1. Located in Chillicothe, Spider Hill at Three Sisters Park is nothing short of a Halloween haven. Spider Hill is home to Massacre Mansion, an 8,000-square-foot haunted house and the Trail of Terror, a bloodcurdling tour through the dark woods. This year, Spider Hill is introducing the Zombie Invasion, where you act like a zombie hunter and shoot zombies with a paintball gun. If that doesn’t sound like a Halloween dream come true, I don’t know what does. Tickets are $10 for the house and trail, and Zombie Invasion tickets are $15.
