Extensive development and long-term planning are focused on keeping the spirit of a classical haunted hayride, incorporating modern scares. Last season Demon’s Gate only had seven weeks and a limited budget to build its first-year haunt. This year with a larger budget, longer build time and new tractor-pulled wagon, Demon’s Gate is making giant leaps forward.

While last season we found the attraction to be underwhelming compared to its competitors, over the past year the haunt has undergone significant growth and improvement which has us excited to see what they have planned this year. Extensive development has focused on keeping the spirit of a classical haunted hayride, with custom built set designs and scenes. Demon’s Gate is gritty has an old-school classic horror movie vibe to its design and promises to be a sleeper hit this season.

For those haunt fans who appreciate the “history” of the industry, Demon’s Gate is now home to props and sets of the infamous Lulu’s House of Horrors which closed last season after over twenty years in operation.  The resurrection of this historic attraction within Demon’s Gate is another reason why you should visit this attraction in 2017. Demon’s Gate is focused on growing each season, bringing another quality attraction to Northeast Pennsylvania.
