Memphis Guide To Halloween: Haunted Houses, Pumpkin Patches, And Events

It's time for Halloween in Memphis! Pumpkin patches, haunted houses, corn mazes, and ghost tours are going strong. Here's your guide to all the spooky season fun happening in Memphis and the Mid-South in 2022.

Add your events here.


Historical Haunts Memphis (ongoing)

Historical Haunts hosts ongoing spooky tours, haunted pub crawls, and ghost hunts. This goes on year-round, not just during this spooky season. But you'll want to make your reservations for October tours and crawls quickly as it tends to get crowded this time of year, and capacity is limited.

Backbeat Tours (ongoing)

Backbeat hosts walking two-hour Ghost Tours of the South Main Arts District downtown on a regular basis, just be sure to reserve your spot ahead of time as capacity is limited.

Zoo Boo, Memphis Zoo, select nights through October 31, 6 p.m. - 9:30 p.m., $18 non-members/$13 members, all ages/kid-friendly

Zoo Boo looks awesome this year—with new Stranger Things inspired decorations and other updates, I’m impressed! Enjoy all that plus singing pumpkins, a magician, fortune tellers, a hay maze, light-up picturesque pumpkin tunnel, a free carousel, and a new interactive mermaid experience. Busy nights WILL sell out so be sure to buy your tickets online ahead of time. On the other hand, there are no refunds or rain checks so cross your fingers and plan accordingly. Take the kids in their costumes and bring the treat bags!

Wicked Ways Haunted House (select days through Oct. 31)

I'm hearing this haunted house at 160 Cumberland near Wiseacre's Broad Avenue taproom is the most terrifying in town. This one is a super-scary absolutely not for children haunted house. Lines can get a few hours long as we get closer to Halloween, so go early in the season and early in the evening, too. Check out the website for ticket info and hours, which vary depending on the day.

Jones Orchard Shadowlands of Fear (Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays in October)

Imagining yourself in cute flannel, picking apples and such? Forget it. At Jones Orchard’s scary attractions, creatures and creeps come out to haunt the woods ("Festival of Fear") and the orchard itself ("Hysteria"). Not kid-friendly! Haunted attractions are $18 each—or get scared at both for $30. Check out the rules, disclaimers, and warnings before you go.

HauntedWeb of Horrors (Fridays, saturdays, sundays in october)

Another one of the spookiest haunted “houses” in town, HauntedWebs of Horrors has five different attractions plus new horror escape rooms—yikes! There’s a lot going on over there with varied dates, times, and tickets, so check out the website for all the info.
