This one is a bit of a drive, but if you’re up for the 35-minute trip, this haunted house offers a variety of spooky events sure to make you jump. Located in Mill, PA, this scream-inducing attraction is only open those 18 and older. The website warns that guests could be “grabbed, tied down” or “made part of the show.”

Pumpkin Festival

If the spooky stuff isn’t your thing, check out Way Fruit Farm’s Pumpkin Festival, which will be held on Oct, 28, 2017, from 9 a.m. t0 4 p.m. Admission is free, and events include a Make-Your-Own-Caramel-Apple Bar and free hayrides.

Lincoln Cavers Ghosts and Goblins

This scary tour will take you through a haunted cave, through the woods, and on a wagon ride to remember, with terrifying surprises around every corner. The event takes place Oct. 27 and 28.
