The Castle’s Halloween Festival takes place every weekend in October.
Expect a bigger, better, and more exciting Halloween Festival at the Castle of Muskogee with new scenes, more actors, and new merchants. Enjoy eleven 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.
New this year – Portal to the Dead! Ancient hieroglyphics led modern scientists to create “portals” where we can see the spirits of the dead. We can only hope they can’t come through the portal into our world! A big hit when introduced in 2013, the 10,000-square-foot Dark Castle Zombie Hunt will continue in 2015. 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 Escapologist, 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 and cold food and drinks, games, and bounce houses. Best of all, admission to the Village is free.
On Friday, October 9 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 to $15 with combo specials available. Advance tickets may be purchased online. Go to
