Ghost Figure - 2022 Halloween Guide

Haunting’s 2022 Halloween Guide

Welcome to Haunting’s 2022 Halloween Guide. In our yearly guide, we introduce you to the best Halloween experiences, haunted houses, conventions, immersive horror experiences, yard displays, and more. If you love Halloween, horror, or immersive entertainment, then this is the perfect guide for you.

This year, we are adjusting our format. We have organized all events by category (Haunted Houses, Conventions, Immersive Horror, et cetera) and further, by location. At the top, we have a table of contents so you can jump around in the article to find exactly what you’re looking for. We have sliders showcasing all events in each category, so click on an event you’re interested and you’ll be given more information, exact location, and dates of operation.

While the organization here showcases everything we have to offer, our Halloween Event Listings allows even more control in filtering events so you’re only seeing what you want to see.

Happy Halloween!

Table of Contents


Immersive Horror


Immersive Horror experiences offer a step up from the traditional haunted house, offering participants a more active role in their narrative. Participants can often explore a location, spending more time in rooms, and engage in a strong narrative. Think of this as a personal, intimate, and evocative experience. While the experiences here do offer engage and interaction with actors, this is in service of a narrative and rarely includes actor contact. These are safe, vetted, and are meant to a lasting memory with the audience.

Haunted Houses


Haunted Houses or “Haunts” are walkthrough mazes in which guests, usually in a single file, walk through a themed set and have actors in costume jump out–“jump scare”–the participants. These are the bread-and-butter of the Halloween season and can be experienced by teens to adults alike. While there are other categories that have innovated on this concept (e.g., immersive horror), these are the best foray into Halloween experiences and offer a wonderful adrenaline experience. Actors here should not touch audiences and the narratives are implied but rarely explored.

Home Haunts


Home Haunts offer the same thrill and style of traditional Haunted Houses, but are built in the yard, home, or street of a residential area. These experiences usually run for only the final weekend of October and are free, resulting in long lines – so if you plan on going, get there early or plan on waiting. Further, these experiences are often family friendly as they appeal to the entirety of the community.

Conventions & Festivals


Halloween Conventions are a collection of vendors, haunted houses, horror actors, and beyond, who have come together in a single location. Here, Halloween, horror, and monsters are celebrated, allowing guests to peruse aisles, shop, and come home with macabre creations that they will not be able to find anywhere else. From Monsterpalooza, which is focused on the Special Effects and Movie Magic industry, to the Oddities Flea Market, which hosts skeletal remains, medical specimens, and jewelry, these experiences are a perfect way to get in the Halloween mindset and fill out your year-round Halloween decor.

Theme Parks


As the popularity of Halloween increased, Theme Parks capitalized on the success of Haunted Houses, integrating these attractions into their Halloween season offerings. In this section, you’ll see the theme parks that offer walkthrough attractions. With the larger budgets, these attractions are usually impressive in scale, incorporating familiar intellectual property (e.g., Stranger Things, Silent Hill, The Exorcist, and Saw at Universal Studios), and numerous scare actors. Yet, this also leads to longer lines and the “conga line effect” in which audiences see a scare happening to the people in front of them, reducing the effect of the jump scare. These are fantastic for a fun night out and often are a staple of anyone’s Halloween season.

Drive-Thru Experiences


Drive-Thru Experiences are Haunted Houses–but from the comfort of your car. These experiences became popularized during the Covid-era, but some have still persisted in the years following. For these events, you will stay entirely in your car.  Actors may interact from outside the vehicle.

Orange County


Inland Empire


Dinner & Drinks


While themed in Halloween set dressing, these events are ones centered around cocktails or dining. Light character interaction, puzzles, or a stage show are often involved.

Los Angeles


Extreme Haunts


Extreme Haunts are haunted houses that push the boundaries of physical comfort, often utilizing actor contact, phobia-exploration, light shocks (i.e., electricity), and/or bugs to ensure fear in their participants. These have light narratives that are expanded in their experiences, but often the focus is the intensity, boundary pushing, and adrenaline response of their audience. These are not recommended for first-time haunted, for young kids, or for those who don’t fully understand the expectations of these experiences. These are for those who want something more from their Halloween experience. They also require a waiver to ensure expectations are understood.

Orange County


Family Friendly Events


Family friendly events are Halloween experiences that are designed for families, young children, and those looking to reinvigorate the child inside them. These often are “spooky” or “autumn” in theme and not scary or horror focused. Expect to see carnival games, friendly actors, trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving, and plenty of candy.

Traditional Theater & Movie Screenings


To end our list, we have some traditional theater experiences and halloween movie screenings. Traditional Theater is exactly what you think it is: these are Halloween or Horror-Themed stage shows with some light immersive elements. The shows range from family-friendly  to to more adult themed cabaret shows. Halloween movie screening are Halloween Themed or Horror movies screening in immersive environments.
