Started with 3.5 acre corn maze in the shape of 4 trees, each in a different season. Challenged navigational skills and mind. Visitors had to answer questions to get to the next station, each station would help you find your way out.
Opened the Haunted Barn in the fall. Prior to this, the inside of our house had been turned into a haunted house for the evening to haunt visitors. We had decided during Hallowe'en 2000 to move the Haunted House to the barn to allow more room and to keep the mud and rain out of the house!
