The Land of Fear is Maryland's newest and most intense haunted trail! Tucked away in the dense, dark woods of Taneytown, you will navigate through a perilous trail of your worst NIGHTMARES. For those who are looking for a more intense experience, you will have the opportunity to wear one of our glow sticks giving our creatures consent to grab you, touch you and contain you... This is NOT your average haunted attraction.


ONLY $20.00 per victim

CASH ONLY!! Bought at our ticket booth on site.

*** No refunds of any kind. All sales are FINAL.

If you are too scared to go in, or too scared to continue, then a job well done by the Land of Fear and its team. We did what you paid us to do, scare the YELL out of you!

- What is the deal with the glow sticks
Anyone who wishes to participate will have the option to wear a glow stick through our trail, allowing our creatures to grab, touch and chase you, SAFELY. The glow stick can be removed at any time you feel it has become too intense.

- Do you have any other attractions?
At the moment we offer one, completely outdoor immersive walk through trail. But keep in mind, The Land of Fear is an EXTREME experience. Some will not last five minutes through our gate.

- Is the trail handicap accessible?
Because of the natural terrain that our trail was built through, unfortunately, any handicapped individual would not be able to safely traverse through our haunt. We do apologize!

- What if it rains?
- We will not operate during heavy rain conditions because our haunt is completely outdoors. You can check our Facebook for cancelations due to inclement weather.

- Is there food? Im hungry!
- We will have an assortment of light snacks available for purchase (CASH ONLY), and if there are any food trucks attending we will announce it via Facebook ahead of time.

- How long is the trail?
Everyone makes it through our trail at a different pace, but you can expect it to last approximately 30 minutes.

-Will I have to wait in line?
Yes, so please plan accordingly. As of now, we offer one walk through trail. We try to space out each group as to offer the best, most immersive experience possible. WE PROMISE, IT WILL BE WORTH THE WAIT!
