Have you been to The Haunting at Horse Creek? Then share photos of your experience!

Hidden away in the northeast corner of Jefferson County lurks what many haunt enthusiasts consider the most unique and genuinely frightening haunted event in Southern Illinois. Upon arrival visitors enjoy a light-hearted hayride into the surrounding dark woods, but once the wagon stops, and they disembark the mood changes. Dancing flames draw them close to hear an original ghost story inspired by area lore. When the storyteller has finished, participants are divided into groups, provided a single light, and sent on an unguided walk. Beneath the trees, the sounds of the night toy with the imagination, beasts lurk at the edge of sight, and dark figures creep ever closer. Ahead the trail promises deliverance but is that all that awaits? Experience the terror anew this October. Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Hayride was interesting

    Based on a story and that was carried forward till the end without a break. Hayride was interesting with excellent use of props and special effects. Important thing was that we had fun and laughter and of course fear. Looking forward to come back again.

  • Unique presentation

    This haunt was unique with the kind of storyline and a unique presentation. You will encounter different kind of beasts, ghosts and monsters in ghastly makeover. Hayride was joyous. Had some of the best of moments, jumping, laughing and scaring. The actors were skilled and knew how to play tricks with our minds. Some scary and some funny. On the whole a great entertainment with a neatly executed trail and hayride. Don’t mind returning back for the next Halloween season.

  • Lots of screaming

    One of the best haunts in the state! The haunted trail had some intense bone chilling scares I had ever experienced. The haunt has a back story that will freak you out. It is a clever psychological ploy by the organizers as it sets the tone for the things to come. Your mind fill the blanks, leaving you vulnerable to the scares. The hayride was relatively fun. But the darkness of the woods would creep you out as you start walking along the trail. One flash light for each group is inadequate, and soon, you are mostly on your own and at the mercy of scare actors. Scares came from all sides sans warning. I jumped few times. There was lots of screaming around and I could see people running helter-skelter. Looking back, it was great fun. Recommend it.

  • Innovative scares

    The haunt had the right balance of creepy sets, innovative scares, and scary props. Actors were passionate about their job. They stayed in character, and scared the crap out of us. My wife virtually screamed non-stop in the haunted trail. In the pitch darkness, it was impossible to locate the scare actors. Hayride was relatively low intensity. For the given entry fee, it was a steal. I will come again with kids.

  • Scare the crap out of you

    Last year was good. This year was amazing. Everything was perfectly arranged, and the story well told. It is the story that germinates fear in your mind. The haunted trail had some of the best scares I’d experienced. The creepy character could come from any side and scare the crap out of you. It was pretty dark, and you just can’t figure out the timing of the scares. The hayride was relatively low intensity compared with the trail. Actors all did a great job. Fee was cheap as well. Check it out.

  • Email Verified Highly impressed

    I and GF drove for 1.5 hours to visit The Haunting at Horse Creek. We were impressed with the scares, props, sets and actors. The hayride was fun. But the scene changed once we started the trail. It was pitch dark, and each group got only a flashlight to find the way forward. It was a nerve wracking 45 odd minutes. Almost all the scares and props got me. She screamed few times. Scare actors were professional in their behaviour. Overall, it was quite an enjoyable experience. We will visit again. Recommend this place.

  • Email Verified Never disappointed

    We have been visiting this place for quite some time and it is always fresh and new. There was never a disappointment. There were two attractions, the haunted trail and the hayride. Both were smashingly good. The haunted trail was terrifying and there were enough actors to do the job. We were glad it was over soon. Actors had excellent makeup that was horrifying, even the attire was good.

  • Hayride was sheer thrill and fun

    I have always liked Hayrides and haunted trails for its sheer thrill and fun. It was a long wait outside but we forgave that once inside. The scenes in both the attractions were planned out well. There were great amount of scares reaching its audience spot on. The house was dimly lit and unaware about what to expect next. It was funny to see ourselves in such a fix. Kids were the most scared. They split us into different teams and we were separated into different directions. The isolation made us fear for the worst. One of the best options to spend a quality time with family and friends.

  • Worth Every Penny!

    I must say that this is one of the haunted houses which I and my friends got to know accidentally and after that we realized that this is such a good kind of a haunted place to come and have fun. The Hayride and the Haunted Trail were so much scary and creepy creatures hoped out of the dark. The staff was very friendly and the actors so real. The makeup, the props and the themes were all so good. We will definitely recommend this place to all of our friends and family.
