Absolutely loved this! I saw plenty of haunted houses from Field of Screams to Kims Krypt to Pennhurst Asylum. Each have their great qualities! Bates Motel has ...the most unique animatronics around. The hayride was awesome and the actors weren't afraid to get in your face. The corn maze was awesome, especially if your a straggler and don't know whats about to come at you. Even if you see the actors before they scare you, they still do an awesome job scaring you even then! Bates motel had 2 unique rooms i have never seen done well before. The library room and the greenhouse were unique and impressive in my eyes! I wish I was more into the bates TV series to appreciate this better. Went on a Friday weekend before Halloween, the lines went the smoothest i have ever seen (yes there were groups spread apart and not one massive conga line through). I hope they grow into 4 attractions soon! See More

I am writing this review because I had a really bad experience there on Saturday! I have been going to Bates Motel for YEARS and this year i was very disappoin...ted. I purchased tickets to go to the Bates Motel part and stood in line for about 30 minutes or so. They did not leave ANY space between groups of people, so it was a continuous line of people going through the house. Due to this oversight, I did not get scared once, because we kept seeing the actors walking back to their hiding spots. Usually, they leave a couple seconds between groups to avoid this issue, but this year they rushed us through. I hope that they see my review and make some changes, because I will not be coming back with my friends for years to come unless this issue is addressed. See More

So we didn't get to experience the hayride or the corn walk/maze, but we got to go through Bates Motel itself. I can tell you they do a wonderful job!! Very cre...epy and some great hiding places for the actors made for a good "jump" here and there. I really wish we got to the other two attractions, but so glad we went. Since my friend was "reluctant" to go back a second time (we decided that once wasn't enough for that long drive), I got the chance to do something I always wanted to do.... go through it alone!! That was definitely more creepy and unnerving, especially when you can't see through thick fog. The actors were wonderful and the props were unique. I highly recommend this one as one of the top haunted attractions I've been to. Two skeleton thumbs up! :-) See More

We went on a busy Saturday! We had a great time. My only complaint was that they were letting so many of us in the house and corn maze at one time there was no ...time for the actors to "reset" without us seeing them. There were also portions where we were just standing in hallways of the house stopped because the line of people was so long and people up ahead must've been stopping. Otherwise, it was great. Amazing props, the actors looked phenomenal, and we had fun! Maybe there should be a cap on the number of people that can attend in one night so that doesn't happen. I know it's a better idea to go on a weeknight, but people who live far away don't have that luxury. See More

I feel like I was at a totally different place based on all these 5 star reviews. Not once did I get scared tonight & the reason I did not get scared was becaus...e you let people continuously flow through each attraction one after the other! Takes notes from other haunted places, you should put small groups in at a time, Not everyone all at once...No haunted attraction I've been to has ever done that....idk if you just wanna get people in or out as fast as possible or what, but that NEEDS to be fixed. Also you shouldn't shove as many people as possible into one hayride. Had people all throughout the middle so you were squished & uncomfortable & that could've been space for actors to jump onto the ride and get in your face and really scare people. See More

My first time there. Very impressive with the props and special effects. Only complaint is they send people in too close together in the house and trail. There... are so little amount of times you actually get scared or surprised because others not in your group are bunched up together. The tickets are quite costly so they really should work on this so people feel like they get their money's worth. See More

This place was awesome the motel was so scary not to mention the actors were awesome but the best was the hayride the characters jumped on the wagon and interacted so I truly recommend this place so worth the money!!!!

Oh my gosh, this was such a great haunt! We went right before it closed and we basically skipped the wait in long lines due it being so late. All I can say was ...WOW! The amount of actors in this haunt was absolutely crazy. I'm pretty sure there were over 150 actors and all gave their hardest. I got scared so many times. I love how well they interacted with us too, even on the hayride they were jumping up on it and they even grabbed us as we walked though the haunt. I absolutely loved this. Great job to everyone involved! I'd love to come back sometime.

PS: That haunted Hayride was KILLER! Haha, get my pun! ;)

Went there this past Saturday with my girlfriend and our kids...as we were ready to board the wagon....omg it was packed with no room to sit. Asked the guy if... we could wait for the next ride due to it being no where to sit..He said no..plenty of room for the 4 of you. Worst experience ever..We won't be going back there again! See More

For an attraction that has been around for 25 years, it was pretty dull. The hayride was mainly visuals. It wasn't scary at all due to lack of (scary) actors. T...he Bates Motel had its moments, as well, but very few. The cornfield was rushed, groups were too close together so we weren't able to get scared. The only scary thing about this place was how much money we wasted for nothing. I'm not coming back anytime soon, that's for sure. See More

We had a blast. Purchasing the tickets online made everything easier as opposed to waiting in line for the attractions. Definitely worth purchasing the deal package to enjoy everything at a better cost. The props and actors were great especially on the hayride. Will definitely come again.

Hayride is good (20 minute ride) same as last year. The Corn Maze is good as usual but the Haunted House is the best part. However the food and drinks are pricy. My daughter and I both got a hot dog and fries and both items were like luke warm at best which made us feel bleh.

A trip to The Bates Motel is one of my favorite Halloween traditions! All three attractions are fun, but the Hayride is definitely the best. I love that the set...s and themes change year to year. I also like that tickets purchased online can be scanned right from my phone, no printing required. See More

Honestly.. I have been coming to Bates for a long time. I love it, and I feel it's the best around.. but I feel that parts have been better in the past than the...y are now. For instance clown section inside corn maze... used to have music, spinning walkthru over bridge etc... was much scarier.. with the clown hype it should have been over the top in my opinion. Also, seems like sets need to change a little bit, all the same types of sets, hicks, slaughterhouse, psychwards... in each attraction. See More

I wouldnt drive too far to see this attraction. Actors were pretty good, but it was more funny than scary...and they over did it on the hayride. There was just no suspense with people jumping out from everywhere every second of the ride.

This is by far the #1 haunted attraction in Pennsylvania. We tried a lot of the recommended haunted attractions and this was by far the best. All three of the a...ttractions are so well thought out, planned, and acted to the last detail. YOU WILL BE SCARED! There's so much packed into the Hayride, you could do it 3 or more times and find new things every time. Unlike the other hayrides, you won't feel like you're missing most of the action because you're on the wrong side. There is no wrong side. Actually, we recommend that the Bates Motel offer a two-hayride ticket so you can stay on and switch sides to see both. The Haunted House and Haunted Corn Maze have incredible acting - one surprise after another and I promise you won`t know when or where it’s coming from. We kept having to dodge the screaming, running people. The Bates Motel offers the most actors, amazing costumes, superior make-up and awesome props. You will have a GREAT TIME! See More

It wasn't as scary as everybody hyped it up to be!!! The hayride was fun but nothing scary at all!!! Everything else was corny to me. It's more for people who are very easily scared! Not for the die hard scare seeker!
