As Halloween is fast approaching, you’re probably thinking that between your busy work, class, and extracurricular schedule, you haven’t even had time to properly get into the fall spirit. Well not to worry, there’s still some time before our favorite ghoulish holiday comes, so here are some fun things to do around Salt Lake City to get you into the festivities of Halloween.
Fear Factory is a haunted factory located on 666 W 800 S in Salt Lake, and even its address is terrifying! In the late 1800’s it was used as a cement factory, a time period where manufacturing was a deadly a dangerous work. Fear Factory’s unique history paired with its haunting ghouls is just what you need to spice up your Halloween. Not to mention they have a zip line on top of their building called Last Ride, so if you are still looking for some scares after going through, try taking a “Last Ride.”
What’s better than an amusement park, some cotton candy, and haunted attractions all in one? Nothing. The answer is nothing. Head over to Lagoon’s Frightmares if you have a free weekend. It’ll be a spooky experience for sure between riding the steepest dropping rollercoaster in North America: the Cannibal, and finding your way out of blood-curdling haunted houses.
Black Island Farms
Black Island Farms holds Utah’s largest corn maze, along with multiple different mazes spanning 26 acres and ranging difficulties. There’s no way to get into the Halloween spirit more than getting lost in a corn maze. Especially if it’s a haunted corn maze, which the farm offers.
Wheeler Farm Pumpkin Patch
To top off your Halloween festivities, visit Wheeler Farm’s pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin to carve. There are few things as quintessentially pleasing as going to a pumpkin patch so be sure to put this on your list.
