Hal­loween haunts take over Rossville’s amuse­ment park

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - FRONT PAGE - STAFF RE­PORT

Lake Win­nepe­saukah amuse­ment park has been thrilling guests for more than 90 years with at­trac­tions like the Can­non Ball roller coaster and the OH-Zone.

In October, how­ever, the fam­ily amuse­ment park of­fers a dif­fer­ent kind of thrills and chills with hair-rais­ing Hal­loween fun for boys and ghouls of all ages dur­ing Lake Win­nepeSpookah. The theme park thriller opens Fri­day, Oct. 6, and will con­tinue each Fri­day and Satur­day through October, in ad­di­tion to one Sun­day night, Oct. 29.

Guests this month at Lake Win­nepeSpookah will be im­mersed in the dark sur­prises that await in Af­ter­math. They will be sur­rounded by the haunt­ing after- ef­fects of fires that rav­aged a leg­endary car­ni­val fair­ground that may have stood in the area.

“When walk­ing through Af­ter­math, the para­nor­mal is all around you,” de­scribes Tal­ley Green, park spokes­woman. “The spirits from a leg­endary fire re­main ever-present in the ashes of what hap­pened in 1880.”

The faint of heart need not fear, for along with the ter­ri­fy­ing scares of the Af­ter­math, there will be plenty of fun, laugh­ter and sur­prises all over the park for all ages. The park’s pop­u­lar an­tique carousel, stom­ach-churn­ing Twis­ter and other rides will be open for guests to en­joy un­der the night sky. Un­lim­ited rides are in­cluded in park ad­mis­sion of $26.
