New Scares at Halloween Haunt this Year

As a San Jose State University graduate with a Journalism degree, I enjoy being able to use my creativity to tell unique behind the scenes stories in a new perspective!

The most terrifying time of the year is just 21 days away. The Bay Area’s premier Halloween event, Halloween Haunt, challenges you to face your biggest fears, escape horrifying mazes and make your way through the park’s frightening monsters lurking around every corner. Halloween Haunt returns even creepier this fall with three new additions to an already frightening lineup of mazes and entertainment. 

New! Killer Clown Town: 

Are you brave enough to face one of America’s biggest fears—clowns? The all-new Killer Clown Town will tap into some of the most terrifying phobias: clowns and balloons. Make your way toward Planet Snoopy to see if you can handle this scare zone.

New! Wax Museum Blackout:

We all know and love the Wax Museum maze at Halloween Haunt. But this year it’s taking a dark turn. This twisted museum’s lights have gone out and visitors are only given a dim flashlight to use to find their way out. Can you escape the Wax Museum, or will you become part of the permanent collection?

New! Dia de los Muertos:

The dead have rejoined the living and are throwing a lively party in Orleans Place. This new party zone will feature a mariachi band and dancers to get the party going! Join your free-spirited hosts as they welcome you into the land of the dead to enjoy the music and dancing of an energetic Dia de los Muertos celebration.

New! Blood Drums:

Blood Drums is returning this year but with a whole new set-up! Join the Street Drum Corps for a Halloween stage show right near Delirium. Blood Drums will perform on the top of a multi-level stage—bigger and better than ever before. Guests of age can grab an adult beverage on the first story and then step back to enjoy the show!


Fear is waiting for you! Halloween Haunt runs select nights Sept. 27-Nov. 2. Tickets are on sale now for the lowest price online. Save even more by getting a Gold Season Pass and visiting an unlimited amount of times this Haunt season!
