Cobb’s Haunt (Louisville, KY)
“Get Lost In The Corn”
By Noah Wullkotte: Jollypumpkin@aol.com
In the dark woods of Louisville, Kentucky is Cobb’s Haunt, a creepy cornfield that’s been taken over by creatures of the night. A light up pumpkin sits on the porch of a country shack and orange lights flash on and off to Halloween music. Inside the country shack you’ll find a variety of snacks and unique food items. You can purchase meat, produce, homemade jam, granola, snacks and more. Once you’ve purchased your ticket, you’ll exit the building and walk a short distance before being allowed to enter the haunted cornfield.
Cobb’s Haunt is a very confusing cornfield with many twists, turns and dead ends. The only thing that will keep you company are the sounds of coyotes and monsters that are waiting for you. Stars light up the night sky and you might see a shooting star or two. Ghouls hide behind cornstalks waiting to frighten the next person who crosses their path. You’ll meet some nightmarish characters like a witch who follows you in the cold night or a half man, half human beast who’s ready to feast. Lights flash in different parts of the cornfield and the sound of a chainsaw can be heard off in the distance. It’s coming closer and closer.
Cobb’s Haunt can last anywhere from 25 minutes to well over an hour. There are various characters like a clown who operates a horn and a creepy girl who wants you to hold her baby. We had a fun time, but the acting needs to improve. There were many times where we were followed, but the actor wouldn’t say a word. There should be more props that decorate the cornfield and possibly a couple of scenes if that’s possible. There are too many dead spots where nothing is happening. It’s a well designed cornfield, but it’s a little uneventful at times. Tickets are $15 a piece. This is too high for a haunt of this caliber. Offering a discount coupon would make the haunt more reasonable.
On October 20th, 2012 Cobb’s Haunt will have its all ages event. Pumpkins will be for sale and you’ll be able to carve them and leave the guts. The cornfield will be open to the public for $5 a person. A hayride and petting zoo will also be set up. We had a good time at Cobb’s Haunt. There’s nothing like walking in a cornfield late at night. You never know what you’ll bump into.
