Get into the Halloween spirit with Fright Nights at Ripley’s Haunted Adventure! This is the 13th year the Gatlinburg attraction has lured visitors to dare to be scared.
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in October guests get access to special Fright Nights events, starting at 6:13pm with a New Orleans-style character parade. The Fright Night shows are included with Ripley’s Haunted Adventure tickets. This year’s featured shows are “Backwoods Terror: You Just Made a Wrong Turn,” a show dedicated to all things Halloween, and “Voodoo 13,” where voodoo takes center stage.
Ripley’s Haunted Adventure in Gatlinburg is a scary year-round attraction, but during Halloween they up the ante, as the number of performers multiply and they also add themed surroundings that lay on sight, sound touch and smell.
The year-round Haunted House adventure is located on the site of what once was the Grimsby & Streaper Casket Company. After residents started disappearing, the old casket factory was shut down. Now, Ripley’s Attractions operates it and visitors who dare to be scared pass through their doors.
