From the terror of a haunted house to the relative calmness of a corn maze, the Halloween spirit is alive in the region.
Hauntings at Huston’s Haunted Hollow at Huston’s Hickory Hollow Campground, Route 281, Rockwood, will be held from dusk to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 31.
The hollow is billed as a high startle, interactive experience using strobe lights and artificial fog. Customers participate at their own risk.
It is not recommended for children younger than 7 or those with medical conditions.
There also will be 30-minute Hayrides of Horror that venture into the Evil Forest.
The cost is $13 for adults and $11 for children ages 10 and younger and group discounts.
Fright Nights at Kennywood Park are so frightening, it is recommended that those ages 13 and younger stay away.
Ghostly and ghastly spirits will take over the amusement park from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 31.
A special haunting will be held from 7 to 11 p.m. Sunday.
Those who dare can visit Mortem Manor, Villa of the Vampires, Captain Skully’s Curse in 3-D, Voo-doo Bayou, Kennyville Cemetery, Gory Park and Ghostwood Estate.
Spirits have taken over the rides, too, including the Exterminator and Phantom’s Revenge.
Tickets are $25.98 at the park or $22.98 at participating Giant Eagle locations.
Ghosts & Goblins Tours at Lincoln Caverns near Huntington will combine the good and evil of the season Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 31, beginning this week.
Family-friendly tours will be offered from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, while haunted, scary adventures will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
