Metro Detroit Michigan Haunted Houses and Hayrides

Posted by Glen LaGrou October 1, 2013 Fall Fun, Featured, Local Activities

I have compiled a large list of Haunted Hayrides, Haunted Houses and Haunted Attractions in Oakland County, Macomb County and throughout Metro Detroit, Michigan for 2013 Halloween fun.

Please read the recommendations of some of the attractions and review their websites. Some of the content on these hayrides are very family friendly and some feature material that is far too scary for younger kids. Please use your best judgment when selecting. Friday and Saturday night rides and attractions often have older/rowdier crowds so you may want to consider going on Sundays or going before 9p if you’re going to take a child.

Some popular haunted attractions in Metro Detroit, Michigan have ceased operation for this year. We’ve lost some haunted houses and hayrides that have been around for a season or two and we’ve also lost some haunted houses and hayrides that have been in business for generations. I’ve spoken to some of the operators of these attractions and many insist they will be back for next year but are taking a year off to re-organize. Others are out of the haunted house and haunted hayride business for good.

The following haunted houses, hayrides and attractions have closed and won’t be in operation for the 2013 Halloween season:

  • The Amazing Corn Maze Haunted Attractions and Corn Maze in Leonard won’t be featuring haunted attractions this year.
  • Wojo’s Greenhouse in Ortonville had a Haunted Forest attraction for a couple of years to benefit St. Anne’s church but will not have a Haunted Forest for 2013.
  • Lavin’s Flower Land Nursery operated Haunted Nursery for a few years to benefit local charities but will not be operating Haunted Nursery in Southfield for 2013.
  • The 22 year tradition of Haunted Hayrides at Miller’s Big Red Orchard & Cider Mill appears to be over. I spoke to a representative today that confirmed Haunted Hayrides at Miller’s Big Red Orchard will NOT take place for 2013.
  • The Detroit Opera House hosted a 1-night only Haunted Opera House event that has yet to be scheduled for 2013 and was perhaps a 1-time only event.
  • Haunted Hollows in Armada is not operating the popular haunted attraction for 2013 but may come back for 2014.
  • Nightmares for Hope Haunted House in Wolverine Lake operated a small haunted house attraction last season to benefit Autism research but an arson event has closed the attraction for good.
  • Dementia Haunted Attraction at Hampton Golf Course in Rochester Hills, MI has closed its doors to concentrate on golf.
  • The Haunted Castle in Beverly Hills, MI ceased operations in 2011 and doesn’t look like they will open for 2013. I’m told they may re-open for 2014.
  • The Haunted Winery in Farmington Hills, MI closed in 2010.
