Quad Cities Haunted Houses and Pumpkin Patches
We have a lot of quality family time watching movies, TV series and playing board games, but we also expose the girls to a variety of experiences. Some examples of recent years’ activities are auctions, kid-friendly collector events, trips to board game conventions, travels to Beaches Resorts or a family cruise through the Caribbean. But they’re now at an age where they’re going to be doing a lot more without us. My childhood was filled with Halloween activities like school parties, parades and trick-or-treating. As I got older my friends and I focused on seeing scary movies and visiting haunted houses. I have some amazing memories of hitting multiple Jaycee Haunted Houses when I was in high school. Some that were filled with laughs and others with screams. Open only on Friday and Saturday evenings leading up to Halloween, we would make a point of driving to a couple each weekend, some of which were in small towns around the Quad Cities. One vivid memory involved a pitch black maze where we cou.dn’t find the exit. There were so many people piling up in that room that (for safety reasons) the moderators needed to send a guide in to get some of us out. Another had a revolving door that only permitted two people through at a time and it switched directions every two people. What this did was break up large groups into twos and send them on two different routes through the house! My girls are starting to express interest in these types of activities so we’ve been researching to find haunted houses in the Quad Cities.
Times have changed and it doesn’t appear that the Jaycees still do anything of the sort, but there are many other Quad Cities haunted houses to visit. While some of these recur each year, others come and go. Check out these this year!

This looks awesome! What a great list of Halloween festivities to go to! We have a lot of fun at pumpkin patches as a family every year. I will be sharing this post with friends I know near these locations.
But haunted houses scare me so much! I’ll be waiting at one of the pumpkin patches. 🙂
I love going to the pumpkin patches and corn mazes this time of year. Haven’t gone to a Haunted House in years but my grandkids love them.
They sound so fun! We are big fans of pumpkin patches but aren’t quite ready for haunted houses yet
I am not a big fan of spooky activities and haunted houses are not my jam. A trip to the pumpkin patch with my grandchildren would be best for me. My sons can visit all the haunted houses they want, as long as they do not bring home those lost spirits.
I also enjoyed attending Halloween parties and events as a kid and teenager. Haunted houses are so much fun; that’s great to know there are so many in the Quad Cities.
I love pumpkin patches, although I think I have only been to one in my entire life. I also like Haunted houses, but we don’t have any great ones around here. Glad that you shared some awesome spots in the Quad Cities to visit this Halloween season.
Sounds like your kids have an amazing childhood full of adventures. Thanks for sharing the list of haunted houses and pumpkin patches. I enjoy haunted houses!
There’s a book I read a while ago called something like Haunted Heartland, or Haunted in the Heartland, or something like that and it references a ton of haunted houses….it might help with your research….lots of spooky stories too.
I love the picture in the pumpkin patch
