My gf was excited to go to their Holiday Hayride after really enjoying their Haunted Hayride. After checking out pictures on their website, I was going to need some convincing...\r
The first stop was a LIVE nativity scene complete w/ sneaker and jean-clad teenagers playing Joseph and Mary. Next was the hayride. We journeyed through fields chock full of bizarre light displays w/ holiday music playing. It was like a holiday light display outlet had a clearance sale of all of their sh*tty displays and this place cleared them out. The grand finale of the hayride was when we went under a machine that shot shaving cream at us and then drove by a pen w/ 2 (what appeared to be) reindeer. If you told me they were actually elk w/ fake reindeer antlers strapped to their heads, I wouldn?t bat an eye.\r
Our last stop was Santa's workshop. I was most excited for this b/c the pictures of the elves on the site were possibly the creepiest looking things ever. They did not disappoint. They were all animatronic and were doing the weirdest poses. Most looked evil. In the middle was a man dressed as Santa. As we were waiting to get a picture w/ Santa, there was a little kid behind us who was very excited. He exclaimed ""Santa! Every year you bring us so many gifts!"" Santa replied ""Ahh mom and dad Santa help out..."" My gf and I immediately looked at each other, astonished. The kid then said ""No, its you, Santa!"" and Santa replied ""Nahh trust me..."" After that, I just tried to block everything else out. To exit the workshop, you had to navigate through a few more rooms of even more creepiness which finally led to a parking lot where there was a toy train set up on the back of a flat bed.\r
The whole experience was absolutely ridiculous to the point where I wasn?t sure if we were in Gradyville, PA or some sort of twilight zone/bizarro world. Please for the love of God do not bring children to this place! Parking was ample.
Pros: Cheap ($10)
Cons: Questioned sanity
