Skeleton's Lair Scream Park
Every Friday & Saturday evening through Halloween, as well as Sunday, Oct. 16, 23, & 30 and Monday, Halloween!

Now in its 23rd year... just 15 minutes from Bowling Green out Cemetery Road! Brave over 10 acres of spooktacular, interactive scenes in the Haunted Woods with live actors guiding, or should we say, chasing you in the right direction. Other attractions include a haunted hayride, a two-story haunted house, and our 3-D haunted maze. Don't miss Douglas Tait (official Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees stunt double) weekend Oct. 14-15.  Visit the website here.

Just Piddlin Farm Tours
Open daily from September 10 through November 1

This family-friendly farm is only open to the general public during the fall season, so you better believe they do it right! A huge corn maze, children's play area, corn box, and concessions are just the beginning. Add in a pumpkin patch, hayrides, fall decor for purchase, fresh baked goods, and you get the picture! Bonus: Just Piddlin' is often a little less crowded than Jackson's Orchard on the weekends.  Visit the website here.

Scarecrow Trail at Lost River Cave
Available daily between October 1-23

This colorful and exciting fall event will bring enjoyment to your entire crew. Lost River Cave is home to Kentucky's only underground cave boat tour, but each fall, it becomes a festive outdoor oasis. Stretch your legs as you walk the Valley trails to see the homemade scarecrows on display decorated by area businesses, organizations and clubs. This is the annual fundraiser for the Friends of Lost River Cave, so be sure to stop by the gift shop and vote for your favorite ‘crow!  

Chaney's Dairy Barn Corn Maze

This working dairy farm takes family fun to the next level, especially during the fall season! Start with their awesome playground, jump to your heart's delight on the jumping pillow, take some festive photos, and then navigate the corn maze, complete with themed checkpoints. Finish off with a self-guided farm tour and homemade ice cream... Pumpkin, Cinnamon and Caramel Apple flavors anyone?!
