We won’t keep you waiting for countless hours in lines and then herd you through. We aren’t just a haunted attraction, we’re a complete Halloween experience!

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. You can also check out one of these haunted house listings for nearby states for more haunted fun: Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
