Halloween is just around the corner, don't miss all the spooky fun to be had in Schenectady County this Fall season!
This tour is not for the faint of heart. Your nightmare begins with a corpse-guided tour along a serial killer infested forest to then be hauled into the trees among complete, utter horror. Once in the trees you will be launched in complete darkness … alone, afraid, and vulnerable … along a screaming steel cable hundreds of feet along Mountain Ridge Adventure’s awesome Zip Line Park. The terror occurs every Friday and Saturday night in the month of October.
Explore the historic Stockade after dark and discover the neighborhood’s most blood-curdling ghost stories. Tickets are $15 and you can choose either the "Colonial Hauntings" or "Ghostly Victorian" tour. The two tours feature different stories, and venture through different part of the neighborhood. Tours depart at 6:30 and 7:30pm, Thursdays and Fridays.
