10 Best Haunted Houses Near Omaha (2021)

10 Best Haunted Houses Near Omaha (2021)

My kids are just starting to get to the age where they’re going to start asking to go to haunted houses. While our speed has been Cobweb Castle as far as scares go, there are a lot bigger, scarier haunted houses around Omaha. Here’s a list of the haunted houses in Omaha, and nearby. 

Update: This post was published in 2020 and is being updated with 2021 days and times.

Before you go to any of these haunted houses, double check their open days and times. Most are open only on select days.

Haunted road trips

If you want to get out of town for your scares, I recommend heading to Kansas City, Mo., for Halloween Haunt at Worlds of Fun.

Worlds of Fun during the Halloween season in the daytime.

Unfortunately, Halloween Haunt will not be held in 2020.

The night is pretty scary, so if you have young kids, I recommend going for Halloween fun during the daytime.

I just finished researching a post about the urban legends, rumored hauntings, and other freaky places in Omaha and nearby. At the end of the post, you’ll find links to several ghost tours and cemetery tours, so you don’t have to DIY your own haunting expedition.
