New England’s Largest List of Halloween Haunted Houses

Hey Events INSIDERs!

Halloween brings so many engaging, interactive haunted houses, theme park attractions, corn mazes, haunted hay rides, scary woods walks, ziplines, zombie paintball, and other adventures! So don’t just go to a bar that offers a costume prize hoping that you’ll do all the creative work and get drunk. Live life to the fullest by exploring New England. (And don’t base life decisions on visiting a psychic or ghost hunters. You guys know that’s BS, right?)

Events INSIDER has reviewed nearly 50 Halloween attractions in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. And we track nearly 200!

Here is a fraction of the attractions, the ones that are open in the next week.
