The tallest monument in America will become the spookiest monument when the Gateway Arch transforms into a family-friendly Halloween party full of tricks and treats. Kids may want to bring some jokes (because that’s how St. Louis trick-or-treats) and we will supply gift bags for all to collect candy throughout the evening!
Frights & Heights features:
- Trick or Tram: Experience scary sights on the one-of-a-kind 630-foot ride to the top of the Arch.
- Freaky Face Painting: Look hauntingly good after a little makeover from one of our face painters.
- Boo-loon Animals: Bring your favorite creepy crawlers to life.
- Freaky Fudge: If you’ve got the guts for it, try some Halloween-themed specialty fudge flavors.
- Creepy Crafts: Express yourself on your very own pumpkin craft and more.
- Live Music: A Halloween dance party with a DJ will take over the Arch mezzanine.
- Puppet Shows in the Tucker Theater: Lewis and Clark describe their adventure in the west and share some spooky and true stories from the trails (showtimes: 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.; 20-minute show).
- Free Cruise: Every child will receive a free one-hour St. Louis Riverfront Cruise ticket from the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch.
- Share on Social Media: Share a photo of your costume or your time at Freights & Heights with #FrightsandHeights, and tag @GatewayArchSTL on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Candy will be distributed to children. Family-friendly costumes are encouraged. (No weapons, real or pretend. Costume masks must be removed for the security checkpoint.)
In addition to these festivities, Frights & Heights has added a new way to save. Guests are now able to order meals before the event.
Meal add-on: Choose between a hot dog with chips, mac-and cheese with chips, or a pretzel; with a soda or water.
