Best Halloween Haunts in L.A.
For those seeking the Best Halloween Haunts in Los Angeles, we present this eclectic selection of attractions: theme parks, haunted houses, rides, mazes, theatrical experiences, and more..
Every year, Hollywood Gothique reviews numerous Halloween events. The haunted attractions listed on this page have been chosen because they maintain consistently excellent quality from year to year, frequently earning nominations and wins in our annual Halloween Haunt Awards. Consequently, you will not find one-off events, such as plays or exhibitions that ran during only a single season; nor will you find attractions on hiatus or defunct - those are listed in the Graveyard of Lost Halloween Haunts.

Best Halloween Home Haunts, Yard Haunts & Garage Haunts in Los Angeles
Though non-profit amateur events, home haunts, yard haunts, and garage haunts often showcase professional quality work. The distinctions are fluid, but "yard haunts" are typically decorated displays; "home haunts" and "garage haunts" often include walk-through mazes with actors in costume, for a stronger scare experience. These amateur Halloween efforts usually operate only for a few days at the end of October.
