BURRILLVILLE – The latest attraction offering scares to brave visitors from across New England opened in Burrillville this week, providing a new choice for fun this Halloween season.
Haunted Gallows held its grand opening on Friday, Sept. 30, with guests flocking to a 600-acre property on East Ironstone Road for a frightful walk along a “haunted,” trail at Richardson Sawmill and Farm.
Jason Soares, a former manager of Scary Acres, a haunted hay ride and corn field in Hope, has worked with the family that owns massive farm to create the unique seasonal attraction. Old equipment, crumbling structures, discarded vehicles and more from the centuries-old farm set the tone as guests enter for a hike into the woods just miles from another Burrillville property famed for its frights: The Conjuring House.
While photography is not allowed inside the main exhibits – which include “The Dark Fair,” and “Bathsheba’s Woods,” NRI NOW got a sneak peek at the family-friendly pumpkin patch and the property leading into the deep, dark woods. Vendors offering games and food, including the Dinolicious food truck and Not Your Average Popcorn, help to complete the visitor experience.
The attraction will be open every Friday and Saturday night from 6 to 10 p.m. through October, and will also offer hours on Sundays Oct. 9 and 30. To learn more, visit https://hauntedgallows.com/
