Find the Best Halloween Attractions in Los Angeles
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.
