We’ve found some terrifying haunted houses in Arizona for you. Arizona has lots of zombies, ghosts, devils, demons, aliens, and creatures staying at the states many haunted houses in October 2013. They will scare the Sun Devil out of you and make you wish that you were at the bottom of the Grand Canyon trail.
Whether you live near Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff or Yuma, you’ll enjoy these spine tingling haunted attractions for an evening of entertainment.
As the last contiguous state admitted into the Union, we’re surprised that there are so many zombies in Arizona already. But as you can see from this list of Arizona haunted houses, there are quite a few still living in the Wild West!
Phoenix Haunted Houses
We have absolutely no idea why there are so many ghosts congregated in the Phoenix area. You might as well enjoy the many haunted houses in Phoenix. Residents of Mesa, Scottsdale and Glendale have no idea how lucky they are to have so many fun options at Halloween.
The Nest Haunted House in Chandler, Arizona has consistently been ranked as one of the top haunted houses in the country. Good Morning America, MSN.com, and America’s Best Haunts have all placed it on their top haunted house lists in the past two or three years. There’s eleven acres of fun for haunted house enthusiasts.
The Nest is located at 5700 W. North Loop Road, Chandler, Arizona 85226. A ticket is $25. The theme is about the 35 dead victims of a notorious serial killer roaming the countryside. The Nest is a 55,000 square foot attraction advertised as the “spookiest place in America”.
The Nest Haunted House has a Monster Midway with concessions, stunt shows, food, photos, and beer. It runs September 27th, 28th and every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from October 4th through October 31st. Doors open at 7 pm.
You might think that a haunted house as highly rated as The Nest would face only weak competition from surrounding Phoenix haunted houses. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
The largest haunted house in Phoenix is 13th Floor. There is a reason buildings do not have a 13th floor. Can you survive the 13th Floor? Every 113th customer who makes it through gets money back. It is that scary. The second scary attraction is Zombieland Haunted House. Are you afraid of Zombies? You will be. The address is 2814 W. Bell Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85053. Two attractions at one combined low price of $25.
Fear Farm is 26 acres with 5 haunted attractions and a separate corn maze. The haunted houses are Chainsaw Mayhem featuring murder, crippling chaos and blood. Sector 13 has aliens in a terrifying battle. Condemned is about insanity and mayhem. Annihilation has zombies. Twisted Toy Factory is about the toys created by demented factory workers. Cost for all 5 combined is $25. The address is 2209 N. 99th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85037.
Chambers of Fear has been rated the #1 Haunted House in Arizona a number of times. Read our interview with Graveyard Entertainment the producers of Chambers of Fear.
Located near Phoenix, Chambers of Fear is the valleys scariest haunted attraction. Over 25,000 sq. feet of terror in a combined 3 haunt attraction (Chambers of Fear, Den of Darkness, and Scary Tales) for one low price of $22. The address is 11340 W. Bell Rd., Surprise, Arizona 85378. Open September 13, 20, 21, 27, 28, Oct 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 31, Nov. 1, 2. All dates open at 7 pm.
Two other Phoenix haunted houses for local residents are Jack and Jill’s Haunted Hill.
For those who live west of Phoenix in Mesa, there are a number of local Halloween attractions. Dark Scares and Golfland Fright Nights are the two primary haunted attractions. Mesa also has a haunted garage called The House on Camino. This past year, the theme was a haunted motel and the money raised was donated to the Child Crisis Center.
Dark Scares operates Friday and Saturday nights from September 27th through November 2nd plus October 20th, 27th, and 31st. Doors open at 7 pm.
Ticket are $15. Dark Scares is located at 1061 N Dobson Road, Mesa, Arizona 85201.
Golfland Fright Nights runs a terrifying maze called The Gauntlet Haunted House. It runs Friday and Saturday from October 4th through the 31st plus the nights of the 9th, 10th, 16th, 17th, and 30th. It is open Friday and Saturday from dusk until 12 am. Tickets are $12.
Golfland Fright Nights also has an Endless Fear ticket for $27.46. This gives you The Gauntlet plus miniature golf, race cars ride, laser tag, and the bumper boats.
Tucson Haunted Houses
The Tucson Screamers’ put together an annual haunted house for charity. The Slaughter House has four haunted houses and areas for the kids. It prides itself in being something that will “scare you to your core.” Previously, the Screamers ran a haunted house known as Phobia.
The Slaughter House sells tickets at $7 each for the Twisted Tree Mortuary, Carnevil, The Boiler Room, and City Meats. The most extreme haunt of these is City Meats.
The House On Camino runs a nice garage haunt advertised as “Arizona’s Premier Garage Haunt.” It operates from 6:30 pm to 9 pm on October 25th, 26th, and 31st.
Flagstaff Haunted Houses
The only haunted house that we found in Flagstaff was courtesy of Northern Arizona University: the Taylor Haunted House. Otherwise, it’s two hours to enjoy the Phoenix haunted houses and four hours to party it up in the haunted houses in Las Vegas. Best we can do for you.
Yuma Haunted Houses
The only haunted house we located is the Yuma Nightmares Haunted House. For more options, you’ll find it three hours to the haunted houses in San Diego or Phoenix. We would have expected more haunted houses in the namesake city from Elmore Leonard’s, 3:10 to Yuma. Yuma Nightmares Haunted House is located at 15485 S. Avenue 4 E, Yuma, Arizona.

Nearby Haunted Attractions
Sometimes the best haunted house for you is across the Arizona state line. If you find yourself near the boundary with another state, or that is where the nearest metropolitan area is, there may be a haunted house that’s worth visiting there. I have found these close states with haunted attractions for visitors to also consider in addition to the Arizona haunted houses.
You might want to consider attending a Halloween convention such as the National Haunters Convention May 2013 held in Philadelphia.
