Frequently Asked Questions

What is Field of Screams?

Field of Screams with Clown Town is an outdoor haunted attraction. You will walk through buildings and a large sorghum field with a group of 6-8 people. You will encounter live actors and many special effects. The walk through the Field will take approximately 30 minutes.

What is the Escape Shack?

The Escape Shack is a 15-minute escape game in which participants find clues and solve puzzles in order to unlock the door of the shack to escape. While many escape games are twice as long we have specifically created this game to run for a shorter time frame so more patrons can partake in this challenging game before or after the Field of Screams. There are two different themed Escape Shacks available. Tickets will be sold on-site on a first-come first-served basis. To pre-arrange your group, call or e-mail a few days ahead of your arrival.

How can I get tickets?

ALL available tickets will be made available online. There will not be any onsite ticket sales for Field of Screams. When you purchase online, you are purchasing a ticket with a specific arrival time. It is important to arrive at your ticket time.

Can I go through in a wheelchair?

Because the field is uneven and often wet, it is inaccessible by wheelchair at this time.

How scary is it?

The Field is intended to scare you. Some as young as 8 do not scare easily yet many 16 year olds are unable to make it through.

Can I get out if I am too scared?

We do not encourage leaving the field early, however, if you are absolutely unable to go on, our actors are trained to handle the situation.

Can I bring my kids?

We do not recommend the Field for young children. If your children are younger than 8, please reconsider purchasing tickets. Please be aware that the queue lines will have character actors that are also scary for young children.

How long does it take?

Field of Screams averages a 35 to 40 minute walk. Plan 30 minutes before and after your walk for transportation to and from the field and to and from the parking lots. Arrive with your printed or downloaded ticket in hand, and expect to be at Prairie Pines for 1-2 hours.

How can I avoid long lines?

Some lines are inevitable. In recent years, we have made changes to greatly reduce the very long lines. In  order to make the process smooth,  please arrive at your scheduled time.  Expect approximately 30 minutes to park, get checked in, and take the trailer ride to the fields. We will aim to send you through the Field entrance within the next 30 minutes and you can expect the haunted walk to take you 35-40 minutes once you have entered the attraction. Allow another 30 minutes to load on the trailer ride and get back to your car. We do have concessions with fresh donuts, snacks, drinks, and Dippin Dots. We have a shop with shirts, hats, and your personalized photos. We also have our Escape Shack experience available at the queue lines. Any of these things will take you some additional time.

What Forms of Payment do you accept?

All major credit and debit cards are accepted for online sales. Cash or card payment will be accepted for any onsite sales of concessions, shop items, or Escape Shacks,

Do we wait indoors or out?

Can I get a refund if I get tired of waiting?
