Are you in the mood for a good scare? Here are Denver’s most scary haunted houses, hair-raising theme parks and creepy mazes. If you dare, check out these Halloween attractions for lots of terrifying thrills.

13th Floor Haunted House

Scare-lovers can get into the spirit of the season with three new attractions inside this popular haunt. Begin with Frostbite in a Cryogenics lab that is reanimating the dead, then stroll through the abandoned house of a deceased Doll Maker whose collection of Victorian dolls still fill every inch of every room. Finish with Bad Blood where the ancient feud between Vampires and Werewolves rages within the shadows of today’s city streets. This year haunt-goers can check out new Thirteenth Floor Entertainment attractions on-site including Blitz Bowl, an outdoor activity that combines football, bowling, and a dash of corn hole, Class Axe Throwing, and Shriekeasy Bar (21+). Additional add-on options include Mini Escape Rooms and Sensory Overload. 3400 E 52nd Ave, Denver, CO.

The Frightmare Compound

Unimaginable horrors await in The Frightmare Compound. As one of the oldest horror houses for the Denver community (founded in 1983), the terror may follow you home. Founder Brad Holder painstakingly crafted the compound for 16 years before falling ill. They say his body is buried deep within the haunted house, making this one of the most authentic. You’ll also find a Monster Museum and Mini Escape Rooms. 10789 Yukon Street, Westminster thefrightmarecompound.comFrightmare Compound

Haunted Field of Screams

Haunted Field of Screams is Colorado’s largest scream park with four terrifying interactive haunts, with two tours, one maze, and a paintball shootout. All children under 13 must be chaperoned by an adult. Riverdale Road is known as the most haunted road in Colorado. With stories of hangings, burnings and roadside accidents, lost souls roam the 11-mile stretch aching for help from those passing by. Witness the walking dead and strange, violent mysteries unravel around you. A hayride will transport you to where a woman in white awaits her revenge on her husband who burned down her house…or anybody else passing by. 10451 McKay Road, Thornton, Colorado.
