7 Best Haunted Houses in Phoenix to Be Spooked at This Halloween (2022)

Things To Do | October 15, 2021 | SWSS Staff

Are you searching for something spooky to do at night during your October trip to Phoenix, Arizona? Fortunately, Phoenix has no shortage of frightening haunted houses, scary ghost tours, and spooky corn mazes for all ages throughout the city.

Here are the seven best haunted houses in Phoenix you can’t miss this Halloween season!

1. 13th Floor Haunted House

The 13th Floor Haunted House is a nationally-ranked haunted house located off the I-17 and Bell Road that has continually been named the biggest and best Halloween-themed attraction in Metro Phoenix.

The Thirteenth Floor changes every year, and they have two new themes for 2022. They include Midnight Mania, a masked slasher who stalks groups of curious explorers who have entered a condemned house, and Daywalker, an ancient vampire who has been released from his prison. If you’re looking for a haunted house that is graphic, theatrical, and downright terrifying, don’t miss a chance to visit The Thirteenth Floor!

2. The Crypt Haunted Attractions

The Crypt Haunted Attractions

The Crypt Haunted Attractions is located on Southern Ave. in Mesa, Arizona, and has three thrilling attractions you can experience during Halloween—The Crypt, The Asylum, and The Chaos Maze. The Crypt and The Asylum are both haunted houses. The Asylum is a newer theme where a mad doctor turns inmates into killers. The Chaos Maze is a haunted corn maze that challenges you to find your way out. 

You can purchase an Ultimate Fright Pass to experience all three scares for just $25. You can also purchase a ticket to just one haunted house, The Crypt or The Asylum, for $18 or a ticket to just The Chaos Maze for $8. This haunt is not recommended for visitors under the age of ten.

2022 Update: The Crypt Haunted Attractions is closed this year. Check back next year to see if this popular attraction is open!

3. Fear Farm


Are you looking for the largest haunted attraction in the Phoenix metro area? At Fear Farm, you can encounter hundreds of cast members and actors in costume ready to scare you in five haunted houses spanning 27 acres of land. 

Fear Farm is owned by the Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group and has new themed haunted houses each year. This year, their five haunts include the Chop House, Nuke Town, Legends of the Deep, All Hallows Eve, and Outcast Carnival. They also have a haunted corn maze, The Reaping, which you can add to your admission at Fear Farm for only $10 per person.

While at Fear Farm, you can also spend time at The Midway—a spooky circus that sells carnival snacks and provides live entertainment for guests, or you can experience the Phoenix Haunted Hayride.

4. Scarizona Scaregrounds

Scarizona Scaregrounds is a popular haunted attraction located on Alma School Road in Mesa, Arizona, including two thrilling haunted houses. Mayhem in the Madness allows you to encounter chaos, disorder, bedlam, and havoc, and Startled Darkness requires you to navigate your way in complete darkness.

Scarizona Scaregrounds gives guests the option to purchase fast pass tickets to skip the line. This year, Scarizona will be enforcing social distancing by sending parties into the haunts together, so it’s helpful to book your desired date and timeslot online and ensure your party arrives together.

5. AZ Field of Screams

AZ Field of Screams is a haunted corn maze located at Tolmachoff Farms in Glendale, Arizona. Since the farm also hosts the kid-friendly Pumpkin Days & Corn Maze event in October, it’s an excellent destination for the entire family to experience together during the Halloween season. 

For $25, daring guests can wander through a six-acre corn field sitting over an old cemetery. Although this maze isn’t recommended for children under the age of ten, Tolmachoff Farms also has family-friendly corn mazes, so younger children can still experience the festive fun.

6. Spooktacular Golf

In October, Golfland Sunsplash in Mesa, Arizona, undergoes a terrifying transformation to offer a Spooktacular Golf—a Halloween-themed mini-golf experience that’s fun for the whole family. 

In the past, Golfland Sunsplash has hosted Golfland Fright Nights featuring The Gauntlet Haunted House, but this year, they are focusing on offering two spooky mini-golf courses. One golf course is milder for young children, and the other course includes an elevated level of horror for an older audience. They also have Winter Wonderland golf during the Christmas season. 

There are no additional fees for Spooktacular Golf—just the standard fee you’d pay for mini-golf, which is $10.99 for adults and $9.99 for kids.

7. Sanctum of Horror

The Sanctum of Horror is an award-winning haunted event in the East Valley Phoenix area that includes two spooky attractions. The Sanctum requires you to navigate through a little girl’s childhood home and consists of an ancient graveyard and an asylum. The Breach is a newer attraction where you will find yourself in a desert military research facility that houses frightening mutations (and zombies!). 

The Sanctum of Horror sells tickets for one person for $28 and fast pass tickets for $38. Their tickets include admission to both houses.
