New York's headless horseman haunted drive-thru is offering a children's day

For little horror fans...or adults who are too scared.

The Headless Horseman and his creepy counterparts are toning it down for the kids this Halloween. (So sweet!) 

In Ulster Park, New York, the Headless Horseman Haunted Hayrides and Haunted Houses is gearing up for a fright-filled drive-thru experience for adults. However, it's more about smiles than screams during its Children's Day event, which will take place Oct 11 and 24 from 11:30am–3pm. (Rain dates are Oct 11 and Oct 25.) 

Families can expect to drive through an I Spy-like Halloween game in their vehicles and encounter spooky (but fun!) characters along the way. Then they'll be able to park their cars and enjoy more fall festivities, including a maze, a haunted garden, seasonal tunes and more cool things to do. Like most Halloween events this year, reservations are required ($11.95 tickets are available online) and new safety protocols will be in place.

Even if your little horror aficionado can handle the scariest Halloween movies for kids and adults alike, keep in mind that the main event is 13+. For more ways to enjoy the drive-thru trend without the clowns or cranium-lacking villains, hit the Orange County Drive-Thru Fair Food Festival to (safely) get your funnel cake and fried Oreo fix.
