The Haunted Woods 2021 | Kids Out and About Salt Lake City

The Haunted Woods 2021

*The event has already taken place on this date: Wed, 10/27/2021
The Haunted Woods is hosted by the Exchange Club of Murray. We are Utah's only family friendly haunted attraction. All proceeds from the event go towards the fight against child abuse and domestic violence in Utah. Guests of all ages enjoy The Haunted Woods by choosing either our "Spooky Trail," or our "Silly Trail." Your admission ticket includes admission into the woods, a cup of hot cocoa and a donut. Absolutely no graphic violence, foul language or demonic beings are allowed in this event. Please, no masks or weapons.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

The not-scary, kid-friendly "Silly Trail" will run from 6 pm - 7 pm each night.  Then, from 7 pm - 9 pm each night we present our "Spooky Trail" for our brave, thrill-seeking guests.  Please allow us a few minutes between 7 pm - 7:05 pm to change trail themes.


Family Friendly

We take pride in being Utah's only family friendly haunted attraction.  We do not allow any graphic violence, foul language, or demonic beings. 

Choose between two different trails!  The "Silly Trail" (6 pm - 7 pm each night) is our fun, scare-free trail that's safe for all ages.  The "Spooky Trail" (7 pm - 9 pm each night) is meant to frighten guests that enjoy the many thrills of the Halloween season.  Which will you choose?

And remember, if your child gets too scared at anytime on either trail, all they have to do is yell "GHOULS BE GONE."  When our volunteers hear that, they know to instantly tone it down and make it fun and not-scary for your group.  We want to make sure that EVERYONE in your group has a great time.


NEW! Theme Nights

New in 2021, each night of our event will feature a unique theme.  We've invited some VERY important guests each night to come and hang out with you in line for meet-n-greets, and some special photo ops.  All guests are invited to also dress up for each night's theme.  Find out more on our Theme Nights page.  Our 2021 theme night schedule:

  • Monday, October 25 - SUPERHERO NIGHT

  • Tuesday, October 26 - DISNEY NIGHT

  • Wednesday, October 27 - STAR WARS NIGHT



1)  Tickets are available online through TICKETLEAP.  Sold as timed ticket reservations.  There's a limited number of tickets available for each half-hour time slot.  Time slots will sell out.

Sweet Treats

Whether you chose the spooky trail or the silly trail, treat yourself to a sweet treat at the end of your adventure.

Every paid admission ticket includes a fresh donut and a cup of hot chocolate.  New in 2021, you can enjoy your refreshments in the newly remodeled Pavilion 5. 

It's the perfect way to end an evening of fun with family and friends this Halloween season.



We work very hard at our event to make sure that EVERYONE can have a great time.  When it comes to trails through the woods, we devote a significant portion of our preparation time to making sure the trails are both wide and smooth. 

We've had strollers and manually-pushed wheelchairs make it through successfully in years past.  But, no matter how hard we try, we're still working in a forest full of trees with complex root systems.  As the result, we cannot make any guarantees for wheelchair or stroller accessibility.

If you are interested in previewing the trail and the terrain before our event begins, please go to our Contact Us page and email us to see if we can make special arrangements.
