Best Halloween Haunts in L.A.

Halloween-Haunted-House-Wallpaper-01For haunt-seekers who desire the very best that Halloween in Los Angeles has to offer, we present this eclectic selection of Halloween events and attractions: theme parks, haunted houses, rides, mazes, theatrical experiences, and more..

These haunts have been chosen because they maintain consistently high quality from year to year, making them must-see events every Halloween. Thus, 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.

To help you navigate the labyrinth of choices, we have divided the haunts into categories according to where they are normally listed on our website: Halloween Theme Parks; Halloween Mazes and Rides; Halloween Home Haunts; and Halloween Tours and Shows. Within each category, attractions are listed alphabetically, not ranked in comparison to each other.
