9 Terrifying Haunted Houses in Fort Collins, Loveland + Northern Colorado

This post was updated on September 18, 2018 to include current information and recommendations.

Fall means we get to celebrate the harvest and the cooler weather with local pumpkin patches, petting zoos, seasonal treats and family fun. But for just a few weeks during this cozy season, these once family-friendly attractions turn terrifying. Halloween brings candy, costumes and kid-friendly events but it also brings screams, zombies and haunted corn mazes. In fact, you may want to leave the kids at home for some of the bone-chilling attractions listed below.

Preview the region’s thrilling options here and see how many you can get through before October 31st. Good luck!


Jack Lantern’s Corn Maze of Carnage | Fort Collins

During the day, Jack Lantern’s Corn Maze is a festive, family-friendly harvest celebration. With two pumpkin patches, a non-haunted day time maze, bounce houses, pedal cars, farm animals and trick-or-treating, it’s a must-visit for families all over Northern Colorado. When the sun goes down the monsters, zombies and ghosts creep out of the shadows! By moonlight, the 20-acre corn maze turns into a bone-chilling adventure. The bravest of your group are invited to jump on the Haunted Hayride for a thrilling ride through the maze of carnage itself.

Scream Acres | La Salle

Just minutes south of Greeley, Fritzler Farm Park is filled with fun during the day—from the pedal go-carts to the pumpkin cannon. But beginning the night of September 28th, the kid-friendly farm and maze turn into Scream Acres. Filled with visual and sound effects, monsters and chainsaw-wielding madmen, you’re guaranteed a scare in this haunted maze.

Creepy Walk in the Woods is exactly what it sounds like so leave the kids at home for this one. Different from all the other haunted houses and haunted corn fields in the area, this experience drops you right in the middle of the terrifying Savage Woods at the base of Devil’s Backbone. Unguided, you’ll have to find your way through frightening encounters and past terrifying monsters. This year, the woods will be bringing you all the screams you can handle October 12th, 13th, 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th. Admission is $20 per person, gates open at 6 p.m. and tours start at 7 p.m.


Harrington’s HAAunted House of Horrors | Loveland

Each year, Harrington Arts Alliance puts together their most successful fundraiser and one of the most fun haunted attractions in Northern Colorado. This year, you can get scared (and support the art community) on the nights of October 19th, 20th, 26th, 27th, 28th and 31st. For updates on the venue and the attractions, follow the Harrington HAAunted House Facebook page!


Nightmare City | Greeley

Nightmare City began as a simple set up in a family home then debuted as a full-fledged haunted house next to the Greeley Mall in 2016. Now, their location next to the ARC on 27th offers a whole new lineup of terror. Inspired by all of our worst nightmares, each room is different and terrifying in its own way. Your journey through may feel disjointed, but that’s exactly what they’re going for; one minute you’ll be in a loud, adrenaline-pumping space and the next you’ll be creeping through an eerily quiet bedroom. For sneak peeks, follow the team on Facebook! And check out pricing and schedule information on the website


Terror in the Corn | Erie

By day, Anderson Farms is one of Northern Colorado’s beloved pumpkin patches and fall attractions. But by night, you’ll find fewer farm animals and lot more screams. Terror in the Corn is a 30-minute, three part haunt. The tour begins on a wild hayride through the cornfield. Then, when you’re left in the middle of the field, you’ll have to make your way through it only to find yourself at the third and final stop: a haunted ghost town. Each part travels along a single trail, so you won’t get lost—but you will get scared! Buy your tickets ahead of time and you can reserve your day and time to reduce your time waiting in line.


Haunted Field of Screams | Thornton

Haunted Houses in Northern Colorado, Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley

One hour south of Fort Collins, Colorado’s largest haunted attraction offers four terrifying haunted experiences at one location. And in 2018, they’re all brand new! Backing the famously haunted Riverdale Road in Thornton, the 30-acre corn field is transforming into Condemned, Zombie Paintball Massacre, Dead Man’s Maze and Carnevil. Get more information on each experience here and buy your tickets online


The Frightmare Compound | Westminster

Founded in 1983, the Frightmare Compound was the first haunted house in the Denver area, is now world famous, and it’s just one hour south of FoCo! Founder Brad Holder built the house over a span of 16 years until he became fatally ill and, according to rumors, was buried on the grounds. After years of experience and honing, it has become one of the best rated haunted houses in Colorado which means it’s not for the faint of heart (or the kids).
