The Castle of Muskogee’s Halloween Festival has returned, running Sept. 29 – Oct. 28. Visitors will find a collection of culinary creations, over 30 craft, home décor and clothing shops, and entertainment for the entire family, including 11 Halloween attractions for all degrees of thrill seekers.

For the major thrill seekers, the Trail of Blood takes visitors into the depths of the castle grounds with new menacing creatures to be found on the wooded walk. Guests may gather courage before their entrance or count survivors afterwards at the trail’s pub, The Rack. The hideaway’s host, Elvira, may not offer sanctuary from the trail’s ghouls, but she’ll be there to serve up drinks and entertaining tales before guests’ return to the Castle Village.

For a full immersion scare, the Dark Tower Zombie Hunt provides guests opportunity with a mission and weapons to clear the area of zombies and rescue survivors.
Other activities include the Haunted Hayride, a stroll through the Casa Morte labyrinth, and Domus Horrificus, similar to Casa Morte, only scarier.

Visitors are encouraged to use the Castle’s Skull Rating as a guide when choosing rides; the number of skulls represents the degree of terror – five skulls indicating an extreme scare.

For those looking for more mild amusement, live entertainment will be offered at the Castle’s Halloween village on the Chessboard Stage with the comedy of the Jester Rejects and Escapologist Mark Logsdon. New this year is David Smith the Hypnotist and Topsy Turvy Acrobats.

Families with little ones are encouraged to visit Halloween Land, a carnival-themed area ideal for kids ages eight and under. Activities include kid-friendly games, face painting and prizes with absolutely no scares.

In order to address the oftentimes long lines at attractions, the Halloween Festival has added a new ticketing system, created by QLESS. The system allows guests to sign in for a certain attraction, and when it is their turn, they will receive a text, instead of being required to wait in line.

Parking and admission to the Halloween Village is free.

Ticket prices for each attraction range from $3 to $15, with combination specials available. Visit okcastle.com to find pricing, attraction packages and details on attractions.
