Haunted Forests (St. Adolphe & Springfield)

In Eastern Manitoba, we have two terrifying haunted attractions.

Deer Meadow Farms’ Forbidden Forest & Storybook Lane – Deer Meadow Farms has not one but two Halloween attractions! On October 15, 2021, The Forbidden Forest is taken over by ghouls, ghosts, madmen, and monsters of all kinds and, if you dare to enter, be prepared for a nightmarish experience that will haunt your dreams.

Your journey begins with the Haunted Hayride taking you to The Forbidden Forest that has eighteen larger-than-life sets and fifteen acres of Forest filled with creatures lurking in the shadows and full special effects with lights, sound, fog and SFX. It’s no wonder that it is one of Manitoba’s top-rated Halloween Thrillers and promises Spooky & Downright Terrifying Halloween Adventures!

Dates: October 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, and 30.

While the Forbidden Forest can be a little extreme for young children, kids can still have loads of Halloween fun at Deer Meadow Farms’ Storybook Lane! Your child’s favourite storybook and fairytale characters are lost in the Storybook Lane! Trek through the Lane to meet and search for the charming characters! More details are coming soon, so don’t forget to visit their website for updates!A Maze in Corn’s Haunted Forest – Open now is A Maze in Corn’s Haunted Forest.
