Looking for a ghoulishly good time? Miller’s Nightmare Haunted Farm, located outside of Lewisburg, has been scaring the pants off visitors for six years. The Miller family has carved out 10 acres from their 75-acre farm for a freakish fall destination that includes a haunted 4,000-square-foot manor, a creepy corn maze, and a spine-chilling supernatural forest.
“About 15 years ago, our family had a corn maze that we did for kids and whoever wanted to do it around Halloween. I was in high school at the time and I would have friends over, and we’d scare people in the corn for Halloween,” says Berkley Miller, the owner and creative director for all things spooky at Miller’s Nightmare Haunted Farm. “I always enjoyed that, so I wanted to bring it back.”
The haunted house, dubbed the Miller Manor, is a new addition to the haunted farm, and it takes 30 to 45 minutes to make your way through the dark hallways and past the even darker figures. If you escape the manor, you’ll have to muster the courage to weave your way through the “Infected Crop,” or corn maze, before overcoming the creepy cast of characters in the “Demented Forest.” And don’t leave without experiencing the ghastly Toxic Bus Escape Room.
Your courage will be rewarded with even more white-knuckled games and bloodcurdling grub. “I think we’ve got a little something for everyone who enjoys a good scare,” Miller says.
Miller’s Nightmare Haunted Farm will be open every Friday and Saturday during the month of October, with gates opening at 6:30 p.m. General admission tickets are $15. Guests who wish to skip the line can purchase fast passes for $25. Tickets can be purchased onsite or online. 1605 Carroll Hill Road, Lewisburg, millersnightmare.com
