This year is all about the thrills, chills, and scares! While not for the faint of heart, Maryland is chock full of haunted explorations for the whole family to enjoy. Get everyone’s heart racing with festive hayrides, spooky trails, haunted houses, and wicked tours all throughout the great state. And, once October rolls around, you won’t want to miss out on these five haunted adventures in Maryland.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, #1, #2, and #5 attractions have closed for the 2020 season. Field of Screams and Annapolis Ghost Tours will remain open to the public.
1. Station 7 Terror Trail
Located in Gambrills, Maryland, Station 7 Terror Trail is a thrill-seekers haven. Some say you can feel the chills as you enter the area. Equipped with a scavenger hunt, ¾-mile haunted trail, face painting, and games for people of all ages, there’s truly something for everyone. In addition, the family-friendly trail, called the Boo Haunt Loop, features subtle scares for the little ones to delight in. Plus, all of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Arundel Volunteer Fire Department.
2. B&O Railroad Museum Wizards and Witches Weekend
Hosted by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum, families are invited to get dressed in their favorite wizard/witch costumes for a spell-bound day of fun. Guests can dive into the fantastic world of sorcery and enjoy an edible potions class, wand making station, and sword demonstration by Medieval knights. Then, everyone can take a run through the magical maze! The Wizards and Witches Weekend takes place in Baltimore, Maryland.
3. Field of Screams
Rated the #1 scream park in the Delmarva and D.C. area, Field of Screams in Olney, Maryland is undoubtedly a spooky experience for the ages. From the “Camp Fear”-themed haunted trail to the 30-minute walk through a forest filled with haunted houses, there’s no shortage of frights. Most significantly, the haunted woods and cast of creepy characters are brought to life with realistic handcrafted props. Not to mention, carnival town games, like the Body Bean Bag Pumpkin Toss, are suitable for children. So, whether you’re up for a serious scare or a more family-friendly Halloween experience, go big at Field of Screams. Online tickets will be available every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in October, as well as November 1st, 6th, and 7th.
4. Annapolis Ghost Tours
This October, take a step inside one of Annapolis’ most notoriously haunted houses, The Sands House on Main Street. Throughout the ghost tour, guests can seek out the spirits that linger inside the mansion after dark. In addition, spirited guides will share dramatic retellings of real haunted stories. Then, enjoy a haunted walk through the spooky historic district of Annapolis. Children are welcome on the 90-minute tour running year round.
5. Bedlam in the Boro
Presented by the Lineboro Volunteer Fire Department, Carroll County’s Bedlam in the Boro features two main attractions for those with a penchant for spine-tingling chills. Dare to ride the four-mile haunted hayride or take a peek inside the 3,200 square foot House of Horror. On the other hand, the not-so-scary Bedlam Bypass Kids Zone is the ultimate hayride for kids of all ages. The ride even includes a trip to the Pumpkin Patch! By and large, you can catch the event on Friday and Saturdays throughout October.
