Have you been to Nightmare Acres? Then share photos of your experience!

Welcome to one of the most scary, gory, full of jumping props from the side, above, and crawling at your feet. Do you have a fear of spiders, snakes, rats? The smaller barn is more kid friendly. There is no gore or blood. This haunt consist of twist and turns with different props and actors around every corner. If you like creativity, very scary, nothing like you've seen before......you have come to the right place. This haunt takes you through a "dinner for 2", slaughter house, heads, bodies, live autopsy, electrocution, Voodoo set up, and clowns. Be ready to scream and have some fun! This is the 1st year and FREE admission. If people want to donate, proceeds will go to the Minnesota Military Family Foundation. I will also be accepting sealed food for the local food shelves. This attraction may not be suited for younger children. Please spread the word, trust me, it will be worth it!

  • Email Verified Awesome Halloween event

    We were camping at Forestville SP for MEA break and came into Preston to bike, and noticed the signs for this. So we came back on Friday night and went through it. It's really quite amazing that they are offering this for free. There was a LOT of work and care put into the scenery here, and some really nice effects, props, and scares. Looks like this is the first year for the event... and if they build up from this level this is really going to be something. We thought this opened up at 6pm... we got there about 7:20 and they said they "weren't quite ready" yet. No big deal, we waited a few minutes and they let us go through. I was expecting a line but nothing of the sort. Which was sad because there SHOULD be a line because this is really well done. Maybe we just hit a slow time. Pros: -FREE! Donations accepted for charity. -Really, really nice props and scenery. Very spooky. -Cool themed area outside with a little 'graveyard' and fire pit you could sit around. -The actors we encountered were really good and fun (scary fun lol). Cons (Not so much cons, but suggestions for improvement next year): - We got to the fairground, and weren't quite sure if the event was happening after all. There were no lights at the street entry or other signage directing you in. We drove in anyway, and noticed some themed lights toward the back of the site and that turned out to be the haunted house. We aren't from the area so maybe this is more obvious if you're a local? - Reading other reviews here, there was evidently TWO haunted houses here? We saw people standing in front of a building up front, but again, no signage or anyone telling us where to go, so we didn't know. Was this a kids haunted house? We were two adults and a teen, so maybe it wasn't appropriate anyway. - Not a lot of actors in the house. This wasn't really a problem as there were plenty of mechanical props to provide startles, as well as EXCELLENT scenery. And the actor or three they had working did a really, really good job. It's quite possible we hit an off-peak period, but it WAS Friday night, Oct 20, but relatively early in the night. Still though, we had a great time, and were really glad we showed up. Thanks so much.

  • Best/ scariest haunted house I’ve been to

    I’ve been to a few haunted houses/mazes in SE Minnesota but this one was by far the scariest. I typically laugh at the people that get chased but this time that person was me lol. I was shocked that this place wasn’t packed, the lines were short, they had free candy, and the workers were friendly. They also have an additional haunted house that is more child friendly. 10/10 recommend. It’s free to get in but definitely worth giving a donation.

  • Email Verified So much fun

    My teenage daughter and I went and loved it. It was so scary! I could go again and again! I can't believe that they put this on for free and I love that you can donate to the MN Military Family Foundation. Great people, great time- I would highly recommend.

  • Hauntingly Spooktacular

    Absolutely phenomenal. One person’s personal collection. Meticulously laid out in not one but two buildings. Definitely worth the free admission, you’ll appreciate it so much donating will come naturally.

  • BEST in a long time!

    I have been to a lot of haunted houses, some pretty scary, some good attempts, but I have to say this one is the BEST in a long time. Some get boring, but this is very well done, GREAT scares, one after another! It is unique in the attention to detail. going from one themed area into another, amazing how many in one building! They just keep going! She really spent a lot of time designing the layout. It is AWESOME! Plus it's FREE, but definitely worth a donation! Great cause!
