About the Fright Farm (Halloween Haunted House)
Ramsey County Sheriff’s Fright Farm is a large scale, professional quality haunted house that is constructed and staffed by volunteers from the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office and community members. Fright Farm Haunted House is open on weekends in October of each year and is located at the Ramsey County Fairgrounds at White Bear Avenue and Frost in Maplewood.
All proceeds from the Fright Farm are donated to the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Foundation to support community programs, such as the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) and Canine (K-9) programs.
The Fright Farm experience changes each year with new theatrical scenes and experiences. In 2011, there was an expanded Frankenstein’s Laboratory as well as an intensely diabolical scene called “The Factory.” Art direction planning begins in January and the set construction starts in August.
The Fright Farm also features a special “Low Scare” matinee for young children (and the faint of heart) on the Sunday prior to Halloween from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. Admission to the low scare haunt is reduced for all ages.
The men and women from the Sheriff’s Office donate their time and talents to make Fright Farm a community event.
