One of the highlights of the Mothman Festival is the eerie hayride through the TNT area. The “TNT Area” refers to the old munitions plant where the Mothman was most active. It also encompasses the wildlife reserve that used to be a war-time ammunition holding ground (hence, the little “igloos” spread throughout the property). The hayride starts around 8:00pm on the grounds of the West Virginia Farm Museum that are located just outside the TNT area, adjacent to the Mason County Fairgrounds. Activities such as live music, food, and all-out fun will be in store for those who choose to attend the hayride tours
Tickets will be sold at the Mothman Festival Information kiosk, located at the Mothman Statue beginning on Saturday morning at the kickoff of the festival. Get ready for a trip back into time! The TNT area has been left “as is” and has virtually been unchanged in the 40 years since the events of the Mothman. Be sure to purchase your tickets early, as the hayride is one of the most popular events at the festival, and they are sold out fast.

Note: The hayride is designed for ALL ages. We do not make any claim of being a “thrill ride” or having a ride that is designed to scare or shock. Just have fun and enjoy the ride, you never know what you will see out there!
