Halloween looks a little different during a global pandemic, but don’t let COVID-19 be the scariest part of your 2020. Here is a comprehensive list of the best, socially distanced Haunted Houses in the area.
Located just outside of Sioux Falls off I-29, Terror 29 combines abandoned warehouses with circus freaks in this haunted house. Featuring acrobats, zombies, clowns and haunted lion tamers, Terror 29 is taking many precautions to ensure their guests are safe.
Guests are required to wear a mask along with the cast and crew at Terror 29 and tickets are sold through hour-long time slots so guests are able to safely walk through the twisted warehouse. Terror 29 is open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Halloween weekend. Hours vary on day and tickets are $15.
If you’re looking to give back to charity while getting scared out of your mind, check out Twisted Nightmare. Conveniently located in downtown Sioux Falls, Twisted Nightmare is a fundraiser for the South Dakota Fraternal Order of Police and Feeding South Dakota.
