For those who want to see the Halloween thrills, chills and spooks for 2019, here are some worthwhile events to look forward to. Take a look:
The Legend of Hallow Mountain
Anakeesta in Gatlinburg
“Enter a world of whimsy and scares at Anakeesta’s Legend of Hallow Mountain. From kid-friendly Halloween fun to pulse-pounding scare zones, everyone will find their level of fun… or FEAR…at Anakeesta.
For all ages throughout the day, Autumn at Anakeesta will offer family-friendly crafts, games, activities, not-so-spooky character visits, and fall-inspired treats for all.
As the nightlife awakes, the Treetop Skywalk with 16 sky bridges transforms into the NEW Firefly Forest, Anakeesta Gem Mining treasures begin to glow, Halloween movies air at the overlook and the mountain coaster and zipline rides turn into haunted adventures and the Vista Gardens transform into Hallow Mountain Graveyard where the undead rise to seek their way off Hallow Mountain… enter if you DARE!
Autumn at Anakeesta and Hallow Mountain are included in the cost of general admission. Zombie Ziplining and the Haunted Rail Runner Mountain Coaster require an additional ticket purchase.” – Gatlinburg.com
