Haunted Nightmares

Haunted Nightmares Haunted House
Step inside and experience horror like never before! Haunted Nightmares is an intense attraction that features professional sets with theatrical lighting and special effects. (Our attraction is open during daylight hours on Saturdays and Sundays with a less aggressive show for a younger audience.)

Escape Rooms
Come Try Our New Escape Rooms! These quick-escape rooms are fun for the whole family! You have ten minutes to solve each room, and we have four different rooms that you can try. The rooms do not involve actors (so they aren’t scary), and the difficulty level varies slightly so there’s fun to be had by people of all ages.

Moonlit Hayrides
We offer moonlit hayrides out to our pumpkin patch each night that the haunt is open, where you are able to pick a small pumpkin to take home with you. This is NOT a haunted attraction, so it is appropriate for all ages. (Moonlit Hayrides do not run when raining.)

Corn Maze
Hill High Farm is home to one of the largest corn mazes in the area! If you visit after the sun goes down, be sure to bring a flashlight so you can try to find all of the checkpoints within the maze. (There are no actors in the cornfield; this is NOT a haunted attraction.)

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas

JACK SKELLINGTON, KING OF HALLOWEEN TOWN, DISCOVERS CHRISTMAS TOWN.

Henry Selick’s 1993 film, produced and co-written by Tim Burton, may have been a box office dud upon its original release but even the briefest of visits into a Hot Topic store will show that the film has finally found its audience. And how! A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is more popular than ever – from theatrical rereleases, tribute albums and merchandising up the wahoo. You’ve seen the film countless times but you’ve never seen it like this before!

From the wonderful music by Danny Elfman to the great gothic design from Burton, A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is a classic by all rights and we’re all too happy that the film has found a dedicated fanbase to celebrate the film.

A darkly comic musical, A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS tales the tale of Jack Skellington, a resident of Halloween Town who dreams of something different from the usual pumpkins and things that go bump in the night. After discovering Christmas Town, the focal point for all things wintery, Skellington decides he and his Halloween cohorts are going to take over Christmas. The result is one of the darkest (in a deliciously fun way) holiday movies ever released.

History and Hauntings

The history of our Manor House, Valerie Hill, spans two centuries. While her walls don’t talk, the ghosts that haunt her rooms certainly do. Our popular “History & Hauntings” event gives you the opportunity to hear first hand accounts of the activity of our resident ghosts – from the woman in the cellar that calls for help to the spirit of a boy perpetually locked in an attic room.

The evening includes dinner by Village Square Restaurant of Winchester, a glass of wine of your choice, and a detailed tour of our Manor House, focusing on historical fact and documented paranormal activity. This year’s menu by Chef Dan Kalber includes Southern Style Pot Roast, Mashed Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables, and fresh bread with butter. Dietary restrictions beyond a vegetarian option cannot be accommodated. This event is for adults 21 and over.
