Outside area of The Haunted Basement at Rosedale Mall

Looking for a last minute haunted attraction? The Haunted Basement is located in the Rosedale Mall, making it a good option if you do not want to travel far. It occupies the lower level of Herbergers’ previous space. Despite the spirit of Herbergers lingering, once you get inside there is a different atmosphere. When my friends and I went there were a few security measures at the entrance, but the procedures did not take long. People enter the scare space in groups of 2, but there’s a good chance you’ll run into your friends. In my opinion the scare experience is fun and not too frightening. However if you do get too scared you can opt out by using the safe word. There’s lots of chances to interact with the actors, which can result in fun conversations. Something I found interesting was the smells inside, which adds another layer to the experience. Personally I did not find the 15+ show scary, but I did enjoy it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to go to a haunted attraction before Halloween.


A few things to know before you go: you need to be 15+ with parental permission to go to the no-touch experience, you need to wear closed toe shoes, and you may get dirty. To find out more you can visit
