The Okanagan's scariest corn maze opens this weekend

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to jump into the spooky season.

Field of Screams at O’Keefe Ranch is now going into its ninth year and their haunted corn mazes are sure to be scarier than ever this October.

Starting Friday, guests can immerse themselves in one of four frightening mazes steaming from this year's theme, ‘Theatre of Terror’.

A big ‘ol throwback to the first ever Field of Screams that debuted in 2015 that featured plots from multiple cinematic horror films.

The first maze titled, ‘Classics From The Cyrpt’ recreates all the classic horror stories like the Wolfman, Frankenstein, and Dracula which is sure to chill you to the core.

‘Nightmare Next Door’ puts you as the main character in a 1980s classic slasher-horror film and will make you second guess what really goes bump in the night.

The third themed maze, ‘Forgotten Space’ based on our extraterrestrial neighbors is set to drive the nightmares as you’re stalked by menacing sci-fi alien creatures.

With three of the four mazes containing props and actors set to jump out and send shivers down your spine, the fourth maze remains the same as last year, completely dark.

No actors, no props, no lights, no sound, just you and your imagination to make you question reality.

Or if you’re looking to get real spicy in the dark maze, you can try out the audio experience ‘Welcome to the Dark Side’, where guests can bring their headphones and immerse themselves in a 4D experience.

While tickets for this year’s Field of Screams are already available online, those looking to snag passes to cheap nights will have to purchase them in person at the gates.

This year’s Field of Screams runs limited nights from Sept. 30 to Oct. 30, with gates opening at 6:30 pm and events starting at 7 pm.
