If you’re looking for some spooky fun this fall that the whole family can enjoy, here are a few ideas:

1. Ghosts & Legends Theatre (Barefoot Landing at Myrtle Beach, SC). This is an incredible special effects show unlike anything you’ve ever seen before! Participants will watch doors slam, lightening flash, cannons firing, animated objects (such as musical instruments playing and treasure chests opening seemingly on their own) and much more–all while a narrator shares stories of ghosts and hauntings of the South Carolina Lowcountry.

2. Trolley of the Doomed (Savannah, GA). A costumed guide will show you the most haunted places in Savannah from the comfort (and security!) of an air-conditioned trolley. The guide will share stories of specters and spooks that are sure to entertain all aboard. Those who dare can go into one of the most haunted places in Savannah. This tour is the only one that allows access to this haunted house that also features a voodoo room.

3. Ghost Train Adventure (St. Augustine, FL). This spooktacular train ride departs nightly from Ripley’s Museum. The 90-minute ride includes ghostly stops at Castillo de San Marcos, the French Huguenot Cemetery, and The Castle Warden.

4. Hearse Ghost Tours (New Orleans, LA) is an interesting and unusual way to explore of one the most haunted cities in America. Participants ride in the back of a hearse while discovering The Cities of the Dead’s most haunted sites. This is a memorable experience! The company also offers a cemetery tour.

5. Disney’s Haunted Mansion (all Disney theme parks) Note: It is called the Phantom Manor in Paris, France Disney theme park. Take a fun ride on the Doom Buggy to have some good old-fashioned PG-rated fun. This is my favorite ride at Disney.
