|Haunts at Worlds of Fun|
KANSAS CITY, Missouri USA is the self-proclaimed “Haunted House Capital of the World.” The Kansas City Convention & Visitors Association publishes a list of KC haunted attractions designed to send shivers down the spines of visitors. Here are details on several of them.
THE BEAST | through Halloween
Founded in 1991, The Beast allows for ghosts, spooks and other creatures to lunge out at visitors at any time. This sizable attraction takes roughly 40 minutes to get through.
EDGE OF HELL | through Halloween
Edge of Hell—KC’s oldest haunted house—features bats, alligators and one very large anaconda. “Trudge past vampires through the quarter-mile route before sliding down a five-story spiral slide into the arms of the Devil himself.”
HALLOWEEN HAUNT AT WORLDS OF FUN | through Oct. 30
Head to KC’s thrilling theme park if you dare to experience nine horrifying haunts this Halloween season. “Master McCarthy’s Doll Factory” takes visitors to a toy factory gone horribly wrong while “Lore of the Vampire” will have them running from blood-thirsty Dracula and his friends.
NIGHTSTALKERS SCREAM PARK | through Halloween
Visitors take the “Hellevator” down to the creepy Cavern of Terror, America’s largest haunted cave and hop into a used coffin at the Burial Simulator for that buried-alive feeling.
GHOSTS & GANGSTERS TOUR | through Dec. 17
Jump on the ghoul bus and tour historic Kansas City landmarks with legendary paranormal activity and infamous mafia mayhem. Stop by the Hotel Savoy, rumored to be haunted by a woman who passed away in room 505 and never moved out. Or search for the ghost of Father Henry David Jardine who supposedly roams the halls of St. Mary’s Church.
Kid-friendly Halloween events offer not-so-scary family fun:
HOWL-O-FEST AT WORLDS OF FUN | through Oct. 30
Let your little goblins run free through seven attractions until 6 p.m. Kids may hunt for prizes at Snoopy’s Big Treasure Hunt and show off their Halloween costumes at Captain Kitty’s Costume Contest.
BOO AT THE ZOO | Weekend of Oct. 29
Safari meets spooky at the Kansas City Zoo’s annual Boo at the Zoo event. The kiddies will enjoy everything from trick-or-treating amid wild animals to spooky animal shows.
