NOTE: If you plan to visit any of the above Halloween attractions, remember that Friday and Saturday night rides and attractions often have older/rowdier crowds. So if you have kids, it’s best to visit the place on Sundays or before 9pm for a much better experience.
I’ve definitely hear of Erebus, the others here are new to me though.
Lots of great places to be scared. My younger boys are loving the scare part of Halloween.
These all look like great places to visit in Oakland County! We always have fun going to Haunted Attractions.
These are super spooky attractions to visit for Halloween. Spectacular list.
As much as i love Halloween, and horror movies, I am not a fan of haunted house. The older I get, the more nervous I become. I love to hear about them though.
I have never enjoyed Haunted Houses. Not even as a child. I participated in one a few years and that was fun. I appreciate that you take the time to gather all the info. My children and their spouses like to visit them. If this was our city this post would be very helpful.
If only I enjoyed being scared, I would be visiting all of these places! Just watching that second video clip had me jumping haha.
All of these Halloween activities look great! If I was in the area, I’m not sure which one I’d pick. The Tunnel of Terror definitely sounds creepy.
My kids are too much of scaredy cats to go to haunted houses but I’m looking forward to going to some of these attractions with them when the kids get older. Hopefully will have a few chances to spend Halloween with them doing some of these attractions before they get too old to want to spend time with dad anymore. These are some great suggestions!
I wish I can also go to Halloween attractions but it is not a big deal here in my city. People do not really celebrate it aside from the ghost place advertised in Seoul.
I’ve never been to a haunted house or attraction before. Some activities/rides might be not so scary but some might give me a heart attack.
I have officially graduated and passed off all the haunted activities to my two daughters. But this looks fun 🙂
I wish I lived closer! These all sound like super spooky fun spots to visit!
Wow, this looks super intense! Haha. Looks like a lot of fun though. I love Halloween.
I have never been to Michigan but I can’t resist a good haunted house that’s for sure. Horror has always been my favorite genre.
I’ve never been to Oakland. But these places look exciting. Perhaps should visit the place during Halloween.
We have a couple around here, but our favorite are the haunted corn mazes! You get lost – then scared out of your mind!
You will certainly not catch me in the forest!! That is too funny and looks scary!
These sound like they would be a blast! Thanks for the awesome list!
Holy crap, looks a little terrifying to me! I enjoy good thrills and horror parks. I’ve been to a few and sometimes leave disappointed because they weren’t scary enough.
The Haunted Forest looks like it would be so much fun! I love this time of year with the activities that are available to be able to do as a family.
I wish these were closer to me. My husband and I love to check out haunted houses during the halloween season. This looks like so much fun!
It looks like a fun and scary place to visit this Halloween. I will definitely check these places. Glad you shared this
I’ve been to a haunted attraction before, we rode a train and there were scarers on the side doing their scary faces and lights would turn on and off.lol
So spooky! I am kind of a chicken when it comes to stuff like that, but my family all loves it. Maybe I’ll be braver with a group of people.
Awesome! That would be a nice activity for the courageous at heart. I would probably beg off though. If we only lived close, I know my sons would have been in those haunted house attractions in a flash.
I love Halloween so much! This year we are putting on our own “Haunted Forest” because our community is pretty small. We are hoping to make it a community event in the future!
I dont like haunted houses but these looks fun for those who do!!!
I love the Fall! This is that season when you can always find something amazing to do! I would love to go to the Haunted House even though I may chicken out before I make it all the way through…lol
The Tunnel of Terror looks frightening! I used to go on a haunted hayride and that was fun.
I think haunted attractions in forests are really scary. It’s like there is a whole ‘nother element of fear of not knowing what is out there before the attraction sets up.
Oh man those look like great places but I would get so crazy scared! Very cool tho!
I went to something similar when I was in College and haven’t been back lol. This sounds like it was a lot of fun.
It’s always great to have a list of attractions near you! The people who live near Oakland are lucky!
Oakland has some great, creative spots for Halloween. Been there a couple of times with my girlfriends and I remember having the best times. I’ve never been to a haunted forest and could imagine just how scary it is! Yikes!
I love haunted houses! I wish we lived near here so we could visit! We have a few places like this where we live but it would be great to try something different!
Oh wow, scary fun! My siblings and I love these kind of stuff, haha!
Looks like a great olace to visit this Halloween. Surely that all children and adults will enjoy there visit this kind of scary place.
