With Independence Day now over, those who love Halloween are already gearing up for a spooky season. This means putting together costumes, planning decorations, and most importantly, researching the best haunted attractions. Due to lingering concerns about the pandemic, haunted houses were almost non-existent in 2020. Many have made the difficult decision to close for the season, including Miller’s Nightmare Haunted Farm located in Lewisburg. However, the farm will open on October 1 with more scares than ever.
According to Berkley Miller, who manages Miller’s Nightmare, this year will be bigger and completely different.
Miller said, “The whole layout of Miller Manor will be different.” He also said, “We have added another 2,000 square foot indoor structure, The Basement.” He noted that The Basement will add “a whole new element of fear”. In addition to a new layout for the mansion and a new structure, Miller said the infected culture and the demented forest will also be different.
Miller’s Nightmare Haunted Farm got off to a humble start as a fall corn maze with a small Halloween event that took place in late October. However, Miller said, “I wanted to focus only on the Halloween aspect, so Miller’s Nightmare was born.” He went on to say, “We have combined our love for farming, fall and Halloween.” When asked what his favorite part of the haunted attraction was, Miller said, âProbably the atmosphereâ¦ an ecstatic atmosphere.
The mansion, basement, crops, and forest are all filled with actors ready to create the perfect scares as participants tour the area. Miller said they aim to have between 40 and 50 actors / actresses as well as 10-15 other positions such as security, ticket vendors etc. He also said that anyone interested in working at Miller’s Nightmare can now start being placed on the cast. ‘list, “It’s great fun and easy to make money.” To inquire, email [email protected] There is also a contact form on the website at www.millersnightmare.com/contact.

We work all year to build and improve the previous year to try to provide the best October experience you can get. He also said: “… if you like to be afraid, people are welcome to come, eat and sit by the bonfire.”
