6 Ways To Get Your Spook On This Halloween

 In Blog, San Diego Broadway Shows

We all love a little bit of healthy terror in our lives around Halloween — that rush of adrenaline as the madman in the woods charges us with a chainsaw — because we know we can go back home and be safe in bed no worse for the wear.

If you’re looking for a monstrously good time this Halloween in San Diego, then this blog will help you have a frightfully good time. Here at San Diego Musical Theatre, we’re even offering a Broadway show to get you in the spooky spirit: Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein.” Get your Broadway tickets today and support local!

Whaley House Halloween Ghost Tours

Get your fill of haunted folklore in this historic San Diego building. The Whaley House Museum will transport you to an older, scarier time of San Diego when you brave tours through the infamously haunted 19th-century house in the month of October — they even show horror films weekly!

HauntFest on Main

This San Diego attraction might be a bit easier on the kids, but it’s guaranteed to get the whole family in a spooky mood. The streets of El Cajon will feature two stages for live music, a car show, and carnival rides. Local businesses get involved, so it’s a fun way to show your pride — maybe some ghostly San Diego residents will even visit the HauntFest on Main.

Old Town Día De Los Muertos

This community-wide Day of the Dead celebration has entertainment for the whole family. It’s a few days after Halloween, but this will help you to keep the season’s spirit for just a bit longer! There will also be a candlelight procession to El Campo Cemetery.

“Young Frankenstein”

Duck into a historic building — the Horton Grand Theatre — without worrying about ghosts. San Diego Musical Theatre is pleased to offer this wickedly inspired reimagining of the legend of Frankenstein from the mind of none other than Mel Brooks. “Young Frankenstein” is sure to be a laughably scary this October at SDMT. It’s aliiiiiive!

The Haunted Trail

You might just get that adrenaline from the man with a chainsaw after all. The Haunted Trail is a mile-long outdoor trail that is guaranteed to get your heart rate up and your nerves a bit on edge. It’s in your beloved Balboa Park — but it will certainly look different in the dark.

The Haunted Hotel

Located in Gaslamp Quarter (the same place where you can see Broadway musicals), the Haunted Hotel was recently ranked the No. 1 Scariest Haunt in America. Do you have what it takes to survive the longest-running haunt in San Diego? There are zombies, clowns, and worse — we’ll see if you live to tell your haunted tale.

See the monster of a hit “Young Frankenstein” this Halloween season at San Diego Musical Theatre. This musical production will surely get you in the Halloween spirit, while also being fun for the whole family. Get Broadway tickets today.
