1. Skeleton Key Hawaii, Kailua, HI

Organized by Jorge Garcia, Skeleton Key Hawaii is a brand new haunted house with the theme of Carnival of Dreams. This haunted house is recommended for those aged 12 and over. This scary attraction is not for the faint of heart, although there are a few specific evening hours that are milder and meant for kids or more timid adults.

2. Haunted Plantation, Waipahu, HI

Nightmare Live is a haunted attraction hosted by Dole Plantations. This startling event has been open for more than 10 years. This is one of Hawaii’s scariest Halloween events and because of this, it is not recommended for children under the age of 13. Instead of being a simple haunted house, this is an entire haunted village full of thrills. The very scary video clips that are on their Facebook page give you a taste of what you’ll experience at the plantation.
