TOURS + HAUNTED HOUSES
Historical Haunts Memphis (ongoing)
Historical Haunts hosts ongoing spooky tours, haunted pub crawls, and ghost hunts. This goes on year-round, not just during this spooky season. But you'll want to make your reservations for October tours and crawls quickly as it tends to get crowded this time of year, and capacity is limited.
Backbeat Tours (ongoing)
Backbeat hosts walking two-hour Ghost Tours downtown on a regular basis, just be sure to reserve your spot ahead of time as capacity is limited.
Wicked Ways Haunted House (select days through Nov. 6)
I'm hearing this haunted house at 160 Cumberland near Wiseacre is the most terrifying in town. This year, they're requiring face masks (of the health variety) going through this super-scary absolutely not for children haunted house. Proceeds benefit St. Jude. Check out the website for ticket info and hours, which vary depending on the day.
Jones Orchard Shadowlands of Fear (Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays in October)
Imagining yourself in cute flannel, picking apples and such? Forget it. At Jones Orchard’s scary attractions, creatures and creeps come out to haunt the woods ("Festival of Fear") and the orchard itself ("Hysteria"). Haunted attractions are $15 each or get scared at both for $28. There's also a regular non-haunted corn maze for $8.
HauntedWeb of Horrors (October 1-3, 8-10, 15-17, 22-24, 28-31 + November 5-6)
Another one of the spookiest haunted “houses” in town, HauntedWebs of Horrors has four different attractions plus new horror escape rooms—yikes! There’s a lot going on over there with varied dates, times, and tickets, so check out the website for all the info.
Head out to Priddy Farms (4595 N. Germantown Rd.) for pumpkins, a petting zoo, a haunted corn maze, and more. Open every day through November 7.
It’s a 1.5 hour drive from Memphis, but Falcon Ridge in Toone, Tennessee, has a corn maze, pumpkin patch, hayrides, pony rides, and more through the end of the month.
Buy your flowers, hay bales, and pumpkins at 4680 Walnut Grove this fall.
Pumpkin patch and more fall fun (in addition to the haunted stuff mentioned above).
Not really a pumpkin patch, but you can fight the influencers for a spot at the Instagram-friendly pumpkin house at the Dixon.
