Halloween 2021: Metro Phoenix Haunted Houses List

We are quickly approaching October, the temperatures are slowly coming down and that means spooky season is upon us.

With the pandemic restrictions last year, many missed out on getting their annual scare on at one of the valley’s haunted houses.

The popular haunted houses such as Fear Farm and 13th Floor, are back and they have added new sinister and gory themes to scare all those who dare to enter.

Here is a list of haunted attractions that are open this year.

AZ FIELD OF SCREAMS

Starting Friday, Oct. 1, visit Glendale’s haunted corn maze, AZ Field of Screams. This attraction will be open for the season with “new spine-chilling scenes.” For younger ones or those not looking for a good scare, there is also a family-friendly maze at the site. Opening night will have a special admission price of $18.
