We built a village on an island that is 5 acres in the middle of a 9 acre attraction. This year we built 17 buildings out of reclaimed lumber to give the feeling you are among those who lived on the I island back in the 18th century. The theme is the 18th century and you can read about the legend on our website. We have Puritans haunting and entertaining in the village square and through the willow paths with willows that are 20’ tall. There are seven crossing/bridges over water that go on and off the island. The bridges are covered in a misty fog and you have to make your way through the village with an old red flickering lantern! A big hit is the saloon with a real piano built in the 1800s being played by a piano player and accompanied by a salon drunk and a bar tender. We also have a red coat revolutionary soldier who dug himself out of a grave looking for his comrades. We grew a pumkin patch and a corn patch on the island you get to walk through as part of the haunt. Included in the price is a hayride past the haunted mansion. Our entrance is worthy to speak of as well. We have lights, fog, music, scones, funnel cakes, smore kits and more for you to enjoy while you wait for your group to be called to enter the main attraction. Our “boarding” system minimizes your wait time in a line and allows you to enjoy the atmosphere of entertainment. Come find out for yourself what happened across the river! Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Scary yet beautiful walk

    As you walk along the river and over canals, you can't help but admire all of the small details that make this haunt so real. I'm a seasoned haunt goer, and this attraction made me jump so hard I knocked our lantern over! Highly recommend, will definitely become a staple of our area.

  • AMAZING!!!!

    By far the best haunt I’ve been to in years! They created the ultimate haunted house experience from the hayride in until you leave; every detail from the decor to the set up to the costume/makeup and commitment of the scarers was so immaculate! Best $20 I’ve spent all year! Honestly made this Halloween fantastic! 1000% recommend!!!

  • Watch out for the witch’s mother in Menan

    What an outstanding setting with very substantial infrastructure of near Disney quality. Each stop is themed and there is more there than you can possibly see with your dim light which raises the scare factor awaiting the next startle. You can’t tell the real people from the statues until it is too late and the witch’s mother’s cackle will have you laughing all the to the next foggy bridge. Don’t know how the crutch man does it on all fours, along with some pretty tall monsters. Lots of fires to warm your hands so dress warm and don’t let the cold scare you off.

  • Email Verified Great with great potential

    I thought it was so fun! The beginning half was amazing and full of so many scares. The second half kind of missed the mark with less scares or areas that were not scary. I really enjoyed the feel and the overall look. I’m excited to see where it goes in the future!

  • Email Verified Watch out for the mother witch!

    What a haunt! This is a large attraction in a fantastic setting. We’re talking Disney quality infrastructure and unique themes at every stop. Is it a real person or a statue, you can’t tell until they scare your pants off. And the witch’s mother will have you laughing all the way back across the foggy river. Some mighty tall monsters and a crutch man walking on all 4’s. There’s so much you have to pay close attention in the dark but still can’t take it in. Lots of fires to warm your hands so dress warm and don’t let the cold stop you.

  • Beware of the River

    Right off the start you immediately put in a straw ride to the main attraction. I found this fun. And once you arrive the atmosphere for a Halloween Event is spot on. Once you pay for your group you can enjoy some food while you wait. Once your group is called your handed some old fashion lamps and sent across the River. Limited vision the lamps showed added to the horror presentation. I had so much fun. I’ll be coming back again for sure.

  • BEST haunt near Rexburg/in Idaho

    SO fun. At other haunted houses around there aren't as many jump scares, but this one takes the cake because you really do get scared, jump scared, but in a fun way where I don't have nightmares for the next week. The actors are super nice and WAY good at their jobs.

  • That was EPIC

    This is by far the beat haunted attraction in east Idaho! It was the best I have ever been too! It feels real and not cheap at all! It was well worth the money and the cold!

  • Email Verified HANDS DOWN THEE BEST HAUNTED ATTRACTION!

    I cannot find words for how incredible this place was. Not only did my husband and I have a BLAST but we were both terrified and entertained the whole time. We were in awe at the props because they are real! Going to other places I always knew it was fake but this place has such a good feel to it. The environment is welcoming for all ages and the goodies are delicious. Expect to spend lots of time here, there is so much to do. It took us 40 minutes to get through the whole forest! After we didn’t want to leave! The price is totally worth it and I can’t wait to go again!
