The Season of Scream is upon us. Get yourself into the spooky spirit with San Diego’s premiere haunted attractions, The Haunted Hotel, The Haunted Trail of Balboa Park and the Scream Zone at the Del Mar “Scaregrounds.” Whatever type of scare your heart desires, you’re bound to find it at one of these ghostly attractions.
The Haunted Hotel, located in downtown’s Gaslamp Quarter, is the longest running haunted house in San Diego. This year, The Haunted Hotel is loaded with new mind-bending effects. Plunge into the chaos of the “Hellevator,” stroll down the dark, deadly zombie-infested alley, play with the creepy dolls of Doll Island, take a ride to insanity on the Clown Subway, named best haunted room in America, and survive the mayhem of the Twisted Torture Temple.
Balboa Park is turning into the Upside Down World, the parallel universe of evil.
“Stranger Things” are “Conjuring” up at The Haunted Trail and Experiment Maze of Balboa Park. It’s so terrifying this year, that you might get a “Krampus” as you try to escape the “Game o’ Thrones”. Watch your back. You never know where the chainsaw-wielding voodoo masters will strike. The Haunted Trail, a mile long, do you have the guts?
And finally, if screaming’s your thing, the Scream Zone at the Del Mar “Scaregrounds” features KarnEvil, the House of Horror, the Haunted Hayride, and the newest attraction, the Zombie Boot Camp obstacle course. Other highlights include the Clown Lounge, the Conjuring 2, Reaper Abbey, and the levitating girl in the Exorcist room.
So pick your Halloween adventure poison. Or, we dare ya to brave all three!
