Bradley Farm Haunted House


“Halloween fun for the whole family! Even though we aim to terrify (and we usually do), there are no gross-out gory haunts. And we have a special kids haunt with a milder scare and lots of kids activities on Saturday from 1-5pm. Starting in 2007, each year we set out to provide a fun but chilling Halloween event that the whole family can enjoy. Each year we have added new fun. We hope you enjoy our event and have a terrific, scary Halloween! Think of us for a fun group outing. Birthday parties, scouting groups, sports teams, etc.” – Bradley Farm Team
