Roam Through Utah’s Scariest Haunted Houses

Utah may be known for its spectacular rock formations, abundance of outdoor activities and its four distinct seasons, but little do people know that each October this gorgeous state transforms from a colorful and dynamic locale to a much darker and sinister dwelling.

This Halloween season, spend your nights shrieking with delight at the many frightening haunted houses throughout the Beehive State.

Here is where you can get your scare on in Utah this spooky season.


Asylum 49

By far one of the scariest attractions in the state, this haunted house is nothing like what you’ve ever experienced before. Modeled as a haunted hospital, you’ll encounter zombie-infested hospital staff and patients that will detain you in small dark areas and even strap you to a metal bed. According to Yelp reviews, yelling and crying is a common experience for many of the Asylum’s visitors – so if you think this experience might be too much for you, you’re probably right.

Fear Factory

Salt Lake City’s only “haunted” haunted house, Fear Factory comes with a long history of suspense and despair. Originally a cement factory, the site was known for the many deaths of its workers while working on the factory’s dangerous machines. After the company closed its doors, the building was bought out by numerous would-be entrepreneurs that never lasted long and ultimately abandoned the lot. Now, it is said to be haunted by the spirits that suffered painful deaths at the hands of the factory’s deadly machinery. Visitors are welcome to tour the entire factory and encounter the scares (real or not!) that come with this mysterious locale.

Nightmare on 13th

Nightmare on 13th continues to live up to its frighteningly good reputation. The attraction was named one of America’s Horrifying Haunted Houses by the Travel Channel and one of the Spookiest Haunted Houses in the USA by USA Today. And we can’t say we’re surprised. With over 25 years of successfully scaring the bravest of the brave with 45 different rooms that each feature ghoulish surprises, this nightmare is one that’ll leave you wanting more.

Haunted Forest

The largest haunted attraction in the state, Haunted Forest is no joke when it comes to real life frights. Claimed to be haunted by crazy Annie, a woman who died in the forest as she mourned the death of her deceased fiancé, legend has it that her spirit has appeared to those who have walked through the forest. The Haunted Forest will put you in the center of it all as you follow real trails that take you through actual swamps, mine shafts and chilling dungeons. Actors will be there to make your experience frighteningly fun as you experience this outdoor adventure. Who knows, you might even catch a glimpse of Annie.
