Halloween means haunts and happenings in San Diego and residents of the East Village are conveniently close to a number of amazing local opportunities. Get your costumes ready and brace yourself for some terrifying and tremendous events in the area over the course of the season.

Haunted Hotel

The Haunted Hotel in San Diego’s Gaslamp district is a staple of the season. Celebrating 25 years haunting locals and visitors, the Haunted Hotel features a signature Hellevator and enough zombies and scary clowns to last you until Christmas! This spectacularly spooky venue has been featured on the Travel Channel and was named one of America’s scariest haunts by Haunt World Magazine. And for the bravest of the brave, visit on a Wednesday in October to enjoy the LIGHTS OUT experience. Avoid the lines at the door and get your tickets online here. The Haunted Hotel is open from September 22nd through October 31st so there is no excuse for missing out on this legendary horror.

Haunted Trail

For an outdoor alternative to the Haunted Hotel, head to Balboa Park for their Haunted Trail. Open from September 29th through Halloween night, the trail offers visitors a taste of terror only if they can navigate their way through a disturbing and confusing maze they’ve labeled “The eXperiment”. This haunt is so frightening it is not recommended for anyone under 10 years of age. Get your tickets for the Haunted Trail through Balboa Park here.

Spooktacular Race

And if these haunted hotspots don’t get your heart racing, try running the San Diego Spooktacular Race on October 22nd along the scenic shoreline. Wear a costume and register for the half marathon, 15k, 10k, or 5k run and walk. Everyone is a winner at this fun event with medals and tee shirts for all participants, a costume contest, and post-race festivities for the whole family.
