Dark Side of the Abbey

Head inside the wedding chapel known as The Abbey in Cañon City, and be ready to scream. This attraction makes the scariest haunted house in Colorado list by featuring two frightful attractions, along with a special paranormal investigation.

The Frightmare Compound

The Frightmare Compound is another Colorado haunted house that serves up multiple attractions, one of which may be haunted by the compound’s founder, Brad Holder. The story says Holder fell ill and died after 16 years of continuous work on his haunted house, and he’s buried somewhere underneath the structure.

The potential for an authentic haunting from Holder shoots this one to the top of the list of the scariest haunted houses in Colorado. You’re also sure to enjoy sliding through caverns, scrambling through catacombs, and crawling through the wet swamplands where even more terror awaits.

Jack Lantern’s Corn Maze of Carnage

The name alone can draw you toward this haunted haven, which features a romp through a pitch black corn maze as well as a haunted hayride. The moon serves as your only lights as you wander through the cornstalks, with monsters and other abominations eagerly awaiting your arrival.

This one gets a scary nod for being in an actual cornfield. Cornfields give off a creepy vibe, even in broad daylight. Who knows what kinds of creatures lurk around those places in the dark?

The Asylum

The spooky story behind The Asylum firmly places it on the scariest haunted house in Colorado list. Legend has it that 200 bodies were secretly buried beneath the building – all of them were former patients and staff of the old asylum.

In addition to lost souls roaming freely throughout the structure, you’ll also glimpse the gruesome remains of others, one of which is waiting near the entrance on an autopsy table. A visit to this attraction is more than just a leisurely tour- you also engage in a game where you and your group must uncover clues to get out alive.
