7 Best Haunted Attractions in Minnesota

By the time October rolls around, before winter clenches the North Star State in its grip, Minnesotans are ready for fright. All of the terrifying haunted attractions that spring up across the state are testimony to these. If you’re looking for an evening filled with scares, check out our favorite haunted attractions in Minnesota—if you dare! 

Trail of Terror, Shakopee, MN

The Trail of Terror is the Midwest’s biggest Halloween attraction. Brace yourself for a horrifying hayride and or hoof it on a harrowing hike along the banks of the Minnesota River. Each weekend brings a new event from zombie races to the annual Phantom’s Feast.

Fright at the Farm, Zumbrota, MN

Every October, the town of Zumbrota becomes the scariest place in Southeast Minnesota. This is because the folks at Fright at the Farm, a few minutes outside of Rochester, go all the way to send shivers up your spine and wring paranoia from every step you take.

The Haunting Experience, Cottage Grove, MN

One of the state’s scariest Halloween attractions if The Haunting Experience on Highway 61 in Cottage Grove. In addition to the oldest haunted hayride in Minnesota, The Haunting Experience has a haunted house that is sure to send you home with nightmares—should you make it out at all. They do offer a less-frightening daytime experience, just in case.

Scream Town, Chaska, MN

Scream Town’s eight hugely-harrowing attractions make it one of the state’s biggest, scariest (and most popular) Halloween experiences. Try and avoid the clowns in the Circus Asylum or survive the Zombie Apocalypse. With all the options Scream Town has to offer, it’s an entire (fright) night’s worth of entertainment.

Northern Frights, Garden City, MN

Folks in south-central Minnesota get their share of scare at Northern Frights (“Land of 10,000 Screams”) in Garden City. Northern Frights is the haunted home of five harrowing attractions, including killer clowns in 3D, a terror tunnel and a walk designed to trigger every phobia you can think of.

Molitor’s Haunted Acres, Sauk Rapids, MN

For more than 20 years, Molitor’s Haunted Acres has been terrorizing the fine folks of central Minnesota. If you manage to find your way through the zombie-infested quarry and reach safety, take some time to share your tale with other survivors around the bonfire.

Duluth Haunted Ship, Duluth, MN

Come October, the dry-docked lake boat William A. Irvin, near Duluth’s Canal Park, becomes a 610-foot ghost ship. Haunts from the deep and shipwrecked souls do their best to make you scream as you navigate the darkened decks of this former bulk freighter.
