Covid-19 Information & Safety

Covid-19 Information & Commitment to Safety


Updated:  August 4th 2020

On behalf of CornStalker’s Trail of Terror, we want to first say that this has obviously been an unprecedented year with the pandemic affecting everyone in many ways.  Please know that the safety of our staff and our customers will always be our #1 priority.  We want to share a few things with everyone that we will be implementing with the upcoming Halloween season ahead.   Below are some specific Q & A, as it relates to Covid-19 with the opening of our 5th season of CornStalker’s Trail of Terror.  Updates will be made to this list as we get closer to the fall season.  As always, we are open to any suggestions or ideas for providing a safer & fun experience for everyone.  Stay safe and happy haunting!  Visit us online at or for more information.


How safe will it be in terms of sanitation to ensure my safety while attending the haunt attraction?



There are many things being implemented for the safety of both our staff & guests.  To cover a few, any and all high traffic area with any items that could possibly be touched will be cleaned throughout each night we’re open on a regular 30-minute basis.  While open each night, this mainly pertains to the restroom areas, doors, hand railing of any kind, counters etc.  Before and after each night open, we have a more detailed sanitation protocol in place for deep cleaning of all staff and guests’ areas.  We will have hand sanitation stations and staff throughout the attraction, especially at the gates (check-in) area and after each attraction.  There will also be mandatory facemask wearing at all times while on the property by our haunt staff and all visitor’s, along with the social distancing of 6ft between groups.  Masks will be available for purchase at the gate if needed.  Specific location and markings will keep groups safety apart once inside the gate area when it is time for such group(s) to come inside for their specific time slot entry.  Remember to always keep 6ft distance between groups. 

Mandatory checking of temperatures with our staff each night before entering the property will also be conducted along with other wellness check protocols.  Guests will also be screened before entering the stadium gates with (touchless) temperature checks at the gate and asked if they have recently been sick with a fever and/or other symptoms as it pertains with Covid-19. 



How will you be handing ticket sales this season?



In recent months, we have attended a number of virtual seminars in reference to the best practices for the safety of everyone this coming fall season.  One thing that was decided upon early on was the offering of “Online Timed Ticketing” only this year.  This ensures the control of how many guests are in the attraction area(s) at any given time.  Purchases will be available for groups of (2) people, (3) people, (4) people, (5) people and (6) people only.  We will offer the limited number of ticket (groups) sales online in “30 minute” windows.  For example, guests will select any opening time slot that is available between 7:30pm – 8:00pm, or 8:00pm – 8:30pm and so on until the end time of the attraction each night. Please note, if you are late for your scheduled time window, you will be added on the next time slot as available.  Again, we are not allowing walkup sales via cash or credit card as everything will be done online this season on our website. 



How do we sign the online waiver form and what is this for exactly?



We will have a mandatory waiver form that can be signed right after tickets have been purchased on our website.  It is all digital so much like the ticket itself, there won’t be anything that needs to be printed out.  This waiver form is for entry into our attraction and will specify in part, that all guests enter the attraction at their own risk and they understand that CornStalker’s Trail of Terror and/or Southern Maryland Blue Crabs cannot be held responsible for any injuries while on the property and/or as it pertains to any possible exposure to any illnesses of any kind, including Covid-19. 



How will the cue lines work this season to keep distance between people/groups? 



We will be utilizing a new system called “Virtual Cue Line”.  This system uses GEO fencing when on/near the property and allows each guest or group to “Check-in” on our website from they’re smart phone.  This further allows all guests to choose to sit in their vehicle to wait or get out for fresh air while waiting for a “text page” when it’s your turn to enter the attraction.  Once inside the main gates, tickets will be scanned/redeemed from each guests/group and the specific color-coded wrist band will be issued.  Guests will then proceed to the designed stand-by area where they will continue social distancing between groups while waiting for their turn to enter the attraction.
