The Headless Horseman Haunted Farm & Houses Experience has been voted the #1 haunted attraction in the country for several years!  The experience takes place over hundreds of acres of farmland that has been converted into a scary Halloween must do!  The experience features hundreds of actors in amazing makeup, professionally crafted sets, the walk of horror, 3 haunted houses, a corn maze and a fun haunted village.  This will get you in the Halloween spirit for sure and enjoying it with a group makes it even better! Read on for more details!
