After a 1/2 mile hayride out into the wilderness, you will be dropped off to start your 45 min., depending how fast you run, journey into madness.Here your deepest fears await you as you walk the over mile long trail encountering beasts and freaks along the way. Clowns, mazes,monsters and terror await you at every turn. If you survive the trail, a wagon waits to take you back up front where you can purchase refreshments.

Forever a favorite
Began going to this haunt when I still lived in Ohio and it immediately became one of my favorites. There is something deeply unsettling about the initial hayride out and being dumped in the middle of nowhere where the haunt begins. The staff always seems super eager to respond and play along if youre in a goofy mood. I now live in Florida, but still talk about it all the time, and last season travelled back to Ohio specifically to revisit all of my favorite haunts. This was at the top of my list, and did not disappoint. Highly recommend.

The best scare out there!
Nightmare in the Wilderness is my favorite! Not only does it take place in the woods which is so much better than some building in the city,but you ride on a hay wagon into the woods. The length of the trail was much longer than I expected and I loved that! So worth the admission which is very reasonable. Lots of fun features, many I hadn't seen at other haunted houses. My favorites had to be Michael Myers and Jason! The entire crew is so into their characters but those too were so realistic it gives you chills! I will go every year!

Great attraction
We go to a lot of different houses every year, but this is the first one on our list and our favorite. I look forward to this one the most. I was a little sad that no monsters came out while we were taking the hayride back to the field, but overall, it is the best one we have been to in years

The Apple Cabin is the best!
Absolutely stellar haunted attraction. I've been going since the late '90s, and we still go every year. Totally worth the drive, no matter where you might be coming from.

Good haunted trail
Over all a decent experience, but you go in as a group the same as most haunted houses, and if you go through too fast you will catch up to another group and see who is going to scare you before they do which takes away from the experience

Haven't been to this one in a few years but definitely one of my favorites. Very different from other haunted houses. Love that it's outdoors.
