Ayers Tree Farm unveils spooky new attraction (3 photos)

'We spared no expense,' owner says, noting huge indoor barn and spacious property has been transformed into a spooky adventure

Thrill seekers in Simcoe County have another must-see stop on their Haunted Halloween Tour as a new attraction opened this weekend.  

Ayers Tree Farm in Orillia has gone to the ghouls and converted the huge indoor barn on the property into a spooky adventure.

“We spared no expense,” says owner Jeff Ayers. “We wanted to make sure it was a unique experience for everyone coming to check out our haunted barn. At the end, we even pay tribute to our Christmas tree farm, but I don’t want to give too many of the surprises away.” 

When you drive up the laneway the first thing you notice is all the spooky skeletons hanging from the trees and fences, before being greeted by a massive Jason mask on the barn. There isn’t an inch of the farm that isn’t decorated in something scary. 

The haunted barn is open every Friday and Saturday night from now until October 26.  

The doors open at 7 p.m. with the last tour at 10 p.m. It costs $15 per person which includes the haunted barn, parking and afterward you can calm your nerves by a bonfire and enjoy popcorn and refreshments.  

“People love to hang around the fire afterward and talk about what scared them the most,” said Ayers with a smile.

The farm is located at 3695 Fairgrounds Rd. in Severn Township.

“So come on out, if you dare,” said Ayers.
