There's something to scare everyone this Halloween. NY1's Valarie D'Elia filed the following report.

Kids 12 and younger can visit Hershey's Trick-or-Treat Adventure, starting at Hershey's Chocolate World and continuing deep inside Hersheypark in Treatville, a virtual village of sweets and treats.

Six Flags Great Adventure’s Fright Fest in Jackson, New Jersey features family-friendly thrills by day and a zombie-filled fright by night.

The scare factor is turned on full force with Howl-O-Scream 2014 at Busch Gardens Tampa & Williamsburg, with unexpected terrors around every corner with hundreds of "undead" creatures lurking.

For guests 10 and over, Cranmore Mountain in New Hampshire goes back to "ghoul" with the return of Ghoullog's Mercer Home for the Criminally Insane taking place on weekend nights through November 1.

Families staying at the Woodloch Pines resort in the Poconos this October can hop on board the Haunted Hayrides. Don’t let nature fool you, as there is terror behind every tree—but you will find more soothing seasonal activities such as pumpkin carving, costume contests and warm apple cider. 

The Big Apple gets a Halloween bite with the Haunted Pumpkin Garden at the New York Botanical Garden. Get some creative ideas on how to carve your own pumpkin from the imaginative display at the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, where kids can play inside the Pumpkin House.

The age old Mexican tradition of honoring the Dead known as Dia de los Muertos takes place at El Museo del Barrio where activities include face painting, storytelling, and dance performances.

Trick or treat inside the Museum of Natural History while enjoying live performances, arts and crafts and mingling with costumed characters.
