Troops prepare for an alien invasion during Field of Screams: The Harvest at O’Keefe Ranch Oct. 22

Field of Screams will have you running for cover

O'Keefe Ranch opens its corn mazes for a terrifying alien invasion in Field of Screams: The Harvest.

O’Keefe Ranch is at it again and this time it’s under attack from another world.

Rest assured that with the military and special ops on site, Field of Screams: The Harvest is sure to be another huge success and scare fest.

“Halloween is my favourite time of year and the challenge of creating an event that is supposed to scare a mass amount of people for seven nights straight is a challenge I don’t take lightly,” said creative director Matt Brown.

“I want this to be truly terrifying. I’m pretty sure that we’ll hit that. The audience and their screams will be indicative of that theory.”

This year’s concept of an alien invasion came at the beginning of 2015 when the design team started working on ideas.

O’Keefe and the Field of Screams team enlisted professionals from the film industry to help make the concept a reality.

“By adding more calibre to our creative team, we added quite a bit more calibre to the event itself,” said Brown.

Last year’s model of two corn mazes is also being repeated this year. Both mazes are different, but follow the same alien idea.

“Last year, we were able to have more people go through the event simultaneously and have less wait in the lineups while offering people not only door one or door two, but also the chance to try both with completely different experiences from each door,” said Glen Taylor, ranch manager.

“This year, we’ve added some neat surprises that I think our patrons will be blown away by.”

Field of Screams: The Harvest runs at O’Keefe Ranch Oct. 22, 23, 24, 27, 28, 29 and 30. Tickets are available at the door and are $10.  The lineup starts at 6 p.m.
