Make no mistake, we’re all about the corn mazes and haunted houses, but if you’re looking for something a little different to try, there’s some intriguing new options along the Wasatch Front.
1. Cruise the Provo River
Alight with dozens of leereing jack-o-lanterns as your creepy river guide tells you terrifying tales of the waterway. Just as you’re getting comfortable, the ghostly pirates spring from the banks and attack your boat. Bring a blanket and someone to hold onto when you jump and scream. Family safe. More info here.
2. Carnivore Carnival
The life-sized dinosaurs at the George S Eccles Dinosaur Park are creepy enough during the day. But walking round a dark corner at night to find one rearing up in front of you? Extra creepy. Wear your costume and play the old-school carnival games. More info here.
3. The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow
Travel to Midway for a wagon ride through the woods as you hear “The Legend of the Headless Horseman.” Don’t be surprised if those woods turn out to be haunted. More info here.
4. The Pumpkin Festival on the Heber Valley Railroad
Take a train ride through the mountains as costumed characters tell you scary tales while plying you with pumpkin cookies and hot chocolate. Leave the safety of your train car to select a pumpkin from their hidden field, and dash back inside before one of the scarecrows catch you! More info here.
