4 Spooktacular Spots to Visit This Halloween Season

4 Spooktacular Spots to Visit

This Halloween Season

Boo! Spooky season is upon us, and the Halloween countdown is on. While some may prefer pumpkin patches and milder autumnal pastimes, others revel in the spine-tingling excitement of hair-raising thrills. That’s why we created a list of four spooktacular spots to visit in the Olde English District before November rolls around. 


SCarowinds, presented by Carowinds, located along the North Carolina-South Carolina state line, is arguably the largest Halloween event in the Carolinas, and it is back for another year of haunting. Every corner of the theme park is lined with horrifying haunted mazes, scare zones and live entertainment. Carowinds’ rides are also up and running during the evening’s event. SCarowinds will be open select nights until October 29, 2023. After a visit here, you’ll want to sleep with the lights on.

This is the final season this thrill will be open at the current location, and you won’t want to miss it (Open select nights from October 6 to October 29, 2023).
