Located just West of Omaha off of Giles Road, on 20 acres close to the middle of nowhere, lays the Halloween attraction known as Scary Acres.

Opened back in 2002, this multi-attraction site has roots in the long-closed Peony Park, when in 1993 the Train of Terror delightfully frightened the amusement park’s attendants. When Peony Park closed its gates that year, the attraction morphed into the Fright Zone, which operated at various locations in the Omaha area, ultimately opening an adjacent Fear Factory. Then, yada yada yada, Scary Acres.

There are three attractions to get your terror fix, here: The Master’s Castle, the Haunted Woods, and House on the Hill. You can get tickets for individual ones, or all three for a discounted price. There are bonfires to chase away the chill in your bones, and concessions when you need to renew your strength to fight back the denizens of the abyss. Or those things under your bed. Or…well, you get the idea.

Unfortunately, back when I went, I only had time to experience one of the three, so I opted for the Master’s Castle. I’m not saying how my experience was. You’re going to have to see for yourself.
