Though at first glance it seems to be a contradiction, Meadowbrook Pumpkin Farm and Market hosts a horrifying opportunity to pass through their haunted cornfield. This adventure is far from the traditional corn maze in which children hardly bat an eye at cardboard cut-out figures. In fact, such startling creatures lie within it, that it is discouraged to bring children under ten years old - or those who are simply faint of heart.

This West Bend Halloween destination is open regular hours everyday, but the maws of the entrance to the haunted cornfield are only open on Fridays and Saturday from 1pm to midnight until November 1st. The payment of $23.00 will gain admittance to 45 minutes of terror underneath the night sky.

Each Halloween, the Meadowbrook cornfield becomes possessed by eerie fog, live actors, chilling sound effects, and lighting that riddles the senses. The haunted cornfield is not the only attraction though. There is also a bonfire around which people gather to hear unnerving ghost stories. Whether mentally preparing oneself for a night of fright or extending the fun after braving the horror of the haunted cornfield, everyone has a place to be in the Halloween atmosphere.

Just as a suspicious shadow can deceive the eye, so can a name deceive the mind. The Meadowbrook Haunted Cornfield is a among the most frightening areas in West Bend around Halloween. All those who love or might love the thrill of being startled beyond reason are encouraged to come. If they dare to cross its threshold, of course.
