Headless Horseman

Headless Horseman

October 9-11, 15-18, 22-25

Gates open 6-9 pm

Activities and hayrides may run past 10 pm

Bring the family to Conner Scairie, a haunted land inhabited by fun-loving ghouls all vying for your vote to be elected mayor after their former leader, Lord Moldywart, accidentally turned himself into a cute, fuzzy bunny with an errant spell. Meet Beautisha, the cosmetics-loving witch, as she conjures up magical beauty tips with the audience. Join wanna-be stand-up comedian and resident expert in all things pertaining to the underworld, Dr. Acula, on his new game show, ‘Monster Mayhem.’ Be amazed as Ed, the mad scientist, and his assistant, Esmeralda, serve up some chemistry hijinks in their new show, ‘Ed’s Incredible Chemicals.’ Join child-like monster Holly Ween as she entertains the younger guests with stories of magic. For those daring enough, come face-to-face with the menacing Headless Horseman himself on the haunted hayride. Other family activities include The Legend of Sleepy Hollow marionette show, ghostly vortexes, fortune telling, scary-o-ke and more.


Make history. During your visit to Headless Horseman, visit the craft area and help Conner Prairie get into the Guinness Book of World Records by helping ghouls fold 6,000 origami bats.
