    Prepare to be petrified! The critically acclaimed haunted corn maze event Feild of Screams returns for its tenth year, delivering an unforgettable experience filled with fear and excitement like never before.

    1- Maze One??: Screaming Game. Enter the nightmarish worlds of your favorite video game horror titles and experience iconic titles like Resident Evil, The Last of Us, Silent Hill, Slender Man and Five Nights at Freddy's. Be careful, because with every step you take in the dark and winding corridors of this maze, virtual horrors come to life.
    2- Maze Two??: Fear Frenzy. Face your deepest fears and phobias, claustrophobia, arachnophobia and more are waiting for you! Can you overcome your fear and break free from the clutches of your inner fear?
    3- The third maze ??️: House of Sin. Embark on a harrowing journey through the House of the Seven Deadly Sins, where each room represents one of humanity's darkest sins. Do you dare to wander into dangerous chambers and face the evil spirits lurking within?
    4- The fourth maze??: Scarecrow’s Revenge. Venture into the eerie world of Scarecrow, a maze of mysterious, motionless, and heartless scarecrows who come to life and hunt their prey with unwavering determination. Will you outsmart the Scarecrow and find your way out, or will you be lost forever in their treacherous realm?
    Feild of Screams: "X" is sure to push the boundaries of fear and excitement, providing an unforgettable experience for all involved. Join us for the scariest celebration of the year, where fear is our specialty and screaming is our anthem.

    Waterfalls in Gros Morne National Park Newfoundland and Labrador Canada 


     


    Waterfalls in Gros Morne National Park Newfoundland and Labrador Canada are a must see tourist attraction when visiting the beautiful East Coast island. Middle Brook Falls is a multi-level cascading waterfall located in the scenic community of Glenburnie and is exceptionally beautiful to view in any season. However, the travel destination is extra special in Autumn when the changing leaves colour the spectacular landscape in breathtaking shades of yellow and orange. Additionally, in the warmer Summer months, the water feature serves as a clear refreshing natural swimming hole for travellers and locals alike. Adventure seekers can venture beyond “third falls”, which is the deepest, and visitors may witness swimmers jumping into the deep pool below from atop of the surrounding rugged cliffs. However, please please stay safe and do not underestimate the power of nature and dangers involved. 


     


    To find the falls take The Viking Trail (highway 430) from Deer Lake towards Wiltondale and take the  Bonne Bay road towards Trout River and Lomond. Look out for the Middle Brook Cottages parking lot where you will find a short trail adjacent to the property leading to the majestic waterfalls. The natural wonder makes a great picnic location as well while visiting Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland and Labrador Canada. Add Middle Brook Falls to your NL travel bucket list! You wont be disappointed!
