Snyder’s Family Farm on a regular day is awesome. You can pick pumpkins, check out the amazing bakery with the family, go there for school tours, birthday parties, do some shopping, and more!
But in my opinion, you need to go NOW! It’s only once a year that Snyder’s Family Farm transforms into something completely different… Fear Farm.
I got the opportunity to be one of the scary people at Fear Farm two fridays ago- and I can tell you from the very beginning- Fear Farm is a work of art.
The “backstage” are had the largest quantity of creepy sh*t I have ever seen in my life. All of the people that are set out to scare you know *exactly* what they’re going to do… so trust me… if you think you snuck past one of us… we’ve got another creeper waiting right around the corner (or maybe in the cornfield). Jordan, who was my go to and the guy who orchestrates basically how to scare the crap out of you, has been doing this for 17 years, so we’re not dealing with amateurs here.
There are 5 different attractions you get to go through, and I am not joking when I say people drive from all over Ontario just to go through. Fear Farm has some of the best animatronics in Ontario (dare I say Canada!?)- and that ALONE is worth seeing!
There’s Carnevil- which I think is pretty self explanatory but basically you’re going to get stalked by creepy clowns…
There’s Hilybilly hike- nothing like going through the backwoods in the dark!
There’s The Hayride, which Natasha and I actually got the chance to go on… and despite me already BEING one of the scary people previously the same night… I still peed my pants.
**WARNING: Definitely some swears here**
There’s The Stalking Dead… which I don’t even need pictures to justify. Two words here…
Good luck with this one (you’ll need it).
And there’s Hillier House. I tried to capture this with my gopro but I couldn’t do it justice. This is hands down (for me) the scariest part. After going through all that you go through- you’re in a dark house full of people who look like this waiting around every corner, nook, cranny… maybe even above your head just to scare you.
And after you pee your pants (like I did), you can fill your bladder back up with some coffee at the bakery. Maybe you can even try the pumpkin pie that took 2 years to perfect… or the pumpkin whoopie pie, skor tarts, pumpkin tarts, apple tarts, candy kabobs, or all of them if you’re into stress eating (again, like me!).
Trust me- this is something you don’t want to miss out on. In fact- I’m going back this sunday- so see you there!
