Meet the Headless Horseman Himself

Are you ready to be scared out of your mind? 
Horseman’s Hollow, a haunted experience unlike any other, takes the tale of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow to its darkest extremes. For 12 October evenings, historic Philipsburg Manor transforms into a terrifying landscape ruled by vampires, witches, undead soldiers, ghouls, and ghosts, all serving the Headless Horseman himself!
Philipsburg Manor is at 381 North Broadway (Route 9), Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. The dates are October 8-9, 14-16, 21-23, and 27-30.
Visitors begin walking a haunted trail, stumbling upon scary scenes of a town driven mad by the Headless Horseman. The Hollow’s unfortunate inhabitants are all too ready to keep visitors from ever leaving. 
Creatures, some human and some not, lurk in the shadows, ready to terrify the unsuspecting, while incredible special effects disorient and unsettle. Heads will roll …. maybe even your own!
Those who survive the haunted trail must still negotiate the Horseman’s Lair, where hungry Hessians feast on rotting, bloody corpses of unlucky visitors.
This is Sleepy Hollow’s premiere haunted attraction, right in the heart of the village. Stocked with professional actors and state-of-the-art special effects, Horseman’s Hollow has a very high fear factor.
On the same dates, at the Old Dutch Church in Sleepy Hollow, master storyteller Jonathan Kruk offers a dramatic re-telling of Washington Irving’s classic tale, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, featuring the Headless Horseman, Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones, and Katrina Van Tassel. Flavored with live spooky organ music by Jim Keyes, Kruk’s storytelling captivates all audiences. The ghostly ‘White Lady’ makes a special appearance.
