Miami's Five Spookiest Halloween Attractions

Categories: Culture
Miami has a country-wide rep for being a scary place. Not only is the thought of our multi-cultural population a political conservative's worst nightmare, but the "Miami Zombie" incident earlier this year didn't do much help to win favorable opinions across the nation, either.

Whatever. If there's one thing Miami is in the business for, is the business of fear. (Well, and sex. And drugs. And hotel rooms. But also fear.) And this Halloween season is no exception.

If you get a thrill out of the idea of being chased down by a chainsaw wielding maniac and would pay good money to experience real-life, bone-chilling paranormal activity, you're in luck. From creepy vampire shows to real-life haunted mansions, this October is chock full of spooky haunted attractions for fear enthusiasts of all types.

Can you say coulrophobia?
5. Dr. Wilde's Screamatorium at Zoo Miami, October 10-31
Zoo Miami's full-scale family-friendly fright emporium features 7,000 square feet of graveyard ghouls and goblins. The haunted house is the brainchild of special event design team called Flore de Lisa, which has crafted props and effects for Universal Studios in the past. Expect horror scenes depicting the living dead, graveyards, butcher shops, and deceased creatures roaming around to the music of departed rock legends such as Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. (Naturally, this haunted house may not be suitable for younger children.)

Price: $5
8p.m. to midnight., 12400 SW 152nd Street, Miami, 305-251-0400,
