I took my kids to the Day Haunt at Nightmare on 13th in Utah this last weekend (thank you Nightmare on 13th for hosting us), and I have to tell you it was one of the most fun Halloween activities I have done with them. The Day Haunt allows anyone (of all ages) to walk through the haunted house without any jump scares, animatronics, etc to make it scary. It is just the props and decorations that you can walk through to see what the experience would be like.
The experience is self-guided, but there are a lot of people going through it, so you do want to keep at a pace that matches. Overall it took us about 30 minutes to walk through. The kids got an awesome Trick-or-Treat bag at the end and got to get a treat from the “creature” (guy in a costume) out in the courtyard. We also spent about 15 minutes walking around the outside and soaking it all up. I have only been there at night, so it was just as much fun for me to go back during the day as it was going at night.

Overall this Halloween activity in Utah is in my top 10! I absolutely loved how chill they made it for the kids, and how much fun it was. We will definitely be going back!
