4 of the Boise Area’s Best Fall and Haunted Attractions Announce Opening Dates
- Share on Facebook
- Share on Twitter
Have you walked through Albertsons lately? The calendar says mid-August, but the fairly large selection of pumpkin spice products available now suggests that spooky season is creeping up on us!
The "Halloween Creep" is real. Spirit Halloween already has a countdown to Halloween on its website and has shared its plans to open five pop-up locations in the Treasure Valley this year.
In fact, two of those locations have already opened for the season! With Home Goods taking over the location they typically used in Nampa and Rack Attack moving into the location they used to use near Boise Towne Square Mall, they've had to shuffle locations a bit this year. Here's where you can find them in 2022:
Every Spirit Halloween Stores Coming to the Boise Area in 2022
Pumpkin Spice and Halloween stores are early signs that fall is creeping into the Treasure Valley, but it doesn't truly feel like "spooky season" until you can get lost in a corn maze or get chased by a creepy, chainsaw-wielding clown. The opening dates for your favorite scary and not-so-scary fall attractions are right around the corner! So bust out that ugly Halloween sweater (don't judge, we actually own one) and get ready to fall into...well, fall! Scroll down to see the dates for this year.
We're starting to build our early list of trunk-or-treat events too, so if your school, church or organization has one on the calendar click HERE to send us the whens and wheres. When we publish our guide for the year, we'll be happy to include you!

My wife and I took our kid and her friend. The haunted house part was pretty cool. Awesome set pieces, super gruesome, and loud as hell. The other attraction (the field, etc.) was OK (see below). The main problem for both attractions (the larger attraction, more so) is that there are WAY too many people filing through for the actors to properly scare every guest/group that comes through. I get that it's an economics thing: gotta make as much $ as possible per season, but, as I recall, only one dude got me good the entire evening. That said, he got so close that I stepped on his foot, which immediately turned his menace into a comedy bit. (Jumps out!) "Ahhhhh! (foot stepped on) Whooooa! Plus there's a live pig (!) in a stall which was a total buzz kill cause all you can think is, "Aw, poor pig. It's gotta lie here listening to all this noise/people prodding it for hours at a time." They don't need a live pig. Make it a pig-man, instead. He can eat from a slop trough and squeal/bellow at the guests in a half-man/half-pig language. Would be totally kickass!! Pros: great atmosphere and set pieces; actors are very committed to their characters and very safe (I got right away that they wouldn't touch me) Cons: too crowded; the porta potties smelled like Jason Vorhees' ass moments before (spoiler alert) he crawled in the lake (therefore rinsing his ass) in Pt. 4 to kill the woman on the raft; the live pig created concern for an animal that doesn't comprehend that it's part of a piece of entertainment (You can't just say to the pig, "Chill out, pig. We're just having fun!") Will definitely go again!
I know my Idaho natives are gonna hate this- and I don't mean to ruin "traditions" but Haunted World could be so much better if they changed things up a bit year after year. It's exactly the same every single time. I just can't justify the cost to attend if they aren't gonna change it up or add anything new. I know that it would be ineffective cost wise to redo the main maze, but there's surely some way to revamp it or add additional scares/attractions that could make it better. I just don't get how everyone goes back each year. It's like watching the same scary movie over and over and forgetting where the jump moments are. I can't get behind that.
This place was fun the first time- but they don't do anything different to make one year any better than the last. It needs something new or just little but different to justify the price of this annual Treasure Valley attraction. It's not scary if nothing changes.
The only thing scary about Haunted World is their prices. $40 did not justify what I experienced, especially compared to previous years where I paid half the price to get in. The actors were lackluster (probably because they get paid $10 an hour), and we were packed in there like sardines and barely got to see the set pieces. This place has definitely gone downhill.
I came here back in 2015 and remember it being the best haunted attraction that I had been to. There were actors everywhere in the maze and it seemed to never stop. I just went again for the second time in 2022 and I was very disappointed. I had been so excited to go and brought my little brother to his first haunted attraction and was super excited for him to be scared. He wasn't. I don't know if they were just short staffed or what but I hope they go back to how I remember it. Maze is super long tho which is nice compared to other places that only take 5-10 minutes to get through. However without actors everywhere there were lulls where my brothers and I were just laughing and cracking jokes doesn't keep the excitement up.
Are used to be an exciting thing for teenagers and families to go do throughout the years their attractions have lacked their actors have lacked and they pump their prices up to a stupid amount of money!! There are much better places to go see for a lot cheaper!
Overrated people jammed in nothing scary no one in my group or the 10 people in front or behind were the least bit scared. Including the one girl in our group of 8 who is afraid of horror movies. Not one squeak. We were packed like sardines and race walked through both "attractions". The people behind me kept jamming into me and ripping off my shoes because we are so bunched together and you could tell they just wanted to jam as many people through as possible as quickly as possible. So being so busy going through each thing you never really got the chance to be scared. It's just Hey here we are Is here on a Forced Marchl through a corn maze Let's keep on moving. There was definitely no time to dawdle or slow down my fitbit Showed I walked it in less than 20 minutes. The only Really frightening portion for my group of 8 was when the 2 months pregnant lady was in one area and wanted to vomit because somebody else wanted to vomit. So for $35 for a fast pass that you can order on your phone The Lines weren't bad but seemed like everybody was just trying too hard Maybe because we've all seen covid there's nothing really scary after that Was bummed I blew 35 bucks
Here is what's left of your ticker stub at end of evening
For the amount of people going thru, they NEED to space it out. No matter how you paced it, you were always hitting a line of 15 or more and would come to a complete stop. This took the scare out of everything.
The website is pretty lacking and doesn't give too many pictures or details. While the ticket booth opens at 7:00 pm, the lines don't open until 9:00 pm. They let everyone who paid extra for the fast pass go first. The maze is really well done. You can't really see how big it is from the street. You can see five shacks from the street and think "what are people paying for?" But the detail and length is impressive. It took us 30 minutes to walk through the maze. You are walking through dirt so dress accordingly. You also go down a small slide at one point that is muddy at the end. It takes no more than 5 minutes to go through the Skullvania house which has about three live monsters and the rest is animatronic or sensored . There weren't too many monsters in the maze. My only complaint is that they screamed in your ear. Like... that's not scary, it's annoying. Especially for my younger kids. We went early in the season and there wasn't a line for tickets or the snack shack.
I think this place deserves 5 stars or 4 1/2. Why? Because I thought it was a lot more fun than I ever expected. I'm a TAD older than most that go there...my age won't be revealed here...but it's like...33 or 34 or 37 or something like that lol. So, you'd think people my age wouldn't like this stuff. If you're older and can't get out to have fun at a place like this...SERIOUSLY! WHY DID YOU LET THE KID IN YOU...DIE?!? I'm getting older...and like Madonna, I'm not loving the aging process. I just wish I had her $$$ to get a little bo for this mo...but not as bad as her. She's had too many procedures and now she looks scary....almost like a zombie you'd see at Haunted World! Hahaha! I grew up with her, I love her music...but again, she's not handling aging very well and neither am I LOL! That still will never keep me from acting a fool and going to places meant for like high schoolers and 20 somethings lol. I'll never let the kid in me die. No fun when people act all old and shit WOW! off subject, huh??? I tend to do that. If you read my reviews, you know this. My above comments kinda work tho...because going to a spot like Haunted World allows you to be that kid you used to be or the kid you refuse to let go. This place was great because, growing up in upstate NY, when I was in high school, we always went to Haunted Hayrides in the woods. They were fantastic! I so wish we had them here in Boise. Anyway, you start out in like a haunted psycho hospital. Very smokey, very dark, screaming, eerie music, people jumping at you, etc. It's great. Only one issue is...TONS of people. You move through like cattle. You finish that and then go through the haunted corn maze. This is what reminded me of the haunted hayrides back in the day. The corn maze, you walk the entire thing. It's long af, but you get what you pay for. $25 bucks for the entire experience and yeah, I totally think it's worth it. Is it scarier than the haunted hayrides I went on...nah, but they do go all out. It really is a fun time. Just be prepared for a LOT of walking and walking in a lot of dark spots. One part, you come to this super dark room and this slide. The slide is super wide and you go under these flaps and it is PITCH BLACK...you slide down this long slide in complete darkness. I thought....um, this wouldn't be good for older folks. They'd HATE this hahahaha! It's a lot of fun and yeah, it's always to let your inner kid out again if you're one who chooses to hide it now that you're an older kid lol. Me, I act like a moron all the time hahahaha! I know I'm late posting this...seeing as Thanksgiving is in a week but hopefully this is useful for next year. I'm glad I finally went. I've always wanted to go, just never had anyone who wanted to go with. So I went with a 20 year old and a 37 year old HA! They took me for my Birthday! Ok! That's all I got for this one! Go and enjoy it! It's a lot of fun. Even the "scariest" characters end up being funny and crack jokes with you/people. They even take selfies with you HA! Thanks so much for reading! Cheers!
