Anakeesta’s Legend of Hallow Mountain Coming This Fall!

A Frightfully Good Time!

Each weekend, September 13th – November 2nd, Anakeesta will host Gatlinburg’s Premier Halloween Event, The Legend of Hallow Mountain. The undead souls of Hallow Mountain rise, bringing frights, lights, scares and dares. Even better, guests visiting Anakeesta can experience Hallow Mountain at no additional charge.

Anakeesta takes Halloween scare to the next level! Dare to stay after dark when the undead rise, seeking their way off of Hallow Mountain. Additionally, you can find your level of fear in one of the scare zones or take in a black and white classic movie on the outdoor screen at the Overlook Beer Garden!  Be sure to also add on a ticket for Zombie Ziplining and immerse yourself in the forest nightlife!

The Legend of Hallow Mountain 

Long ago, Anakeesta Mountain was a sacred and hallowed ground where souls of the dead would be freed and transformed into fireflies. Their guiding lights would join their ancestors and provide a path for future souls to follow.

100 years ago, the peace of this hallowed place was disturbed when settlers arrived to build homes and establish graveyards. As a result, Hallow Mountain was forever desecrated. The tormented souls of the settlers buried here would never rest!

Each year, during the harvest moon, the lost souls of the anguished settlers become the undead, rising from their graves, and desperately searching for a way off Hallow Mountain.

Will the fireflies prevent you from leaving Anakeesta’s Hallow Mountain?  Are you brave enough to enter?  Will you be lucky enough to survive?

Looking for a little less scare? Enjoy family friendly crafts, activities, not so spooky character visits and, sweet treats during the Fall season.
