Every year in October, I travel to the Historic Hudson Valley to see the Headless Horseman in Sleepy Hollow. It is one of the best attractions ever in a forest filled with creepy "undead". The festivities begin with a walk through the forest where the fear of the unknown jumps out at you and it only gets better from there. Every year it changes which makes it the most amazing place to be during Halloween. I dare you to take a trip and write a ghoulish review....BOO

We're just back from a weekend in Sleepy Hollow. We did the Horseman's Hollow tour on Sunday night. As a woman in my 40's, I'm not a big fan of being scared out of my mind and being chased by chainsaws anymore. If you want that, go to Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando. Horseman's Hollow isn't like that. In fact, it's just the right amount of scary but the perfect amount of costuming, atmosphere and set design.

What could be better than walking through an authentic 17th century manor, on a beautiful fall night, under an almost-full moon in October. The entire walk lasts nearly 40 minutes. It's quite amazing the amount of time and resources they put into each scene's set design and costuming. For a small place, it rivals anything I've seen at Universal Studios.

But don't get me wrong. There are definitely scream-worthy moments, and even more freakier moments, but it could be waaaay scarier. I'd say kids over 12 could handle it. And I didn't have any nightmares that night afterwards. I'd go again.

The Haunted Hollow was very professionally done! The detail and the actors were phenomenal. It made me jump and scream involuntarily several times! I will say that it's not for the faint of heart! There was an elderly mother- middle-aged daughter duo just ahead of us and the daughter (not the mother!) had to abort. We definitely got out money's worth!

Walking through the grounds of the Philipsburg Manor in Halloween is an excellent idea. Fun for the whole family.
