Common Haunt Answers

    1. Is this a haunted house or a corn maze? Stalker Farms is a seasonal outdoor event that contains THREE haunted attractions called The Harvest, Pogo's Funny Farm and Paintball Stalker: Hunt for Zombies, plus a non-haunted corn maze. The haunted attractions are NOT mazes. The Harvest and Pogo's Funny Farm haunts require you to move through wandering corn paths and creepy scenes at your own pace. Paintball Stalker is a timed tractor ride. The non-haunted corn maze is a smaller section of the daytime maze and is a self-paced unlit maze that doesn’t contain our acting staff or scary props.

    2. What is The Harvest and Pogo's Funny Farm? Pogo's is a haunt that focuses on our McFalin's Carnival theme. It contains a few clowns and some trippy-dark places. The Harvest is a separate haunt that focuses on our Slasher Family traditions. Step into the scarecrow alley, see Jebediah's corn cult and escape the Slasher homestead. Purchase of a single haunt attraction ticket allows you to chose onsite to enter either haunt. Pick up the Double Dare No Scare ticket and  you can go through both haunts + the dark corn maze.

    3. How long does it take to go through the haunt(s)? Depends.  Once you enter a haunt, you proceed at your own pace. Some people stroll, some people stop and cry, some people laugh. Standard groups finish in 10-15 minutes per attraction once they enter. These are standard industry haunt times. Tip: we don’t recommend asking Jed Slasher for a chainsaw lesson.

    4. Will it be dark? Oh yeah! Yes, the haunts have moments of pure darkness and both haunts contain fog (natural and unnatural) and limited lighting. The non-haunted corn maze is mostly dark, unless the moon peeks out.

    5. Are there strobe lights, loud sounds and fog? Will I get wet? Yes. Both haunts contain fog (natural and unnatural), loud sounds, strobe lights, creepy actors, and props that buzz, hiss, growl, lurch and spit. You might get wet or muddy.  If you are pregnant, seeing a doctor, have heart problems or easily scare, then please consult your doctor before buying a ticket and attending.

    6. What are the haunt paths like? All attractions are outdoors. The paths wind through a real live cornfield on real live dirt. Paths are lined with straw (note to allergy sufferers!) at times. Paintball Stalker ride is also outdoors. You sit on a wood bench under cover. So, there will be mud, a bug or two, corn stalks, moisture, dirt, uneven ground, and fog.

    7. Is the haunt scary? Only YOU can answer this...it's always best to bring a squealing friend to laugh at. You don't get scared? Then you might as well laugh and enjoy the creepy outdoors! We will try to make you jump, laugh, and squeal, but we cannot guarantee pants wetting (many have wet themselves or worse) Only YOU can turn on the fun. Yeah, we said it before, NO REFUNDS! No refunds is an industry standard!

    8. What is the age limit? Can I bring children? The haunted attractions are not recommended for 12 years old and under. We are not parents! If you want your baby and children to see gore, blood, mutations, mayhem, or here screaming and eerie sounds, then we will not stop you. Poor kids! Sorry, absolutely NO REFUNDS. If you or your guest chickened out, we did our job! Kids are welcome in the non-haunted corn maze!  Paintball Stalker is not as intimidating either.

    9. How do I act or work at the haunt? Contact chief@stalkerfarms.com. We are always looking for passionate, reliable, creepy, and Halloween loving talent that wants to join our family. We do not take volunteers, we pay. We are active throughout the year...stalk us online and look out for haunt workshops, zombie walks and horror events! We dare you to contact us!

    10. What is the Paintball Stalker Attraction? This is a timed ride on a tractor pulled trailer that is armed with paintball markers. Tickets must be purchased separately from the standard haunt tickets because of date and time restrictions. Ticket holders will ride out into the dark cornfield and shoot both live and static zombie targets.

       

Pricing, Line, Parking Answers

  1. When is the haunt open? The 2016 season starts on Saturday October 8th at 7pm and runs every Thursday, Friday and Saturday in October, plus Sunday October 23th and Sunday October 30th and then Halloween! The Box Office opens at 6pm and the haunt portals open at 7pm. The Box Office closes at 10pm, but the haunt runs until the line is empty!
  2. What is Zone Loading? We have Zone Loading for our busy nights. Similar to airplane loading, we will call and post your ZONE listed on your wristband when the haunt is ready for you. You will get a zone number at the ticket booth (A, B, C, D etc) on your wristband. Rather than wait 2 hours in the far haunt lines, you'll be waiting in our midway area until called. When called, your zone will then go back to the haunt portals. There will still be wait of under 40 minutes, but not 2 hours! Expect to see Zone Loading on Friday and Saturday nights.
  3. What are the lines like? We all hate lines, but they happen. After the Zone Loading area, there are three line queues: for the two walk through haunts and a special expedited line for Fast Pass ticket holders. Fast Pass ticket holders pay a higher price but bypass the general two haunt lines and Zone Loading line. Check out our Calendar page to see crowd trends.There are no lines to the non-haunted corn maze.
  4. When are you the busiest? Our least busy nights are on Thursdays and Sundays...recommended for folks that hate crowds, lines and want a 'cozier' experience :). On Friday and Saturday nights, we'll post haunt line times at the ticket booth. For our busy nights when Zone Loading is slow, we will provide midway entertainment! 
  5. What is the 'combo ticket' deal? A combo ticket allows you to enter both walk through haunts and the non-haunted corn maze. IF you purchase a combo, you can go through either haunt or corn maze once at any time in the night so if one haunt line is long, venture into the corn maze or the other haunt first. If you want to do both the haunts and Paintball Stalker, we recommend the VIP Double Dare Stalker ticket.
  6. How much does this cost? Check out our pricing page! 
  7. I bought a ticket online, can I come down anytime? No. The haunted attractions are open on Thurs-Sat nights (and two Sundays) in October starting on October 8th. Even though you bought the ticket online, we still need to scan it at the Box Office during the listed hours and dates. If you show up at 11pm, sorry, no entry. If you bought a Paintball Stalker ticket, it is only good for the date and time on the ticket, pay attention to this. Check out our Calendar!
  8. Do you have group pricing? Yes! Groups of 20+ save $$. Groups that pay with one transaction go directly to the front of the box office line. Group rates cannot be combined with any other discount. Group rate tickets can be purchased at the box office when you arrive or online.  Groups of 20-49 receive $1.50 off admission; groups of 50+ receive $2 off.
  9. How do I get a discount or coupon?  We always have a PRESALE discount before we open! 1. Follow Stalker Farms on Twitter or like us on Facebook or 2. Subscribe to our email Newsletter .
  10. How does online ticketing work? Select the ticket images on the pricing page and follow the directions. Enter in the PROMO code for any discounts! Once you complete the purchase, PRINT out your ticket(s) and bring it to the Customer Service Window at the Ticket Booth anytime during the ticket window hours of operation (6-10pm). Show the Box Office attendant your ticket(s). Once your ticket(s) is scanned, you'll receive a wrist band(s) and can enter the event! Please remember to print out your ticket! Reminder: you can purchase your tickets 24x7 from Sept 28th-Nov1st and you can use these for any haunt night! Please arrive before 10pm though! The Box Office closes at 10pm! However, if you bought a Paintball Stalker ticket, these are only good for the date and time slot you chose.
  11. What is a Fast Pass ticket? Fast Pass tickets allow you to skip the general haunt line(s) and go to the front of the haunt(s). This line (if any) will be smaller than the general haunt line. We recommend you only purchase this upgrade if you plan to attend Stalker Farms on Friday or Saturday nights. Our busiest nights will be the last two weekends of October. Fast Passes are industry standard for those that don't want to wait in the general haunt line.
  12. Should I buy a Fast Pass ticket? Only if you plan to visit us on our busiest nights: Oct 21-22 and October 28-29th for 2016. We’ve been known to have 2 hour waits in the zone loading area and lots of city folk come out to see us each year! This year you'll be waiting in our midway WITH entertainment, so no worries. 
  13. How many times can I go through with a ticket? Once. If you buy a non-haunted corn maze ticket, you can go through once. If you buy a single admission haunt ticket, then you can go through one walk through haunt only once. If you buy a combo ticket, you can go through each of the three events only once. If you buy a Paintball Stalker ticket, you ride once.
  14. Are there refunds? No. If you didn't like it, your shoes got wet, you hated standing in line, your kid was too scared, you felt sick, you were scared, your boyfriend made you, the wait was too long, you saw your ex, or if you peed your pants...these are great excuses, but there will be NO REFUNDS under any circumstances. No Refunds is a standard haunt practice.
  15. Is there parking? We have FREE parking! Please be considerate when parking! Parking is a first come, first serve basis. If it rained, the grass will be muddy. Remember to leave your valuables at home. Please NO purses, bags or backpacks beyond the ticket line! Our busiest nights are the weekend before Halloween, so get here early!
  16. Do you sell food? Yes we offer a concession stand and food truck options. You can eat these treats in the line, but not while in the haunt experience.
