Haunted Houses & Haunted Mazes in Michigan

Want to celebrate the spooky season with Halloween activities like a visit to a Haunted Attraction? Here’s what you need to know before going to a Haunted House near you: One size does not fit all.

Parental judgment is the biggest “rule” when it comes to an age limit for haunted houses in Michigan. You know your child the best. In my own family, my nine-year-old is gangbusters for getting freaked out, whereas my 15-year-old wants nothing to do with it. This is definitely not the time for forced family fun.

If you dare to track down all of these Michigan haunted houses, haunted corn mazes, and yes, even a haunted ship – you’ll be driving for the better part of a day.

With all that said, here’s a list of local favorites and top Haunted Attractions in Michigan:

Haunted Hayrides, Haunted Mazes, Haunted Houses & More

Haunted Hayride, Haunted Woods, Haunted House in Northern Michigan

Haunted House Screams in the Dark

3606 Blair Town Hall Rd, Traverse City, MI 49685

About This Haunted Hayride, Haunted Woods, Haunted House
Multiple haunted attractions located on the grounds of the Northwestern Michigan Fair.

"Grimfell Asylum" is a trek through a mental asylum and the effects of a horrifying doctor's work.

New for 2022 is "The Swamp of Suffering" where Dr. Grimfell's failed experiments are discarded... and some have thrived in the swampy grounds.

Evil clowns and horrifying cackles await in "Pandemonium."

The wagon ride through the haunted trail is geared more towards a family friendly scare, and is appropriate for most ages. There are scares - but it stays away from the gore, and intense scares found in the indoor haunts.

Open Fridays & Saturdays 7:30 PM - 11 PM and Sundays 7:30 PM - 10 PM.

Scare Level & Age Limits
3 out of 5. Recommended ages are 10+ for the Hayride & Trail
14+ for “Grimfell Asylum,” “Pandemonium,” and “The Swamp of Suffering”

The Hayride & Haunted Trail are intended to be more “Family” friendly. There are still plenty of scares, but they are not as intense as those in the other two attractions.

We require that all children must be able to walk on their own. You may not carry your child through any of the attractions.
