Welcome to Past Tense After Dark, Lapeer's PREMIER haunted destination. We feature 3 heart pounding haunted attractions, The Hayride of Despair, The Corn Maze of Fear and the House of Horrors. Can you survive all 3? Before, after or while you wait, you can enjoy donuts, ice cream, and snacks at our warm Cider Mill Restaurant on site. (full menu stops at 9pm)

House of Horrors
Your heart pounding, your nightmares come alive and your worst fears become reality! You can’t see what’s next... your eyes betray you, and you suddenly smell the blood and sweat as you cower from the blood curdling screams and terrifying sights…and your senses overload. You can’t run, you can’t hide and you better hope your friends are still behind you. It started over a half century ago, an unspeakable evil took place on Farnsworth Road in Lapeer. The horrors of that evil night were locked away and kept silent. UNTIL NOW! The Farnsworth Hotel is open for blood curdling night stays. You can check out – but you may never escape the terrors that make Past Tense After Dark the most terrifying place you’ll ever want to come back to... again and again. If you survive – Past tense cider & donuts await you at the cider mill next door.

The Corn Maze of Fear
A pleasant field of corn… becomes dangerously unnerving At Past Tense’s AFTER Dark haunted Corn Maze of Fear! What starts out as a fun hike through the corn field, quickly becomes... darker, different, dangerous. Turning, winding, dead-ends and endless loops will confuse, frighten and you. Shadows move, and the silence is broken by the rustling of corn stalks as unknown creatures lurk, waiting for their next victim... Screams ring out as you twist your way through this endless maze cut through the dead, unharvested stalks of corn. Your breath becomes shallow and labored as you move more quickly trying another path…or is it the same one you tried last time? As your pace quickens and your pulse rises… you are tempted to reach for your friends hand... Whatever you do, don’t go it alone! The thoughts that cross your mind here are NOT helping… will you make it out tonight? Will you make it out alive? Do you dare to enter the Corn maze of Fear at Past Tense After Dark?

The Hayride of Despair
After Dark... Things change... After Dark… they take on a more sinister hue... A simple hayride in the country becomes…unsettling, scary. As you wind through the Lapeer countryside in the crisp autumn air, the horrifying reality of events that took place years ago begin to unveil themselves. Every turn reveals horrifying evil, every bump quickens your pulse. The night is alive with sounds, smells and the eerie feeling you can’t escape… that you are NOT safe… you are NOT alone… How far is it to run? Creatures lurk around each corner, howling, screaming, and trying to get you OFF this ride... ONLY invite the friends you trust … this will be the most terrifying fall night you’ll remember…if you survive! Not for children or the faint of heart! The Scare of your life awaits at Past Tense After Dark! Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified A wonderful evening

    First off let me just say that the place was very welcoming and staff were very friendly but they also played their roles extremely well. Hayride: About 10 minutes for the ride. It was relaxing. Not really scary at all. It was relaxing honestly. Maze: Plan at least 90 minutes. As a maze it's a-maze-ing (not sorry) and really hard to get through. After about 90 minutes we had to get help finding the way out. The scares however were few and far between. Most of it was just hyping ourselves up whenever we heard the chainsaw (who was actually really hard to avoid and a lot of fun to run from). Don't wear your nice shoes. Haunted House: Now this was amazing. Not as bad as other houses out there so if you have a child around the age of 11 or so I'd say it's safe to bring them in (but you know your child better than I do) roughly ten to 15 minutes. Overall a fun night.

  • Email Verified Haunted House is the best attraction:

    The hayride wasn’t really scary at all. Pleasant to have a ride but other than a few people in masks jumping out of the corn and a couple really cheesy set ups to drive past it was nothing worth gasping over. The house on the other hand redeemed Past tense, lots of elaborate set ups and “actors” dressed in great costume. The cider mill itself is delicious and adorable!

  • Email Verified Maze had some good scares

    The hayride was fun. It had only light scares. The maze had some good scares. But it was a bit disorienting as well. There were no signs, and more often than not, you’ll end up losing your way. It took us about 20 minutes to get back on track. The haunted house was scary to the core. It had some creepiest characters I’d ever seen. The donuts and cider in the restaurant was awesome. I will come again next year for sure.

  • Good scares and special effects

    This was the most disorienting corn maze I’ve been to. I was with my GF and we did not receive any assistance to get us back on track. There were few scares on the way. But in the rush to find the way out, we did not bother to see some of those. The haunted house was well designed with lots of good scares, props and special effects. The actors all did a great job in scaring us. She screamed few times. Food was awesome too. I will come again for sure.

  • Creepy sets and bone-chilling scares

    I had a great time with my friends. The hayride through the country side was scary. The scares at every turn startled us. The eerie feel around you never leaves you. Sounds and smells builds your insecurity. Few of us screamed when some scare happened out of the blue. The corn maze is vast and confusing. We got lost for more than 40 minutes. The maze had few good jump scares and props. The haunted house was my favourite. It had creepy sets and bone-chilling scares. The food was great too.

  • Scary haunt, recommended

    I and my kids aged 8 and 10 had a great time. The hayride was fun for them. We did not enter the maze as it was a bit confusing and I did not want to go in with the kids. The haunted house was scary. But when the actors saw the kids, they’d toned down their act. The donuts was awesome. Ticket rates were reasonable I thought. Is it kid friendly? Yes! I recommend this place to all.

  • Email Verified Super fun and horror

    Small town haunts can be believed and this one tops the list. The place had literally everything and it is entertainment galore. It was super fun with delicious food, music and horror. Chicken, doughnuts, ice creams and cider were delicious. The place was definitely kids friendly. There were stalls which sell flowers, home accessories and other curios. The best place to spend an evening with your kids. The haunts were reasonably good. The haunt house had nightmarish scenes that were heart racing and blood curdling. The corn maze and hayride were equally fearful. Recommend this to all who love to scared.

  • Email Verified Splendid and thrilling!

    Best way for the perfect family outing. There is something for everybody in the group be it kids, adults or the elderly. You can start with the food or end it in a delicious note. The actors too had happy time chasing and scaring the wits out off us. We had tough time and grasped for breath. It was beyond our control and torso mayhem in the house. The best was yet to come and it was the corn maze. Splendid and thrilling. You get to explore and find a way out with so many winding paths and of course beasts for a company. Superb.

  • Kid-friendly, not for scare junkies

    The place is understaffed, and the maze is mostly empty, the haunted house can be scary for little kids, but nothing over the top, and no more than just jump scares and boos! Great for the price, but nothing extraordinary. They do have some great doughnuts and cider.

  • Thrilling experience

    I surprised myself by screaming so loud. It was truly embarrassing. I am not the one who get scared easily. But alas, I did scream. It was a thrilling experience at the haunts with a few of my friends and even they loved it. Very well organized and beautifully recreated haunt scenes. The actors were smart ones. They knew us the mere mortals so very well. So the scares worked out well to their advantage. The props were used generously and it made us screech. It was surely fun filled and delicious with good food on the offer. Good job.

  • Utterly amazing!!

    Wow…this haunt is the best. Beware the haunted house was full of creepy actors and you dare to enter it. The scare and fun has been 5/5 and lived up to the expectations. The hayride really blowed our minds away. Excellent experience and will definitely be back next year!

  • Stunning experience!

    This place has lots of potential…and it does justice to all the three attractions. Hayride was their masterpiece. Every one of us was in a good, fun mood and enjoyed the most. The corn maze is a huge success – the dead-ends and endless loops confused us and we enjoyed every minute we stayed there. The haunted house is the silver lining. It has some scary scenes, wild sensory rooms and good themed scenes. Will I go there next time.. Yes...can’t wait till the next season!

  • Email Verified Spectacular and Memorable

    We went to Past Tense After Dark with no expectation at all, and was really really surprised by the diverse attractions the haunt offers! Each attraction was outstanding. The corn maze of fear made us scream the most and we ran for our lives…lol! The hayride was fantastic and we wanted to have one more round.
