HalloweenTown In Albuquerque

Slaughter House

Every Day

Visit the scariest haunted house in Albuquerque, Slaughter House, where Leatherhead, Mother Mary, and their only surviving child roam, looking for more victims to torture.  Their other children were killed for being imperfect, but their spirits live on, and after short lifetimes of neglect, they’re hungry enough to eat a person.  If you manage to escape the young spirits, you still have to contend with the mutant wolf roaming the house – will you be able to make it out?

Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk

Every Day

Take this 1.3 mile walking tour through downtown Albuquerque to learn about paranormal science, ghost hunting, and see some of the city’s haunted buildings.  Some of the places you’ll visit include the KiMo Theatre, Bernalillo County Courthouse, the Wool Warehouse, and the Freed Building.

Spirits of New Mexico’s Past

October 26th, 2019
