We took our grandkids to Saunders Farm on Thanksgiving weekend and had a blast! Three generations enjoyed a sunny day and all the attractions that we could fit in with a 5 and 3 year-old stopping at every fun spot. The kids' barn, the hay ride, the slide at witch mountain, the stage show , the bouncing things ( like... More

I went on a rainy Saturday, and the place was still packed. There was lots of stuff to do in the daytime for the kids and once it got dark, some other attractions opened up for the adults. Lots of fun, would definitely go back

It was our first year going. Tickets were $35 each for four attractions. We waited in line for an hour for the wagon ride. It lasted 5minutes. The scariest part was when the driver sped up. The Camp of shambles was an hour wait. Definitely not worth the wait. It was just a walk through the orchard. The barn of... More

Wow, Saunders is so fun! We went for their Halloween festivities and it was great. The lines are long but they move quickly, and the attractions are wonderful. We went as a couple, but it's great for people of all ages and all types of families. The admission price is steep but well worth it.

This is the second year in a row that we drove in from Montreal for the Halloween haunt since sadly, there are no places that offer haunts in Montreal except for La Ronde, which is too franco, full of smokers and very expensive. Last year's Saunders Farm haunt was okay, they only had 3 night haunts but they were not... More

At a whopping $35/person for evening Fright Fest admission you are getting very little bang for your buck. Save your money and opt for just admission without the haunts; the farm itself is picturesque and you can grab a treat while taking in some fresh air. The attractions are a laugh. My group spent 25 minutes in line for their... More

Very expensive, but great for children. Although, most of the attractions are open extremely late so it wouldn't be unreasonable to make some of the attractions a little more suitable for older audiences which from what I witnessed when I went, was a very large portion of customers going. The events were not scary and I am an easily scared... More

Wow, it sure has grown! Really enjoyed the Cedar Maze. Make sure to take pictures of the finger boards as there are no markers. They match up with a board outside the shop/exit. The kids sure enjoyed it. Buy tickets online to get a discount! Get lost in the mazes and have fun!

The facility itself was clean and nice. But for a family of 5 be prepared to pay $200 for the day, that's a lot for a family outing! It states right on site that no outside food is allowed so we didn't bring any (which would have saved us $50) and it turns out there was lots of families that... More

Went to Saunders Farm last night and it was a huge disappointment. I went 5 years ago and it was just as bad, but I thought that maybe with having five different attractions this year that it hopefully got better. One of the fright sites called the Graveyard was the worst out of all of them. It was a small... More
