WARNING: DUE TO INTENSE FEAR AND TERROR YOU ARE REQUIRED TO SIGN A WAIVER ON-SITE.

You'll have to sign a waiver before you can experience what could be the most terrifying Halloween attraction in all of Minnesota. This spine-tingling adventure takes guests on a journey that is unlike any other haunted attraction. Guests find themselves utterly alone, completely abandoned in the eerie woods, with no choice but to face their fears.

The Abandoned Hayride isn't your typical hayride through a pumpkin patch; it's an "immersive nightmare" brought to life with three different phases.

Guests start on the actual hayride which is "totally new, totally different, actually scary."  Then you're let out at "Forsaken" a house in the middle of the cold dark 200-year-old forest. Organizers say, "It’s a residence for some of the worst-forsaken souls."

The final phase of this attraction is called "Exiled" and is the scariest in my opinion. After surviving the haunted house you are released "into the deep forest…. On your own. With only a small lantern to light your way, you must try to make it out. The darkness is real, as are the creatures of the night."

Where Is Minnesota's Abandonded Hayride?

The attraction is located exactly in the middle of nowhere, 7525 Highway 212 E in Chaska, Minnesota, away from all city lights and sounds, in a cornfield that is surrounded by a 200-year-old forest.

The Abandoned Hayride should be on your Halloween bucket list and you can visit it each year. The attraction continually reinvents itself, introducing new scares and mind-bending effects every year.
