Photo Gallery | NEWS10 SCARATHON: 6 of Sacramento's Most Horrific Haunted Attractions

For some, Halloween brings to mind images  of beautiful Fall scenery, youngsters dressed up in cute costumes and quaint decorations sprinkled throughout the home.

However, for others, All Hallow’s Eve evokes images of gruesome ghouls, knife-wielding maniacs, possessed souls, and hoards of the undead feasting on an endless supply of guts and gore.  For those individuals, Halloween is a time to test one's threshold for terror, and then seek out more when it’s been reached. 

But where in Sacramento can you find places that will deliver the kinds of chills to send your blood pressure soaring higher than a bat across a mist-covered moon?  News10 took on the hunt for some of the biggest and best haunted houses in the area and unearthed 6 demented domains of death, dread and downright fright.   

So if you’re looking for something fun and frightening to do leading up October 31st, check out these mazes of the macabre . They’re sure to satisfy your appetite for terror and leave you longing for next Halloween.

 

HAUNTED HAGAN SCREAM PARK  – Rancho Cordova, CA

Haunted Hagan Scream Park in Rancho Cordova is like nothing else on the west coast. Combining two of the most popular and critically acclaimed haunted houses in the area, Haunted Hagan takes you on a nightmarish trip back in time to the “brutality, greed and filth” that was the old west.

Once aboard the Haunted Hagan Express Train Ride, you’ll journey through the dark and foggy haunted woods into 'The Deadlands' where roaming monsters hungrily await your arrival.

If you survive the Deadlands, three horrific houses of terror stand between you and escape.  Hangtown SideShow houses a collection of the most fearsome freaks this side of the Ol’ Miss.  Get past them and you’ll have to deal with Heartstoppers Haunted House, which is only one of the most feared attractions in the Sacramento area.  And finally, if you’re still in one piece, you’ll come one on one with Haunted Hagan’s newest attraction, Scarecrow’s Maize, where hay-stuffed head seekers trace your every step.

Haunted Hagan’s offers a truly unique approach to the haunted house and is well worth the visit.
