Castle of Muskogee Hosts Halloween Festival in October


The Halloween Festival at the Castle of Muskogee is alive again this year and runs Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 26. The Castle of Muskogee is located at 3400 W. Fern Mountain Rd. in Muskogee.
The Ghost Hosts of Oklahoma’s 60-acre park invite visitors to join them for the event where they will find a collection of culinary creations and more than 30 shops for crafts, décor, clothing and entertainment for the entire family.
More than a haunted house, the Castle provides an array of thrills between 11 different attractions. The goal of the Castle is to create one-of-a-kind memories of fun and adventure for everyone.
Over the years, with the addition of new haunts, the Castle attracts more and more guests and it has implemented a new ticketing system, created by QLESS. Guests now sign in and then go about their evening freely. When it is the guests turn, they will receive a text for instructions. In stepping up the tech game, the aim is to optimize guests entertainment and fun at the Halloween Festival.
Families with young children are encouraged to plan a trip to Halloween Land, a carnival themed area ideal for kids eight and under. Activities include kid-friendly games, face painting, and prizes with absolutely no scares.
The Castle’s Halloween village also features live entertainment on the Chessboard Stage with the comedy of the Jester Rejects and Mark Logsdon: Escapologist. New this year is David Smith the Hypnotist and Topsy Turvy Acrobats.
Looking for a bone-chilling scare? Guests can venture into the depths of the Castle grounds and test for fear factor on the Trail of Blood.
As a staple of the Castle’s Halloween Festival, the Castle has redefined the possibilities and added new menacing creatures to this wooded walk. Guests may gather courage before 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 Castle Village.
Guests are encouraged to use the Castle’s Skull Rating as a guide when choosing haunts. For example, the Haunted Hayride provides guests with eerie excitement without the residual nightmares.
Within the Castle walls, guests can stroll through Casa Morte, a labyrinth that provides horror and menacing spirits around every corner.
