Jebediah “Red” Slaughter was excited when he inherited property from his deceased cousin Ezekiel Slaughter. Wanting to create a new name for his family in the town of Eureka, he started building barns, hosting hayrides and planting corn throughout the valley and opening it to the public for all to enjoy. He had a full staff of employees – Red was finally getting rid of the tainted family name.
All was going well until a chemical spill a few miles away poisoned his crops and family reputation again. Without buyers for his crops, Red and his farm slowly slipped into bankruptcy. Believing he could wash the chemical away, Red and his brother Bob began working on a new well to provide them with the necessary water to clean their land.
As they dug, they came across a chest covered in archaic symbols. Foolishly Red and Bob opened the chest, releasing ancient demonic spirits which quickly possessed Red and Bob before taking over the souls of the employees. Possessed by this evil force they butchered every animal and innocent person on the farm before wandering into the corn field… never to be seen again.
Once again, the farm lay abandoned until 2009 when it reopened, mysteriously beckoning those looking for a scare into the corn, never to be seen again. The year is now 2011 and the Fear Farm is open again, bigger then ever! Lose your soul in Red’s Corn Maze Massacre or take a ride on Farmer Bob’s Haunted Hayride in the Haunted Valley of Eureka.
Red’s Corn Maze Massacre is St Louis’s only haunted corn maze and its largest outdoor haunted attraction.
