Creepy Walk in the Woods

OK, so this one doesn’t exactly fit the category of a haunted house, but some would argue taking a walk through woods filled with hideous creatures is just about as creepy as it gets.

Where: 4100 Grape Street

Price: Starting at $25.

Open: Select days from September 30 through October 31

Reaper’s Hollow

Just the thought of entering an old, dilapidated shack in the middle of a cornfield can send shivers down the spine. That's the haunted backdrop for Reaper's Hollow in Parker.
