Roca Scary Farm opens 20th season on Friday

"We've revamped all our night time stuff," said Roca Berry Farm co-owner Josh Schaefer. 

ROCA, Neb. (KLKN) — Spooky season officially arrives in Lincoln Friday night as Roca Scary Farm makes its 2022 debut. The staff says this year will be spookier than ever as it begins its 20th season haunting Nebraskans.

“We’ve revamped all our night time stuff,” said Roca Berry Farm co-owner Josh Schaefer. 

And why wouldn’t they? 

The farm is reintroducing it’s tree house slides in the “Pyscopath” trail along with a heightened haunted hay ride. The haunted mansion, a farm staple, is also getting a new look.

Roca Berry Farm is also welcoming back a number of staff this year, some even making the trek from California just to scare you.  

“You get at least one part of the family that moves from Nebraska and then they pull in their friends and previous family members to come in and help us,” Schaefer said.

Not bad for an idea Josh’s dad had 20 years ago, something to make the Roca Berry Farm experience a bit more thrilling for all ages.

“Kids that are 12 that love all the scary movies, and also senior citizens who are also into the Halloween season,” Schaefer said. 

Roca Scary Farm is live Friday at 5:00 p.m. and it will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights now through October. If you’re 16 or younger, you need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
