2013 info: Would you dare to enter Fear House? (Not a very original name, but at least you know what you're getting yourself into.) How about RockKill High School, the educational establishment formerly known as Rockville High School? If they sound too frightening, you could check out the shows such and rides, many of which will be offered with the lights out. For younger kids, expect trick-or-treating with Bugs and the gang (called "Twick or Tweat Twail," in honor of Tweety Bird I guess) as well as cookie pumpkin decorating.
