Halloween in Rhode Island

Everyone knows that New England is the place to visit in the Fall.  The leaves have changed to beautiful colors, there is a refreshing chill in the air, and smells of home made cider and pies can be found everywhere.  Lands End Limousines invites you to come to Newport, RI to experience this beauty.

Newport is rich with history including pirate lore and hauntings. What better place to visit this time of year!  Halloween activities for all ages can be found and Lands End Limousines can bring you to them.

Here is just a sampling of the spooky thrills you will find:

Venture through the historic Fort's Tunnels of Terror or investigate its paranormal history on a legitimate Ghost Hunt at the Fortress of Nightmares in Newport.  Also in Newport, is The Haunted Shipyard.  Be one of the first brave souls to set foot inside the barred gates of The Haunted Shipyard. Experience the dread and terror that linger down each gangway as your former yard hand reluctantly escorts you through each ghastly room. An all-ages destination including a Scare-Free, Lights-On Kids Area.

Providence, RI offers a Creepy, Crawly, Family Fun Weekend at the Roger Williams Park.  Take a look at the gross creepy and crawly things that make Halloween special with spooky activities and Museum creature features!  Head over to the Children's Museum for a Boo Bash.  Play bewitching games galore, have hands-on fun with imaginative arts and witch crafts, explore an eerie environment, mix it up in the mad scientists laboratory and much more.

For a real fright, head over to Cumberland, RI for the Haunted Hill.  Deep in the woods, you and your group will be sent through some of the scariest scenes your mind can't even imagine!

Pirate walks and ghost tours are given year round in these parts.  One can only imagine what Halloween time brings!

Roger William Park Zoo Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

Lands End Limousine invites you to experience the glow of thousands of pumpkins, set in a magical display of artistry during a night-time Spectacular and feast your eyes on hundreds of artfully carved jack-o-lanterns depicting people, places and scenes from popular culture to old-time favorites and everything in between – all with painstaking detail and amazing intricacy! 

All-new theme for 2011! The theme of this year’s show will be “A Journey Around the World.” It will include scenes from the Seven Wonders of the World (Taj Mahal, the pyramids and Sphinx, Mayan ruins, the Great Wall of China, and others) as well as representations of nations around the world, including a “European Vacation” and a trip through the Great White North complete with falling “snow”! And of course the famed centerpiece of the display, the “Laughing Tree,” will be back in all its spooky splendor. Visitors will be dazzled by hundreds of glowing jack-o-lanterns on the ground and in the branches, from tiny sugar pumpkins to gigantic gourds reaching up to 1600 pounds!

The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular will take place from October 6 to October 31, 2011.  The Spectacular will be open nightly, rain or shine, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Ticket sales will open at 6:00 p.m. each night. Individual tickets may also be purchased at the gate from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for use the same evening.  Click here for pricing.  Proceeds from the Spectacular will support the Zoo's education and conservation efforts as well as Zoo improvements.
