Duluth Haunted ShipThe nearly 700ft vintage ore boat – the S.S. William A. Irvin in Duluth – will once again put on its creepy finery this October because the Haunt is on! The crew attends national haunting conventions and the actors graduate from scare school to forge a world of horror, tormenting all the senses. This year’s theme “What are You Afraid of?” aims to answer that question by subjecting guests to almost every conceivable fright. This includes visual scares, but also smells, sounds, lights, temperature changes and maybe the occasional mild shock.
Every year the haunt is made anew with fresh horrors. Can You Navigate Duluth’s Haunted Ship?

Boo At The Zoo – Lake Superior Zoo, Duluth. Your family’s annual fall tradition is back on October 15, 22, and 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.!

Haunted Shack Haunted Ridge – in Carlton, Minnesota. Minnesota’s Scariest Haunted House & Hayride.
The Haunted Shack started several years ago as a community driven haunted house. It was just a small three hour production held in a small 600 square foot basement of the local fire hall in Gary New Duluth. Since then a great deal of effort has helped the shack expand into a thriving haunted attraction!

Devil’s Getaway Haunted Trail – in Finlayson, Minnesota. Have a BIG scare for a little buck! The Haunted Trail is a half mile trek through the forest in which you face your fears as they come to life before your very eyes. There is no turning back once you are dropped off by the hayride, as that would be foolish of yourself. You must face the fears before you. The trail is dark and gloomy with things that stalk you from a distance, with bloody red eyes, their intent unknown. Other creatures watch your every move. Orbs of light can be seen in the distance, not natural or man-made. They flicker on and off, as if they’re trying to talk. You here disembodied voices speaking to you, foretelling your fate to whom behold.
