Halloween attractions you don’t want to miss

Castle of Muskogee

The Castle of Muskogee is located in Muskogee, OK. This is definitely a family friendly event with plenty of attractions for everyone. The castle has a surplus of attractions including several walk-through attractions, zombie hunt and a haunted hayride. There is an overlying theme of medieval times hence the castle. You will get the most bang for your buck here. Admission is free but all the attractions cost. It’s from $25 to $30 for a combo pack with at least 4 attractions. Overall, the Castle receives a 1 out of 5 on scariness. They are open every friday and saturday in October.

Every year, my family and I go to the Castle mainly as a traditional family-bonding experience. We go to enjoy the autumn air and get into the Halloween spirit.

Psycho Path

Psycho Path is located in Sperry, OK. This attraction has three parts: the Dark Ride, Shadow Box and Quarantine Paintball shooter. The Dark Ride and Shadow Box will definitely get some jumps and screams out of you, but the Quarantine is just a family friendly fun shooter ride. Overall, they rank a 3 out of 5 on scariness. Don’t be the last one in line because the creatures love to follow you throughout the night. It costs $40 for all three attractions or $20 each. They are open every Friday and Saturday in October including last two thursdays (19th and 26th).

My family and I go to this one to scream a little and get creeped out. We really enjoy the Dark Ride because of the quality of the actors and all the fun scares. The Shadow Box is my personal favorite because of the story rich background and development of the walkthrough. The details are extraordinary if you can keep your eyes open! We’ve noticed the closer to Halloween, the better the attractions.


The Nightmare is located at GUTS Church in Tulsa, OK off the BA expressway. The Nightmare is a walkthough experience based on real life terror such as suicide, alcoholism, sex trafficking, etc. This year, they have fully renovated the attraction to be much scarier. The attraction has been thriving for 25 years now and plans to continue for many more! Although I haven’t went this year, since they cannot touch you I rate the Nightmare a 3 out of 5 on scariness. General Admission is $15 but an express line pass is $30. The express line is definitely worth it; the general line is always terribly long. The Nightmare is open every Friday and Saturday in October.

This is not an attraction you want to go to with your family. The Nightmare is so unique that it can’t really be compared against the rest. You’re not terrified all the way through, there are low action points. But just as you think you’re brave enough to walk through the rest, they get you again! I’ve actually fell onto the floor I was so startled and my group ran away from me. Go with friends that won’t leave you to die.

Hex House
The Hex House is not for the faint of the heart. I don’t recommend going in you don’t like being touched, picked up or grabbed. This year, the Hex House is split into two separate attractions: the Hex House and Westside Grim. This attraction is definitely targeted at an adult crowd. Overall, the Hex House duo ranks a 5 out of 5 on scariness. It costs $25 to get into both walkthroughs and $35 for a fast pass into all of them. This year, the Hex House will be open for “15 days of terror;” this includes every friday and saturday in October. All the dates are on their website at https://www.tulsahexhouse.com/

This is the most terrifying attraction I’ve ever been to. Actors are everywhere: at your feet, behind you, next to you, above you and they all will touch you. They’ll get into your head, whisper in your ears and follow you out of the attraction. I was screaming and latching onto someone into my group, an actor picked me up, tore me off her, and began dragging me away. I was so scared they let me go and I ran as far ahead as I could. If you want to be scared shitless, I promise Hex House won’t disappoint.
