Many years ago this place really rocked the Halloween Spirit. I live very near by so we have been going every year for about 10 years. Not much has changed . A few new attractions and Zombie paint ball. We travel allot to other hayrides and make comparison. This place used to win hands down. Used too !!! Now it seems as if there is a major management issue. The place seems very understaffed and overly crowded. The lines are exceptionally long. We waited 1:36 minutes for Zombie paintball and there were only 15 in front of us in the wait . The barns are even slower. Here is the issue; the door man overly regulate the front of the line. They hold up each party entering.. Unless it's a Fire department regulation, I don't know why.????. Everyone gets buncH up inside anyway. Just let the lines flow. Also there are many No Smoking Signs. Most customers abide . The staff no. They smoke it up so much, your eyes and lungs are destroyed.. (Girls at Zombi Paintball). This just really makes me furious!!!!
The place could be extremely good. But it's understaffed, and Mis- managed. The field and barn closes to bone fire are their best attractions.
Lastly the value. It's getting darn expensive. Way to much for what's given in return. Never in the past!!!
Parking stinks. And they need to add some lights to the common areas and parking lots.. Ridicules!!!
So in the end, I say go elsewhere . This place is no longer in the same league as Creamy acres , Bates Motel or the Headless horseman. But it could be. Get you act together ..... It's really sad how bad it has become . Once long ago it really rocked!!!! Sorry...

We loved this place!! 4yrs in a row now they have metal detectors so it’s great to see they care about security nowadays.
People that work there are super nice!
The rides are great!! My favorite is the “house of insanity “ they are allowed to touch you and it’s very scary!!
Food sold there is cheap n delicious at least the hamburgers I eat lol!
Cool place!!

We have been to Field of Terror before for the MOST amazing haunted hayride and other attractions they have there. The parking is wonderful, the prices cheap. BUT... this new zombie paintball.... NOWHERE near the quality of the other attractions. They have a movie on their website which leads you to believe the zombies will be running all over and you can shoot them. ALL but one of the zombies are located behind a barrier and you can just see the tops of their heads. Therefore EVERY zombie looks exactly the same and is already covered in paint. The ride takes only about 20 minutes and I was shocked when they said "we are midway, does anyone want to purchase more paintballs?". There is no way there are 100 paintballs when you start out, because I barely shot anything and half way through we needed to load up. Also, after that half way point, there are three more stations and there is one zombie on a swing. THAT was the only cool zombie shooting on the trail. Also, midway, there is a big fire that shoots up which is really awesome. Their regular haunted hayride is $15 and well worth the price. The zombie paintball ride is $25 and is shorter and not as much fun.

Went this past Saturday and did three attractions: haunted hayride, corn maze and zombie paintball. Overall be ready for some very very cold long lines, yucky port a potties and some decent scares!
I would suggest that they add some characters to the inner parts of the corn maze and hayride. Most were obvious which reduces the scare factor IMO.
Overall had a good time and would return.

Clowns are definitely going to be big this year in general because of people dressing up as clowns and scaring children in towns. I highly recommend doing the cornfield maze if you want to get the sh** scared out of you. All the actors were excellent and I was having a heart attack because I am deathly afraid of clowns and they were everywhereeeee in this maze! The hayride was very cool too but tamed down. It was cool to see all the setups in the woods! Definitely should go if you can. Try getting there exactly when they open to avoid lines at this place, and wear crappy sneakers!
