Want to test your fears against some of Boulder County’s creepiest Halloween activities? Get your tickets to one of these spooky haunted houses and attractions in and around Boulder. This playful time of the year gets even more exciting with a jaunt through a scary haunted house or a historic ghost tour. Shake up your typical date night, group hangs, or even the monthly after-work social with any of the following.
The Empty Grave, Longmont
For the scariest 10 minutes of your life, visit The Empty Grave, a haunted house in downtown Longmont. This immersive, walk-through haunted house features state-of-the-art special effects, fully-costumed actors, and animatronics that lend to the overall terrifying effect of this “haunted factory”. Guests have the “graveyard shift” and are challenged to make it through to the other side. Are you up for the task?
Terror in the Corn, Erie
Rated as one of the top haunted attractions in the country, Terror in the Corn is not for the faint of heart. An enclosed trailer takes you and your group out to 10 acres of corn fields and drops you off, leaving you to your own devices. Find your way to the abandoned town of Raven’s Gulch and make your way through its “Mile of Mayhem”. Nightmares are sure to greet you at each turn.
The Frightmare Compound, Broomfield
For over 38 years, The Frightmare Compound in Broomfield has been attracting and scaring visitors from near and far. A few nights each season, the haunted attraction turns out the lights so visitors move from room to room, with no idea what lurks behind the next turn. Monsters, ghosts, and unexplainable creatures pop out of closets, drop down from the ceiling, and crawl out of cupboards, all to wish you the happiest, scariest Halloween.
Banjo Billy’s Ghost Tour, Boulder
Typically, this tour takes place on a funky Banjo Billy’s bus. This year, the Boulder Ghost Tour has shifted to an ambulatory style. Spend two hours strolling through some of Boulder’s lesser trafficked areas in search of the ghosts and spirits that also call this town home. Ride the elevator with a well-known spector who has spent his afterlife haunting the guests at the Boulderado. Meander along the creek while keeping eyes peeled in hopes of spying various spirits that have been reported to bask along its banks, no matter the time of year.
While many locals and tourists cite Boulder County’s foothills and mountains as its most noteworthy calling cards, the haunted activities that crop up each Halloween are certainly memorable, to say the least. Level up your traditional Halloween events and scare your friends at these Boulder County haunted houses and attractions.
