Haunted Houses in Phoenix - 2013

Find Frightful Fun at a Phoenix Halloween Haunted House

By

Although there may be other activities and events associated with these haunted attractions, the main event is probably the terrifying, horrifying, spine-chilling haunted house(s). You'll find that typically they are not recommended for young children or people with weak hearts. Frankly, if you are squeamish or frighten easily, I probably don't recommend these at all. But if you like a good, gruesome scare, you have plenty of haunted attractions in the Phoenix area from which to choose.

The haunted attractions listed here are presented in alphabetical order. Of course, there are other ways to celebrate Halloween, and you'll find those here:

13th Floor Haunted House

Courtesy 13th Floor Haunted House
Why do many tall buildings not have a 13th floor? What has happened in history to create such a stigma about a 13th Floor? You'll find out at 13th Floor Haunted House, inhabited by fortunate or unfortunate souls, living and dead, that have discovered their secret locations when seeking shelter from the environment, or society. Various species of rats, snakes, and spiders have also taken up residence here, living in secret, by their own rules. This is a multi-level haunted attraction. Not recommended for small children. No cameras. General admission: $25; VIP Fast Pass: $35. Immediate Access: $45. Free parking.
