Haunted Garage

6914 Terrazzo Dr. NW Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The Haunted Garage is put on 3 nights every October with the final night on Halloween. Located in the Stoney Point area in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Free Admission. Can food donations accepted to be given to local Salvation Army (not required to get in). Actual times and dates are announced at the end of September or the first part of October.

The Haunted Garage originally began in 1977 and ran thru 1983. It was resurrected in 2005 and continues to this day. It is a labor of love for all those involved; which includes a wide group of individuals who range from grade school, high school, and college students, as well as neighbors and friends. We all share a common love of Halloween, spook houses, scary movies, and of giving something back to our community at no cost!

The Haunted Garage is known to be very scary for young children. We aim to fright with creepy visuals and sounds, with creating a foreboding and tense atmosphere, and by rattling your nerves with genuine scares. Parents on the fence with their kids should use PG-13 movies as their guide.
