As long as you arrive by the time we close, you will be admitted. So, if we close at 10 and you arrive at 10, you are fine, even if there is still a line.

The General Admission Single Haunt ticket allows entry into every haunt within one location.

For 15 years, Castle of Chaos has been looking for a permanent home in the Salt Lake Valley. Finally, we found one! Our new home at 8000 S State Street in Midvale is a haunter’s dream. Located in a massive, dark, scary basement underneath a bowling alley, four retail stores and storage, it was exactly what we needed. With 300 parking stalls and an easy to find State Street address, we have arrived… and as you descend down into the darkness, you will very quickly see what we mean!

We have consolidated our Orem, Riverdale and Taylorsville haunts into one terrifying location this season. We will look to expand again in the future as we find new, permanent homes along the Wasatch Front.

Just visit our “Join Us” page and fill out the contact form. We will email you back and get you all the information you need. You must be at least 16 years old to volunteer at our Salt Lake location and at least 14 years old to volunteer at our Riverdale and Orem locations.

4 Levels of Fear

4 Levels of Fear allows you to choose the level of intensity you experience when at Castle of Chaos. The 4 Levels of Fear refer to the type and intensity of scares you will receive from the actors as you go through the haunted attraction. The levels (in order of intensity) are: Monster-Be-Gone, General Admission, Hands on Horror, and X-Scream Hands on Horror. To learn more about each of our 4 Levels of Fear visit our pricing page.

No. All 4 Levels of Fear go through the same haunted house.

Your group can have people choose different levels and you will still go through everything together.

Hands on Horror

Hands on Horror™ is an extra add-on experience for those that think they can handle being touched by our actors. We have hired the best scarers in Utah to give you an experience you will never forget! If you don’t think it was worth the upgrade, you get your add-on cost back at the end. This experience is so intense you MUST sign a waiver to participate. You WILL be touched! You will be grabbed (appropriately)! So do not do this upgrade if you do not think you can handle it! Each Hands on Horror™ victim is specially designated by a glowing object on their person so that our creatures know which victims have signed the waiver!

No. Hands on Horror™ is strictly optional. No one has to participate. It is up to each person to decide if they feel like they can handle the intensity and if they wish to pay for the special upgrade.

You must be 18 or older OR be with a parent or guardian (who is over 18) and can sign the waiver for you OR download the waiver in advance, have your parent or guardian sign it, and bring it with you. These rules apply to both levels of Hands on Horror™ (Regular and X-Scream™).

X-Scream Hands On Horror™ is an even more intense level of actor interaction. Some of our actors have been trained to give you a “special” level of Hands On treatment. You will get extra attention from them in many different ways. Castle of Chaos prides itself on being Utah’s most interactive haunt and the X-Scream™ level of Hands On Horror™ ensures that you will be the center of attention for these professional actors. You will NOT (of course) be harmed or handled inappropriately, but anything else is fair game. You never know what will happen in the darkness when you’re all alone! Know that you may be separated from your group, so remove your glow necklace if it becomes too intense for you!
