Frightening and Fun-filled Festivities

The Woodgrove High School student body is always up for good scares and fall horrors.

Almost half of the Woodgrove students said they were not planning to Trick or Treat. For those students who are not Trick or Treating, the Woodgrove Outlander has ideas for how students can spend their time this Spooktober.

Fields of Fear is a great option for students willing to take a short road trip to Cox Farms, located in Centreville, VA. Enjoy spooky activities, including a Dark Side Hayride, a corn maze of horrors, and a forest filled with jump scares. On a Friday or Saturday night from September 24th through November 6th from 7:30-11, experience the terrors here.

Another option for students to enjoy the spooky season is the Family Drive-In located in Stephens City, VA. Being one of the last drive-in movie theaters in Virginia, this is a rare opportunity. While this drive-in is open most of the year showing various genres, during the October month, Halloween movies haunt every screen. The Family Drive-In is a sure way to channel a 1950s night on the town. 

One of the more spine-chilling options offered in the area is Shocktober, located in Leesburg, VA. Shocktober is named the fifth scariest haunted house in the United States. Not only can you experience a good scare, you can also give back to the community. While a terrifying and fun experience, Shocktober is also a fundraiser for a nonprofit organization working towards providing opportunities for people with disabilities. There are multiple admission options, but if your group of friends is six or more people, you can visit this spooky site for $35.
