THE GLOW :: A Jack O’Lantern Experience


THE GLOW is lighting up October like never before giving pumpkins their night in the spot light! This family-friendly event also features live carving demonstrations and fall food & beverages!

THE GLOW features an enchanting and unforgettable wonderland of more than 5,000 hand carved, illuminated pumpkins transformed into beautiful landscapes, iconic figures and larger than life structures.

Come stroll down Jack’s Lane, a 1/3 of a mile jack o’ lantern trail where you’ll experience everything from intricately detailed single pumpkin carvings to amazing scenes created by our talented artists!

THE GLOW isn’t a place to expect frights and ghouls, but you will scream with delight to see pumpkins come to life as you wander into Prehistoric Park where you’ll stare up into the golden eyes of sixteen- foot tall dinosaurs or yell ARRRGG!! as you see pumpkins crash amongst the ghostly pirate ship. Your favorite movie stars, superheroes and even some princesses come to life through the jack o’ lantern magic.

Experience fall like you never have before! THE GLOW is sure to become an annual event each and every Halloween season.


Hartwood Acres Park October 4-28, 2018

Autism-Friendly Evening

On this day and time, we welcome the autism community and those who may need some extra care for a very special GLOW experience at a very special discount. During this trail time, the sun has gone down but it’s not the full dark we usually open for, the crowds are a little smaller, the music a little lower, and the atmosphere a little brighter. We hope that setting aside times just for you helps everyone to enjoy THE GLOW!

 This trail time is closed to the general public and we ask that guests email us or PM us for the CODE but we can freely give it (this is just to serve as a double check that the right people get access).

Adult Tickets: $14.99
 Kids Tickets (3-12 years): $10.99
