1. Outbreak Dread the Undead

During this chilling experience, you find yourself in the middle of a worldwide zombie outbreak, and the only way to make it out is through an emergency exit on the other side of the compound! As you make your way through the ransacked lab, ruined morgue, and rotting basement, watch out for the zombies who might just be lurking around the corner! This attraction at the Hollywood Wax Museum features live actors, but there is no need to worry as the “scare actors” won’t actually touch you!

2. Great Pumpkin LumiNights

Celebrate Halloween with thousands of carved and illuminated jack-o-lanterns during the Great Pumpkin LumiNights at the Dollywood Harvest Festival! Each evening, the Timber Canyon section of the park comes alive with the spectacular glow of pumpkins that have been carved with a variety of whimsical scenes! The Great Pumpkin LumiNights also features delicious pumpkin-themed food and live entertainment. This fall festival is included for free as part of your paid admission to Dollywood!

3. Haunted Cabin Escape Room

This escape game at Trapped Escape Rooms is based on a cabin deep in the woods that was home to old man Ramsey, a notorious moonshiner during the prohibition. He mysteriously disappeared and left behind his secret recipe, the location of the still, and his vast fortune in the cabin! Your team has 60 minutes to find this information, but be warned: old man Ramsey is said to haunt those who attempt to loot his legacy!
