October is right around the corner and it couldn’t come soon enough for those who love Halloween. Luckily, Lancaster’s “Field of Screams” is more than prepared to fulfill your spooky needs and provide you with that good scare you’ve been craving.

Celebrating 22 seasons of good scares, “Field of Screams” has been open for the season since September 12 this year, and will remain open on weekends through Nov. 9.

This season there is a lot of excitement due to new features and fan-favorite activities. Serpent Falls ( a snake infested greenhouse) is open for the first time this year, and the 2 Annual Zombie 5k fun run for the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition will be taking place this year on November 15.  If being chased by zombies doesn’t motivate you to run, I don’t know what will!

Also new this season is a suffocation chamber on the “Field of Screams” hayride, and improvements have been made to the Nocturnal Wasteland haunted trail. There is also a new and improved entertainment area that now has a souvenir photo spot as well as games and movies for your entertainment.

Corn Cob Acres, a family-friendly attraction which includes a pumpkin patch, a barnyard and a Wild West themed area will be open through November 2.

Admission prices are reasonable and range from $14 to $16 for one attraction or $27 to $35 for multiple attractions, cash only but there’s an ATM on site. Front of the line passes are also available. Lancaster is an hour and forty-five minutes away from Wilkes Barre.

Helpful suggestions for planning a trip to “Field of Screams” include pre-purchasing tickets online, arriving early and purchasing VIP front of line passes due to the popularity of the attraction.

Whether you are into hayrides or haunted trails, interested in running a 5K while zombies chase you, or just spending a day with your family playing games and going to the pumpkin patch, “Field of Screams” has something for everyone.

“Field of Screams” benefits multiple charities including : The Boys Club and Girls Club in Lancaster, The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central PA, The Rutter’s Children’s Charities, The PA Breast Cancer Coalition and The Central PA Blood Bank.
