A Valley Halloween favorite, Scarizona Scaregrounds is ready to welcome back locals to its frightening and fun annual attractions.
Officially opening on Friday, Oct. 6, and continuing through Halloween, Scarizona features two haunted attractions and is recommended for those ages 12 and up.
Thrills and chills not your speed? Scarizona is also featuring a Halloween-themed drive through light show, Frights in the Lights, a separate mile long drive through event intended for families with young children and kids of all ages. This event is open on Oct. 20-22 and Oct. 25-31.
All of this takes place at the Scarizona Scaregrounds, which is found at 1901 N. Alma School Road in Mesa. Prices for the haunted house events start at $24.95 per person and prices for the drive through light show start at $24.95 per car.

“Scarizona has been a Valley Halloween mainstay for years, and we’re happy to be back this fall to continue that tradition,” said Allen Thompson, owner and operator of Scarizona Scaregrounds. “For families who prefer less scare and more fun, we are also home to Fright in the Lights, a one-mile Halloween-themed drive through light show. Both events will get you in the Halloween spirit.”
Scarizona takes place at the Thompson Event Center, near Loops 101 and 202 in Mesa.
The venue hosts multiple events per year. After Scarizona, Valley families can look forward to the center’s return of the Arizona Lights In The Night holiday-themed drive-thru light show, slated for late November 2023 through the holiday season.
