With fall creeping in and the temperatures dipping, it’s time to get your thinking caps on. After all, there is an abundance of activities you could partake in to make the most of this spooky season. Aside from going apple-picking, carving pumpkins, and making costumes, there are many other activities that can be added to your list of seasonal favorites. If you’re looking for some spooky new things to do this Halloween, we got you covered! Here are our top 5 picks of Halloween activities for teens that will keep you screaming with excitement (in a good way).
Organize a Scavenger Hunt
If you’re hosting a Halloween party with your friends, a scavenger hunt is a great idea to add to the agenda. It’s a creative twist on the classic party game of “pin the tail on the donkey”, so you and your friends will be laughing all night long! To organize a great scavenger hunt, you first need to get a good idea of what you’d like to include in the hunt. Are you and your friends going trick-or-treating in your neighborhood? If so, you could use the houses you visit as clues. You could also get creative with your ideas. Maybe you have a friend who owns a candy shop and you’re looking for unique candy to sample. If that’s the case, make sure to use the address of the shop as your clue!
Go On A Ghost Tour
There are plenty of ghost tours that you can check out in your area. These tours are guided walks that often end in haunted houses. Looking for an interactive experience? Well, you can also sign up for a ghost hunt, which is an event where participants investigate paranormal activity using various pieces of equipment. If you’re in New York City, you can sign up for a tour of the city’s most haunted places.
There is a full list of tours available on Halloween night (and many other nights throughout the year). You and your friends can choose whatever tour best suits your spooky needs. If you’re in London, you can book a tour departing from Westminster, or a tour departing from Victoria. There are also tours available in Paris and Barcelona, which are both great cities to visit during the fall season.
Horror Movie Marathon
Nothing is more delightfully delicious than a scary movie on a cold autumn night while you’re snuggled up on the couch with a bunch of blankets. You could try out a classic film from the horror genre. Otherwise, you can check out a modern-day classic that’s sure to get your blood pumping. If you’re a fan of classic horror, you can check out The Exorcist, The Shining, or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, just to name a few. If you’re a fan of modern-day horror, you can try Get Out, IT, or The Sixth Sense. What’s great about watching a horror movie is that you don’t have to be outside in the cold to do it. You can watch a movie at home with your friends or family members, or you can even go on a movie marathon at the theater.
Grab your favourite Lenso Space projector and make the event all the more exciting. It has 16GB built-in-memory. Enjoy a clear and bright image for your Halloween marathon!
Try Out Virtual Reality Games
If you and your friends have always wanted to play a horror-themed game, you can visit a virtual reality (VR) arcade in your area. Try out games such as Zombie Wonderland 3D, Paranormal Activity VR, or Blackout Haunted. You don’t have to visit a VR arcade to try VR games, though. So, grab your VR headset, download and play horror-themed games on your computer. Prefer to play on your phone? Well then use your mobile device and enjoy them in the comfort of your own home.
If you and your friends do decide to visit a VR arcade, make sure to check out their menu of games and book your tickets in advance. VR arcades are often super busy during the Halloween season, so you don’t want to show up and be disappointed that you can’t play any of the games because they’re all booked up.
Go On A Haunted Walk
Visiting a haunted walk is a great way to get into the Halloween spirit if you don’t have the time or energy to organize a large event with your friends. Haunted walks are guided tours of spooky locations. You can visit a haunted house, see a movie shoot, or even walk through a cemetery. Some haunted walks are even open on Halloween night, so you can take advantage of the holiday festivities. There are haunted walks available in many major cities, such as New York City, London, and Paris. You can check out your city’s online calendar for haunted events to find out what events are taking place during the Halloween season. You can even sign up for newsletters from organizations you like to stay up-to-date on upcoming events.
