The San Francisco Bay Area contains many family-friendly haunted house events, including Pirates of Emerson, Great America’s Halloween Haunt, and Dead Time Dreams. You can expect these events to have between three and six haunted houses each and for the events to be lighter and more theatrical, but less scary, than the other events in the Bay Area that are geared more for the adult audience.
Family friendly attractions also generally have ample line entertainment, food and beverage, and are usually outdoor events. The outdoor factor allows them to garnish more attendance on big nights, but also makes for lighter haunted houses and a lighter atmosphere. But being outdoors can also be spooky as well!
If you are looking for a family friendly Halloween event in the San Francisco Bay Area, we strongly suggest that you visit our friends at Pirates of Emerson at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.
