We have been fortunate to come to the Haunted Field of Screams in Thornton, Colorado for the past three years, and it never seems to disappoint. The three haunted attractions are always very well done; but this year, they added a few more little details that made the experience even better.
The first were the CarnEvil games. Being able to play mini creepy carnival games at night in the middle of cornfields added a perfect spooky vibe to the whole experience.
The mini escape rooms were also fun and surprisingly challenging for being five minutes each. We were not able to make it out of either!
Zombie Paintball Massacre is always a great time. The military style drill sergeant really pumps you up for zombie killing, and the soldiers that lead you on the trailer to load you up with paint ammo are hilarious.
The Dead Man’s Maze was so much fun. It was kind of a breezy night so the corn husks were blowing away and we didn’t know when to expect something to pop out.
The Condemned was by far the best attraction. I was there with all teenagers — ranging from 14-16 years old — and they were all equally freaked out, even though they tried to play it off. At one point in the attraction, there was a room with bodies sticking out of the walls. The room was pitch black and then strobe lights came on, so it was creepy to get through because you didn’t want to touch the walls since you didn’t know what was real or fake.
We had a great time overall and would definitely recommend these attractions and the Haunted Field of Screams to friends.
