Zombie Apocalypse to Strike Blue Mountain Ski Area, Palmerton, PA, Sept 28-Oct 31

September 16, 2012

Something horrible has happened: an extended family of inbred zombies has invaded beautiful Blue Mountain Ski Area this Halloween. You can run, you can hide, but what would be the fun in that? Experience “Terror on the Mountain,” the region’s newest Halloween attraction, at Blue Mountain Ski Area on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from Sept. 28 to Oct. 31.

“The zombie apocalypse is underway and it’s pretty gruesome,” said Heidi Lutz, marketing director at Blue Mountain Ski Area. “We’ve set up a zombie butcher shop and turned our stunning lodge into a meat locker for human flesh. Our picturesque mountain has become the perfect playground for thrills and chills this Halloween.”

Zombies are terrorizing two areas at Blue Mountain – the 3,600 square-foot lodge and 1.4-mile haunted hayride. Ticket prices and times are as follows:

Haunted Lodge $10
Times: Fridays (7 p.m. to 10 p.m.) Saturdays and Sundays (noon to 10 p.m.)

Haunted Hayride $15
Times: Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (7 p.m. to 10 p.m.)

Combination Ticket $20
Includes both Haunted Hayride and Haunted Lodge

Brave visitors can save $2 if they purchase their tickets online at For more information, visit the website or call 610-826-7700.

Terror on the Mountain isn’t for little kids, but if you want to take the entire family somewhere fun this Halloween, Blue Mountain Ski Area has you covered with its “Mountain Harvest Festival.” Featuring a four-acre corn maze and scavenger hunt, pumpkin painting, pumpkin patch hayride and great food, the Mountain Harvest Festival is open on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 7 p.m. beginning Sept. 15.
