The Haunted Trail, Balboa Park: This is no simple walk in the park.  San Diego’s only outdoor haunted trail and Experiment Maze is located in the world famous Balboa Park.  At a mile long, you want to be sure to watch your back! Please be aware, this is not for children under 10 or for those who are faint of heart. The Experiment Maze is a challenging, scary and “purge-infested terror!” Ticket prices include both the Trail and Maze.  Buy online or purchase tickets at ticket booth. hauntedtrail.net

The Haunted Hotel, Downtown Gaslamp: Named  #2 of the top 13 haunts in the United States, and featured on the Travel Channel’s show “America’s Scariest Haunts,” The Haunted Hotel is the longest running haunted house in San Diego. Enjoy, or rather scream your way through  the “Hellevator,” stroll down dark hallways, see Zombies, and try to make your way through the muck and mire of the Hillbilly swamp.  Enter at your own risk.  424 Market Street. 619-696-SCARE. hauntedhotel.com.
