COVID Safety Measures
PLEASE BRING A MASK: At this time, we ask that the unvaccinated wear masks at all times. We also ask that you use social distancing when in the line waiting to purchase tickets. We realize we are outdoors, but we need to keep in mind that we are a popular event and the only hayride in Western New York this year. There will be long lines and we should all be used to social distancing by now. Once you have purchased your ticket and get on the other side of the barn, the waiting area to board your wagon has been expanded and there are many open spaces for your group to gather where you can remove your masks.
We will be on the honor system, as of right now as far as vaccination status and masking is concerned. Should things change at ANY TIME, we reserve the right to update our masking guidelines and vaccination status mandate updates.
We will be limiting the wagons to 35 people per wagon this year (vs 40-45 in years past)
Since our younger riders are ineligible for the vaccine right now, we request anyone between 8 years old and 12 years old to wear a mask while on the wagon as well as in the walk-thru areas of our event.
WE HOPE COMMON SENSE WILL PREVAIL. IF WE WANT TO STAY OPEN FOR THE ENTIRE SEASON, PLEASE HELP US to HELP YOU HAVE A GREAT HALLOWEEN HAYRIDE EXPERIENCE.
We understand everyone is excited to get out and have fun again, but we are still living in unprecedented times where things continue to change rapidly. We ask our customers to be respectful to all when standing in lines both before and after purchasing your tickets. Covid-19 guidelines and vaccines are a controversial subject, but we are a business in Monroe County, New York and must follow all suggested and/or mandated guidelines to keep everyone safe, including our own family. We ask that you respect the rules and guidelines that have been set in place so we can keep everyone safe, have a great time and stay OPEN.
We look forward to a great haunting season.
