About Us

This year, The Nightmare On 13th is celebrating 32 Years of Terror with and over 1.5 million people have screamed at Utah’s Legendary Haunted Attraction! Halloween Lives here!

Starting out in 1990 as The Institute of Terror Haunted House, Nightmare on 13th has since grown into one of the industry’s most successful haunted attractions (Haunted Attraction Magazine), one of America’s scariest attractions (The Travel Channel), and one of America’s best haunted houses (USA Today). It is no wonder that the Nightmare on 13th has become a Halloween-time household name, and you can bet that we aim to live up to these honorable recognitions.

Raising the bar on ourselves as each season passes, each year we present a brand new, never-before-seen Nightmare (theme). Nightmare on 13th also features 36,000 square-feet of room for haunting our customers; professionally trained actors; professionally crafted costumes, masks, and makeup; cutting edge animatronics and audio/lighting effects. It’s all in the name of frightful fun. Because of this, there will always be a new reason to visit Nightmare on 13th, a guaranteed evening full of new ways to get scared and scream your lungs out.

The Nightmare On 13th is always changing. From new sets and scenes, to outside building modifications or new photo ops in our Nightmare courtyard. We try to change as much as we can every year to keep things new and fresh for our customers.

What’s new for 2022 at the Nightmare On 13th?

The Institute of Terror is a brand new VIP attraction and it is included with every VIP ticket. Nightmare on 13th also strives to make the experience family-friendly. The All-New Giant Reaper haunts the Nightmare Courtyard which provides an introduction to what nightmares lurk inside the haunted house. The huge turrets, bell tower, and entering in through the Drawbridge adds to the thrill of walking into a haunted castle.

While the haunted house is what the Nightmare is well known for, there are other ways to add to the fun as well. If you are wanting a more family friendly and non-scary event to do for the evening or during the daytime, before coming to the haunted house, check out Escape On 13th.

We have the most immersive and exciting interactive escape adventures along the Wasatch Front! With 3 different themed games to choose from you’ll find an adventure the whole family will love and leave you wanting to come back for more! We were able to put all of our set building skills from the Nightmare into a non-scary family friendly environment with 360 degree design! For more information, visit
