” and “Fly Over States”, each designed by computer and GPS technology. The 2017 theme has been chosen: “Dirty Laundry”, apparently inspired by the Carrie Underwood song of the same name.
