Asylum and The 13th Floor are put on by the same creator, so expect a similar experiences -- basically they’re both scary as hell and more suited for the braver souls. Plus this year, they’ve added an optional Sensory Overload experience where you’ll face your fears in complete darkness. This Mile High favorite for screams boasts 10,000 square-feet of unadulterated terror. Once you head in, expect a whole lot of demons, killer clowns, and blood and gore until you get out. Like Asylum, this one’s open most days during the week (and more expensive on weekends).

Denver’s first haunted house, Frightmare, has been a destination for thrill-seekers since 1983 when it was founded by Brad Holder. Holder himself has since passed away, though he’s rumored to be buried somewhere in the house. But that’s just one reason to keep your eyes peeled for otherworldly premonitions here. The compound is rumored to sit on swampland that was filled with both human and animal remains... buried under unholy grounds where the barn now stands. Head here to explore the barn for yourself, but be warned: these terrors are not fit for the very young or jumpy.
