Halloween Attractions in Gatlinburg TN

It’s October already and you know what that means. Yes, Halloween is here again. It’s time for spine chilling, hair raising fright! If you happen to be in Gatlinburg Tennessee and are in the mood for a scare this Halloween, you could visit the “Carnival of Screams”. Carnival of Screams is just one part of “Fright Nights” at Ripley’s Haunted Adventure. Carnival of Screams is open every weekend in October and also runs non-stop from October 29th through November 3rd for the purpose of Halloween. The carnival of Screams is one of the most requested shows during Fright Nights and is guaranteed to leave you breathless. At Ripley’s Haunted Adventure there are rooms that are all themed differently with terrifying sights and scenes. Ripley’s also hires actors to perform frightening deeds upon those who seek to be scared and they do a very good job at performing. These actors perform very well and you will leave terrified. The shows always have a specific frightening theme and this year is a tribute to the first year of Ripley’s Haunted Adventure. The show usually takes about twenty to thirty minutes for one group to pass through. This run through of the show included a ride to the third floor on an incline elevator. If you tend to be very scared of someone or something being too close to you, be reassured that no living thing will touch you. You can begin being scared to death at 6:13 p.m. when the show starts. Ticket prices are $12.95 for people ages 12 and older. Students that attend University of Tennessee pay only $6.99 for their ticket when they present their UT ID.
If you are not one who enjoys being scared, then just enjoy the fall season and Halloween atmosphere of Gatlinburg TN.

Fall Takes Over

Gatlinburg TN - Fall is almost fully under way in Gatlinburg, and because of this there is no better place to vacation. The tops of the trees are starting to turn yellow and orange and you can almost feel the crisp fall breeze that all you travelers have come to love. Although there is slightly higher temperatures than normal, fall will be in full swing within the next few weeks. Whether it is good or bad, full fall foliage is a little later this year. It will probably be in full swing by late October or early November.
Maybe because of more work or the extreme drought conditions in the southeast, but there seems to be a heavier rush on renting cabins this October over the past few. Most vacationers are calling earlier and the Gatlinburg cabins are booking faster. In fact, for most of our cabins, the weekend dates are almost gone. Not sure I could put a finger on it if I had too, but I think everyone just needs a vacation in Gatlinburg this October and November.
If you are still thinking of booking a cabin for the fall season, you need to go ahead and start making arrangements as soon as possible. Whether you need to relax, a nice weekend getaway, or you are a regular visitor in the fall, call us and book on of our Gatlinburg cabins.
