Great Haunted Spots for Date Night and Teens

Haunted Field of Screams  – Thornton

10451 McKay Road, Thornton CO 80233

Ticket prices range from $39.99 – $69.99 and are all-inclusive

Denver Parent enjoyed a visit for our third year in a row, and this time we brought teens along! The experience proved to be terrifying and exciting and didn’t disappoint. Make sure you watch for the muddy fields and the attractions which use strobe lights and smoke if you have a sensitivity. The entry this year is through corn into the area where you purchase tickets and can be scary all on its own. This haunt is definitely made scarier by the location deep in a cornfield. There are also two escape rooms (which proved to be challenging), carnival games, drinks, and snacks! This makes a great date night!

Fear stalks the night at the Haunted Field of Screams this season. Family owned and with more than 30 acres of haunted cornfield, fear stalks the night at the Haunted Field of Screams, Colorado’s largest haunted attraction offers four contrasting interactive haunt attractions for one ticket price. With the purchase of your ticket you’ll experience all four attractions – Condemned, Zombie Paintball Massacre, Dead Man’s Maze, and CarnEvil in the Corn.
