    A visitor writes on October 23, 2010: "October 22, 2010 A group of us went to this hayride and paid $20 per person. What a total ripoff! Do not go. It is not worth even $10 per person. Not scary at all nor entertaining. A narrator pretty much gives away everything about to happen and with a monotone unexcited voice. The best part is the haunted house at the end and it's not even that great. Can't believe this has been running for 20 years. They should state the only people who may enjoy it are children under the age of 12. "
