10 Adrenaline-Pumping Halloween Happenings
If you’re looking to get spooked, these haunted houses and trails are worth the drive.
Thursdays and Fridays 3-10 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.-10 p.m., through Oct. 31
Gravensteen Haunted Productions—founded by Army dentist and self-proclaimed “hauntrepreneur” Jon Libbesmeier, who got his start creating spooky attractions for troops while stationed in Germany—is known for its frightening walk-through houses. This year though, Libbesmeier and co-organizers Garland Travis and Ryan McGrath decided to try something different: a Halloween Selfie Museum. The space opened Sept. 13 with the hope that its 30 “stop-and-smile-for-the-camera” photo opps would encourage visitors to really see and interact with each scene and its resident ghouls. (Anyone who’s visited a haunted house knows that at some point, all you want to do is run until you reach the exit.) The museum will be open the entire week of Halloween, including 3-10 p.m. Oct. 28 and Oct. 29 and 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Oct. 30 and Halloween. // 7952 Tysons Corner Center, McLean
