Ghosts Goblins

Come experience the horror and humor of “The Best of 40 Fears” edition of Ghosts & Goblins - 2023. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 40 years since the late Peg Filson, of 7 Points Marina, suggested that we do a haunted tour to package with their fall foliage cruises at nearby Raystown Lake. That conversation with our partner in tourism has sparked years of creativity, originality, laughter, screams, mayhem, and FUN at Lincoln Caverns and Whisper Rocks, near Huntingdon, every October since. The tour has grown to feature the triple treat of 90 minutes in the caves, through the woods, and on the wagon! “Pennsylvania’s ultimate haunted experience” provides scares, laughs, and even some cave education to thousands of visitors each year. Ghosts & Goblins Tours are open to the public Friday and Saturday, October 6th through 28th.

From 11:00 AM till 5:00 PM on Saturdays, visitors enjoy an incredibly special one-hour tour through two beautiful crystal caverns, one featuring family-friend Ghosts & Goblins and one natural, with just the right mix of surprises and cave information along the way, followed by a family hayride. An optional self-guided walk through the woods features the popular Local Legends Trail. New narrated Legends are added each year! Friday and Saturday night tours leave every 20 minutes from 6:00 PM till 9:40 PM for the all haunted edition of Ghosts & Goblins, featuring a new spine-tingling cave tale, featuring some of your favorite goblins from the last 4 decades, followed by the terrifying trail and hayride with more scares and surprises along the way.
