With Halloween creeping around the corner, it’s that time of year where families and friends look for a good scare. Alabama holds many attractions that are open in October and early November that are open to the public to help fuel the spooky Halloween spirit.
Personally, I have been to Sleepy Hollow, Pope’s Haunted Farm, The Terror Torium and Haunted Hollow. Sleepy Hollow, Pope’s and Haunted Hollow are definitely worth the price, and are great for groups of friends. The Terror Torium is more kid and family friendly and less time consuming.
All of the haunted attractions in Alabama this year are following social distancing guidelines and keeping areas sanitized in between groups of people.
