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!
Daytimes on Saturday and Sundays September 23 - October 29 enjoy a family friendly Fall Festival at our pavilion by the Cider Mill with free musical entertainment, fun hay rides, pumpkin picking, cider, donuts, low-cost children's activities and games including bounce-house, face painting and old-time children's carnival games and of course folks love shopping at the Country store and Arts and Antiques buildings as well as dining on a full menu of home-cooked style meals at the restaurant in the Cider Mill.

Review This Haunt
  • Totally worth it

    Hands down the best haunted house in MI! It had scare inducing interiors, props, and special effects that had freaked us out. We lost our way few times and each time, we were scared out of our wits by some scare character. Absolutely loved it! Totally worth it.

  • Email Verified Scary sets and good fun factor

    Great haunt with the right amount of scares, scary sets and great fun moments to remember. The haunted house was small, but they had utilized the space effectively.

  • Email Verified Unexpected surprises

    Freakin amazing. It was a bang on full of unexpected surprises and décor was tremendous replicating the true idea of a century old haunted house. Lots of fun for small children as well as adults! Suggest going with a group of people.

  • House was creepy...

    One of the best haunted houses I have been to. The house of horror was creepy awesome. My wife jumped and screamed few times.It had the perfect scare level I felt. The corn maze was pretty disorienting.Not too pricey given the scare experience offered. I would certainly recommend this to everyone.

  • So scary!

    Yeah, it's good. The maze and house were interesting but the hayride lags behind in fun. The house was well planned with every possible haunting feature attached. The performers do their job very well. Apart from the haunting attractions, the place houses gift shops and food stalls, it adds to the richness of the place. Great place if you're looking a great outing. The house will scare you the most. I met some people who were actually visiting the second time and they approved of the changes and a totally different experience.

  • Confusing maze...

    My daughter and her friend had a great time. The girls liked the hayride. The maze was confusing and would drive you crazy. The haunted house had some decent scares and fun moments to remember. Actors all did a great job. Definitely, recommend this place.

  • Email Verified Never felt bored

    I and my BF visited the attractions, and they were better than last year’s. I’d never felt bored as they’d changed everything and introduced fresh themes, and scares. The corn maze of horror had winding and misleading paths, hidden props and actors in creepy makeup trying to scare the daylight out of you.Overall, the haunt was worth the time and money. I will come again.

  • No regrets..

    First time there this year! Super fun! Past Tense After Dark was actually spooky and the actors got us a couple times! The sets were insane. It is not over the top terror so don't worry! Go and check them out you will not regret it

  • 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.

  • Had a fantastic haunting night...

    I along with my two friends visited this place last weekend and we had a blast! We got the tickets from the booth and spent an hour to get into attraction. Loved the animatronics and background sound play backed with scintillating design works on the wall to push the fear factor to next level. To all haunted freaks, this place is worth a visit!!

  • Best choice for Halloween

    This haunted house was probably the best one for Halloween scary fun! Scares were phenomenal and the scenes are great. Visited with my college mate and we enjoyed every moment of it. Few of the props and jump scares were spot-on. We had lots of scream and tons of fun.

  • So much nerve-wracking moments

    The house of horror had some nerve-wracking moments to note. Great sets with attention to details and properly executed scares. Couple of instances startled me to the core to be honest. The hayride was OK, if not great. Everything about this place is awesome.
