Can I purchase tickets on line?
Yes, and we highly recommend that you do so you can avoid the Entry Gate lines and go directly to our Will Call window to pick them up when you arrive.
What is the Fast Pass and do you offer one?
Yes, the Fast Pass is similar to what you see at amusement parks which allow patrons to more quickly access rides. Fast Pass holders have their own separate access to all 4 events - one fee covers quick entry to 4 events = best value!!
What is an appropriate age for the Trail of Terror, Slaughter factory, Hades' Hayride?
All the attractions are intended to be very scary and are staffed with actors. It is difficult to recommend an appropriate age for any event: some 10 year olds participate and they love it, while some 13 year olds are escorted off the trail in tears. Parental discretion is advised for all of the attractions. Trail is the most scary by far, then the house, hayride and paintball is fun.
Will any of the actors grab me?
The actors in both haunted houses are trained and professional and have been instructed not to intentionally touch or grab any of the patrons, however, we cannot guarantee they wont accidentally bump or touch you as the environment is purposely dark and disorienting and full of moving and emotional people. We cannot guarantee that accidents will not happen and that you won’t be touched. Enter at your own risk.
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, we accept Visa and Mastercard at ticketing and concessions.
What happens if it rains?
The event will be closed in steady rain or severe storms and we will post that news on our Facebook page, Instagram and weather hotline as soon as we make that determination. If the event of light rain/mist, we will attempt to open or keep open as many attractions as possible. Due to the nature of some of the special effects, some attractions may need to close earlier than others. If the weather is questionable, please call the hotline at 301-260-9004.
Do you have group discounts?
Yes. Groups of 15 to 2,500 should contact email@example.com to learn more about discounts and logistics for a smooth arrival and entry. Groups must make an advanced reservation in order to obtain the discount.
Do you have discounts for children?

Should I be concerned if I have medical conditions?
Enter at your own risk. There are inherent risks associated with participating in the Field of Screams Maryland’s events. These events are intended to be dimly lit and scary. Trails, que lines and pathways will be uneven, slippery and dark, and there are several special effects, including strobe lights, loud noises, flames, vertigo tunnel, claustrophobia tunnels, fog effects and many others that are used throughout the various attractions that could inadvertently cause harm. Participants are REQUIRED to sign a waiver before entering and participating in the Field of Screams Maryland's events. By entering any of the Field of Screams Maryland’s events or compound, you are confirming with us that you have properly completed and signed the waiver, are taking on risks and waiving your rights.
Is the event handicap accessible?

Do you sell food or alcohol?
Food - Yes!! Enjoy making your own s'mores over an open fire, or try our specialty - Deep Fried Twinkies or Oreos! We also offer hamburgers, hot dogs, kettle corn, hot cider, hot chocolate, funnel cakes, and plenty of other treats. Alcohol and drugs are not permitted on site and if you are deemed to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the police or security on site will remove you from the premises.
If I get too scared can I get a refund?
No. The point of participating in the event is to get scared! The Field of Screams Maryland is a fundraising event for the Olney Boys & Girls Community Sports Association.
How is this year's attraction different from past years?
Every year our creative geniuses come up with sick new ideas. Paths have been completely re-routed for the haunted trail and new stations in the haunted house and the hayride to ensure fresh new scares and thrills. You will not be disappointed!
When is the best time to come so we can avoid a long wait?
To avoid the biggest crowds, come in September or early in October, or on a Thursday or Sunday night. If you come on a Friday or Saturday - arrive as early as possible. The closer the dates are to Halloween, the more crowded and longer the lines will be.
Do you have security on-site?
Yes. In addition to the security cameras, the Field of Screams Maryland is staffed with numerous plain clothes police and security personnel.
What should I wear?
The event is indoor but the grounds or parking lots can be slippery, uneven and wet. Long pants and sturdy shoes are highly recommended. Flips flops, opened toed shoes and high heels are a really really bad idea no matter how good they look.
