We attended the Sleepy Hollow ride on Oct 6. It was a really great experience. Starts a little slow, but gets more exciting. A little boy in front of us (maybe 6 or 7) couldn't decide if he was spooked or not. He kept putting...More

We really enjoyed the experience, harvest moon, clear dark night, spooky story, and the arrival of the headless horseman. My granddaughter announced that she wants to do it again.

On our ride we had a simple lunch. Turkey sandwich, chips and fruit. Very good, but not a Chuck Wagon meal. Perhaps you're looking at a different ride than what we did. I would think mid October would be beautiful.
