Halloween Comes to Castle of Muskogee Thru Oct.

Fall is in the air, which means the Halloween Festival at the Castle of Muskogee is just around the corner, Sept. 30-Oct. 29.

At the 60-acre park, visitors will find a collection of culinary creations, over 30 shops with crafts, décor, clothing, and entertainment for the entire family. More than just a haunted house, the castle provides an array of thrills between 11 different attractions:

New this year is the Halloween Train, where guests board at the Depot (located in Castle Village) and enjoy a ride throughout the festival grounds but only those falling into the “not-so-scary” category. Families are encouraged to plan a trip to Halloween Land, a carnival-themed area that is ideal for younger castle visitors. Activities include kid-friendly games, face painting and prizes with absolutely no scares.

For those with faint hearts, there is the Haunted Hayride, a trip that is sure to keep riders on their toes as they ride through the castle countryside. The Enchanted Boardwalk provides opportunity to discover the magic of the Woodlands, which also features over 200 Halloween inflatables. There will also be live entertainment featured on the Chessboard Stage with the Magic of Matthew VanZee and the comedy of the Jester Rejects. Back by request will be Jack Sparrow entertaining on stage as well as throughout the Castle Village.

Within castle walls, guests can relive the doom of the dark ages by touring the Torture Chamber or daring a stroll through Casa Morte. Translated House of the Dead, this 12th century labyrinth provides horror and menacing spirits around every corner.

For ones looking to revisit the nightmare-inducing stars of the silver screen, they can plan a trip to Domus Horrificus, where everyone’s favorite monsters dwell, and to the Ultimate Maze.

In the depths of the castle grounds, patrons can test their fear factor on the Trail of Blood, a staple of the Halloween Festival with new menacing creatures added 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 the return to Castle Village.

The Dark Tower Zombie Hunt offers immersion scares where visitors receive weapons and the mission to clear the area of Zombies and rescue survivors.

Parking and admission to the Halloween Village is free. Tickets must be purchased for each attraction, with prices ranging from $3-$15 with combo specials available. Advance tickets may be purchased online.

Castle of Muskogee’s Halloween Festival is open every Friday and Saturday, 6 p.m.-10 Sept. 30-Oct. 29. Halloween Land is open 6 p.m.-9.
