Haunted Hay Ride

Join us for Dave’s Amazing Halloween Hay Ride! It’s better than ever this year with a ride through acres of terrific trails, wild woods and a mysterious marsh. You might spot a great blue heron, a snowy egret or even a bald eagle! See a rainbow of fall colors as you travel through the tunnel of trees. According to legend, long ago the ghosts of Caribbean pirates navigated from the Gulf of Mexico up through Illinois to hide away in these marshes. If you look closely you will see these spooky pirates too! They might be fishing, shooting a cannon or just sitting around a campfire. The spooky sights are fun for all ages and not too scary for the little ones.

Rides are about 15 minutes long. $5 per person, 2 and under are free.

Open Sat – Sun 10 am – 8 pm

Columbus Day (10 am – 8 pm)

Friday (5 pm – 8 pm)

Nighttime Hay Ride

Spooky Nighttime Hay Rides! Dare to enter the murky marshes and eerie forest after sunset at Dave’s Pumpkins in Huntley. Everyone knows our Halloween hayrides are great fun in the afternoons, and now you can enjoy the same ride after dark. Still good for all ages, there are no live actors, no chain saws, just decorations that seem to come to life in the crisp fall evenings.

2023 Schedule TBD
