The Headless Horseman frightens Conner Prairie visitors taking a hayride last year. The Horseman returns for his 34th year beginning Oct. 12.

The Times


FISHERS - The Headless Horseman rides again at Conner Prairie for 11 straight nights in October.

Sponsored by Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincent. Headless Horseman runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 12-15, 19-22 and 26-29.

Presale tickets will be on sale through Oct. 11, and are $13 for Thursday and Sunday tickets and $17 for Friday and Saturday tickets. General admission tickets are available for purchase Oct. 12-29 and are $17 for Thursday and Sunday tickets and $21 for Friday and Saturday tickets. Advance sale tickets are available online at connerprairie.org and by calling Guest Services at (317) 776-6000.

New this year is a 7-acre, 300,000-square-foot corn maze, located on the prairie behind the amphitheater where Symphony on the Prairie is held. Guests can try their way through a large section, which should take about an hour, or a small section, which should take about 30 minutes to navigate. The maze will be open each night of the festival and is a free attraction for Headless Horseman attendees.

The 34th year of Headless Horseman will again see Conner Prairie transform into Conner Scairie, a haunted land inhabited by fun-loving ghouls.

The highlight of the festival again this year will be haunted hayrides through the darkness in a land terrorized by the Headless Horseman. The hayride paths have been extended to improve the overall guest experience; rides will transverse a different path than years before and they'll be longer. A barrel-train ride will also be an attraction for younger children.

Guests of all ages are encouraged to attend in family friendly Halloween costumes. Each night, a live storytelling version of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" will be performed by Indianapolis actor Ty Stover. Magic shows, spooky storytelling around a bonfire, face painting, fortune telling, music and more are offered each night.

The Apple Store at Conner Prairie has extended hours each night of Headless Horseman. The store will serve up its popular gourmet caramel apples plus apple cider slushies, fresh popcorn, rice crispy treats and more until 9 p.m. each night.

And Headless Horseman guests can take in the fall sights and Conner Scairie from above as the 1859 Balloon Voyage experience will be open each night, weather permitting.

Conner Prairie members can take advantage of a host of Headless Horseman perks, including free admission and an Express Pass to ride the hayride. For a list of perks, visit http://bit.ly/2uvsxWa. Guests may sign up to become a Conner Prairie member at the entrance of Headless Horseman.
