Enter At Your Own Risk: Check These 5 Haunted Houses in West Michigan
Enter at your own risk...
Haunted houses are one of my favorite in-person experiences of Halloween.
The act of being scared while walking through scary houses or mazes with friends and/or family sounds like a spooktacular time.
If you are as unique as I am, check out these haunted attractions this season.
The Haunt (Wyoming, Michigan)
"A free nightmare with every ticket."
For over 20 years, The Haunt is West Michigan's "premier haunted attraction."
With one ticket, you can get a one-way pass to all of the blood-curling attractions.
- Join a strange cult in Forsaken
- An unknown disease has taken over in Aftermath
- Disappearances are being reported at the abandoned Frenzy Circus
- Tour an 'abandoned hospital" through the Aberration

If this excites in the most haunting ways, The Haunt's opening night is this Friday at 7:00 PM.
General admission tickets are $30 and VIP/Fast Pass is $45 each.
Haunt Park: Psycho Ward Haunted House (Kalamazoo, Michigan)
Voted the #1 haunted attraction in Kalamazoo and Top 10 Halloween attractions in Michigan by MLive, it would be wrong of me to not feature this haunted house.
Western Harold even claims they "pissed my pants" when visiting Haunt Park.
With 4 different attractions, this is endless ways to get scared.
- Psycho Ward
According to the website, Floyd Cranston, the state's most ruthless killer, is creeping around the psychiatric prison. Over a decade later, a horror show has caused Floyd to be a little more unhinged.
You are transported into a world with terrifying and uncontrollable undead figures.
- The Mansion
The way the website describes The Mansion makes me want to grab a ticket.
"The Mansion is not for the faint of heart. The dead haunt the hallways and you never know what to expect around each turn of the twisted hallways."
- Zombie Revenge
If you are a fan of The Walking Dead, this might be the attraction for you.
Attendees will get 150 rounds to help get rid of the walking dead.
Ticket prices vary depending on which attraction you want to see.
- $15 - Only one attraction
- $20 - Psycho Ward & Nightmares
- $25 - Psycho Ward, Nightmares & Zombie Revenge Shoot
- $30 - Psycho Ward, Nightmares, Zombie Revenge Shoot & The Mansion
Witches of New Salem (Dorr, Michigan)
As someone who believes that staying out of the woods is the best for my mental health, however with this attraction I may change my mind.
"Take a stroll down one of the two paths in the Witches Woods. It's up to you on "Witch" path to take, whether you take the "twisted" or the "wicked" you will scream around every corner. If you are really up for a challenge, try the haunted corn maze. It will leave you out of breath as you crawl, walk or run your way through the twist and turns as you try to escape the crazy atmosphere. Come out during the daytime and enjoy our kin friendly activities, such as our daytime corn maze, which is void of ghouls. We have variety of family oriented fun for all ages."
Tickets are going for $25 per person for nighttime fun.
