This renowned walk-through Halloween experience features more than 7,000 hand-carved, illuminated jack o’ lanterns forming assorted impressive displays. See the Statue of Liberty, pumpkin carousel, windmill, and--new this year--a medieval castle, to name a few.

Creative jack-o’-lantern art takes numerous forms in themed sections, components of elaborate arrangements.

All admissions are by timed ticket only, which MUST be purchased in advance. This sells out weeks in advance, so don't delay. In years past, the organizer has added additional dates during the show's run, so check back here for updates. Tickets may be purchased online or by phone.
