It simply wouldn’t be Halloween without getting the crap scared out of you by clowns, zombies, evil doctors and other terrors at a haunted house. Get your freak on this October at one of these haunted houses in Fort Wayne and the surrounding area.
8965 Auburn Road, Fort Wayne
Attractions: Tour the castle, the Black Forest or both — as long as you’re prepared to scream. The tours are scary enough to frighten anyone but friendly enough for the whole family.
Hours: 7 to 11 p.m. Friday & Saturday, 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday & Thursday
Cost: $10 to $16
116 E. Market St., Columbia City
Attractions: Tour the jail and meet the jail’s various residents from the underworld, including landscaper Cutter and Bailey the evil clown, and take a coffin ride… if you dare.
Hours: 7 to 11 p.m. Friday & Saturday, 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday
Cost: $5 to $20
4410 Arden Dr., Fort Wayne
Attractions: You and your group of friends will be locked in a room for 60 minutes — and you can only escape early if you find all of the clues, solve the problem and escape. The Serial Killer Sleuth room is the most haunting, but you can also try The Office of Secret Agent 22 or The Missing Starlet.
Hours: Hours vary, rooms can be booked online in advance.
Cost: Bookings start at $24.99 – $29.99 for one person.
