Halloween in America’s Finest City

| Activities

Fall is officially here, and with the shorter days and (slightly) cooler weather comes the aroma of pumpkin spice candles, baked goods and just a bit of fear. That’s right, fear! The month of October is sure to excite adrenaline fiends and tricksters alike, and San Diego in specific boasts a plentiful array of horror movies, haunted houses and loud shrieks. The days leading up to Halloween are full of terrifyingly fun events in America’s Finest City. From September 28th to October 31st, the Del Mar Scream Zone is a hot spot to take in some of the biggest scares of the season. The best part? It’s only a ten minute drive from your relaxing haven at Pacific Beach’s Ocean Park Inn. We promise it will be scary for most, so enjoy a night of thrills at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and return to a restful sleep at OPI, where the sound of crashing waves will drown out the lingering memories of chain saws and screams.

This year the Del Mar Scream Zone has moved to one of the creepiest parts of the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the Green Lot on the far west side of the grounds, close to the train tracks.  Start your night off with a haunted hayride for an unsettling trip through the haunted barns on the backside of the Del Mar Race Track. You’ll want to bring a buddy that you’re comfortable enough to grab and hold-onto at an instant’s notice because there will be zombies and ghouls around every corner. It’s sure to be a good time for a family outing, although be cautious that it may not be appropriate for small children. Continue your night at Del Mar Scream Zone’s newest attraction: Chamber of Chills! The Chamber is a twisting, turning labyrinth of scares. End your night at the House of Horror. This year features all new blood-curling scenes with dozens of rooms filled to the brim with fiends, apparitions and scares, all guaranteed to make you run for cover.
