Celebrate Halloween in Utrecht

It’s already October, and you know what that means… Halloween! Whether you love spooky stuff or can’t even watch a scary commercial without it giving you nightmares (thanks Walibi Fright Nights…), there’s sure to be a Halloween event for you!

Parties

Halloween at Tivoli Vredenburg

For the brave hearted among us, Tivoli is throwing a super creepy, movie-style Halloween party with all the trimmings: red cups, beer pong, scary décor, freak shows, ‘scare zones’, and more. Put on your best Halloween costume and party the night away!

Terrifying

Halloween Nightmares haunted house at The Wall

Yes, this is THAT haunted house… the one that’s been in the news for causing people to have panic attacks. Look, we obviously don’t recommend going if you don’t love all things scary. But if you crave the feeling of adrenaline coursing through your veins and you don’t bat an eye at the most terrifying movies, then maybe this one’s for you?

On until the end of November | Website
