there used to be a cheesy storyline at hayrides too...but its slowly fizzled out...now the narrators on the wagons make up their own stuff =)...my fave is one guy says "my friend Barnabus(one of the characters on the trail) was uite the poet...here's one of his poems: Mary had a little lamb, her father shot it dead. Now Mary carries the lamb to school between two slices of bread!"
We have a restored steam locomotive here that gets turned into a "Ghost Train" every Halloween. It's actually pretty fun once you get past the cheesy story line. The haunted hayrides sound like they would be interesting though.
I live in Rochester, NY....here we have a thing called the Haunted Hayrides of Greater Rochester...its a seasonal thing (for halloween, duh lol) but my dad and I have worked there for the past three years. We have had a TOOOON of fun and we even have our own creepy characters there. It's a huge part of my life year-round, so I tend to think about it when it comes to stuff like user names. After all its pretty awesome to really let loose and actually get paid to scare the bajeezus out of people youve never met!
