For over 20 years, the Haunted Hayride at Arasapha Farm has been scaring its visitors with amazing props, digital FX, great actors and extraordinary professional makeup. The Hayride has been featured several times on the Travel Channel and has now been rated as the Number 1 Haunted Attraction in America by Haunteworld Magazine, USA Today and many other national publications. The Haunted Hayride is a 25 minute, action packed, heart pounding ride through the dark forest of Arasapha Farm, located just outside of Philadelphia PA, and is filled with huge, detailed sets, giant monsters and more pyrotechnics than a Kiss concert. With scenes like a 100’ foot long, 40 foot tall drive thru insane asylum, a full scale mock up of a New England church and a 200 foot long cave, the Haunted Hayride is an amazing example of Hollywood style sets and props. And then there is the scares. With over 75 actors and 25 scenes, it is no wonder why this event is always on the “top 13” national lists of the best haunted attractions. This year we have added a new section to the trail which will put it over the top. New sets include a huge drive through slaughter house with incredible animated props, custom sound and computerized lighting. This jaw dropping scene is guaranteed to strike fear in the bravest of souls!

This is the scariest haunted hayride in the country. You will be scared. Don’t believe us? Read the reviews by Haunted Attractions Magazine, and Hauntworld. Want more info? Take a look at our videos that were featured on the Travel Channel.
