There are so many classic autumn activities: carving pumpkins, raking piles of leaves for the kids to play in, and picking apples from your local orchard for cider. But as the weather is cooling down, fall fun is heating up. Why opt for the ordinary when you can have the screamingly good. For those who are brave of heart, dare to be scared by Fright Night at Glade Springs. From October 7th until November every Friday and Saturday is your day to be scared senseless.

Test your limits with the Appalachian Anarchy haunted trail. Afterwards if you need to blow off some steam, try your hand at the Biohazard Laser Tag. If you still have an urge to go on, you can be a part of the 3D Nightmare. If after all of that you need to take part in more family fun, you can play a few rounds of Spooky Golf. For the bravest of the brave, you can try to get out of the Escape Room with your life. Glade Springs is also hosting a No – Scare – Trick – or – Treat. It will be on October 30th from four to six p.m. and, it will be free for kids two years old and under. There will be hayrides, jump houses, and more.
For a more adult Halloween, you can attend the Bunkers Party for adults twenty-one years old and older. You could do one activity at Glade Springs or all of them. But what is Halloween without double the trouble? Instead of stooping after one haunted trail prove that you are no Hallo-weenie.
