Is this suitable for young kids?

You will have to be the judge of whether your child will be too scared or not. Some 8 year olds have a great time while some 38 year olds cry for their mommy. Our policy is that we don’t recommend the Bates Motel for children under 8 years old, but our Haunted Hayride is OK for the kids. We offer an alternative non scary daytime event for children under the age of 12 and adults who are young at heart. The Harvest Hayride is open weekends from 10am to 5 pm and offers lots of fun activities for the younger kids.
