Halloween is just around the corner and so is Anakeesta’s NEW Legend of Hallow Mountain, a feature during Autumn at Anakeesta. This will be the first….and creepiest….outdoor haunt experience in Gatlinburg! We know you are excited but are you prepared?? As the kickoff date for Hallow Mountain creeps closer, here is a checklist to make sure you are ready to experience every sweet treat, ghoulish encounter, and pulse-pounding scare zone!
Things you don’t want to miss:
Included in your General Admission –
1 ) Hallow Mountain Graveyard: During the harvest moon, the lost souls of anguished settlers become the undead, rising from their graves, desperately searching for a way off Hallow Mountain as zombies, eager to harvest souls to share their misery. Meet the Gravedigger as he weaves a tale from long ago then takes you on a journey through Hallow Mountain Graveyard. NOTE: Only those ages 12 and up will be allowed in this specifically designed area for an intense and realistic scare.
2 ) Firefly Forest Experience: Experience the enchantment of thousands of fireflies pulsating in the forest below you as you walk 40-60 feet in the air, suspended in darkness. Hear the sounds of the forest as the nightlife around you awakens while you meander along our Treetop Skywalk.
3 ) 25 Nights of FREE Halloween Movies: Enchanting fun for all ghouls and boys! Movies will be shown on our big outdoor screen at the Overlook. Popcorn and sweet treats will be for sale to satisfy your appetite! Visit our calendar page to see when your favorite movie will be shown on the big screen
4 ) All-day Fun: Arrive earlier in the day to enjoy your unlimited rides on either the Chondola ride or Ridge Rambler adventure vehicles to experience the park during the day and then return for the nighttime fun! Just remember to keep your wristband on to access the park again.
5 ) Access to Halloween Themed Cocktails and Food: Enjoy a treat while you wait to experience the Hallow Mountain Graveyard or warm up with a fall favorite. You can purchase fall-themed sweet treats, warm drinks, and cocktails galore at any of our three restaurants. Enjoy a Beetlejuice, Candy Corn or a Gravedigger cocktail at Cliff Top Grill & Bar!
Add on to your adventure –

View the night sky while zipping down 3 lines 125 feet above the forest floor and plunge into the dark abyss. – $39.99
7 ) Haunted Rail Runner: Race down a spooky mountainside ride in the pitch black to a settler’s camp where the walking dead may try to steal your soul with only strobing lights to guide your way through the darkness of night. – $12.99 – Single Rider & $14.99 – Tandem Rider
