Cypress Gardens is getting in on the Halloween fun with "Halloween in the Swamp" on October 18, 19 and 20 from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m.

The Haunted Swamp Experience takes place on the Blackwater Swamp with a haunted boat ride before being dropped off to return on a spooktacular walking trail through the woods. According to the Cypress Gardens' website, children ages 5 and under are not allowed in the haunted event, ages 6-12 with parental permission only.

If you aren't feeling so brave or have children with you, there is family Halloween fun planned as well. Roast marshmallows around a camp fire while hearing stories or talk a stroll down the lighted Pumpkin Trail. There will even be a jump castle, music and food.

For tickets, call (843) 553-0515.
