To say House of Horror in Miami’s attractions this year would freak you out would be an understatement. Face your biggest fears at Gates of Phobia, walk through the 1455 Asylum and see what disturbed patients inhabit it, and see some of the most terrifying oddities at the Freak Emporium. Don’t forget to check out Hellzapoppin’s performances, a circus stunt-show review performing dangerous stunts, such as fire and glass eating. Visit Scare X Studios in the Miami Cinema and watch classic Halloween flicks in a haunted theater. Of course, a carnival isn’t complete without rides and carnival fare – you’ll enjoy unlimited rides on classic carnival rides with your admission and signature carnival treats, such as fried Oreos and candy apples.

On October 6th, fright seekers will be treated to a special event at the House of Horror Haunted Carnival. Radio sensation The Chainsmokers will be performing with Daya and Zara Larsson!

Plan on spending Halloween in Miami? The Hilton Miami Downtown is a zombie-free, peaceful hotel, where you’ll rest comfortably without encountering the things that go bump in the night. When you’re not seeking frights, join us for a delicious dinner in our Brisa Bistro or enjoy some sunshine lounging by our rooftop pool.
