Haunted Houses in Ohio Opening or Closing due to COVID-19


Below is a list of haunted houses located in Ohio. We are actively researching these attractions in the hopes to better inform you of their plans open or close for the 2020 haunt season.

As we all know, COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on many activities and events that we all plan to visit each year. Unfortunately, Halloween haunted houses are no exception, and many are already posting whether or not they’ll be open this season.
