The heart of BOO Alley is the bustling Halloween festival in the town center, with a towering pumpkin pyramid, hay maze, and an assortment of tasty treats, spooky drinks, and fun souvenirs from festive vendor carts. The live A Great Big Boo!musical show plays multiple times each night at Lakeside Amphitheater, taking viewers on an interactive adventure to save Halloween.
Other popular attractions include the BOO Train with Vinnie the Vampire, “magic potions” at Cranium the Mad Scientist’s Lab, Wolfgang Werewolf’s Rockin’ Ride, Princess Priscilla’s Perfect Party, and Frankie’s Lounge, where adults can enjoy beer and cocktails while the kids join in the cabaret-style show. Families are encouraged to come in costume and go trick-or-treating for candy along the BOO Trail.
