Your worst nightmares come true at the Haunted Plantation in Waipahu. On Friday the 13th, the Hawai‘i Plantation Village transforms into a haunted attraction complete with crazy circus clowns, gross zombies and a hideous pale woman. More than 70 costumed actors are hiding inside the houses in the village, waiting to scare you. The movie-quality special-effects makeup really adds to the extra creepiness factor. What’s even scarier are the stories of real ghosts reported on the site of this former sugar plantation village. Throw in some spooky music and fog—you’ve got a recipe for a good scare. 

Oct. 13–15, 20–22, 27–29, 31, $15 general admission, $20 fast pass, Waipahu Plantation Village, 94-695 Waipahu St., hawaiihauntedplantation.com

You don’t need to take a trip to King Tutankhamun’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings to see mummies—a new haunted house in Kailua is packed with them. Mummy: Curse of the Crypt is Kailua’s newest haunt designed by Hawai‘i Five-O actor Jorge Garcia and produced by Skeleton Key Hawai‘i’s Kevin Keaveney. Your mission is to escape this long-lost Egyptian crypt to survive the mummy’s curse. Be prepared to feel claustrophobic. Tight spaces? You bet. You’ll need to navigate through the dark and winding tunnel with mummies creeping at every turn.  Can you make it out alive?

​7–11 p.m. on Oct. 6–7, 13–14, 19–21, 26–31 and keiki-friendly days from 5–7 p.m. on Oct. 21, 28–29, $15 general admission, $20 fast pass, 171 A-Hamakua Drive, skeletonkeyhawaii.com
