Creep says:  The only reason we were able to be recognized for this Beastie Award…I mean Bestie, is due to the incredible design crew and amazing actors who took on the part of the characters to entertain, scare and intrigue the more than 5000 people who were brave enough to attend.

Howe Caverns nabbed an impressive Bestie for Seasonal Event after hosting its first ever totally immersive haunted cave tour. The experience turned its beautiful show cave into The Underworld at Howe Caverns last fall, leading up to Halloween. Only the bravest entered a world of creatures, monsters, and demons 156 feet below the Earth’s surface. The Underworld at Howe Caverns exceeded expectations in its first year, with sold out evenings and rave reviews. Now, the caverns’ award-winning creative production team is already hard at work on the 2021 Underworld, which will run weekends in the month of October. Of course, Howe Caverns offers Traditional Cave Tours all year long, along with its state-of-the-art escape room, Howe To Escape!

Just Some Of The Fun Last Year!
