The Asylum. Denver, CO

Dubbed Denver’s favorite haunted house The Asylum is made up of 3 horrifying attractions.

Primitive Fear: Walkers: Bloodshed paints the city red after an incurable virus has plagued humankind, leaving the undead desperate for flesh. Your job is to battle through bloodthirsty zombies in hopes of finding sanctuary from these demonic creatures. 

Contagium: The Escape: Enter into the Asylum to discover a body of a victim lost to a ghastly disease waiting for you on an autopsy table. What begins as a tour quickly turns into a trap and a race against the clock for survival. You must work with your group to uncover clues in hopes of making your escape. But hurry, because the chamber where you make your mad search will eventually begin to fill with sedation gas. Get out before you’re the next one on the autopsy table…

Ridgegate: The Condemned: Welcome to Ridgegate Hospital, where the dangerous and deranged patients are the least of your worries and fears. Doctors routinely take patients and visitors into the basement for rituals so horrifying, those who were sane, come out crazed, and those already crazed, return with a deeper, more sickening level of insanity. If you happen to make it past the tortuous staff, beware of the serial-killing nurse who has taken over 30 souls and counting. In Ridgegate, it can sometime be hard to determine who is a friend and who is foe. Don’t be fooled…the nightmarish staff and residents of Ridgegate will surprise you when you least expect it.

Anderson Farms Zombie Paintball and Terror in the Corn. Erie, CO

Terror in the Corn is Colorado’s only haunted hayride & ghost town experience. Their 30 minute three part haunt is one you won’t soon forget. Part one takes you on a hayride into the corn field. Part two drops you off into the middle of the cornfield. You must walk on a single path past scary scenes and hidden ghouls. The third and final part takes you through our haunted ghost town. The entire walking portion is on a single path. This is not in the maze and you will not get lost.

Zombie Paintball Hunt is the first of its kind in Colorado. This unique paintball experience, where you shoot but don’t get shot, is sweeping the nation and will have you begging to come back for more. Guests will be loaded on a wagon and will each have their own paintball gun. One hopper full of paintballs will be handed to each “hunter”.  A path has been made in the cornfield, where the “hunters” will have the chance to shoot paintballs at props and zombie actors as the wagon drives by. The path is dark except for black lights that are attached to the zombie wagons. Guests stay on the wagon for the duration of the activity.

The Frightmare Compound. Westminster, Co

The Frightmare Compound – As you begin your journey into the depths of The Frightmare Compound, be prepared to slide into the heart of the haunted house through catacombs and caverns, as you encounter flesh-starved Zombies and blood sucking creatures. Only to crawl out into the wet swamplands where true horror awaits. If you are lucky enough to have survived this far through the haunted house, you will then travel through the original 2-story barn where words cannot express the complete and utter fear you will experience. If you make it out alive, you have just escaped the most terrifying haunted house in Denver! Good luck!

Lights Out Haunted House – As the most horrifying haunted house for Denver residents, you’ll soon see why not everyone makes it through. For only a few nights a season, they turn off all the lights and allow those who dare to try to get through the dark haunted house.
