The Haunting of Storybook Hollow Will Be on ABC October 22, 2023.

The house at 4970 Biddeford Drive in Comstock Park is living a real-life fairytale right now.

This year, her empire has spilled over from the front yard to the back, making way for four new scenes and an expansion of the four existing ones.

About This Interactive Experience
** Final year - going out with a bang! ** Runs Saturday, October 28 through Halloween night (weather permitting) from 6 PM - 9 PM.
Halloween Heaven is an outdoor haunted trail (front yard, woods trail, back yard, and an extra spooky garage haunted house). Aaron has around 50-60 animatronics that he has been collecting since 2015 that are displayed by theme along the trail.

Kids and adults of all ages are welcome to walk through as many times as they like. Please do not touch the props. Flashlights and/or glowsticks recommended.

This event is free with donation box. (This year's donations will go towards a college fund.) We can't wait to see you there!

For those of you who would like a daylight tour (a less fright-full experience), feel free to come through between 4:30 PM - 6 PM. Halloween night will include extra special treats (and tricks).

      Hi, Desire,
      You can scroll to the top of this post and toggle down on “confirm or submit a listing” to submit your house.

  3. Hi,
    Any chance you can post this under McCabe house. There have been a few “close-calls”. if you stop at the McCabe house- you can park on Conservation or pull over to the grass. Please do not stop quick in the street on McCabe.

          I did help create this list and also help to maintain it. I’ve added you to our list! Thanks for reaching out!

      1. Hi- McCabe has decorations that move. Just a warning if little ones tend to get frightened. Please, please do not stop or drive very slow by. Please pull over as many tend to drive extremely fast on McCabe.

  4. There’s another house in Jenison, on Redwood dr that decorates every year. This year’s theme is, “Monsters Ball”.

  5. Just wanted to confirm that Thornapple DR and Laraway Lake in Ada (Oliver Woods neighborhood) is decked out to the hilt! Much like Christmastime, the first house at the entrance goes ALL out; and many other houses throughout the neighborhood join in on a smaller scale.

  6. 1447-1449 Escott Ave. NW. We have a 7ft werewolf, Pennywise the dancing clown (IT), skeleton horse and stagecoach, a 6ft spider on the roof and plenty of inflatables, including the whole Halloweentown cast from Nightmare before Christmas! Add us to the list!!!

  7. It seems odd that this article doesn’t include a map link with all the addresses. Even worse, now that I want to make one, nothing on this site can be highlighted for copy/pasting? This is great information, not very usable.

      1. How do you make the list? We are down the street from Kinview and Kinrow.
        We decorate pretty good over here too.

  8. Please add a house that on Melita Ave off of Knapp St. I don’t know the specific address, but each year the home owner goes above and beyond with decor and actually dressing up to greet trick-or-treaters with a BOO!

    1. Yes! I’ve seen this house and it’s honestly one of the best houses because the owner goes above-and-beyond in dressing up too!

      1. Ashely – Thank you for the shout-out! I am the crazy Halloween lady you speak of and I am on the list above. We rented on Melita but purchased and moved to 921 Shawmut Ct NW!
