Halloween is a great time to visit St. Louis. Pumpkin patches, haunted hayrides, and harvest festivals make fall the favorite time of the year for kids and adults alike. It's also the best time of year to learn about everything haunted and paranormal.
St. Louis Lemp Mansion is considered one of the top haunted houses in the U.S. The wealthy Lemp family faced a series of tragic events after taking advantage of Cherokee Cave for their beer brewing business. Other haunted spots in the city include Bloody Island and Laclede’s Landing, which witnessed the Great St. Louis fire and the cholera epidemic.
The historic Union Station, dating back to 1894, also offers a not-so-spooky Halloween experience, ideal for families. It includes train-or-treat, a pumpkin patch, a haunted maze with Halloween characters, and daily Fire & Light shows. Union Station Halloween Experience is usually available from early October.
St. Louis Zoo is another perfect family-friendly Halloween destination. Boo at the Zoo is the nighttime experience available from mid through late October.

The family-friendly fun event for kids is held on all weekends in mid to late October.
Six Flags Frightfest is perfect for older thrill-seekers who are ready for some serious scares. The spookiest haunted attractions and rides are available from late September through October. Will you dare to face zoo creatures at Uncaged Chaos or meet Pigman in the Slaughter House? Zombies, clowns, and vampires lurk in every corner of the park, getting ready to make their move.
