How To Haunted House in Colorado!

Visiting haunted houses in Colorado will get you in full spooky season spirit! So how do you Haunted House in Colorado? We came up with three of the best ways to spend a night in Colorado, enjoying all the Spooky stuff you can handle!

The Slasher.

The Slasher is for someone who wants to hit all the spooky spots in Denver and cap their night off by visiting one of the best haunted houses! You’ll start your day by packing your car with road trip essentials, items for a small picnic, and goodies from Headed West. Then you’ll head out and visit all the spooky spots around town!

The first stop of the day is a quick picnic at the most haunted park in downtown Denver, Cheesman Park! Now used as a multi-use recreational area, this park had a ghostly start. It’s on the old Mount Prospect Cemetery grounds, founded in 1858. It was decided to turn the area into a park, and families of the buried there were given 90 days to have their loved ones’ remains moved. Unfortunately, many were poor and could not, meaning there are still bodies buried underneath all that lovely green grass. Great way to start, right?

After your picnic at Cheeseman Park, head to Byers-Evans House Museum. This house has been restored to an early 1900s time period containing original personal items, furniture, and other goodies of the day. Paranormal believers claimed to hear voices coming from empty rooms and have seen full-body apparitions and ghostly figures!

Now it’s starting to get late, so head out to the 13th Floor and begin your night of terror!

The Nightwalker.

Want a creepy staycation? The nightwalker is for those who want the full-blown spooky experience! You can start by booking a night at the Haunted Patterson Inn or Brown Palace Hotel. Either of these hotels has creepy stories of paranormal activity. So you’ll sleep well knowing that someone is ALWAYS WATCHING!
While you lay in bed waiting to see a ghost, book a trip for the Capital Hill Denver Ghost Tours, where you will join a paranormal investigator as they guide you on a walking tour of some of Capital Hill’s most notoriously haunted homes. During this guided tour to these eerie locations around Denver, you will hear real stories from the tour guides while providing you with actual haunted evidence!
Afterward, head to a haunted house of choice and spook the night away! 

The Apparition.

For those that want the full character experience, you might be The Apparition! Head to the Wizards Chest on Broadway, get a new costume, and fully immerse yourself in the spooky world. Once in costume, head to any of the Haunted Houses listed below and enjoy the night in character! 

Best Haunted Houses in Colorado (in no particular order)

The Frightmare Compound
10798 Yukon St Westminster, CO 80021
Opening Day – September 16th

What to Expect

Over 38 years of frights! The Frightmare Compound is located just north of Denver in Westminster but is worth the drive! Visit the Haunted Swamp land, monster museum, gift shop, coffin simulator ride, and mini escape rooms!
The Compound’s story dates back to the 1970s when it was a government-funded project to research decomposing human and animal remains. After reports of grave robbing and missing persons cases, the project was terminated. Legend has it that a scientist refused to leave and created half-living gruesome creatures. 
This land was sold to a man named Brad Holder. Rumors have it that the government sold it to him in exchange for privacy and silence about what happened here and that Brad is the mad scientist himself! Over the years, people living in the area have heard screams and strange sounds… Are you willing to visit this Compound?

The 13th Floor – Haunted House Denver
3400 E. 52ND AVE., DENVER, CO 80216.

What to Expect 
The 13th Floor in Denver is more than a Haunted House as it will feature horror-themed cocktails from The Shriekeasy Pop-up Bar, a snack bar, Halloween-themed photo ops, a selfie station, and a live DJ playing music while you wait in line! Plus, you can purchase photos and merch before you leave!
This Haunted House usually has three themes released before the grand opening. The 2021 season themes were FrostBite, The Dollmaker, and BadBlood.

Frost Bite – is a state-of-the-art Cryogenics lab that has had a breakthrough in reanimating the dead. This new technology gives life back to the deceased as they thaw from their frozen state.
The Dollmaker – a scary house at the end of the street, sits abandoned after the passing of its owner, the dollmaker. Although the house sits quiet and still, his collection of Victorian dolls still fills every inch of every room. 
Bad Blood – a ruthless pack of werewolves on wheels known as the Lycan MC, clash with the savage mob of skate punk vampires, the Coffin Crew. Anyone caught between the warring factions is subject to the carnage that awaits.

Want more from this spooky experience? You can purchase additional tickets for Axe Throwing, the SubZero Secret Bar, and an intense fear-inducing Sensory Overload experience that is not for the faint of heart!
