If you’re looking for a good scare this Halloween, look no further! Below are a collection of the creepiest haunts in Hawaii, tried and tested by yours truly!
1. The Outbreak Experience
The Outbreak Experience; the closest you’ll ever get to a zombie apocalypse! (And everyone wants that right?! No? Just me?)
Unlike any attraction we’ve ever been too, The Outbreak Experience is a haunted hybrid set in an abandoned warehouse; being part haunted house, and part live theatrical performance. At this attraction we had to retrieve objects, find clues, and interact with cast members; all while escaping from the clutches of flesh-eating zombies. It was absolutely intense to say the least!
The warehouse setting really fit the mood; it seriously felt like we stepped into an episode of The Walking Dead. There’s supposed to be no running due to safety reasons, but everything was so horrifyingly real, that rule went right out the window from the get-go. You need to check out The Outbreak Experience!
Location: Ward Village; 1020 Auahi St. Bldg. 3 Honolulu, HI 96814
Dates: October 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 28, 29, 30, and 31. From 6:30pm-11pm
Price: $20 (Available online here!)
2. Scream 808 – The Revenge of Dr. Carnage & General Savages Zombie Paintball
Scream 808 has procured 2 new attractions this year, The Revenge of Dr. Carnage and General Savage’s Zombie Uprising. These two attractions combine together and give you a frighteningly exciting Halloween experience; one thats unique and packed full of action!
The Revenge of Dr. Carnage is an intricate maze of dark corners and actors capitalizing on shock factor. The area featuring Dr. Carnage himself was very life-like and one of the more terrifying haunted house performances I’ve ever seen. Inside this haunted house was also a ‘spinning vortex’, which was a super trippy optical illusion type of set up. Theres a bridge you need to cross inside a spinning wheel, and while your world feels like it’s turning upside down, there are contortionist girls screaming and running at you. It’s super unique and really jarring!
At the end of the haunted house you get to participate in Zombie Paintball. Theres an area with 3 zombies walking around, and you’re handed a paintball gun ready to fire, giving you 12 shots at the undead. Although we thought the zombie paintball experience would be a bit different, it was still a nice switch up, and more of what we would like to see at future haunted houses!
Location: 445 Cooke St, Honolulu HI
Dates: October 23 – November 1, 7pm

5. Nightmares Live at Dole Plantations
Nightmares at Dole Plantation 3 features 2 haunting attractions this year; a haunted house called “House of Nightmares”, and a creepy train ride called “The Nightmare Express”.
The Train ride goes around the plantation in complete darkness, narrated with 3 ghost stories by Lopaka Kapanui. I wish there were actors that popped out during the ride; now that would have been creepy! Note that the stories might not be suitable for children.
The House of Nightmares was a walkthrough that featured different themed areas of scares. There was even a Christmas horror story type of room which was odd, but featured one of the most terrifying actors I’ve ever seen! This house has some great hiding places, perfect to give that ultimate shock factor.
