O’Keefe maze ready to scare

O’Keefe Ranch’s haunted corn maze, Field of Screams, Dante’s Inferno: The Descent, opens Friday.

The event features two new mazes on four acres of land.

“This year, the quality of the production has improved in several areas including lighting, sound, makeup and special effects,” said Glen Taylor, general manager.

“It is technically superior to previous years, with totally different sensory experiences in each maze. They are mazes of choices, mazes within mazes. Pick a door, choose a path, and hope that you don’t become a lost soul. With 30 actors and larger sets this year, there is something around every corner.”

Field of Screams runs for 11 nights in total; Oct. 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, 21, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the mazes are open from 7 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $10 per maze and are available at the door. On Oct. 24, admission to both mazes is just $15. Food vendors are on-site every night.

“This event is not suitable for young children but the alternative is to visit the corn maze during Family Daze in the Corn Maze, Oct. 12 to 13, 14 to 15, 21 to 22 and 28,” said Taylor.
