October is here, and that means a lot of fall fun in Middle Tennessee! As the daylight gets shorter, the lush green hills of Nashville will begin a slow change in color from summer green to autumn gold and brown.

With that, let’s look at some activities that will be a breath of fresh air this fall…literally.

Looking for that action packed Halloween adventure? Ring Farm in Columbia, TN asks the question “Can you survive against the Horde?”. Join them weekends for their yearly Zombie Paintball and fight your way through waves of the walking dead. But don’t worry, if this is too intense for you, Ring Farm offers a lighter side with a corn maze, pumpkin patch, and much more suited for the younger crowd.

If you’re wanting to focus on fall family fun, than checkout Batey Farms in Murfreesboro, TN, featuring their massive Charlotte’s Web themed corn maze. After escaping the tangled maze, don’t miss their classic hayride or pumpkin patch. Climb the hay tower, or relax in front of their firepits, there is plenty for the family to do at Batey Farms.

On October 21st, 22nd, 28th and 29th Short Mountain Distillery will be hosting their Haunted Woods event in Woodbury, TN. Along with the Haunted Woods, they will be throwing a FREE Halloween party/rock concert and dance party on October 29th. Party and scream your night away. But don’t forget, you’re screams are going to a good cause, all proceeds go to benefit the Short Mountain Volunteer Fire Department and the Cannon County Rescue Squad.

The Curse, The Portal, The Crypt, and Freak Out Escape games, 4 haunted attractions that will test your fears and your mind. One of Middle Tennessee’s most popular haunts, Dead Land Scream Park wants to push you to your limits Fridays and Saturdays this fall. If you manage to make it through alive, a warm bonfire, fresh concessions, and a family-friendly atmosphere awaits you.

You have sixty minutes. Can you lift the curse? Can you find the antidote? Can you beat the clock? Beat the Clock is Nashville’s premier escape game facility. Located in Franklin, TN, Beat the Clock wants to know if your family night out, your corporate team building event, your birthday party can solve their mind bending puzzles.
