Metro Detroit Haunted Houses – Hayrides 2014

Posted by Glen LaGrou October 6, 2014 Businesses, Events, Fall Fun, Featured, Local Activities, Reviews

Haunted Hayrides, Haunted Houses and Haunted Attractions in Oakland County, Macomb County, SE Michigan, and Metro Detroit for the 2014 Halloween season.

Please read the recommendations of some of the attractions and review their websites. Some of the content on these hayrides are very family friendly and some feature material that is far too scary for younger kids. Please use your best judgment when selecting. Friday and Saturday night rides and attractions often have older/rowdier crowds so you may want to consider going on Sundays or going before 9p if you’re going to take a child. We have a listing of low-scare haunted houses for kids page. See related posts below.

The following Metro Detroit haunted houses, hayrides and other haunted attractions have closed over the past few years and won’t be in operation for the 2014 Halloween season:

  • The Amazing Corn Maze Haunted Attractions and Corn Maze in Leonard won’t be featuring haunted attractions this year.
  • Wojo’s Greenhouse in Ortonville had a Haunted Forest attraction for a couple of years to benefit St. Anne’s church but will not have a Haunted Forest this year.
  • Lavin’s Flower Land Nursery operated Haunted Nursery for a few years to benefit local charities but will not be operating Haunted Nursery in Southfield this year.
  • The 22 year tradition of Haunted Hayrides at Miller’s Big Red Orchard & Cider Mill appears to be over. I spoke to a representative today that confirmed Haunted Hayrides at Miller’s Big Red Orchard will NOT take place for this year.
  • Haunted Hollows in Armada is not operating the popular haunted attraction for this year but may come back in the future.
  • Nightmares for Hope Haunted House in Wolverine Lake operated a small haunted house attraction last season to benefit Autism research but an arson event has closed the attraction for good.
  • Dementia Haunted Attraction at Hampton Golf Course in Rochester Hills, MI has closed its doors to concentrate on golf.
  • The Haunted Castle in Beverly Hills, MI ceased operations in 2011. I was told they may re-open for 2014 but have decided against it. The Haunted Winery in Farmington Hills, MI closed in 2010.
  • Ladd’s Evil Acres will not continue (outside of the benefit listed above) due to the passing of Owner Adam Ladd. Adam had always reached out to us in the past to list his haunted attraction and we at Oakland County Moms were very saddened to learn of his passing.
