Fall In Kansas City - Things To Do

A distinct chill descends upon Kansas City after the sun sets in the fall. As families gather together to carve pumpkins and sip cider, something more sinister lurks in the shadows. That hair on the back of your neck? It’s standing up because of the city’s ghoulish collection of haunted houses and chilling experiences, including The Beast, Edge of Hell, Macabre Cinema, plus Worlds of Fun's signature Halloween Hauntand more. Combined with KC’s pioneering use of the “open format,” which allows visitors to wander without a predestined path, the city has earned the moniker of “The Haunted House Capital of the World,” making it one of the best places to visit during Halloween season.

One of the many benefits of being located in the middle of the country is that fall harvests are a bountiful affair. If you’re looking to carve jack-o-lanterns, pick out your pumpkin at Carolyn’s Country Cousins Pumpkin Patchin Liberty or Faulkner's Ranch and Pumpkin Farm, located south of I-470 on Raytown Road in Kansas City.
