Knott’s Scary Farm Through Nov. 2
Evenings around Halloween, Knott’s Berry Farm transforms into Knott’s Scary Farm, with more than 1,000 monsters roaming 10 mazes, four “scare zones” and two live shows. It’s one of the largest (and oldest) Halloween events held at a theme park and includes the classic Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, for a twice-nightly big top show. www.knotts.com/scaryfarm

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride Through Nov. 2
Far from those kid-friendly rides through a pumpkin patch, this hayride unleashes all sorts of demons, and bogeys on Griffith Park. It’s an actual hayride—a long one—paired with a “scary-go-round” for wee ones (and ‘fraidy cats), a number of scare zones and a pitch black maze filled with “demons and maniacs,” and probably lots of frisky teenagers. This hayride is not suitable for children under 12. www.losangeleshauntedhayride.com

Dark Harbor Through Nov. 2
The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor, Southern California’s most terrifyingly authentic haunt, will once again rise from the deep, dripping with history of the infamously haunted ship. Named one of the top 10 most haunted places on Earth by Time Magazine, The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor offers the most authentically frightening experience available, bringing the true haunted tales of The Queen Mary to life. www.queenmary.com
