All Things Salt Lake City in October

INNOVATION IDOL:  ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5TH GRADER?

What can kids possibly teach technology innovators? Quite a lot, actually. Join us for an extra special Leo After Hours event, and Utah Science Technology and Research (USTAR), where local entrepreneurs pitch elementary school students, Shark Tank-style, for real money! Wait, 5th graders are the judges? That’s right. Kids are experts at being brutally honest and asking the tough questions. They are masters at making creative connections that most adults miss. Also, entrepreneurs often struggle with explaining their ideas in simple terms that are accessible and captivating to investors and potential customers. If a 5th grader doesn’t get it, your customers won’t either. So join us for an evening of inspiring ideas, appetizers and more! 


Salt Lake Ghost Tours

Guided by a professional storyteller, guests travel by bus to the great “haunts” of Salt Lake City or Ogden and learn about the ghosts who dwell in historic buildings and cemeteries. Bus tours, cemetery tours, and walking tours are available. 


Living Planet Aquarium
The Haunted Aquarium is back! Our annual Halloween
celebration kicks off Friday the 13th and goes through Halloween. Visit the Aquarium to see fun and spooky decorations lurking throughout our galleries. Join us for special events such as Skeleton Dives and Trick-or-Treating. This event is included with Aquarium Admission!


Don’t be surprised if you encounter a Viking in the flesh as you explore Vikings: Beyond the Legend at NHMU. Due to a wildly implausible error in their navigation system, seven Norsemen (and women) ran their vessel aground on the shores of the Great Salt Lake and found their way to NHMU. Meet various members of Viking society, explore their daily life, learn a skill, hear Norse stories, and catch up on town gossip. These intriguing Norse characters will add a more personal look Beyond the Legend, as you explore Viking life in the Museum’s latest special exhibit.  


Gardner Village

The broomsticks have landed and the witches have set up shop. Take a witchy walk through Gardner Village to see our green-faced gals on display Saturday, September 16 to October 31, 2017. Which witch is which? Print a Scavenger Hunt form to hunt for our cackling cuties. See how many you can find and snap a few pics of your scavenger shenanigans to share using hashtags #gardnervillage and #findawitch. We’d love to see you on the Halloween scene!


Get ready for a witchy adventure! Come by Six Hags Witches Adventure to snap a photo with a Gardner Village witch, let all your witchy wiggles loose on a giant pillow, climb thru spider webs and make it out of the Maze of Mayhem. MondaySaturday from 11am to 8pm, weather permitting. Open on Halloween til 4pm. 

Get ready to celebrate the haunts of Halloween with Bewitched, Bothered, and Bedazzled, our brand new Witchapalooza show for 2017! For those with a wacky sense of humor, finesse for fine food, and a zest for great entertainment, this furor of fun will keep you in stitches. Featuring some of Utah’s top musicians and actors, Witchapalooza has become an annual tradition for fall! Dress up with your friends and join us! Tickets start at $21 for show only, and $34. 95 for show and dinner. Book your tickets early, as all shows do sell out. 

The new, permanent home for Castle of Chaos is 8000 S State Street in Salt Lake City. Are you brave enough for Utah’s only completely underground haunted attraction? You have never experienced true fear at a haunted house until you descend into the vast darkness of the Castle of Chaos! Castle is based around a fun, scary but safe great group activity or date. Castle is a very interactive haunted house with lots of actors, so each of your visits is unique. We pride ourselves on being not just scary, but fun! We also offer “4 Levels of Fear” so you can choose what level of scares you get! Castle is wheelchair accessible. New underground location at 8000 South at State Street SLC. 


Crazy Corn Maze
The Crazy Corn Maze in West Jordan is celebrating 15 years, and this year it is bigger than ever. In addition to the corn maze, a pumpkin patch and a bigger and better Haunted Trail will be available.


The Fear Factory is located an abandoned cement factory, rumored to be haunted by the ghosts of workers who died in unfortunate accidents when the factory was in operation. The haunt includes underground tunnels, catwalks, twisty slides that are several stories high, and more.  “Fear Fall” and the “Last Ride Zipline” add more heart-pounding to your visit. 


Nightmare on 13th, Utah’s largest and most technical haunted house, was rated the No. 1 haunted house in Salt Lake City by The Salt Lake Tribune and has been featured on The Travel Channel.
