Here is a full list of 2013 Halloween haunted houses, mazes and events in the Los Angeles – Southern California area, including those in Orange and Riverside/San Bernardino.
It seems each year these Halloween events keep getting bigger and better. From the big mega million productions at Knott’s Scary Farm Haunt to the local resident putting up their own maze. It’s a fun time in October.
I’ve listed the events into six groups: Amusement Parks, San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Valley, Orange County and finally the Riverside/San Bernardino Counties. The list of Amusement Parks includes the larger regional venues. Then I list the local haunted houses and mazes.
