While Houston offers several Halloween-themed events and attractions safe for the littlest trick-or-treater, like the Zoo Boo or Scream on the Green, those of you with older children may want something a little stronger in the scare department. We've rounded up a list of Houston area haunted houses that are not for the faint of heart - most of these destinations have age requirements of 12 and up. If you're feeling daring, take a trip to one of these haunted horrors, and don't forget to scream at least a little softer than your pre-teen.

Check out our Halloween Fun Guide for more seasonal events and activities.


2020 update: Note that due to COVID-19, these haunted attractions are still in the process of considering whether and how to open for the season. Please check back for updates closer to Halloween.
