Halloween in San Diego?


Heading to San Diego in October? Here are some great Halloween tricks...or treats.



If you are in the area or traveling to San Diego this October, take a look at some of these events for Halloween. Because San Diego’s weather is so mild in October, many of these sorts of events are held outdoors including one that is set in nature.


Haunted Trail in Balboa Park

Perhaps the best outdoor setting for a terror-filled experience, especially since the park is pretty scary at night any time! The spooky and dark trails are located in the Marston Point section of the Park which is east of Sixth Avenue and Juniper Street in Balboa Park. Look for the orange signs with the ghoulish writing to point you in the right direction.

The Haunted Trail in Balboa Park starts on September 25, 2009 and goes until October 31, 2009. This will allow plenty of time to get the living daylights scared out of you! The Haunted Trail is open from 7pm to 12 Midnight Fridays and Saturdays and 7pm to 11pm Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The monsters and witches take a break on Mondays and Tuesdays except for October 26 and 27, 2009.

Admission: $14.99 per person

For more information, call: (619) 696-SCARE or buy your tickets online.

Please note: This experience is not recommended for gremlins younger than 10 years old.

Haunted Hotel

Rooms decorated to bring back the spirits of Hollywood horror films from the past, the hotel is situated in an old building that probably has stories of its own to tell. The Haunted Hotel is located at 424 Market Street in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. The terror starts on September 25, 2009 and goes until October 31, 2009. Operating hours for the Haunted Hotel are: Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm to 1am and Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7pm to 11pm. The venue is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays except for October 26 & 27, 2009.
