Haunted Hayrides of Greater Rochester: Williamson, NY

From their website:

HauntedHayridesLogoEven though spine-chilling screams can be heard in the orchards throughout the late afternoon, ALL rides begin at dusk—for maximum chill-seeking. Depending on the level of spirit encounters in the woods, the typical duration is anywhere from 20 to 25 minutes, and rarely exceeds 30 minutes for your personal safety and mental health.”

This adventure is really meant more for adults. You can get the details on the legend behind all of it, the infamous William Fee, by checking our their website.
