We promise you'll have a wicked good time at a haunted house for kids. Many of New York's horror havens turn the dial down a notch when it comes to little ghosts and goblins, so expect screams of delight!
You and the family can wander through spooky attractions and enjoy seasonal goodies along the way: fun mirrors, cool costumes, corn mazes and more! Don't worry: Those sinister characters who typically follow guests around with a chainsaw won't be anywhere in sight. (Thank goodness.) However, if you have tweens or teens in your brood who don't mind having their dreams filled to the brim with fright, go all out with a nighttime haunted house tour!

This year, there are new rules in place by the state for visitors of all ages. Low-risk indoor activities like haunted houses must follow the proper social distancing protocol, require all guests wear a face masks (not just Halloween masks) and limit their capacity. If you're searching for a haunted house for kids that isn't on the list (like the one at Queens County Farm), note that some attractions are not running this year.
