10 Nights of Screams and Frights


Frightmares at Buck Hill returns for its fifth season and 10 freakishly frightening nights beginning on Friday, Oct. 11 and running through Sunday, Oct. 27. In addition to being home to ghosts and ghouls, Frightmares also features some of the area’s best live entertainment along with a full service bar and restaurant.


For countless generations it has crouched, a brooding malevolence, dominating the landscape. Those who have tried to build on its land have died or gone mad.

Its soil is untilled. The twisting paths through its hollows are rarely tread and, then, only by the foolhardy, or desperate. The remnants of man’s attempt to tame this haunted place are few, but a forbidding reminder of what lies just out of sight, in the shadows.


Come and visit, if you dare, Frightmares frightful attractions, including:


  • New - Under Bellharm - The Bellharm Asylum has burned, but deep below ground madness survives.

Barely recognizable as human, generations of descendants of the original inmates still live in the crumbling, damp, and fetid netherworld of the asylum’s forgotten basement level.


  • Nestled in a rustic hillside setting, the Orchard Manor Dead and Breakfast is a five bedroom, two-story Victorian charmer offering stained glass windows, preserved moldings, hardwood floors, and an exquisite fireplace in the formal dining room. Built in 1892, this house is a historical treasure, just waiting for the

right owner.


  • The Fright Factory – The Deville Paint Manufacturing plant is closed. Management has disappeared, and the head office denies all responsibility for whatever

may have happened. Screams of victims of the toxic disaster can still be heard from within the factory’s walls.


  • The Haunted Hollow is the hunting ground of Rattlin’ Jack, a creature who is said to have grown in a single night from the dank gore-soaked earth of The Hollow. The details of that ghastly night—the sacrificial magic, blood, and torment—are pure conjecture.


  • The Magic Maniac Show featuring “the Halls of Magic,” as seen on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
