Things To Do: Pope’s Haunted Farm

Pope's Haunted Farm

October nights. Moonlight. Haunted barns and forests. It’s opening night at Pope’s Haunted Farm in Salem, AL!

Pope’s Haunted Farm

Brave the chill in the air and come explore more than 20-acres of scares at Pope’s Haunted Farm. Choose from four terrifying attractions for one night of action-packed thrills.

There’s the Haunted Hayride, Haunted Barn, Haunted Buggy Ride, and the scariest of them all, the Haunted Forest.

Candlelight tours include the 11,000-square-foot Haunted Barn and the more than a half-mile walk through the dark Haunted Forest. Encounter the frightening inhabitants as you make your way through.

Not up for a walk through the barn or the woods? Ride in a tractor-drawn wagon with up to 40 other people for more than a mile. Hold on tight through the twists and turns with state-of-the-art animatronics and live actors.
