This year, The Nightmare On 13th is celebrating 30 Years of Terror with and over 1.5 million people have screamed at Utah’s Legendary Haunted Attraction! Halloween Lives here!

Starting out in 1990 as The Institute of Terror Haunted House, Nightmare on 13th has since grown into one of the industry’s most successful haunted attractions (Haunted Attraction Magazine), one of America’s scariest attractions (The Travel Channel), and one of America’s best haunted houses (USA Today). It is no wonder that the Nightmare on 13th has become a Halloween-time household name, and you can bet that we aim to live up to these honorable recognitions.

Raising the bar on ourselves as each season passes, each year we present a brand new, never-before-seen Nightmare (theme). Nightmare on 13th also features 36,000 square-feet of room for haunting our customers; professionally trained actors; professionally crafted costumes, masks, and makeup; cutting edge animatronics and audio/lighting effects. It’s all in the name of frightful fun. Because of this, there will always be a new reason to visit Nightmare on 13th, a guaranteed evening full of new ways to get scared and scream your lungs out.

The Nightmare On 13th is always changing. From new sets and scenes, to outside building modifications or new photo ops in our Nightmare courtyard. We try to change as much as we can every year to keep things new and fresh for our customers.

What’s new for 2020 at the Nightmare On 13th?

Dark Ride of Terror, this classic dark ride full of gags has been around for 30 years. It is definitely broken, run down, grimey and full of grungy carnival workers. The ride may be broken, but the carnies aren’t closing it down, so get to walking through and keep moving. Be careful it’s probably not safe walking through a ride and one of these carnies could be a killer!

Nightmare Alley, there's a Gothic world behind the gates of the Nightmare On 13th and a strange darkness has spread turning all who survive into their worst nightmares! Beware of the new monsters lurking in the rubble and streets!

I-Scream, where some of our clowns have decided to go into business for themselves and taken over an abandoned ice cream factory and they are now making their own brand with who knows what kind of ingredients, called I-Scream! While the clowns took over the factory and went into business last year, they have made some changes and added new things into the factory that will be sure to give you a bumpy ride you’ll never forget!

Our new castle look, the Nightmare Castle has long been an icon in Salt Lake City, but the time has come and we decided to remodel, to make our building tower over 1300 South with a bigger, darker, and scarier looking presence than ever before!

While the haunted house is what the Nightmare is well known for, there are other ways to add to the fun as well. If you are wanting a more family friendly and non-scary event to do for the evening or during the daytime, before coming to the haunted house, check out Escape On 13th.

We have the most immersive and exciting interactive escape adventures along the Wasatch Front! With 3 different themed games to choose from you’ll find an adventure the whole family will love and leave you wanting to come back for more! We were able to put all of our set building skills from the Nightmare into a non-scary family friendly environment with 360 degree design! For more information, visit www.escapeon13th.com

The Nightmare On 13th has been consistently rated as one of the top haunted attractions in America for a reason. If you haven’t been for a while come see why we are one of the best and have been for 30 years. If you have been recently, come back for more and see all the new changes we made for our 30 Years of Terror!

  • Email Verified It was a blast

    I was there with my friends and honestly it was a blast. Here the setup was so realistic. Definitely one of the best haunt houses in the state. The reputation is rightly conferred. The house was adorned with props and the special effects did great tricks. It stuck to the theme including the actors. It was fun place to stop by.

  • Lively actors

    Most of the haunts have repetitive themes and it becomes very predictable. Here, they have managed to keep things different. The actors were enthusiastic. The makeup and costumes did the job of scaring us away with one look. They were quite determined and would stalk you till the end. Had a great evening and will surely be back.

  • Mind blowing

    This place has been in my to-do list on Halloween for years and will continue to be. The experience was mind blowing. I am the kind who visit haunts whenever possible. Loved the ambience and creativity the team used to put up such a structure. The fun is unlimited at Nightmare on 13th.

  • Email Verified Had a wonderful time

    It is not my first time at Nightmare on 13th but always felt fresh and new. Innovative scares did the job of scaring. Not at all disappointing. We always felt it is going to be repetitive. But they manage to pull new tricks every year. Was there with my family this time. We had a wonderful time. It was crowded. And we had to wait to keep a little distance from the other group. The cast was great. Professional and quite detailed in their portrayal of characters. Never been so awestruck. Loved it.

  • special effects is the only good thing

    Don't get me wrong, the special effects are good, but the scare factor, creepiness, and haunting experience were a complete zero! I visited Nightmare on 13th haunt and grouped with a bunch of strangers to enter the house. We were correct in anticipating where the hidden actors are and what moves is coming next. I'm a Halloween and horror fanatic and this was a disappointment. Step up your game!

  • Email Verified Pathetic

    Pathetic show! More like a laughter show rather than a proper haunted attraction. Actors were neither bothered nor interested in scaring us. Staffs were too rude in answering our queries. Inside artifacts made me laughed more than scare, trust me it’s like a science fiction show. My kids won’t be scared here, this kind of assurance I gave to those people. Abysmal performance by all of them. Not recommended!!

  • Email Verified Getting better and better

    Nightmare on 13th haunted house is very well designed. One thing that made me connect to this haunted house is, you will not be pushed through a line and thus you will not bump into other group which commonly happens with every haunted house. Sound system is just amazing. Every year Nightmare on 13th is getting better and better and I am looking forward to see with what changes they are coming before us next season. I will recommend this to as many people as I can. Must go place with many surprises packed in right baggage.

  • Email Verified Beyond words

    We went here during Halloween and had the most enjoyable moment in this haunted house. The animatronics in the beginning is just amazing or beyond it. Every detail that has been put into this haunt is mind blowing. I was very impressed with the actors, costumes, the themes and even the waiting in queue was good and entertaining. Every bit from the beginning to end was beyond awesome or more. I loved it.
