Halloween in Denver is for those who enjoy fear. From haunted houses to scream parks and zombie crawls, Denver has it all. These haunted houses and Halloween events in Denver are so intense that children ages 12 and under aren't admitted, so call your babysitter, and head out for a good scare!

Haunted Field of Screams

Colorado’s largest scream park, Haunted Field of Screams is not for the faint of heart. Bordering the haunted Riverdale Road in Thornton, the park has four interactive haunt experiences.

In Condemned, you’ll experience escape room elements as the "violently-psychotics" hunt you down. Zombie Paintball Massacre is exactly what you'd expect: paintball versus zombies.

In Dead Man’s Maze you’ll only have the moon’s light to guide you with the undead waiting at every wrong turn. Finally, CarnEvil in the Corn will lure you into an abandoned carnival in a corn field. Of course, it’s not completely abandoned as you’ll be facing carnival acts hungry for blood.

The park opens September 21 and will be open Fridays through Sundays in September and October and, of course, on Halloween. Tickets are $43 for general admission, $58 for VIP Fast Passes that give you the ability to skip the general admission lines, and $73 for Instant access guaranteeing no wait times.

Due to its outdoor location, Haunted Field of Screams may have to close for inclement weather, so please check their website for daily updates.
