Evidence of Evil returns to Lyman Orchards in Middlefield next week

MIDDLEFIELD – Halloween is right around the corner, and Lyman Orchards is getting ready for the return of Evidence of Evil, an interactive haunted attraction.

“You will not be walking through our show like a typical haunted house,” Evidence of Evil owner Dave Belas said. “You will be asked to participate in scenes, ranging from chanting along with actors, moving objects, or finding a key element to move onto the next scene.”

The attraction is rated PG-13, and four new areas have been added this year – The Harvest, Toxic Waste, PANIC, and one more area which will be announced in the coming days.

Belas said some may find Evidence of Evil to be physically demanding, as guests may need to crawl. He says to be prepared for anything, but to remember that nothing will harm or touch you inside the attraction.

“We are an outdoor attraction in the woods with exposure to the elements,” the Evidence of Evil website says. “You may encounter uneven terrain and some may find the environment physically demanding. Please plan and dress accordingly.”

If the experience gets too spooky, guests can exit early and will be escorted from the attraction.

"We're excited to add this new attraction to our October lineup," Lyman Orchards Executive Vice President John Lyman said last year when Evidence of Evil made its debut at the orchard. "This promises to be an unforgettable experience.”

Evidence of Evil, located on South Street, will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from dusk to 10 p.m., Sept. 30 through Nov. 6.

Tickets are $25 and are sold online only at evidenceofevil.net.
