The Field of Terror is located in East Windsor, NJ.
This guy at the front was hilarious:
I guess a girl he knew was here tonight so he chased her into the Port O John and waited outside while hitting it with the basebell bat:
After this she ran out screaming and he chased her across the entire field HAHA.
The Field of Terror has 3 attractions. The Haunted Hayride, The Haunted Corn Field and The Unknown Haunted Barn.
Here is a scene from the hayride:
The hayride at The Field of Terror was actually the weakest and least scary hayride I have ever been on. I hope they completely redo it. They had a few good effects on the hayride, like a giant spinning cylinder, but the rest was a bit boring. The scare actors just jumped on the back of the cart and stared at us. It was a bit of a letdown, but it was a nice day out so we enjoyed the stars and atmosphere.
However, The Haunted Corn Field and The Unknown Haunted Barn more than made up for this.
The Haunted Corn Field:
The Haunted Corn Field was a really long trail! There were so many unique scares here! They had a guy on stilts on top of a school bus! They had you go through boats! they had all kinds of crazy haunted structures! Wow! I have never seen any of this anywhere else! I was impressed.
The Unknown Haunted Barn:
The true surprise was their haunted house – The Unknown Haunted Barn. I have never EVER IN MY LIFE seen anything this unique. They had things you had to crawl under. They had things that created optical illusions – you had to figure out which hole in the wall was your escape route and crawl through it. They had all kinds of crazy rooms that were built by hand. I would come back here next year just for this house! I always talk about loving The Bates Motel for it’s great house – but this house is also great and they seem to have built most of it by themselves from their own imagination! There were almost no generic stock props here that I could tell. You really should go here to check this out! I did get one photo when it wasn’t so dark. This guy got up and chased us with a baseball bat:
Even though I was not fond of their hayride, I would definitely return here. I really liked the unique scares and the insanity that they thought up. They didn’t just think outside the box when they were making the DIY scares – they lit the box on fire and made you crawl through it. I like to see this kind of creativity – it is really the spirit of Halloween in my opinion.
