Frights & Heights at the Gateway Arch

Halloween comes a little early to the Gateway Arch this year! On the evening of Saturday, October 26, the tallest monument in America will transform into the spookiest monument with Frights & Heights, a brand-new, family-friendly Halloween celebration full of tricks and treats. Frights & Heights features: • Trick or Tram: The Arch’s famous Tram Ride to the Top undergoes a spooky makeover. Experience scary sights on the one-of-a-kind 630-foot ride to the top of the Arch. • Ghoulish Gourds: Decorate small pumpkins and take them home with you. • Freaky Face Painting: Look wickedly awesome with a Halloween transformation. • Boo-loon Animals: Watch as the creepiest crawlers come to life! • Treats: Every child will receive a free One-Hour Riverfront cruise ticket from the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch, as well as candy and other fun prizes. Candy will be distributed to children. Family-friendly costumes are encouraged. (No weapons, real or pretend. Masks must be removed for the security checkpoint.)
