If you’re looking for a spine-tingling adventure this Halloween, one way to do it is to hop a private jet to the one of the scariest places in the country. Some of them are more easily accessed if you fly by private jet, while others will get you in and out more safely, not to mention faster and easier if you choose a jet charter. While tourist attractions, especially outdoor ones, are opening up, be sure to check all COVID-19 protocols for each location before you leave so you are thoroughly prepared. Of course with RAI Jets, you will fly the safest way possible—by private jet! Here are our top five scary places to visit this Halloween!
1. Salem, Massachusetts
Salem is a beautiful town, colored with a dark history. Famous for the Salem Witch Trials in 1692, Salem is one of the top destinations year-round, but especially at Halloween. Throughout the month of October, the town recognizes its history with a variety of events called Haunted Happenings. You can partake in costume balls, parades, witches’ circle, street fairs, and historical tours. Flying by private jet this Halloween to Salem will leave you spellbound, in a good way.
2. Sleepy Hollow, New York
Every October, Sleepy Hollow lives up to its legend, transforming into a creepy destination haunted by vampires, ghosts, and of course, the headless horseman. Walk in the shoes of Ichabod Crane through the haunted trail but beware what lurks in the shadows. If you are traveling with kids, we suggest skipping the trail and taking in the Jack O’ Lantern blaze. The
Great Jack O’ Lantern blaze features thousands of illuminated, professionally-carved, pumpkin works of art with a synchronized light show to captivate kids of all ages. Looking for something scarier? Try the cemetery tours or a haunted hayride. What better way to spend Halloween than the setting for one of America’s iconic ghost stories!
3. Universal Studios, Hollywood, California
Some people say the most realistic haunted houses in the United States are found at Universal Studios, Hollywood. After a cancellation of Halloween Horror Nights last year, the studio is back and better than ever. The tinseltown magic is sure to impress and send chills down your spine. New haunts this year are, “Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives” and “The Haunting of Hill House.” There are also the returning, gory attractions like “The Exorcist” maze, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers,” “The Curse of Pandora’s Box” and “The Walking Dead.”
4. Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston is one of the most haunted cities in the country and has also been the site of many horror films, including Halloween (2018). The historic battery district has many haunted happenings and untold stories. If you really want a truly ghostly experience, take the Haunted Jail Tour. The Old City Jail once incarcerated some of the most infamous criminals from 1802-1939. Thousands of men, woman, and children, guilty or not, died within the walls of the jail, where their unsettled spirits linger still today.
There are also parades, concerts, and carnivals throughout the month of October for families and jetsetters like yourself to enjoy.
5. New Orleans, Louisiana
Considered one of America’s most haunted cities, New Orleans does Halloween like no one else. Second only to Mardi Gras, Halloween in New Orleans draws thousands to the city each year. Everyone is invited to the “Krewe of BOO” party with the vampires, zombies, ghosts, and goblins that parade down Frenchman street in a dazzling display of costumes and revelry. Get lost in the history and hauntings where many have claimed other worldly occurrences and voodoo are afoot, such as the burial site of voodoo priestess Marie Laveau, where followers have left offerings since her passing in 1881.
For an extra chill, check out the Scout Island Park, open to all ages in the day, but turning into a haunted haven at night, or a trip to the unique mortuary haunted house, known for its professional, movie-style effects.
