The Hex House – Tulsa
Tulsans may have the corner on the horror market. The Hex House is for true thrill seekers. Based on a true crime story involving murder and cults, The Hex House will rattle your sense of fear as you travel through a specially-constructed house inside a block building, moving from room to room, unsure of what to expect. The Hex House uses authentic rooms to provide realism for guests – bedrooms may appear to be neatly cleaned with made-up beds. As you move through the room, your mind starts wondering where the scare will come from. The closet? From under the bed? Sometimes, it may be the unexpected – like the thoughts put in your head – that may be enough to scare you. But, actors may follow guests around the home, waiting for the perfect time to spring into action and scare the tears out of you. The Hex House isn’t for the faint-hearted; be prepared to be scared! Really scared! The Hex House’s actors are one of only a few of the haunted houses in Oklahoma allowed to touch guests. So as you sneak down a hallway or try to find your way through a darkened room, that’s when someone may approach you from a corner or from a sofa. Regardless, fear will consume your inner being and you’ll pray for the terror to end quickly. Then, as you exit the Hex House, you’ll want to plan your next visit, as no two visits are the same. The Hex House is recommended for people ages 13 and older. Rise of the Living Dead – featuring zombies – is a sister horror spot to the Hex House. https://www.tulsahexhouse.com/
Psycho Path – Sperry
You and seven fellow travelers climb aboard a wagon following a short walk in darkness, preparing for a 20-minute ride through a wooded area featuring realistic sets and props. The fall weather presents beautiful sounds and scenery – leaves rustling underneath the scareage – a custom-built quiet-sounding vehicle, the moon illuminating the view of silhouetted trees and bushes. Suddenly, you see something out of the corner of your eye. What was it? A local coyote? Or maybe another night predator. You travel farther along, listening to the sounds – some manmade, some not. You become tense, sensing something isn’t right as you pass the woods. The sounds you heard earlier intensify. Then, screams break the silence as creatures jump out from nowhere, attacking your wagon. You pray for the ride to end. To say you’ll be scared by the end of your experience on the dark ride is an understatement. Psycho Path is considered one of the scariest haunted houses in Oklahoma. While an age minimum isn’t enforced, adults are recommended to decide if their child is mature enough to handle the experience. psychopathhaunt.com/

The Asylum – Nowata
You can check in to The Asylum, but will you check out? The Nowata attraction provides guests with an interactive experience based in a 1940s sanitarium, where the staff has gone missing and the inmates are indeed running the asylum. As a nurse or doctor approach, you may be asked to help with another “patient,” or you may become that patient. The haunted attraction relies on providing psychological scares, rather than relying on physical hauntings, such as someone jumping out behind a door. But, don’t think you’re safe from being spooked by inmates rounding the corner. Madness prevails at The Asylum. While The Asylum doesn’t have an age limit, parents are asked to determine if their child can handle realistic interactive horror scenes. okasylum.com/
Scareport on the Airport – Guthrie
As if walking down a row of porta potties isn’t scary enough by itself, imagine the door opening and a crazed clown or creature stares at you. Now, add darkness and a clown leading you on the walk to death, err, tour through an abandoned airport grounds and you’ve got the makings of a scary Halloween haunt. As you survive the porta potties gauntlet at Scareport on the Airport, you’re led through an underground tunnel, where on the other side you’ll encounter demonic and frightful characters in an open field, with no place to hide. You’re not going to worry about missing a flight; you’ll worry about surviving the night. With the experience being on the scary side, parents may not want to bring children under 13.
Trail of Fears – Lawton
Oklahoma’s largest haunted attraction, Trail of Fears features a few options for people who love to be scared. How about a living out someone’s nightmare? Psychotic Nightmare takes you into the middle of a woman’s frightening dreams, where demons and ghouls roam. You must find a way to survive the deathly dream. The Experiment takes you to the excavation site of Dr. Kultra and his team, where they conducted heinous medical practices on unsuspecting victims. What happened to the victims? Try to survive the night as they reveal themselves to you. Fans of demonic circuses will love Cirque De Morte, as the ringleader welcomes you to the scariest 3-D circus in Oklahoma – creatures performing before your very eyes. Will you make it out of the circus alive? With its haunts considered on the scary side, parents may want to consider if their children are mature enough for them.
