It’s finally fall y’all! You know what that means, corn mazes and haunted houses! Colorado has so many that it’s hard to even list them all. This year we were invited to visit quite a few of them, but here are our top picks for the season-
Corn Mazes in Denver
The large corn maze is approximately 20 acres in size and takes a minimum of 40 minutes to complete. Inside the maze there is a smart phone trivia game or a check point game to play. The maze is fun for all ages and is not haunted. An “admission ticket” is good for one entry to the maze.
Maize in the City is one of our favorite places every year, they just have so much to offer that you can easily make a whole day of your visit.
They have the Crazed Corn Maze, pumpkin field, mini maze, pony rides, petting zoo, jumping castle, air slide, obstacle course, playground, corn kernel box, sand art, and more!
One of the coolest things about this maze this year is that they have added FREE scary movies at night (call for dates and times) where you can snuggle up with your loved ones on a blanket in the field and watch a movie together under the stars. We watched a little bit of the movie on our visit, and it was a lot of fun just being outside together.

This Halloween Season, explore the legend of the 13th Floor at one of the most horrifying haunted house experiences ever, the 13th Floor Haunted House!
This was such a great haunt, there were so many really good jump scares, but also really creative rooms in general. There are some displays that are giant, I couldn’t believe the haunted house was big enough to house some of the stuff that was in there.
I would recommend this haunt to anyone looking for a good scare! We truly had such a great time. The actors are amazing, the scenes are very well done, and the timing was perfect!
The 13th Floor Haunted House is located just north of Lower Downtown (LoDo) Denver at I-70 and Brighton Blvd, one block south of the Denver Coliseum and just minutes from Coors Field.
The A Line drops you off at 38th & Blake Station, only an 8 minute walk. It’s only a two mile cab ride from Larimer Square to the 13th Floor!

“Within the walls of the legendary Nightmare Factory, a hidden passage was unearthed! This passage descended two levels into Gordon Cottingham’s Hospital for the Mentally Insane, The Asylum. Much deeper and darker than the previous levels, the Asylum is a damp and musty place infested with spiders, rats, snakes and the endless screams of tortured souls.”

Jason really liked the Asylum, I think he received his first scare of the season walking through this one. Great scenery, really good make-up, the actors were timed perfectly. Awesome haunt!

Every year we go to the Haunted Field of Screams, and every year we have a blast going through the 3 attractions. This one location hosts the Haunted Field of Screams, Dead Man’s Night Maze, and Zombie Paintball.
We usually take our kids to Zombie Paintball, run them home, and return for the haunts. This year however, Zombie Paintball has turned into more of a scare (not friendly for small children) and I think many people were happy about that, we were bummed because our kids love it, but hate scares. Anyway, this year Zombie Paintball really was better than EVER before! They start off with a story line, and then some training on how to kill the zombies. It was a lot more fun, really. We were bummed that the guns still don’t point up high enough to actually shoot zombies that are far away, but it was a good time anyway.
At Zombie Paintball Massacre, survivors must journey through an abandoned farm where the undead wait in the shadows. The objective? To reach the zombie patrol outpost where survivors are trained to use high-powered paintball guns to fight for humankind.
The Dead Man’s Night Maze is a good haunt for newbies, but it’s fun for everyone! A corn maze at night, filled with dead ends, and jump scares!
The Dead Man’s Maze is the original corn maze haunt. With wrong turns and pathways in every direction, getting lost will be easy, but not your biggest fear. There are endless Monsters, Zombies, and other terrifying things that await on your attempt to find your way through. No search party will be sent to assist you on your journey through this dark corn maze, but be assured there are plenty already waiting your arrival!
Finally, the Haunted Field of Screams. This haunt is full of every type of fear; small spaces, clowns, zombies, chainsaws, jump scares. All of the goodies!
The Haunted Field of Screams, now in its 15th year, is our main attraction. The moonlight is your only guide as the daunting 16 foot tall cornstalks surround you on the trail that has pure terror around every corner. So what is your worst nightmare…? Zombies…? Clowns…? Chainsaw Wielding Madmen…? The Walking Dead…? Escaped Insane Asylum Patients? All of your worst fears will be realized as you journey through this cornfield, encountering differently themed scenes and rooms that will test you in every way, and is sure to make you scream!
