Although there may be other activities and events associated with these haunted attractions, the main event is probably the terrifying, horrifying, spine-chilling haunted house(s). You'll find that typically they are not recommended for young children or people with weak hearts. Frankly, if you are squeamish or frighten easily, I probably don't recommend these at all. But if you like a good, gruesome scare, you have plenty of haunted attractions in the Phoenix area from which to choose.
The haunted attractions listed here are presented in date order. Locations sometimes change, so check the address online before you get in the car and drive. Of course, there are other ways to celebrate Halloween, and you'll find those here:
