The Haunting Experience on Highway 61
10900 East Pt Douglas Road
Cottage Grove, MN 55016

Welcome to the Haunting Experience, the scariest of all the Halloween attractions and haunted houses in Minnesota.

Hayride Attraction:

Oldest Haunted Hayride in Minnesota

It would not be a trip to the Haunting Experience without hopping on the scariest haunted hayride in MN. Gather your family and friends, jump onboard, and take a ride on the longest consecutively running hayride in the state. With over 33 years of operation, we have a legacy of terror that our family has honed to leave our guests terrified.

If you dare to venture out into the oldest and most frightening haunted hayride attraction in Minnesota, prepare to pass through deep tunnels and gnarled trees. You will also encounter the remnants of a twisted two-century old family, their bodies disfigured with insanity, age and the horrors of their past. Perhaps, they’ll invite you to stay with them in the Halloween hayride…or force you to haunt the stalks with them forever.

Do not come alone, though. Our attractions are not for the faint of heart. You will enjoy sharing this experience with friends and family. The entire  Haunting Experience (Hayride and Haunted House) lasts from 45 minutes to an hour and is suitable for all ages as long as you and your group can handle what we have in store – or at least, if you think you can.

If you and your group are brave enough to join our haunted hayride attraction, you will be taken through the terrors of Wilhelm Steelworks, scream as we pass our haunted forest, and jump out of your seat as you spot the creatures that lurk along the tractor trails.

And if you are lucky enough to survive the entire haunted hayride trip, you will enjoy a laugh and some dark conversation with the cannibalistic monsters and madmen who inhabit the area. Just be very, very careful.

Oh, and that’s just the beginning.

Haunted House:

Walk through the scariest haunted house in Minnesota filled with terrors and dark entities that roam the hallways.


The Haunting Experience is home to the longest-running hayride in Minnesota. Jump onboard and scream for your life as you pass through the haunted forest and the horrors of Wilhelm Steelworks. Beware of the maniacs and monsters that lurk along the tractor trails, waiting for their next victim.
