What to do in Phoenix if you like spooky houses
Jack and Jill’s Haunted Hill
In their quest for water, Jack and Jill decide to explore an abandoned mine and never come down the hill again. Find out what happened to them – it may also happen to you. The house on the hill is pretty creepy before you even enter the place.
Ahwatukee Haunted House and Hayride
This attraction is more suited for the younger goblins! Enjoy an evening of family fun, caramel apples, candy, bake sale, and cider. Visit the mad scientist, caged monsters, and spooky clowns!
This is a charity haunted house. Hollywood horror movies are the theme, and there is a cemetery, haunted house and interactive attractions. The visitor determines how much the donation, 100% of which benefits Habitat for Humanity, should be.
The Slaughter House
Two children went missing at Farmer John’s meat packing house back in 1964. Find out what happened to them and explore other haunts such as the family burial plot, Carnevil, a 3D nightmare, the zombie-filled Boiler Room, City Meats, where the butchers have taken over, and Apocalypse, an interactive haunted house and shooting gallery.
Vaseo Haunted Mansion
The Vaseo apartment complex lures you in with all their newly remodelled apartments, but BEWARE – this apartment living is nowhere near normal and is genuinely a Nightmare on 7th Street. Family fun awaits you! Children’s costume contest, face painting, a bounce house, and more!
Yuma Nightmares Haunted House
The only thing scarier than this haunted house is not having a home. Therefore, the sponsors of this haunted house proudly support charity work, so donations are welcomed.
B & K’s House of Horror
This friendly neighbourhood home is not what it appears to be. The doctors of death are in and waiting for you. No health insurance is accepted – only your soul will satisfy this medical bill.
Golfland Fright Nights
Crawl and climb out of the Gauntlet Haunted House if you can! Returning for another season, the Gauntlet Haunted House unveils all new scares and heart-pounding terror. Surrounded by other Halloween fun, such as Spooktacular Golf, there’s something for everyone.
