Halloween in Hot Springs

Hot Springs, Arkansas has Halloween Adventures Galore - Murder Mystery Dinner, Haunted Houses and Tours, and More


Hot Springs Haunted Tours - This is a newer year round attraction that takes you back to the dark side of Hot Springs. Bob and I took this tour a few months ago and found it entertaining for the $15 it cost. I liked that it was a walking tour and how the guide told a bit about the past (which created the ghosts) and then about the present day mysteries. This is a year round activity in Hot Springs that seems very fitting next weekend. By the way there is a $2 discount if you purchase your tickets online. So go and enjoy a stroll through the seedy history of Hot Springs.


Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre at Porterhouse Restaurant on Friday the 29th. Come in costume and help solve the mystery of "Who Killed Grimsby Grave". Tickets Required.


"Nightmare on Central" - Halloween Party at the Arlington Resort 501-623-7771. Have a howling good time at the first ever Halloween Party. Costume contest and prizes. This is an adult only gathering that includes hors d'ouerves and entertainment by "Mr. Happy" a dance band. Cash bar in the room. Cost is $25/person or $40/couple.

HAUNTED HOUSES:
I am one of those people that everyone goes after at a haunted house, because I am sooo easy to scare. My imagination takes over in a dark, unknown hallway and the screams emit from my mouth and I am trying to bury into my husbands arms. So I have not personally attended any of these haunted houses. I am much more for the family friendly time of day with pumpkin carvings, hayrides, and corn mazes. However, I do know that many people love to be scared so this is what I was able to find in Hot Springs to keep you entertained this Halloween.


Magic Screams Spooktacular at Magic Springs by Day a Friendly Haunting for Families but by Night the Creatures Crawl out to interact with the guests, you can stroll through Phobia House and Murder Mansion if you dare. Open October 30th & 31st.
