Here we are, just a few days away from fall.  If you ask anyone from the 518 they'll tell you that the next few months present to us the undisputed king of all Capital Region seasons.

They come out at night, dare open your eyes. 

The zombies and clowns that threaten our lives.

We love a good scare on a cool weekend night. 

From ziplines to hayrides here are all things that fright! 

What would fall be without these Capital Region hair-raising haunts and attractions that scare the daylights out of us?  Here are some of the area's best-rated haunted attractions and their opening weekends as well as ticket information.

The Zombie Zip Line at Mountain Ridge Adventure in Schenectady Opens the First Weekend in October.

This is from their website: Imagine being alone 70+’ in the air, in total blackness, not knowing how long the zip line is or when it will end, to then be caught by an evil ZOMBIE as you land in horror. But wait … Mountain Ridge Adventure’s zip line park has 10 zip lines. After your first fright flight on zip line #1 you will be begging for mercy but by the time you reach zip line #10 you just may have to change your clothes (diapers available upon request).
