<strong>Headless Horseman Hayrides and Haunted Houses - Ulster Park, NY </strong><br/><br/>The headless horseman rode near here more than 200 years ago, and you'll see a repeat at <a href="http://www.headlesshorseman.com/">this Hudson Valley experience</a>. You'll start out with a one mile haunted hay ride, populated by real and animatronic spooks. At the end? The first of six haunted houses, including the Lunar Motel, Glutton's Diner, Slithers Pet Shop, the Blood Inn and Nightshade Greenhouse, plus a labyrinth style haunted corn maze. If the live chainsaw in one of the houses isn't enough to scare you, look out for the clowns.<br/><br/> Part of the fun here is reading the stories behind each haunted house, which you can do online before you go. Those waiting for the hayride or finished with the haunted circuit can still have fun watching the illusion and other side shows, or shopping and eating on site.
