33rd Annual - Ghosts & Goblins 2016 - Coming Soon!
Huntingdon, PA. Come experience the horror of the 33rd Edition of Ghosts & Goblins - 2016. With over 30 years of haunted tour experience and expertise behind them, Lincoln Caverns and Whisper Rocks, near Huntingdon, is busy with preparations for their greatest haunt ever, featuring 90 minutes of fun and terror in the caves, through the woods and on the wagon! “Pennsylvania’s ultimate haunted experience” provides scares, laughs, and even some cave education to thousands of visitors each year. Ghosts & Goblins Tours are open to the public Friday and Saturday, October 7th through 29th. From 11:00 AM till 5:00 PM on Saturdays visitors enjoy a very special one hour family tour through two beautiful crystal caverns, one haunted and one natural, with just the right mix of surprises and cave information along the way, followed by a family friendly hayride. On Fridays and Saturdays nights, tickets are sold from 6:00 PM till 9:30 PM for the all scary edition of Ghosts & Goblins, featuring new haunted cave themes, the increasingly haunted trail, followed by a haunted hayride. Both daytime and evening tours provide visitors with three unique experiences for the price of one. Advance tickets for the annual fun-filled Halloween adventure go on sale September 7. Regular guided tours of the decorated and natural caverns are available 9:00 A.M. till 4:00 P.M. Sunday through Friday throughout the fall season.
Each year Lincoln Caverns’ creative staff crafts a new script with new characters for the cavern portion of the tour, keeping the surprises coming even for repeat visitors. Costumed guides explain the wonders and highlights of a haunted Lincoln Caverns with spirited narrative, while supporting characters provide humor and horror along the way. During the day an experienced interpreter greets visitors at Whisper Rocks to guide them through the natural beauty and splendor of Pennsylvania’s most beautiful cavern. For those looking for a totally horrifying experience, the haunted trail meandering through the woods atop Warrior Ridge replaces Whisper Rocks as the second component of the tour on Friday and Saturday evenings, followed by the haunted hayride tour finale. Daytime hayrides take visitors on a fall ride around Warrior Ridge Farm, while nighttime visitors experience the horror of the woods surrounding the farm.
During the daytime tours special care is taken by the staff members to gear the 'fright level' of the tour to the age group of the participants, making Ghosts & Goblins the appropriate Halloween experience for everyone. With this special attention, the tour is ideal for organized groups from Brownies and Cub Scouts to high school youth groups and senior citizens. A Halloween Party Pak for children on Saturday mornings includes all group activities plus a special costume party with Halloween craft, pizza lunch, prizes and treats.
