Hey all! So last night myself and eight friends drove up from NYC to New Paltz to experience the Headless Horseman hayride/corn maze/haunted house attraction. The weather was perfect as it's been pretty mild here but yesterday it felt like Fall officially began. It was a chilly 53 degrees last night and it was perfect! Traffic sucked and we were late for our reservation but they were really accommodating. We didn't care for the hayride as much because our "story teller" who wove some story together about Grim fairy tales, the tooth fairy and the Headless Horseman didn't really seem to care about what she was saying. But we were impressed with the sets. The actors on the hayride were kind of whatever, too. Our favorite parts were in the three Haunted Houses because the sets were amazing! If anything Headless Horseman pays attention to detail when it comes to the atmosphere and scenes they create. We had such a blast, were scared out of our minds and screaming our heads off. The only drawback was that we waited in about ten different lines, so it took us about three hours to complete the whole thing. It wasn't bad to wait, it kept the anticipation up and they had some delicious apple cider. All in all, it felt like a proper kick off to my Halloween season as next weekend I'm throwing a party and the weekend after is the big night itself! Has anyone been to any big haunts this year?
