Middletown Is One Of Delaware’s Best Halloween Towns To Visit This Fall

Middletown, Delaware, is a small Delaware town that’s known for its charming main street and busy business district — and also, the creepy white silo with glowing red eyes that sits just off of the road on the outskirts of town. Year round, the silo spooks those who don’t expect it, but in the fall, the Silo’s glowing eyes signal the opening of the top Delaware scream park, Frightland. Plan a visit to the park to see how innocent Middletown becomes the best Halloween town in Delaware.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Check the Frightland calendar for the dates and times they are open for the season, and to buy tickets. You’ll be contributing to the less spooky side of medical research by attending — a portion of ticket proceeds and all of the parking proceeds go to the Leukemia Research Foundation of Delaware.
