Terror in the Corn
Through October 29
Anderson Farms, 6728 County Road 3 1/4, Erie
Despite forming the backbone of the agrarian economy, cornfields become downright sinister at nightfall, when the shadowy stalks are thought to hide untold menaces. At Anderson Farm's Terror in the Corn, there's no telling what horrors are lurking around the next corner. Guests who feel like getting in on the splatter fest can live out their Dawn of the Dead dreams at the Zombie Paintball Hunt. Admission to each attraction is $22 to $25, or $40 to $45 for both. Check out the Terror in the Corn website for tickets and information, including directions.
13th Floor & Asylum Haunted House
Through November 11
3400 East 52nd Avenue
Celebrated by media ranging from MTV to USA Today to Fangoria, the 13th Floor and Asylum haunted houses are hair-raising gauntlets of gore. From its Denver base, 13th Floor Entertainment Group has expanded over the years and now produces haunted-house attractions in Phoenix, Austin, San Antonio and Chicago every Halloween season – but Denver's version remains the largest and spookiest. After relocating to new digs on 52nd Avenue, the revamped 13th Floor is 10,000 feet larger than its predecessor, complete with more parking spaces and a more efficient waiting area. To learn more and buy tickets, $20 to $40, visit 13th Floor's website.
City of the Dead Haunted House
Through November 11
7007 East 88th Avenue, Henderson
Clocking in at just over 30,000 square feet, the City of the Dead Haunted House is Colorado's largest and longest indoor haunt, as well as a perennial favorite. Consistently ranked among the top haunts not only in the state but in the entire country, City of the Dead stands out for its attention to detailed costuming and set decoration as well as an unnervingly committed cast of ghouls. This year, the attraction is offering a trio of new haunts: Dark Souls, the Dead Rising and Carnival of Carnage. Visit City of the Dead's home page for tickets, $20 to $55, and information. And if you get cold feet, don't worry: Tickets are valid all season long.
