This frightening spectacle draws its dark energy from the urban legends of the 13th floor. While most buildings skip or hide the 13th floors due to superstition, the 13th Floor Haunted House preys upon these fears. Located a few blocks North of I-70 and West of Colorado Blvd., brave souls can enter one of the nation’s top haunted houses through November 9th, with tickets starting at just $20 a piece.
