Latest Updates:
  • 9/16/2014: 2014 information is posted and continues to get updated on a daily basis. If you know of any haunts I am missing, please let me know.
  • 9/25/2014: My first video interview of the season (Haunted Barn) has been posted.
  • 10/2/2014: Congratulations to the winners of the first annual DMHH Awards. And, our Facebook page has passed 1700 likes, and this website had over 500 unique visitors in the first 24 hours of October.
  • 10/3/2014: Ultimate Haunted House reports that due to some technical difficulties, they will not be opening this weekend. Tormented Souls Haunt also was unable to open on Friday due to muddy conditions. I did not know about either until much later, so always check the official website or Facebook page before heading out to a haunt (especially if it has outdoor scenes) to make sure they are operating. I will try to add notes to the Haunted House listing and Calendar when I have updates.
  • 10/4/2014: Over 900 visitors to the Haunted Houses page on Saturday. Please tell the haunts you saw it on DMHauntedHouses.com! Video interviews with Haunted Barn and Linn's Haunted House coming soon. I have updated their entries with more details now that I have gone through both.
  • 10/9/2014: Video interviews with Ankney Haunted Barn and Sleepy Hollow Scream Park posted.
  • 10/10/2014: From a response on their Facebook page, White Water reports: "Due to the new city ordinances put in place by the City of Pleasant Hill, (some of which are nearly impossible to incorporate) the haunted house did not pass inspection and was closed by the city. The owners are trying to get back in business before the month is over." Also, we had over 1000 visitors to this site on Friday, and are over 2100 Likes on our Facebook page.
  • 10/12/2014: 1587 visitors checked out our haunted house index page yesterday, and our Facebook page hit 2200 Likes! Also, a new video interview with Linn's Supermarket Haunted House has been posted.
  • 10/17/2014: WARNING! There is no America Is Haunted "Hell Towers" haunt in Des Moines, as listed on Groupon and various Iowa tourism websites. This is a scam company, preselling tickets for haunts that do not exist. The website was only registered October 1st, and the 866 number they list is also used for a 5K beer run in Kentucky (registered in late September, with a different address). The locations they use all seem to be for-lease warehouses (but they did not realize the Des Moines location is actually being used by a business, and Century 21 confirmed no haunted house there). As of this posting, only 8 Groupons had been purchased so hopefully people are figuring this out and not getting scammed.
  • 10/21/2014: We have passed 2500 Likes on the Facebook page, and had over 1900 visits to the haunted house index page this past Saturday.
  • 10/22/2014: Welcome, Tormented Souls Haunt in Madrid, as our official site sponsor.
  • 10/23/2014: We have passed 2600 Likes on Facebook. Keep 'em coming!
  • Please let the haunts know you saw them on DMHauntedHouses.com!
