The Dead End Hayride

28186 Kettle River Blvd N, Wyoming, MN 55092

The Dead End Hayride Logo


In the crisp autumn evenings, something evil descends upon and blankets the otherwise peaceful woods of Pinehaven Farm. We welcome you to venture into the darkness on our hayride wagons. You will witness unspeakable horrors and terrifying scenes! You will be subjected to cryogenic blasts, explosions, and over-the-top pyrotechnics. You will be mauled by horrific creatures and their converts whom have taken refuge in these woods.

Survivors of this journey who wish to delve deeper into the horror will be dropped off at the Sunnyvale Asylum to make their way on foot. Within the asylum, you will meet our expert medical staff who work tirelessly to ease the afflictions of previous guests who seem to have found the experience to be overwhelming and perhaps a bit too much. Provided that you are allowed to exit the asylum, you will pass through the asylum’s garden of souls which is the final resting place of those that the asylum was unable to assist.

As you make your way through the woods you will likely encounter countless characters who have taken refuge within the woods and are taking advantage of the seemingly endless supply of bodies produced by the asylum, or escapees seeking refuge within the concealment of the woods.

You may even come to find that your own sense of reality is slipping away as some of your greatest fears play out in front of you and perhaps even grab, and pull you in to join them.

Provided that you retain your composure and find your way out of the woods, you are welcome to check into the Pinehaven Motor Inn for an undoubtedly well-earned rest. Please be cautious as to whom you associate with during your stay, as the character of our clientele seems to have been slipping lately. During your stay, please do not venture behind the motel since there are some unsavory neighbors in the corn field and abandoned sewer system which we have been trying to have evicted. It has also been reported that some of the terrifying clowns that have been terrorizing our inner cities and wooded areas have established some sort of hive within the cornfield behind the Inn.

We hope that you enjoy your adventure into the Ultimate Horror Experience that is the Dead End Hayride and wish you luck on your journey.
