Spooky Nights



Join us for Spooky Nights -- a spook-tacular event that supports Shelby Farms Park Conservancy! 

2016 Dates coming soon!

Tickets for all attractions can be purchased at the event, or in advance at www.ticketmaster.com

 Spooky Nights is open rain or shine unless otherwise noted for inclement weather. Inclement weather closing will be announced on Facebook, Twitter and on this web page.

Haunted Trail (ages 12+): $12 per person

The Pine Forest of Shelby Farms Park is transformed into the only haunted trail in Memphis! Are you brave enough to handle over 1 mile of scares

Nocturnal Nature Hikes (all ages): $10 per family (free for Park Members)

For those looking for a fun, but not frightening activity, guided nocturnal nature hikes will be held on a separate trail. These hikes are a great way to experience wildlife at night. In addition to the wildlife, hike leaders will teach participants how to use their night vision and other senses to navigate in the night.

Zombie Laser Tag + Walker range: $5 per person, per game

For a high-energy experience, be sure to check out zombie laser tag or zombie paintball shooting range. Who will win - humans or zombies? 

zombie paintball hayride (all ages): $20 per person | $25 for Zombie Truck

Experience a new attraction at Spooky Nights that is sure to scare up some fun! Climb aboard a trailer that is specially outfitted with paintball equipment and try to conquer zombies! Don't worry--the zombies aren't coordinated enough to use the paintball equipment, so you'll have the upper hand! For more information, click here.

Headless Horseman Hayrides: $8 per person

Take a family-friendly hayride through the Park, but be on the lookout for the legend himself!

Pumpkin Painting: $7 per large pumpkin | $5 per small pumpkin
