Below is a list of Theme Park Halloween Attractions in Los Angeles and the surrounding area. These are the big guns of the Halloween season: year-round entertainment centers like Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Six Flags Magic Mountain that put on special Halloween haunts during October. Typically, these offer multiple seasonal attractions, including haunted houses, haunted mazes, and their year-round rides redressed for Halloween. Not all of theme are located in Los Angeles, but all of them are easily accessible by freeway.
In order to distinguish between these elaborate Halloween attractions and smaller scale Halloween events that take place in major tourist venues (like the Los Angeles Zoo and the Aquarium of the Pacific), here we include attractions that provide a full night (or day)’s worth of Halloween entertainment, not merely a sideshow on top of their usual attractions. Each of these attractions is listed on its own webpage.
Disneyland’s Halloween Time and Legoland’s Brick-or-Treat are appropriate for younger Halloween fans. If you are seeking real scares, Knott’s Scary Farm is the longest-running and the largest Halloween event; Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights is the most elaborate haunted theme park attraction. We size up the differences between the adult-oriented Halloween haunts in this article: What Are the Best Halloween Theme Park Attractions in Los Angeles?
