Halloween In Wyoming: A MapQuest Guide
From zombie parades and costume contests to haunted houses and hayrides (to haunted anything!), the Halloween season casts its spell and awakens our inner ghouls and goblins. As part of FrightQuest -- a MapQuest series on spooky destinations and activities -- here are three options to celebrate Halloween in Wyoming that are sure to be a scream.

Glenn Murphy's Outdoor Haunted House
Glenn Murphy's Outdoor Haunted House in Wyoming was started by the Murphy couple in the 1970s as a way to get to know their neighbors. Hundreds of locals and people from out of town line up to participate in the family-run spooktacular that accommodates guests of all ages. Special signals are given when very small children are coming through to minimize frights that may be too much. The event takes place each year at the end of October.

Snow King Halloween Bash
The Snow King Halloween Bash is an annual affair that is also a fundraiser for the Community Children's Project in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Guests 21 and older can dress up in costumes and dance the night away, and perhaps win titles for best group costume, best male/female costume and sexiest costume. The cost is $15 each, and there is a cash bar. The event takes place at the end of October at the Snow King Resort.

Ghost Tours Of Laramie City
If you like your ghosts and goblins with spurs and boots, be sure to catch the ghost tour of Laramie City, a popular annual Halloween Wyoming attraction. The two-part tour lasts about an hour and a half and runs through the month of October. The tour begins at the Territorial Prison with a sinister tour guide, includes a hayride through downtown Laramie and takes guests on a tour of other spooky haunts. It is recommended that guests buy tickets in advance, as time slots fill up quickly.
