Monster Bash Haunted House down in Harmony was named the top haunted attraction
in Minnesota for the third straight year, but unfortunately, it won't be opening this year due to COVID-19
. Organizers released a statement
that said, "Our guests', community, and student workers' safety is of the utmost importance to us. We hope to see everyone in 2021."
So now that Monster Bash is no longer an option, where should thrill-seekers go to get their fright on this Halloween
? I found a place that looks pretty good. It's called the Abandoned Hayride and is located in Chaska. Technically, "The Abandoned Hayride" won't actually be a thing this year because of safety concerns, but the attraction will be open with some modifications and a new name. It will be known this year as the Abandoned Drive-Thru.
According to its website
, the atmosphere makes things even scarier. This haunted attraction is located in the middle of nowhere, away from city lights and sounds, in a cornfield that is surrounded by a 200-year-old forest. Check out a preview in the video below.
If you love Halloween, you should visit Anoka one October. It is known as the "Halloween Capital of the World" and typically goes all out with their festivities but this year will be scaled back a little. Officials say they're making changes this year to keep everyone safe.
