Just because you’re located in the south doesn’t mean there aren’t lots of spooky Halloween events within a short drive! Here are three of my favourite Halloween “must-dos”:
Train of Terror:
Travelling one km west of Mossleigh, the Train of Terror at Aspen Crossing will surely give you goosebumps, make you scream and get you in the Halloween spirit! Check in at the spooky train station before boarding a ride on a haunted moving train for a ride you’ll never forget. This horror event is for adults (18+) only, however there are some train rides allowing teenagers (12+) as well. Make sure you buy your tickets and prepare yourself for a scare of a lifetime during the 40 minute drive.

Freaky Fridays and Flashlight Nights:
Take the 20 minute drive to Cobb’s Adventure Park; a family friendly place that’s well worth the drive. During the day on Saturdays and Sundays you can take a beautiful walk through the pumpkin patch and pick your favourite pumpkin for some fun Halloween carving. And for the thrill seekers, stop by in the evening on Fridays and Saturdays to enter into the Field of Screams, which features haunted houses, a cemetery corn maze, rides, activities, and much more!
Deane House Restaurant:
This haunted restaurant is definitely one of my top favourite places to dine! It’s just a 30 minute drive from Jackson at Walden to get to this house, built in 190, and hear about all the alleged suicides, murders and other accidental deaths that happened there. While you feast on their delicious menu items, be sure to ask the staff about the disconnected phone that often rings, accompanied by the smell of cigar smoke, or the frequently changing bloodstain in the attic. This restaurant is perfect for an upscale couples night out while keeping that Halloween vibe still going. Highly recommended!
Until next time,
