This Terrifying Farm Just Might Be The Scariest Place In All Of Delaware
Year round, travelers pass through Middletown, Delaware and observe a creepy white silo with a spooky face staring back at them. In September, October and November, the creepy silo’s beady eyes signal the seasonal opening of Frightland, a haunted “scream park” that has been scaring those brave enough to walk its grounds for 20 years. The story of Frightland follows the life of Dr. Thaddeus Idalia, a doctor who went insane when he found his daughter hanging from the rafters of his barn. Read below about how the psychotic Doctor turned a once-thriving farm into the creepiest attraction in Delaware.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Frightland is located directly on Route 13 in Middletown, Delaware, and it is open now for the year until early November. You can find specific hours and dates on their calendar for the dates and times they are open for the season. Not everything done on the farm is to frighten, though – a portion of ticket proceeds, and all of the of parking proceeds, go to benefit Leukemia Research Foundation of Delaware.
