Review This Haunt
  • Mine is worth a visit

    It is our family favorite and we always love to spend a quality time here. There are always changes each time and we love the fresh ideas. It is never boring or predictable. The actors were imaginative and caught us unaware. The mine is worth a visit and I loved the headless horseman. He was relentless and never backed off. There were too many scary creatures to tackle. The finale in the wagon ride was exciting. Bumpy and scary we reached the exit, honestly we had the best moments and it will last forever.

  • Email Verified The best Haunt in Indiana

    You won't find a better haunt around! The Haunting at Shireman Homestead is located in Columbus Indiana and is well worth the drive to see. You'll encounter so many scary creatures of the night that you won't know what to do!!

  • Email Verified Great Experience just 1 issue overall

    Our group had an awesome experience and it was so much fun. However, the guy at the end is very rude. He could have been more polite when telling people to stay back behind the steps. Perhaps maybe have a sign to let people know to stay back instead of passing the steps and the guy at the end gets hateful if you pass it. It kind of ruined a few peoples night and made us feel awkward since he was so rude. We were having a great time before that happened and then it just kind of bummed everyone. No one likes being treated like that when we are just having fun. It could have been explained in a nicer way instead of basically getting aggravated and raising his voice.

  • Email Verified Mind blowing experience

    We had fun time at shireman. It really wasn’t the regular haunts we had visited before.The haunted trail into the woods is nothing but a scary trip into the land of unknown. My friends and I had a blast at the maze. There were more twists than expected and each had a challenging task of facing the ghost. It was all planned well. We came out of the maze to be in a graveyard and that was frightfully silent. The crew pulled it out so well with the best use of visual and audio effects. It was mind blowing and we will pay another visit.

  • Email Verified Shireman Homestead Excellent Choice for Halloween

    It was my first haunt and loved the experience. It was a blast with friends. Loved the maze and the trail. Got excited walking in the thick woods. It was like having a real haunting moment with actual ghosts. The sounds were realistic and got startled a few times. The maze was amazing. Its winding paths with scares from nowhere will take you by surprise. The animatronics will take your breath and creates the right ambience. The mine was a long walk with horses and horsemen for company. Hayride was enjoyable, it got me screaming and laughing. Loved it, will be a regular.

  • Tons of props and scares

    Shireman was a wonderful experience. Went with my BF and we had a blast. The trail was pretty long and had lots of props and scares. There were also jump scares, few of which actually caught me by surprise. It is a real outside trail, so be careful not to trip over roots. The graveyard was freaking scary. The mine was pitch dark and I screamed at almost all the scares. The headless horseman freaked me out, and we eventually ran to the bridge. The hot chocolate on our way out was awesome. I recommend this place to everyone out there.

  • Email Verified Great place!

    This will be our third year going to the Shireman Homestead and it is fantastic. I can't believe all the hard work they put into this each year. It is a long walk through the woods and every twist and turn is scarier than before. The headless horseman rides right up to you too and it makes a great touch. We take our 2 young children (7,9) they are scared but they hold onto dad. It is a scary trail, even for adults, and we will keep coming back as long as they are open. Good work Shireman! Great farm and woods and production!

  • Freaking scary

    We go every year and Shireman never disappointed. Our five year old kid liked the haunt very much. He wanted to see zombies and that was a great experience for him. The woods had creative sets and awesome scares. It is also family friendly. My wife is usually scared to do such things seems to have enjoyed it to the hilt. On our way back, she can’t stop talking about the scares and actors. The mine and mine camp was freaking scary to say the least. The ghostly bride on the horse was my favourite. Entry fee was reasonable for the experience. I will come again.

  • Wonderful experience.

    I and friends drove for 2 hours to reach the haunt. We liked it. The ghouls, ghosts and zombies scared the crap out of us. The trail had many jump scares, and it was fun watching our friends jumping and screaming. As the bogey man chased us, couple of us tripped over the roots. But it was great fun. The mine and mine camp also had some nice scares. The set design was realistic. I thought the ticket rates were reasonable. Staff was friendly throughout. Food was great too. I will return. Shireman was a wonderful experience.

  • Email Verified Creepy and realistic set

    Great entertainment and lots of scary fun. I and my nephews visited Shireman Homestead and the kids loved the haunt. The wooden trail had some great scares, props and creepy zombies and ghouls baying for human blood. Couple of times, the boys screamed out loud. The set design was creepy and realistic. Graveyard and the mines freaked us out. It was dark and you can’t anticipate the scares. The headless horseman/woman scared the daylight out of us. We three ran and never stopped till reaching the bridge. Entry fee was not expensive. The snacks were nice too. I would recommend this place.
