The health and safety of everyone is The Dead End Hayride’s top priority, and we continues to follow and monitor current guidance from federal and state health officials. Restrictions regarding large gatherings have recently eased, so at this time, The Dead End Hayride does not anticipate daily attendance limits. Further, at this time, masks will not be required for our guests but are strongly encouraged for those not fully vaccinated.

Proof of vaccination will not be required for guests, staff or vendors. Cleaning and sanitization measures will adhere to federal and state guidelines. Hand sanitizer will be provided at locations throughout the event.

We’re working hard to ensure a healthy and safe environment, so if you’re ready to come experience Minnesota’s Ultimate horror experience this fall season, The Dead End Hayride will be here and ready to welcome you back!
