October 24, 2017

Celebrate Halloween in CincinnatiWhen driving around Cincinnati in October, it's hard not to get into the Halloween spirit with the bountiful pumpkin displays and spooky decorations on every corner.

To help our Springs at West Chester and Springs at Liberty Township residents get into the Halloween spirit, here are five festive celebrations happening in the Cincinnati area that are worth a scream:

1. Jack-O-Lantern Junction
EnterTRAINment Junction
7379 Squire Ct, West Chester

Entertainment Junction is a must-see for train enthusiasts of all ages as the facility has the largest miniature train display in the world. When October arrives, Entertainment Junction transforms into Jack-O-Lantern Junction in honor of Halloween and offers an indoor maze and pumpkin patch, and outdoor train rides and a straw maze. Purchase tickets online for $14.95 and save $2 on admission.

2. Halloween Nights at Parky's Farm
10073 Daly Rd, Cincinnati

Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening in October from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., Parky's Farm will host a non-scary Halloween celebration. Activities include a wagon ride through the woods for a festive light show, a Hardly Haunted House, campfires and more. Save money by purchasing tickets online for $7 per person.

3. Halloween Haunt
Kings Island
6300 Kings Island Dr, Mason

This legendary Halloween experience is so terrifying that you may want to leave the kids at home (not recommended for anyone under the age of 13). Every Friday and Saturday night through October 28, your worst nightmares can come true by visiting this theme park's 10 bone-chilling attractions. Admission also includes access to 20 theme park rides, including Banshee, Diamondback and the Beast, which are all more frightening in the dark! Purchase tickets online to receive monster savings ($31.99 online versus $48 at the door).

4. Haunted Village
Heritage Village Museum
11450 Lebanon Rd, Cincinnati

Let's face it; some museums can give off a spooky vibe anyway, so the Haunted Village at the Heritage Village Museum seems to be a fitting venue for some seasonal frights. The fear factor of this event is "slight fright," meaning that it’s meant to be family-friendly depending on the age of your children. Some of the ghostly attractions include a haunted wagon ride, mad scientists, witches, a spooky cemetery and more. Come experience the Haunted Village the weekends of October 20-21 and October 27-28. Use this coupon for $2 off admission (admission is normally $10 per person).

5. Dent Schoolhouse
5963 Harrison Ave, Cincinnati

Ready to be scared? As in wet-your-pants scared? You need to check out the Dent Schoolhouse, which is an actual haunted school that hosts one of the scariest haunted house attractions in America. The story behind the Dent Schoolhouse is that the janitor killed more than a dozen students and hid their bodies in the schoolhouse basement. The school was closed in 1955 after the bodies were discovered, and the schoolhouse is said to be haunted by the roaming spirits of the children. Go if you dare.
