Nothing says Halloween like a haunted house and hayride. Saturday night we headed out to Boone Hall Plantation, a.k.a. Saw’s Scream Farm, for their spin on the spooky tradition. You may have seen some of their commercials on prime-time TV — one was deemed too disturbing to be shown before 8 p.m. And that’s always a good sign. The folks at Boone Hall have kicked things up a notch this year, hiring a consultant who’s worked with Universal Studios to improve the attraction. The house has been split into two separate houses this year — with two separate price tags — but they’re so full of tight twists and turns they feel like the same size as last year’s single house. The hayride through the dark woods includes plenty of undead yokels prone to grab you through the railings, or — watch out — jump right on up and scare the bejeebus out of you. But beware: this haunted fun-land attracts hordes of shrieking high schoolers and a lot of lines. So get there early, bring a good attitude, and wear a pair of shoes you don’t mind getting muddy. And leave the little kids at home. —Erica Jackson
