Always check with the haunt’s official website or social media before heading out. Dates sometimes get added or removed. Or both, in the case of Winterset’s Zombie Hollow. From their Facebook page:
We’ve switched up our calendar a bit. We took out Thursday the 26th but added Sunday the 29th. Friday night is looking dry and just right! Come on out, grab a hot chocolate at Nick’s Kettle Korn located right at our front entrance and carry it with you as you enjoy the show! By Tuesday, we may be adding Christmas lights if the snow keeps up! ????????????❄️

Barnum Circus of Freaks also posted about adding an extra night this week.
For outdoor events, weather may also be a concern, with rain expected today and a potential to see some snow this weekend. Carlisle’s Haunted Woods has posted about potentially changing hours due to weather. Outdoor events such as these (and Sleepy Hollow, and Adventureland, and Trail of Terror, and…) can be impacted by wet or color weather.
10/20/2023 Update: I will be re-uploading this video soon. The last time I made one of these videos, I was using my 2012 model MacBook. This one was done on a different machine, and I realize now I did not have the proper font installed for my titles. The overlay text I normally use also does not work for vertical videos (it shows up off the screen and cannot be moved). I need to figure out how to make that work. Or, just stop shooting vertical video 😉
Here is a video interview with Lew Jordan of Zombie Hollow in Winterset, Iowa. It was recorded on Saturday, October 14th, 2023. I’d like to send big thank you to Lew and his crew for their hospitality.
Side Note: I believe this is the first video interview I have done since 2017, so I am a bit rusty. It is also the first time I have recorded and edited vertical video. Apologies to those of you who like to view video the way it was meant to be seen… 😉
Follow my new-ish YouTube channel for other videos, which will eventually include all my old interview videos as I find them and get them uploaded.
