It’s October and time for terror. Luckily, there are plenty of local opportunities to get seriously scared throughout the month. Whether it’s clowns, ghosts, zombies or the woods after dark that give you nightmares, you’re sure to scream at these haunted locations.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website, many traditional Halloween activities — including indoor haunted houses — can be high-risk for spreading viruses.
Those who may have been exposed to COVID-19 should refrain from participating in in-person Halloween events. Those who choose to attend should be sure to avoid getting within six feet of strangers or those outside their family unit, wear a mask, wash their hands and avoid contact with commonly-touched surfaces.
Here’s our list of haunted adventures available in Brown, Oconto and Door counties.
