Ultimate Halloween Fest Announces Full 2022 Event Schedule

0

Ultimate Halloween Partythe annual Halloween festival, which holds events in Pope Lick Park and Paristown, recently announced its schedule for this season.

This year, the festival features new attractions, including a “30-minute outdoor immersive horror escape, for those looking for a spooky experience.” It basically combines the puzzles of an escape room with the typical Pope Lick Monster-themed haunted outdoor festival attraction.

It’s part of the “main” event, a festival at Pope Lick Park that also features indoor escape games, a jack-o-lantern light show, tarot readings, and other activities.

Here is the summary of all events that Ultimate Halloween Fest is offering this season. (Note: some activities charge a separate fee.)
