BEST HAUNTED FRIGHTS - BOOKMARK THESE ON YOUR YELP MOBILE APP!
Springboro Haunted Hayride & Black Bog (Springboro)
- If you are looking for a haunted attraction for the entire family
- the Springboro Haunted Hayride and Bog are a must on your list.
- The Springboro Haunted Hayride, is actually a hayride. As you descend into the forest and cornfield, nothing looks too out of the ordinary say for the very creepy looking scarecrows. That is until you realize that there's more coming at you from the corn fields. The Black Bog was included in the combo ticket and was more of your walking trail type.
- Yelper Tip: Lines can run long on busy nights, so arrive early and be sure to dress appropriately, it is an outdoor scare.

- The attraction itself - Absolutely amazing. Animatronics, pyrotechnics, scareactors, fire, water, fog, lighting...you name it, this place had it.
