Halloween Activities 2018 in Brainerd MN

Haunted Hidden Hollows

17553 State Highway 18

Paul Bunyan Land may be closed for the regular season, but that just means more opportunities for thrills and chills during October! The corn maze and haunted house will be open 7-10 p.m. every Friday and Saturday in October. Last year’s cost per entry was $14 for the Corn Maze, $10 for the Haunted Mansion, or $22 for a combo pack. Current prices were not posted at time of writing, but we are guessing it will be roughly the same. Be warned that this is the scariest attraction we were able to find in our area!

From 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, October 13 children of all ages can enjoy this free pumpkin festival. Children can participate in activities according to three different age brackets. In 2017 some activities included pie eating, pie throwing, pumpkin rolling, and races of all kinds. Food and beverages will be available to purchase.
