The Best Haunted Houses in the D


Fall has many traditions such as pumpkin picking, cider mill visits, high school football games, trick-r-treating, and of course, haunted houses. There is no denying that haunted houses are fun, especially with a big group, and lucky for you metro Detroit has plenty of haunted houses for you and your friends to get scared at.

Erebus Haunted Attraction

One of the premiere haunted houses in southeast Michigan, Erebus in Pontiac has received multiple awards and has been featured on both the Travel Channel and the Discovery Channel. Things will grab you, jump out at you, chase you, and you’ll even be locked in a room and buried alive. All scary stuff, but if you survive and are one of the first 200 people to make it to the end, you’ll receive a free t-shirt. We think it’s worth it.

The Fear Factory Haunted House

Located in Mt. Clemens, the Fear Factory is one of the largest and scariest haunted houses in metro Detroit. It features over 25,000 square feet of terror, Michigan’s Largest Vortex Tunnel, and it’ll take 30 minutes just to make it through. This year is supposed to feature a brand new maze, so even if you’ve made it through here before, there’s a chance you won’t be able to this time…

The Deadland

The Deadland in Warren is back with an all-new experience and an all-new way to get scared. Detailed makeup and haunted rooms are the main attractions for this house. Be sure to check out the website for a coupon! 

Haunted Farm of Terror

Those looking to get some fresh air with their haunted house experience might want to check out the Haunted Farm of Terror in New Haven. Returning for its 13th season and featuring 20 acres, there are plenty of ways for the dead to terrify you and your friends. If you survive the haunted house experience, you can try your hand at the Zombie Shoot and Haunted Hayride experiences.

Scarefest Scream Park
