Boo! Halloween is almost upon us. Residents of San Diego are putting up their Halloween Decorations and attending fall festivals. Another creepy crawly activity San Diegans love to partake in? Haunted attractions. San Diego is known for The Haunted Hotel, a rather scary and intense haunted house located on the corner of Market and 4th in the Gaslamp District. Every year, the Haunted Hotel opens up in late September, much to the delight of people young and old. It continues on until Nov. 1 this year, so get there while you can! We suggest parking in the Westfield Horton Plaza Parking Garage. Show the parking lot attendant your Haunted Hotel admission ticket and the first three hours are only $5
This year, the Haunted Hotel boasts new rooms as well as some favorites we’ve seen throughout the years. The amount of work that goes into each room is astounding. If you take your time walking through the haunted hotel instead of rushing through it, you’ll notice the immaculate detail that goes into all of the props and actors. You’ll start your journey in a dingy dirty elevator that takes you to a terrifying world. Each room has a different theme, ranging from a clown subway (watch where you sit!), a freezing butchers shop as well as an enchanted forest gone wrong. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself running for your life at the very end of the Haunted Hotel!
