the Haunted Hayride

The History of Haunted Houses: From Folklore to Fright Fests

Embark on a chilling journey like no other at The Haunting Experience’s haunted hayride, the scariest attraction in Minnesota. Join your family and friends on this spine-tingling adventure aboard the longest consecutively running hayride in the state, boasting a terrifying legacy of over 37 years. Brace yourself as you pass through deep tunnels and twisted trees, encountering the remnants of a deranged family with a haunting history that spans centuries.

This haunted hayride is not for the faint of heart, so bring your bravest companions to share in the terror and excitement. As the tractor trails lead you through the horrors of Wilhelm Steelworks and the chilling haunted forest, be prepared to scream and jump out of your seat at the sight of lurking creatures. Surviving the entire harrowing trip, you’ll find yourself face-to-face with cannibalistic monsters and madmen.

Beware, this is only the beginning of the horrors that await you at The Haunting Experience. Gather your courage and prepare for an experience you won’t soon forget – if you make it out alive.
