8 Can’t Miss Orlando Haunted Houses

Skip the long lines and high prices at the theme parks this year and experience one of these truly unique local haunted houses. From Stranger Things themed haunts to captivating tales of alien invasions, these attractions are sure to put you in the Halloween Spirit.


A Petrified Forest, Altamonte Springs 

Now through November 3: The forest may look like a normal part of Mother Nature, but the secrets within may have you regretting your journey through it. All through the trees are whispers from lives of a bygone era, pushing you closer and closer to a massive haunted house. You may think you can take refuge here, but rest assured that this is no safe haven. Spirits roam free, monsters lurk in every dark corner, and sheer terror awaits unsuspecting victims who are brave enough to enter. For an extra terrifying experience, try one of their Total Eclipse Nights, where the ONLY light you have is a small glow stick. EEK! 

Face The Fear House, Longwood

Now through October 28:This haunted attraction doesn't use the blood and gore you’d expect from a haunted house. Instead, it offers an intriguing backstory and plot. Last year’s theme was clowns. For 2018, it’s aliens! 

Orlando Haunted Maze, Orlando

Once you begin your journey through the haunted maze, take care to ensure you don’t take a wrong turn. If you do, you might be trapped forever! Along the way, you may encounter your share of spooky creatures, some real and some animatronic. But you might not be able to tell the difference until it’s too late. If you make it out alive, you’re one of the lucky ones.

Sanford Screams, Sanford

Side effects for entering this haunted house in Sanford may be, but not limited to, sleepless nights, night tremors, nightmares, scared to be alone and just maybe temporary loss of bladder control! The good news is a portion of the proceeds will go to Boys and Girls Club of Central Florida.
