4 Spooky Haunted Hayrides in NC

Haunted Hayrides in North Carolina – when fall comes around what better way to celebrate Halloween that taking a ride on a spooky haunted hayride!  Mysterious screams, clowns, zombies and things that go bump in the night.  You will be scared senseless by all the ghostly goings on!  Have a look at our list of some of the spookiest haunted hayrides in NC.


Carrigan Farms

1261 Oak Ridge Farm Hwy, Mooresville, NC 28115

Five generations of farmers have been working the land at Carrigan Farms and today, they provide some of the best apple picking in North Carolina! With a beautiful private quarry on site, Carrigan Farms also serves as a refreshing and super fun swimming hole, and a stunning, rural wedding venue.

“We’ve been farming this piece of dirt for over 100 years; our roots run deep. From asparagus to zucchini and everything in between, we are just a BIG garden. While, California grows more fresh produce than any other state in the country, we are 3,000 miles fresher and more flavorful. You can taste the difference.

On select October nights, our 275 acre farm is transformed into the scariest haunted trail in the region. If you are looking for a new and out of the ordinary way to get your heart pumping and adrenaline rushing this October, Scarrigan Farms is the place for you.

This is not a trail for kids. If you’re under 12 come back when you’re old enough. We’ll be waiting. If someone hasn’t peed in their pants by the end of the night we know we haven’t done our job.”

Haunted Forest at Panic Point

2808 Cedar Creek Rd, Youngsville, NC 27596

Haunted Forest at Panic Point – “11 short years ago we found an unhallowed plot of land, planted our little seeds of  panic, and gently nourished them with terror & dread until a full forest of fear emerged. The half-mile “Haunted Forest” Trail is our featured attraction. A 12 scene scream-fest with over 30 haunters to hound your every step. But that’s just the beginning. Some victims prefer the slightly shorter “Dark Trail” for its lack of light and unexpected twists. The “Haunted Hayride” rambles aimlessly through the woods among murderers, spiders & aliens.

“Killers in the Corn” is an assortment of distorted figures enough to make you want to hop the fence and flee with no regard for your own safety. It is the newest attraction but has taken its rightful place among our “Big 4”, purchased together as the Quad Fright. You’ll spend a couple hours going through 32 unique scenes and meet more than 70 creatures whose only purpose is to see you cower in fear.”
