Review of Arasapha Haunted Hayride and Bates Motel

Review of Arasapha Haunted Hayride and Bates Motel A soldier's Halloween treat Halloween Games Halloween Recipes 

   What is Arasapha?


It is a very popular Halloween event that has been consistently ranked one of the top attractions in the United States by, Hauntworld Magazine, CNN.com and USA Today.  If you live in the Philadelphia area then visiting Arasapha Farms Haunted Hayride and Bates Motel is a fun thing to do during the month of October.  It is located in Glen Mills, PA, approximately 35 minutes from center city Philadelphia, and it is truly a frightening experience for the whole family.  Arasapha is a favorite for my family and it has become a Halloween tradition visit this attraction each year.  We started out doing it as a family and now my children love to go with a group of friends.
 

   What Are The Attractons At Arasapha?

Arasapha has three attractions, a Hayride, Corn Maze and Haunted House each with it own unique tactics to scare the guests.
 

Haunted Hayride

The haunted hayride always seems to be the most popular ride so we always head right to that line first.  The Haunted Hayride is a 20 minute heart pounding wagon ride through a dark forest area.  It is filled with special effects, terrific stunts, incredible sets, and lots of monsters.  Each of the twelve wagons are equipped with sound; they are fairly low to the ground, which allows for interaction between the guests and the actors that creep out of the dark. Once the wagons load the guest it is a continuous ride.  You will find yourself moving though high action scenes.  The use of fire is incredible and it adds to the excitement. If you are afraid of chain saws be aware at all times during your journey.  This ride is perfect for children and adults.  I would highly recommend that you place children in the center of the wagon rather than on the sides where a ghoul or zombie could approach them.


Bates Motel

 

Once you finished the hayride check out the Bates Motel. The line for this can get a bit long but be patient it moves pretty quickly.  Actors wander all around the area especially around the outside of the Bates Motel so be aware of your surrounding.   This high action haunted house is not intended for children under 8 years old. In this classic mansion you will find traditional style scenes with moving props, special effects, cool lighting and an awesome sound track. You should never let your guard down for evil lurks in the dark corners of the house, and the actors love guest who scream!!!


Corn Maze

 

Your last experience of horror while visiting Arasapha is the Corn Maze. You will journey through tightly packed corn stalks along a path that twists and turns. At any time, usually when you least expect it, demons and goblins will appear and disappear within the stalks of corn, rise from the ground or jump out from dark corners. This along with the terrific props, great animation and eerie music make this a frightful experience.
 

   What Is The Best Time To Visit Arasapha?

The closer it gets to Halloween the larger the crowds.  I would suggest that you go as early in October as you can.  In fact the first weekend that they are open the weekend rates are discounted.  In addition, I would recommend that you arrive early to beat the crowds.  The activity begins at dust so get there at least 30 - 40 minutes in advance.  It is much better to wait in line for it to open than to arrive later and have to deal with the enormous lines for admission. The attractions open October 1st.and continue thru October 31st.  There could be some week nights that they are closed in early October so be sure to check the official website for details.   The times are usually Sunday thru Wednesday 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm EDT and Thursday thru Saturday 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm EDT
