Hours: 6:00p.m. – 10:00p.m. – Halloween Land open 6:00p.m. – 9:00p.m.

Expect a bigger, better, and more exciting Halloween Festival at the Castle of Muskogee with new scenery, more actors, and new merchants. Enjoy ten great Halloween events at one incredible location: 3400 West Fern Mountain Road in Muskogee, Oklahoma’s 60 acre Halloween Theme Park! You’ll find thrills for the entire family, both inside and outside The Castle, located a short 35-minute drive from Tulsa on the Muskogee Turnpike.

A big hit when introduced last year, the ten thousand square foot Dark Castle Zombie Hunt will continue in 2014. You will be issued an infrared assault weapon that fires special “Zombie Bullets” to protect yourself and kill Zombies while you search for survivors of the raging Zombie wars inside. Or, try a walk through the woods on the Trail of Blood where the lost souls of those who have gone before will guide you; the Torture Chamber shows what really happened in medieval times in the depths of the dungeons; Casa Morte is a labyrinth through the 12th Century Castle with doom and mystery around every corner; Domus Horrificus takes you to the areas where your favorite horror monsters dwell; and in the Ultimate Maze, most of you will find your way, and the rest of you, well…..

For those of you with faint hearts, there is always the Haunted Hayride, a trip that is sure to keep you on your toes as you ride through the Halloween Festival grounds; the Enchanted Boardwalk is your chance to stroll on the boardwalk filled with Halloween inflatables; experience live entertainment on the Chessboard Stage with the Magic of Matthew VanZee, the delightful Raks al Hassana Dancers, and the comedy of the Jester Rejects.

For little ones 8 years of age and under, The Halloween Festival hosts Halloween Land – an old fashioned carnival of kid-friendly games, face painting, and prizes with absolutely no scares! The Halloween Village is the place where everyone experiences the very best of Halloween, including ghost stories, dancing, hot & cold food and drinks, games, and bounce houses. Best of all, admission to the Village is FREE!

On Friday, September 10th only, there will be a canned food drive benefiting the Muskogee Cooperative Ministries Food Pantry. For every canned food item you bring to the Castle, you will receive half off a single ticket!
Parking and admission to the Halloween Village is FREE. Tickets must be purchased for each event and the prices range from $2.00 to $15.00 with Combo Specials available. Advance tickets may be purchased on-line. Go to http://okcastle.com to check out ticket prices, combo packages and specials. Everyone under the age of 18 must have a picture I.D. to enter. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

You can get an early start on Halloween by participating in The Castle Zombie Run on September 13th, a benefit for the American Red Cross, Muskogee Service Center and the Muskogee affiliate of Habitat for Humanity. Zombie Run Registration and Packet retrieval begins at 1:00 pm, the first heat runs at 3:00 pm, and the last heat will be no later than 6:00 pm. Runners receive a t-shirt, a medal, and a reward bag.
