Halloween events in South Dakota

If you’re looking for some Halloween-style fun in South Dakota, here a few notable events (quotes are taken from press releases or Web sites):

  • Fort Fear, Rapid City: "… South Dakota’s premier professional haunted attraction. Over 12,000 square feet of pure terror set in the Old West based on the short story, ‘The Legend of Ornias Goodnight’ by published horror writer Adrian Ludens."
  • Zoo Boo, Sioux Falls: "Visitors will wind their way through the decorated exhibits and walkways in the Zoo collecting candy and trinkets at a variety of treat tents from costumed presenters. Along the way, they will pass by the Endangered Animal Graveyard and see the markers for extinct animals like the Dodo Bird and Caspian Tiger. Other highlights include the Haunted Carrousel and the ‘Hall of Flames,’ which features over 250 hand-carved and lit Jack-o’-lanterns."
  • Fright Train, Hill City: "Enjoy the train from Hill City to Oblivion and back, with scary entertainment en route, three wine ‘potions,’ a keepsake glass and a snack to go with each wine."
