Got Spooky Plans?


Looking for some hair-raising things to do for Halloween during these corona filled days? Here’s a list of three things that you can do to make this little holiday one of your most special days yet. 

You can always terrify your family with a COVID scare, but if you’re looking for something more mild, the pumpkin patch at Storybrook Ranch will most definitely catch your attention. There are many activities to fill your time such as a hay maze, petting zoo, bounce house and obstacle courses. The whole ordeal costs $15 for children over the age of 2 and masks are absolutely mandatory for admittance. Events happen every day from 10:00 to dusk until November 1, so be sure to check out this fall staple before the season ends. More details on COVID precautions and additional information can be found here.

For the thrill seekers out there, the Haunted Shadows Lake Trail at The Colony, Tx would be more of your calling. Filled with jump scares and endless surprises, this location has a haunted hospital and a sanatorium. The realistic appeal is most certainly there with scary accurate props, settings and actors. Honestly, those who make it out without wet pants should get a discount. Tickets cost $25 per admission, but more information on location and fear facts can be found here. But remember, masks are most certainly required at this location also. 

For people who want to ride out the Halloween wave at home while ignoring the trick or treaters, the movie “Death of Me” will certainly be the spooky surprise that you need. Starring Maggie Q and Luke Hemsworth, a vacationing couple must resolve a mystery when a video of one killing the other crops up. This movie might most certainly give you the shivers that’ll last way longer than just October 31.  

There’s always the classical trick-or-treating ordeal but make sure to stay safe, wear a mask, and sanitize your treats before you dive into them. Happy Halloween Warriors!
