One of a Kind Haunt Experience

The Haunted Trail of Balboa Park

The Haunted Trail of Balboa Park is BACK, with two haunts in one; the 3,500 square foot eXperiment Maze and a mile long terrifying outdoor Trail through twisted pines and gnarled oaks.

CNN named The Haunted Trail in the Top 5 BEST HAUNTED ATTRACTIONS in America!!!

The first gauntlet to survive is the 3,500 square foot eXperiment Maze; featuring Little Dead Rising Hood and all her fellow fairy tale freaks. Then it’s on to the mile long trail through the foggy Ghost- filled Graveyard, the Zombie Prisoner filled Ghoul Bus, Demented Doll Island, the possessed Room 666 in the Haunted Hotel, the crazed clown house, and the dark slime of the chainsaw filled southern swamp.

Parking is FREE in Balboa Park

The eXperiment Maze

To earn your passage through the mile long Trail, you must first make your way through the horrifying 3,500 square foot eXperiment maze. Brace yourself as your childhood Fairy Tales turn into adulthood SCARY TALES. Moldy Locks and her 3 Bears come out of hibernation looking for a tasty human morsel! But alas, Little Dead Riding Hood is actually the one to be most afraid of and of course the wild hungry wolves. Your other favorite childhood characters are lurking in the dark corners waiting just for you, including a cluster of Evil Queens buzzing all about and the 3 “not so little” pigs who circle you to get you confused, turned around, repulsed and ultimately devoured.

The Haunted Trail

If you make it through the Experiment Maze, you have earned the next adventure and begin the mile long journey through the Haunted Trail. Feel your way through the dark dense fog of the ghost filled graveyard, meander through the Demented Doll Island fishing village and see the Doll Keeper assemble his creepy creations. Climb aboard the Ghoul Bus where zombie prisoners share the horrifying ride with you, push your way through the adrenaline crazed clown house. Check in to the Haunted Hotel and visit the possessed girl in room number 666. Louisiana zombies have slithered up from the slime of the bayou to chase you through the swamp with their chainsaws blaring. It’s no “walk in the park”!!

Have You Heard?

Had a phenomenal time with friends. It was just the right type of scary. The staff was not overbearing. I loved that the scenes were current with some of the scary movies.
Had a blast. Front scare actors were nice yet scary. All the trail actors were energetic and scary. The maze was a little unnerving, as we kept going he same way and seeing the same actor. Make up was amazing. Loved the bus and graveyard. Even the employees in the front and front lines come out and scare you.
