When I was a kid, our Halloween traditions were quite simple. We'd make a trip to a local haunted house, and then we'd head out for some good old trick-or-treating in our neighborhood. That was pretty much it, but these days, there are a ton of exciting Halloween events and activities to enjoy.

You can explore places like the Land of Tricks and Treats at ValleyFair, catch a  paranormal-themed Cirque show under the big top, or take your family to visit the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular. One of the newer Halloween attractions is the 'Tunnel of Tower' and people across Minnesota will get the chance to drive through it this weekend.

Best Halloween Attraction in Minnesota

If you're looking for a truly terrifying experience, I'd recommend Scream Town. This haunted attraction is the best in the state and is the 8th scariest in the entire country.

The Mall of America also launched a world-class haunted house this year. I haven't been, but the early reviews have been pretty positive. This attraction features an interactive story that takes guests on a horrifying journey.
