In a story aired on WIVB-TV Becker Farms said instead of the October Hayride, visitors can stay in their vehicles and take part in The Haunted Forest.

The Haunted Forest will be a drive through the Becker Farms forest after dark where participants “be witness to a variety of strange happenings and eerie encounters that spark the Halloween spirit.”

“The drive-thru is an exciting new experience that will be just as good or better than our
traditional hayride,” Hospitality Director Amanda Vizcarra says. “Having enclosed vehicles has really allowed us to be creative and is a great way to enjoy the Halloween season while social distancing.”

The Haunted Forest will begin operation October 16 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and run on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through October 31.

While Becker Farms after dark has no admission fee, tickets for The Haunted Forest are $40 per car.

Another feature that may be attractive at Beker Farms is their catered bonfires for 10 to 15 people which are $275 on Fridays and Saturdays and $225 on Sundays.

Becker Farms is located at 3724 Quaker Rd. Gasport, NY 14067 (716) 772-2211
