haunted houses, trails, and more. If you’re looking for some thrilling seasonal
fun, look no further than these top haunted attractions in Kentucky.
Talon Falls Screampark
Though it’s nearly three hours away from Elizabethtown, Talon Falls Screampark is worth the long drive. Practically bursting with activities, this park has it all. Take a wagon ride through Blood Creek — a farm overrun with lunatics — or take part in the interactive Sinister Circus to bring your childhood nightmares to life. General admission for all four attractions is $42 (online) or $50. For a less intense experience, you can purchase admission to Talon Falls for $17 (online) or $20.
Sinister Tombs Haunted House
Only 20 minutes south of Elizabethtown lies one of the most popular haunted houses in the state – Sinister Tombs. This terrifying site offers enough attractions to keep you on edge for hours with over 50 highly-trained actors, wooded trails, and covered bridges to thrill, scare, and invigorate you. Better yet, every scream and yell benefits a good cause. Every dollar spent at Sinister Tombs will be donated to a worthwhile charity. Admission costs $15 for adults and $12 for children ages five to 12.
Halloween is a wonderful time to enjoy your community’s
creativity, but make sure to do so safely. If your vehicle is due for any
maintenance, swing by Hardin County Honda for a tune-up. An optimized car is

As the temperature drops and the snow begins to fall, the likelihood of your car breaking down increases. To help you get ready for winter weather, we’ve put together some tips on how to prepare your car for snow.
Check the battery.
Cold weather can affect the performance of your battery. Make sure you keep an eye
on your battery’s charge throughout the winter. If your car’s battery happens
to be more than four years old, it might be time to replace it for optimal
Take your tire
pressure. Your tire pressure can decrease as the temperature drops. Use a
tire pressure gauge to check that your tires remain in the recommended pressure
range that is noted in the owner’s manual for your car.
Bring it in for a
check up. If you’re worried your car isn’t winter-ready, bring it by your
local mechanic’s shop and have them check all fluids, especially your car’s
windshield wipers. Visibility is important in the winter, so make sure your
windshield wipers are in working order. If it’s been awhile since you last
changed them — or if you notice and chips or splits in the rubber — you should
change them now.

As the hot days of summer recede and fall creeps closer, it’s time to begin your back-to-school preparations. These include, of course, getting your car in tip-top shape before the school year is in full-swing and your schedule fills up. The following are a few tips on how to get your car ready for back to school, whether that means heading back to college or carpooling your kids to school.
Check fluid levels: Simple fluid-level checks are part of good, routine car maintenance, so take an afternoon to make sure you have appropriate amounts of oil, coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid. These checks are easier to address while at home – if you’re heading back to college – or before the school year’s busyness sets it.
Check tires: You should also check your tire treads and pressure. If your tire treads are overly-worn, you will want to consider getting a new set of tires, especially if you plan on driving long distances back to college. You will also want to check your tire pressure, as tire pressure affects your control, handling, and fuel efficiency while on the road, and causes your tires to wear unevenly.
Clean it inside and out: A new school year is like a fresh start, so start the year off right be cleaning out your vehicle’s interior and washing its exterior.
The best way to get your car ready for back to school is to schedule a service appointment at Hardin County Honda and let our professional technicians take care of it. Give us a call today so you can stop worrying about your car and start thinking ahead to school instead!
