Haunted Houses are one of Halloween’s most loved traditions and can be celebrated by those of all ages – depending on the Haunt’s scare factor. Prepare yourself for the Haunts opening their doors for the Halloween Season right here in Iowa! There are a ton from Leon to Des Moines, giving you the opportunity to choose your location and head to as many haunts as you’d like! Some open before October and don’t close until right after Halloween, giving you plenty of time to spend the season haunting with friends.

Some haunts will feature a theme that they stick to all throughout, while others switch things up depending on the room you’re in. In this case, you won’t know what is awaiting you in the next room – it could be a killer clown, a hungry zombie or a psychotic doctor and his patients – you’ll never know until you enter! If you’re interested in taking the kiddies with you, but want less scares, some haunts feature “Not-So-Scary” days where the entire family can attend together. These usually take place on the weekends, so be sure to check the particular Haunt’s schedule ahead of time to assure you head there on the correct days. Add to the fun by checking out a haunt that offers additional Halloween activities such as Spook Walks, Hay Rides, Pumpkin Picking, and Corn Mazes!
