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
  • Email Verified Not worthy

    Not a worthy attraction. They try to scare us with some night toy!! The prices are cheap...still we expect something to scream or jump.

  • Email Verified Had a fabulous night

    I had a fabulous evening here, and quite honestly, it’s one of the best hayride I’ve ever experienced. Great actors pumped with energy to scare us. $10 admission fee was very cheap.

  • Not enough scary

    Took my son for his first haunted attraction and we all are very disappointed with the overall experience. The hayride was good but not enough scary. The trail was just a walk through decorated trees. We expected a lot of jump scares in every turns…may be they are short in staff. All we got feared was it was too dark.

  • Email Verified Average scares

    Got bored waiting in the lines. The whole damn thing was really not worth it. The only thing you may like is their cheap pricing; may be because they are providing average scares only.

  • Email Verified Excellent

    A must go place for hayride lovers. Excellent ambience loaded with tons of scaring sound and stuffs. Amazing actors and well-behaved staffs. Awesome experience at such a meagre admission fee of just 410. Keep it up Horse Creek!!

  • Email Verified Awesome!

    It just gets better and better every year! Good fun, lots of scares, and lots of laughter! Loved the story, set the mood for it. And weeded out the weak ones to ride back up to the fire pit.

  • Email Verified Great value, great scares, and great fun!

    The neatest haunt I have been to. A great environment and value. Affordable enough to take the whole family but it may be too much for preteen kids.

  • Totally Scary

    They set up the scares so well and you're never safe! Don't turn the corner thinking you're finally out of it because you never know what's there. It scared me enough to give me a panic attack!

  • Spooky

    My kids love Horse Creek. It has been two years in a row, they’ve never repeated anything. Excellent hayride and the walk in the dark woods were damn scary. We all got spooked and enthralled by the sounds of the night toy. Can’t wait to see them next year.

  • Email Verified Great night of fun

    Our group has made this a yearly tradition for a night of fun. The organizers are great at making changes every year so you aren't seeing the same thing over and over. The workers are all great from beginning to end. We love the fear factor. It's just enough to make you look over your shoulder. You can tell they put a lot of time and effort into this facility.

  • Haunting at Horse Creek

    The atmosphere is terrifying, the storyteller is engrossing and peaks your heightened imagination. Be prepared for a night to remember and you will want to go back again. I have heard that it gets better every year. And the proceeds go to a great cause.

    The whole thing looked so professional and clean and the actors were guinuenly scary as well as the special effects makeup put into it. You also donate to a charity which makes you feel good about crapping yourself
