Boo! That (hopefully) didn’t scare you, but as we flip the calendar from September to October, you should certainly expect things to get a lot spookier around Metro Detroit. Throughout the month, we’re going to help you get the most out of this creepy time of year with classic scary movie screenings, haunted bars, Halloween parties for all ages, but first, haunted houses. So get a group of your bravest friends and get ready to tackle the scariest haunted houses in the D.
The aptly titled Haunted Farm of Terror in Lenox Township is celebrating its 15th year with an intense haunted house experience, hayride, and new for this year, a zombie assault paintball game. Be sure to get your tickets early and check the website for exciting (and terrifying) upcoming events.
It’s hard to stay hush-hush while experiencing Hush Haunted Attraction in Westland, mainly because you’re probably going to be too busy screaming. The haunted house attraction is often regarded as one of the scariest haunted houses in all of Michigan, and this year they revamped over 75% of the attraction to make it even scarier. You can watch (if you dare) how Hush has made their haunted house bigger and scarier on the attraction’s Facebook page.
What’s better than a three-story haunted house? A four-story haunted house, of course! That’s what Jackson’s Underworld offers brave customers year in and year out, with 2018 being no different. The extreme haunted house always updates their Facebook page with the latest information and even some contests to win free tickets.
For 12 years, Scarefest Scream Park has given southeast Michiganders plenty to scream about. With four haunted attractions – Hayride of Doom, Terror Zone Maze, Forest of Darkness, and Castle of the Dead – and events such as haunted camping, bonfires, and scary movies, you’re guaranteed to have a spooky night. You can also check the website to see which events are family friendly and which are intense for even the most experienced horror fan.
No Metro Detroit haunted house list is complete without Erebus Haunted Attraction in Pontiac. The four-story haunted house has been a staple in Pontiac for years and they are teasing a whole new experience for this season that is guaranteed to make your skin crawl.
