Marana is going to have a great time: Terror in the Corn is now open at the intersection of Tangerine Road and I-10 at exit 240.
Terror In the Corn is a locally organized and managed event that has brought spooky entertainment to Southern Arizona for 10 years. Each Terror Ticket grants access to three unique haunted themed areas with excellent visuals and live actors. The themes change every few years to ensure that no two Terror in the Corn events are the same twice.
This year’s haunted attractions are the Circus of Horror, Shady Acres Asylum, and the Field of Screams.
General admission also includes the Midway area which has a DJ with live music, food vendors, beer garden, and pumpkins available for purchase. Additionally, for an additional fee, participants can play Zombie Paintball and explore the Escape Room.
The escape room gives participants a short window of time to escape the spooky school bus before the serial killer strikes again. Zombie Paintball features 18 field mounted paintball guns with both fixed targets and live actors.
Clint and Laura Buckelew own and operate Terror in the Corn. Previously, they hosted the event at their family farm at Three Points. Although the event was a success, two years ago the event was moved to a location closer to Tucson to make it easier for people to participate.
“It all started when I was in college,” said Clint Buckelew. “The funny thing is, I generally don’t like scary events. It’s a little different when you’re running it. It all started as a side activity and here we are now 10 years later and it is still something that many students enjoy.
Terror In the Corn has a team of 150-200 people who bring this spooky attraction to life. Many of them are actors, with around 75 percent of them returning each year. Buckelew is happy that this event is being organized by the local community for the local community.
“It’s great to have something that people come back to year after year to create,” Buckelew said. “People really enjoy being a part of Terror In the Corn. We couldn’t do this without everyone getting together.
The Terror In the Corn event isn’t the only attraction brought to Tucson by Buckelew Farm. They also sell Christmas trees during the holiday season.
