CREEPY FUN IN GATLINBURG
Looking for a scary good time in Gatlinburg, Tennessee? You don’t have to be in town during Halloween to tangle with ghosts and goblins. In fact, there are several ways you can get the creeps all year long thanks to some spooky Gatlinburg attractions.
At Hauntings—A Live Ghost Show on the Parkway, you’ll witness a theatrical experience in the same vein (no pun intended) as Disney’s Haunted Mansion. Animatronics and cool, ghostly effects are at play in a room where guests stay seated (if they dare) throughout the presentation.
Ripley’s Haunted Adventure is another spook-tacular attraction that gives fright fans a run for their money. Also incorporating live actors into the presentation, this tour takes you through room after room inside a “haunted casket company,” where grisly displays and special effects lurk around every corner. And you never know who may jump out of the shadows.
Meanwhile, at Mysterious Mansion on River Road, live actors help generate thrills and chills at what is regarded as a popular, long-running attraction. Guests make their way through room after room of a specter-filled house that was rumored to have been built on the site of an old funeral home. Some say that actual ghosts show up from time to time during this 15- to 20-minute self-guided tour, but you’ll have to investigate that paranormal rumor for yourself.
While all of the above attractions rely on actors and special effects, you can also get a real taste of the macabre when you visit Gatlinburg. At Ghost & Haunt Tours, you can step into the world of the unknown with a hair-raising, 90-minute tour into the spirit realm. This guide-led walking tour takes you to some of Gatlinburg’s more shadowy locations, where you’ll hear stories of the strange and unexplained.
Also, at Ghost Walk of Gatlinburg, you’ll take a walking nighttime tour of the city’s most historic and supposedly haunted sites. The one-hour excursion meets at White Oak Cemetery and is led by a costumed, storytelling guide.
