Harvest of Fear Haunted Maze runs through October
CHICKASHA The Harvest of Fear Haunted Maze has begun its ninth year.
Jerry Reding and his wife Judy will keep the haunted maze open until the end of October, and the regular maze will be open for about a week after.
"We try to add something new every year," Reding said. "There was 8 inches of water on the field Wednesday, so it was kind of muddy, but now it has all dried out."
"We have three mazes small, medium and large," Reding said. "We also have a pumpkin patch where people can pick out their own pumpkins to buy and take home. We have bonfires going all the time at the place. We have a particularly large one that is pretty much going all the time, but we also rent individual campsites."
Reding said there is a horseshoe pit and a big sand pile where kids can go gem-mining when they buy a sack of sand. The site also offers a donkey, a duck and two goats that love to be petted, and kids can also hunt for fossils.
"We average about 8,500 visitors a year," Reding said. "People have said that we have a very soothing atmosphere here. We have lots of old farm implements and old trucks that have been repurposed, and everyone enjoys seeing those too."
