Haunted Attractions:

Bates Motel:

Don’t forget to check into the Bates Motel, for the most incredible display of terror and mayhem this side of Hollywood. Filled with high tech special effects, digital soundtrack and lighting, the Bates Motel takes Halloween to a new level of horror…up close and personal! With incredible detail and stellar acting, it is no wonder why the Bates Motel is considered one of the best Haunted Houses in America. The realism in this attraction is astonishing, and is guaranteed to wow the experienced haunted house enthusiast. From the moment you enter you will feel that you have been transported to another time and world.

The Bates Motel is a high startle, high action haunted attraction and not recommended for children under 8 or people with heart conditions.

Bates Psycho Path:

For 29 years, the Haunted Hayride at Arasapha Farm has been scaring its visitors with amazing props, digital FX, great actors and extraordinary professional makeup. The Hayride has been featured several times on the Travel Channel and has been rated as the Number 1 Haunted Attraction in America by CNN Travel, USA Today and many other national publications. Due to the current health issue in our community, The Bates Motel staff have rebuilt the Hayride trail into an amazing walking attraction. It’s a 25 minute stroll through the tall forest of Arasapha farm, located just outside of Philadelphia PA, and is filled with huge, detailed sets, giant monsters and more pyrotechnics than a Kiss concert. With scenes like a 100’ foot long, 40 foot tall drive thru insane asylum, a full scale mockup of a New England church and a 200 foot long cave, the Haunted Trail is an amazing example of Hollywood style sets and props. We have added several new, huge scenes for the 2020 season that will blow away the competition! These jaw dropping scenes are guaranteed to strike fear in the bravest of souls! Want more info? Take a look at our videos that were featured on the Travel Channel. Come out to Arasapha Farm and find out why thousands of customers return every year to see all the new scenes and monsters we have added.
