    What does C. Casola Haunted Farms offer, that other venues do not?

      The paintball is a lot of fun, and hard to find these days, but they also have the advantage of the large property to create hayride, and the Haunted Wooded Trail. Instead of being trapped in a building they made to look scary, an old wooded area with minimal decoration can always hold that extra flair.

    Rolling Hills Asylum
    This is an outlier the group. This isn’t a horror maze, so much as it’s a ghost tour company. However, since it’s that time of the year, I thought it might be a good idea to talk a little about them too. This place is already currently running, and pretty much always throughout the year.

    Additional Experiences:
    They also run at times, “Dinner With A Ghost” events, in which you have a nice meal while you wait for ghosts.

    What does Rolling Hills Asylum offer, that other venues do not?

      Much like our Los Angeles post, when we talk about the Queen Mary, this is a location actually believed to be haunted. Year round they run their haunted tours, and even have some shows with psychics. If you want to connect with the spirits for the holiday, then this is a great way to do so.
