Sure pumpkin picking and farmstands are a great way to ring in autumn, but it wouldn't be October without a few scares. Schmitt's Farm aims to deliver both gourds and ghouls—truly a one-stop shop. Come October, the barn built by the Schmitt brothers gets a terrifying makeover and becomes The Haunted. The super-spooky attraction houses frightening actors, creepy animatronics and surprises that'll make you jump out of your skin. Plus, the nearby corn maze is just as terrifying. If you're looking to bring the kids, you might want to opt for daytime visits, as actors aren't present for the walk-through and the lights are kept on!
