Arx Mortis - Killen, AL
Open weekends starting in late September. Open most Thursday through Sundays in October plus other dates. Check web page for details. Arx Mortis is one of the best haunted venues in Alabama. It is really 3 experiences in one complex. You will be terrified so it is worth the time to drive to this haunt. Complete with parking, restrooms, concession stand, and live music you can and should expect to spend several hours at Arx Mortis. Covington Clinic is the haunted house. It is a 40-50,000 square foot building. It is so scary they have built in 23 escape exits for those who can not complete the tour. The fright is based on darkness, claustrophobia, gore and horror. The theme is a clinic that has created zombies. The locals are tricked and experimented on while fighting a bio-hazard. The building has a funeral parlor, coffins, embalming area, morgue, experimentation labs and some of the best animatronics and movie quality sound and light experience you will find anywhere in the country.

While rated PG 13 the haunts permit children of any age to enter and scream.
Darkwood Farms Walking Dead Maze - Arab, AL
I would consider Darkwood Farms a locals maze in Alabama. The attraction has both a haunted house and trail for the one low price. Located in the town of Arab, Walking Dead Maze is approximate 30 miles outside of Huntsville, Alabama. The trail is very dark with actors providing the surprise and scare. The house has blood and actors with chainsaws. It takes about 10 minutes to tour both attractions. It opens at 7:30 pm and runs until finished. Discounts available for donated canned food items.

Each October it becomes Zombie Attack, a spook house in Alabama. Zombie Attack is open each Friday and Saturday from 7pm to midnight. This is a charity haunt featuring, zombies, blood, hospital sittings, ghosts and both man made and paranormal ghosts. It takes approximately 15-20 minutes to go through the building.
