Best Halloween Haunts in L.A.

For those seeking the Best Los Angeles Halloween Haunts, we present this eclectic selection of creepy 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 as the best in Los Angeles, 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 Los Angeles Halloween Haunts: Categories

Los Angeles Halloween Haunts come in all shapes and sizes, and we try to avoid comparing rotten apples to blood oranges. To help haunt-seekers navigate the labyrinth of choices, we have divided our favorite Halloween events and attractions 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, the haunted attractions are listed alphabetically, not ranked in comparison to each other.
