Halloween may just be my favorite holiday. For most Miamians it’s an excuse to buy the skimpiest costume they can find and prance around in super high heels. But for this Miami girl that’s not the case – I like to be scared (hence why I went to Halloween Horror nights).
For those of you who want to be scared see below for four creepy things to do for Halloween. Oh, and you just might want to bring an extra pair of… you know what.
House of Horror Amusement Park
Miami International Mall
1455 NW 107th Ave. | Doral, FL
Price: $15 – $25
This is actually the largest haunted house in South Florida. It’s where the apprehension of torment meets the release of terror through the climax of a fully realized scream. Thirty rooms of soul-crushing panic will make the $25 ticket price money well spent. After you complete the haunted house, you can then go on some of the carnival rides, which are pretty creepy themselves.
Terror in the Jungle
1111 Parrot Jungle Trail | Miami, FL
Price: $45 – $55
Talk about scary. Let me set the scene for you… A plane carrying toxic bio-chemicals from a research lab in Mexico flew off course and crashed into the ruins of the Aztec city surrounded by a lush tropical jungle. The bio-chemicals mutated the jungle life and local Indians into half dead creatures who feed on all the living things. The Aztec Indians prayed to their gods for forgiveness and instead, the Gods unleashed their demon called the HUNTER, which devoured everything living in its path. Welcome to – Terror in the Jungle.
Escape the Quest
1234 Washington Ave. | Miami Beach, FL
Price: $60 – $100
The game is simple. You are placed in a mental hospital, apartment or prison. You are given clues to solve puzzles. And you have just 60 minutes to escape the room, or else… Have you ever seen the movie SAW? “The jigsaw piece that I cut from my subjects was only ever meant to be a symbol that that subject was missing something. A vital piece of the human puzzle. The survival instinct.” Jigsaw, SAW 2.
Welcome to Elm Street: A Freddy Double Feature
O Cinema Miami Shores at Miami Theater Center
9806 NE 2nd Ave. | Miami Shores, FL
"One, two Freddy's coming for you. Three, four better lock the door." Since its debut in 1984, Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street has burned itself into the terrified brains of generations. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the movie O Cinema will be hosting a double feature showing both A Nightmare on Elm Street and Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. Get excited – it's going to be pretty scary.
