When Chattanooga transforms itself to ChattaBOOga! In October, it's not the typical haunted city.

For more mild experiences, families can enjoy 10-acre enchanted MAiZE; superhero drivers carving pumpkins underwater; spooky rides abroad a haunted vintage train; trick-or-treating around zoo animals; and frightening fun on haunted amusement park rides.
