About the Haunted House

Laurel’s House of Horror is Maryland’s scariest haunted house attraction, built inside of an abandoned movie theater.  The Haunted House is open every year from September – November for the Halloween season, and for select dates in April and May for the special 6-date event “Halfway to Halloween”.

Each year’s haunt offers sensory overload, a chilling sense of anticipation and fear, and all-new exhibits and areas.  This past season, the Haunt introduced its newest, creepy town, Georgetown Alley, along with the Industrial Warehouse, the Carnevil of Madness, and The Unknown — in all, FOUR distinct and themed areas.  (Entrance into the Haunted House during the Fall includes all four areas).  Dare to venture through the twists and turns of the Alley’s dark maze and the rest of the elaborate theater. Discover over 28,000 square feet of movie icons, clowns, zombies, snakes, spiders and real ghosts.  Coming up… an all-new haunt for 2017!

You can purchase tickets below or at the box office (at the door) during the season.

FOR YOUR SAFETY : we kindly ask that you do not show up intoxicated for your adventure. This is for your own personal safety, as well as for other guests. We are in an old movie theater — our floors are often slanted, and we have many delicate props and custom-made décor. We reserve the right to remove a guest for safety reasons, particularly if they cannot control themselves due to inebriation. Please save your “party time” for after your experience! We will gladly tell you where great bars are in the area once you finish your game. Thanks! – Laurel’s House of Horror Management.
