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
