Just as much as the candy, Halloween
is a holiday of frights and scares, and there are a number of good Oklahoma City Haunted Houses. Here is a list with information on some of the best Haunted Houses in Oklahoma City.
Beginning in early October each month, Oklahoma City's amusement park Frontier City presents "Frightfest." When the sun goes down, the frights come out, and the park has a large and fairly scary haunted house for the older kids and grown-ups. Admission is $5 in addition to regular park admission.
A metro favorite, the Bricktown Haunted Warehouse returns for its 27th season this year, again at the Bricktown Coca-Cola Events Center. It's "20,000 square feet of pure terror, and ou can check it out October 5-7, October 12-14 and from the 17th through the 31st. For more information, call (405) 236-4143.

Located at 2701 W. 10th in El Reno, the Trail of Terror is one of the more intense haunted house experiences in Oklahoma City. In 2009, they added a Haunted Barn, and the actors really go all out to scare you. It's open from 6:30 to 10 p.m. October 22 & 23 and 6:30 to 11 p.m. October 29 and 30. Admission is $7 per person.
The newest addition to the metro area scare scene arrived in 2011 and is expanded for 2012. Guthrie residents remember it as the old Harvey's Steakhouse building Highway 77, 2 blocks north of Cimarron Bridge, but now it's a prime destination for Halloween holiday horror. In addition to Halloween night, the haunted house is open from 7 p.m. to midnight every Friday and Saturday beginning October 5th. Admission is $12, or only $10 if you bring a copy of the Guthrie Haunts Flyer
With organizers dubbing it the "scariest place in Oklahoma," Ultimate Terrors is a multi-faceted Oklahoma City Haunted House. In fact, it features 3 themed haunted houses: Skull Manor explores the legend of the Skull family, Code Blue is a tour of the family's factory, and 3-D Chaos takes it to the next level. There are also vendors, paintball games, spinning tunnels and more. Ultimate Terrors is located on Northwest Expressway between Meridian and MacArthur, and individual house tickets start at $10, with packages available for multiple attractions.
Though they are typically one night affairs, don't forget that you have haunted house options at some of the area community events. For example, Moore's Little River Park has the Trail of Fears, a one-third mile trek through the haunted woods, and Yukon's annual Spooksville event has a haunted house as well.
