Skull silo and hearse. Frightland: Skull Silo

Frightland, a seasonal haunted farm attraction, is dormant for most months. The larger Halloween props are left year-round in Frightland's overgrown field along Rt. 13.

Frightland is a haunted farm attraction on Rte. 13 in Delaware going north before you hit the St. Georges bridge. My parents live next to this thing, and I call it Satan's Tampon. It's a tall white silo with a scary sharp toothed skull on it. They also have a barn with an open mouthed goblin painted over the entrance of the barn.

The funniest thing about this silo is every once in a while they will repaint it at Christmas with a Santa Claus face, but you can see the skull through the santa face, so santa looks kinda evil.
