Fridays and Saturdays, 6 p.m. until full.
All ages, not recommended for young children

Open for more than 30 years, the Haunted Dungeons combine spooks and scares with some true-to-life harrowing history: Many soldiers died here during the battle of 1812, and Fort Howard was used for training during the Vietnam War. The one- to two-hour walking tour leads thrill seekers through haunted woods and ex-military bunkers, with every chamber of the dungeon boasting a new boo or two.

Valley of the Haunted
4722 Mellow Rd
White Hall, MD 21161

Fridays and Saturdays, 6:30-10:30 p.m.
Sundays. 2-6 p.m.
Trail: Ages 10 and up, children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Little Haunts: Children 10 and younger.

Just because this spooky camp is put on by the Boys and Girls Clubs of Harford County doesn’t mean it’s not totally terrifying. Built around the disturbing story of a madwoman named Mary and a deranged butcher, the trail is full of plenty of guts and gore—definitely not for the faint of heart. But don’t worry: Valley of the Haunted also offers not-so-scary “Little Haunts Sundays,” featuring trick-or-treating, games, crafts, hay rides, pumpkin painting, costume contests and more.

Bennett’s Curse
791 W Ostend St
Baltimore, MD 21230

Fridays and Saturdays, 7-11 p.m. (beginning Sept. 23). Thursdays and Sundays. 7-10 p.m. (beginning Oct. 9).
Not recommended for young children.

Time to get serious—rated the #1 haunted attraction in the DMV and #13 in the nation, Bennett’s Curse is just about as scary as it gets in Baltimore. Tucked away near the Ravens’ stadium, this city-limits horrorfest has four main attractions: the possessed Underworld Haunted House, flaming Inferno 3D, classically creepy Legends of Halloween and bone-chilling Ravenbrook Asylum. Worst of all? This year’s bonus attraction, Coulrophobia…yep, that means “fear of clowns.”

Cox’s Point Haunted Mansion
820 Riverside Drive
Essex, MD 21221
coxspoint.org

Fridays and Saturdays, 7-11 p.m.
All ages, not recommended for young children

In operation for 45 years, the Cox’s Point Mansion is one of Maryland’s oldest haunted attractions. The spot capitalizes on its antique spook-power with features like the “horror-vator,” a creepy elevator that takes horror lovers from haunt to haunt. Even the location is a little eerie: The Mansion is surrounded by water on three sides, making it feel like you’re stuck on a sinister island.

Happy Haunting!
