A funny thing happens when you do a web search for “haunted houses in Baltimore.” You get pages of results for a bunch of haunted house attractions, none of which are actually in Baltimore and many of which are actually quite far away at an hour’s drive or more.
Any city dwellers who want a scare without a trip to the suburbs are typically forced to take a more DIY approach by visiting sites that are traditionally considered spooky or haunted like Poe’s Grave, Reservoir Hill or our favorite, the Greenmount Cemetery. And of course there’s always Ye Olde Fell’s Point Ghostwalk and Haunted Pub Crawl. Spooky Scary!
But if you’re looking for a haunted-house proper you’re in luck because here’s this one at MICA tonight, tomorrow and Saturday.
The BBOX theater in the Gateway building might not be the creepy-crawliest from the outside, but the inside, with 15 rooms, has the potential to transform well with the help of a little fog and strobes and darkness. This year’s attraction has a Brothers Grimm theme and will feature handmade merch ranging from $2-$15. More info can be found on the Facebook event page.
And speaking of haunted houses, the Ottobar schedule indicates that they’ll be producing their haunted house again this year for two nights on Halloween and again on Friday November 1st. The Chop went to this last year and we seem to remember it was like $6 admission but included a drink ticket so it was a great value. There were also drink specials going all night and overall it was a very fun event that we’d recommend highly.
