Crowd Control:

Not really a crowd control type of event. Hayrack is pulled by a hearse, so several groups are brought through together. Express pass allows for shorter line.


Pulled by a hearse, this hayride winds past several animatronic scenes, pausing for several seconds at each, while costumed actors interact with the crowd. Interactions include weapon-wielding clowns, mad men with chainsaws, and scarecrows. The hayride was enjoyable, and the weather made for a beautiful night under the stars. Most of the scenes seem to have the same animatronics, just slightly redone. The actors were hard to see, as the trail was quite dark, however the costumed actors back at central hub were very well done and highly realistic. It was family friendly, with many patrons being young children. Atmosphere had a good vibe, with several families coming out to sit by the fire to enjoy the surroundings. This venue is a great place to take the entire family, have a bite to eat, and enjoy some great entertainment.
