Local Haunts for the Halloween season
October is here and you know what that means; Halloween is just around the corner. From pub crawls to haunted attractions, ghost walks to festive parties, it’s easy to get into the Halloween spirit with these nearby haunts.
Into The Dark – Terror Vault (October 10 — November 3)
Don’t miss the premiere of this brand new fully immersive and completely terrifying haunted attraction coming to San Francisco’s Mint building this October. Discover the untold story and dark history of the underground vaults as you travel through this interactive attraction “TERROR VAULT”. Brace yourself for an unforgettable journey as you come face-to-face with the despicable horrors that continue to plague and terrorize the old vaults. The show is produced by Into The Dark, a new Bay Area Production Company that includes the creative and twisted minds of Peaches Christ, David Flower Productions and Non Plus Ultra (the Bay area’s most celebrated venue management firm). “Terror Vault” will star many of the city’s most talented performers and screamers. Be afraid. Be very afraid….
Into the Dark – Dead Zone, Zombie Tag (Friday and Saturday Nights October 12 – November 3)
A horrible Zombie virus has wiped out millions and continues to devastate the Bay Area. Desperate to save millions of innocent lives, the U.S. Department of Zombie Virus Outbreak Containment (ZVOC) has been working at The San Francisco Mint to find a cure for this terrifying disease. Tragically, the research clinic was overwhelmed by a zombie horde and is now an infected hot spot, or Dead Zone. The ZVOC is calling on all local citizens to head into this Dead Zone and recover infected zombie brains and other valuable research data to continue the work for a cure at other facilities. Your mission is to enter the Dead Zone and survive 4 games of increasing complexity: find the research, grab the infected brains, and avoid the zombies lurking in the shadows. Don’t get bit! If you do, you’ll have precious seconds to live unless you find a healing station. Join the team today!

San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour (most nights at 7pm thru October 31)
Celebrate Halloween, or the witching hour of your choice, at San Francisco’s premiere haunted walking tour, the San Francisco Ghost Hunt. Founded in 1998 by local raconteur and paranormal investigator Jim Fassbinder, this decades-old tradition combines San Francisco’s rich haunted history with storytelling, insider gossip, and a magic twist. A fascinating overview of the families and individuals who made San Francisco what it was—and the restless spirits they left behind to carry their legacy into today.

And for the little ones…..
