This weekend is a triple doozy. It’s Friday the 13th, it’s Valentine’s Day on Saturday AND President’s Day on Monday. It’s something so rare that it has to be a sign of the apocalypse, or something, right? While we’re not so sure about that, we are sure that it means that if you don’t do something with your Valentine, your luck is going to be bad for a very long weekend. This year haunted attractions are using the triple threat as a great way to scare the hell out of you, by creeping out of Halloween mode and entering the love fest. This year there are more haunts than ever, but have no fear (or maybe you should), we have the guide to haunts that want your heart…and lungs…maybe your spleen?
There are so many different haunted attractions open this year that it’s hard to know where to start. More haunted attractions are open for Valentine’s Day of 2015 than any other year to date. People love to be scared with the ones they love. Or maybe it’s just that they love horror. Whatever the case may be, there’s tons of haunts open this year, and they are looking for love…or blood…or whatever.
There are so many haunts this year, that we’re going to break it down by state. We’re trying to get all of the haunts in the U.S. but if we miss some, don’t freak out! It’s a ton of haunted attractions open for a very small amount of time!
Warehouse 31-Birmingham Alabama
For two nights the blood will fly, and the love will splatter as they bring their brand of horror to life for the weekend. Details here.
Arx Mortis-Killen AL
The third annual “My Bloody Valentine” is back, and it’s huge. Special priced tickets and more. More details here!

The 13th Floor-Phoenix, Arizona
The 13th Floor brand is huge, but Phoenix is doing something really special with an amazingly romantic night by candlelight. Of course, you’ll be running and screaming and have things chasing you, but won’t it be romantic? More details here!
Talldega Frights-Bakersfield, California
Two nights, two themes, it’s going to be a nightmare…and that’s a good thing! The Bakersfield haunted attraction is pulling out all the stops with two amazing horror themed runs. More details here!
Zombie Joe’s Ghosts of the Underground-North Hollywood, California
We don’t know much about Zombie Joe’s, but it’s not just a Valentine’s thing. It’s a haunted performance that happens every weekend, and it sounds pretty damn amazing. More details here!
Fear Overload-San Leandro, California
Bloody Valentine Fest spreads over two days with two houses. Tons of gore, blood and love! More details!
Reign of Terror-Thousand Oaks, California
This special event isn’t as much about the scares as it is about coming together for one of their family members. Proceeds for the event will benefit Tom Hood, a haunter, who was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. It’s an amazing thing from the haunt community. More details.
The 13th Floor – Denver
Ten years ago, Bear Butcher went on a rampage. His copycats have been mimicking his style for years. This Valentine’s Day, you will come face to face with Bear in this candlelit maze. More Details

Vampires, homicidal maniacs and tons of love as Hellscream brings two different themes for the weekend. Friday will see Friday the 13th fully realized, while Saturday will have your heart bleeding. More Details!
Only Scream in Town-North Haven, CT
Free Handwarmers! That kills me! But you can get a free handwarmer for ordering your tickets early, and you better do it quick, because tickets are extremely limited. Cupid is taking his revenge, and you really don’t want to miss it. More info
Legends – A Haunting at Old Town – Kissimmee
Legends isn’t doing anything major for Valentine’s Day. When we tried to ask Mr. Ashdown about it, he replied “if I want to win someone’s heart, I just take it while they’re sleeping”. Ah, Ashdown, can’t really argue with that logic. It’s fear all year, as always at Legends, and you really don’t want to miss it.More Details
The Shallow Grave – Winter Haven
One of our favorite haunts of 2014, The Shallow Grave is having a “Night to Dismember”. Law Enforcement and military gets in free with paying combo ticket. The haunt will also go “lights out” on Saturday. Just you and a glowstick. Trust me, that’s not a good thing. More Details
Basement of the Dead – Aurora
They’ll take your heart, and eat your soul, as a special Valentine’s Day edition of Basement of the Dead comes up for the weekend. More Details
The 13th Floor – Chicago
Yes, Chicago is in trouble. Friday and Saturday, the 13th Floor is unleashing an army of misfits to help the one they admire the most. More Details

Massacre Haunted House – Montgomery
Massacre wants to steal your heart…and do things with it. Valentine’s Day Weekend the haunt will be open for singles, couples, and those just like to scream. More Details

Exit 13 Haunted House – Mt. Morris
The Massacre hits Friday, and if there’s anything left, you’ll get to “Blackout”. We honestly love blackout haunts. You never know what you’re going to find in the dark. Presale tickets will help you save, but they are almost gone! More Details
Hush Haunted Attraction – Westland
