5 Activities to Add to Your Fall Bucket List

1. Wilkerson Farm in Orem

One of the standout attractions at Wilkerson Farm this year is the brand new 45-foot Ferris wheel. While many pumpkin patches offer traditional activities, this one takes it up a notch with carnival-style rides. It’s not just about the pumpkins; it’s about an interactive, kid-friendly experience. From hayrides to live animals, Wilkerson Farm ensures that kids of all ages have a blast.

2. Kuwahara Pumpkin Patch and Thriller Park

If you’re seeking a pumpkin patch with a twist, Kuwahara Pumpkin Patch and Thriller Park might be your perfect destination. They offer live stage shows, interactive Halloween Village experiences, and corn mazes with live actors. It’s a place where you can enjoy some thrills during the day, thanks to its daytime attractions, or amp up the fear factor by going after dark. The Halloween Village is a photographer’s dream, with its enchanting atmosphere that’s reminiscent of Harry Potter.

3. Dark Nightmare in Huntsville

For those thrill-seekers who want a dose of adrenaline during this season, Dark Nightmare is the place to be. It’s a professional-level haunted house that’s guaranteed to send shivers down your spine. While it’s not for the faint of heart, it’s perfect for teenagers and adults looking for a good scare. The haunted house operates on select dates, including the 20th, 21st, 27th, and 28th, so mark your calendars if you dare. Remember, part of the proceeds from this spooky adventure goes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

4. Southern Utah Halloween Haunts

If you’re planning a trip to St. George for fall break, you’re in for a treat! There’s a Facebook group called the “Southern Utah Halloween Haunts,” which provides a map of homes that go all out with Halloween decorations. Drive around and explore this treasure trove of creatively themed houses. It’s a delightful and spooky experience, perfect for the whole family. Get into the Halloween spirit and enjoy the Halloween house displays all over the town.
