Defining Los Angeles Halloween Events

Defining Los Angeles Halloween Events can be a bit tricky (e.g., if you walk through a haunted house with actors performing written dialogue, does that qualify as a maze or a play?) Before scrolling down to the category links lower on this page, the following definitions may help explain why each haunt is in a particular category.

  • Halloween Theme Parks: year-round entertainment centers that put on special Halloween events during October, usually involving multiple haunted mazes. Click here for our recommendations about which ones to attend.
  • Halloween Mazes and Rides: seasonal Halloween attractions by people who specialize in scaring eager trick-or-treaters.
  • Halloween Home Haunts: amateur Halloween haunts , usually decorated yards although some include walk-through mazes similar to professional "haunted houses."
  • Halloween Festivals and Fun: outdoor events, trick-or-treating, street fairs, and semi-professional Halloween events, put on in churches or community centers.
  • Halloween Tours and Shows: cemetery tours, haunted hikes, historical displays, horror movie screenings, and scary plays.
  • Halloween Events for Children: events from other categories that are appropriate for younger trick-or-treaters. These may be small Halloween events taking place as a sort of "sideshow" at year-round attractions open for normal business, or they may be full-blown theme park attractions such as  Disney's Halloween Time and Legoland's Brick-or-Treat. We also include adult-oriented haunted attractions that feature kid-safe matinee performances.
  • Best Halloween Attractions in L.A.: The cream of the crop from all the other categories - to show up here, the attraction must be a perennial that has maintained excellent standards for many years.
  • Graveyard of Halloween Haunts: Haunted Houses that have gone to the great cemetery in the sky (though upon occasion, one may return from the grave)
  • A Halloween Haunts Master List: Everything alphabetized in one place, in case you're not sure which category includes what you're looking for.
