Kansas City (see Kansas City, MO) / Topeka

For some reason, ghosts prefer Missouri to Kansas. So you’ll find that most of them have set up shop in Kansas City, Missouri instead of the fine state of Kansas.  However there are plenty of zombies in Kansas.

Also known as the Haunted Forest, this attraction features one of the longest and scariest attractions in Kansas.  Now celebrating its 33rd year.  Tickets are $17.  It is open Friday and Saturday nights from dark until 1 am on Friday and Saturday or 11 pm other nights.  Not intended for children as there are “things” in the forest looking back at you.

World At War Zombie Apocalypse – 811 E. 10th, Wichita, Kansas 67214.
An indoor haunted house attraction full of zombies.  There are infested human across the world with the zombie virus.  Be very careful. ( Have not seen any 2014 information.)

Hays City was a violent town during the American Old West, with famous residents such as Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane and George Custer. But when Dodge City rose in popularity, the outlaws, and ghosts, left Hays behind for other pastures.

Chetopa (near Joplin MO)
There’s nothing else in a small town to do other than stir up trouble. So we expect these haunts to be pretty fierce.

Shattered Souls Haunted House,  118 S. 8th, Independence, KS
Tickets are $12 to go through Shattered Souls Haunted House and Shattered Vision 3D.  Two haunts for the one low price.  Attractions are open 7 pm to 11 pm every Friday and Saturday starting October 16th.
