Behind the scenes at the Bates Motel and Haunted Hayride


Welcome to the official blog for the The Bates Motel and Haunted Hayride. Last year we had one of our best seasons ever. In fact, NBC’s Mike Tiberi called it “the most elaborate Halloween Haunted Attraction in America” during his interview with us last October. Clearly if you are looking for sheer fear, this is the place to go! And we are looking forward to another great season in 2011, with new scary props, huge sets and monsters. Our Haunted Hayride is getting a makeover with a new trail section and three new sets that will be sure to strike fear in the hearts and souls of our customers! Stay tuned for a sneak preview of these new sets. But to make the season jam packed with things that make our customers scream and come back for more…a lot goes into our haunt all year round.

With just over 6 months left to opening night, the Bates Motel and Haunted Hayride construction is going full speed ahead! We have a crew of 12 construction experts working full time upgrading the infrastructure in the hayride trail, and adding new scary scenes to the haunted corn maze. Along with a new pond filled with monsters, this scary maze will also resurrect the infamous “clown show” that is guaranteed to strike fear in the bravest of people. We try hard to make this the top Halloween event on the east coast. Let us know what you think is scary; post a comment below with ideas and maybe you will see it come to life in October!
