The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park has traditionally thrown a Halloween bash year after year that attracts many. Its events typically sell out within days of releasing tickets, so this year get ready as tickets go on sale Tuesday, September 1st.

The Stanley Hotel is dubbed one of the most haunted places in America and it even inspired Stephen King to write "The Shining." It only took a stay of one night to inspire King’s third major work and first hard-cover bestseller.

This Halloween, the tradition of offering a frightful experience continues at the 1909 hotel. Expect “3 Nights of Fright,” including the:

  • Murder Mystery Dinner – Friday, October 23, 2015
    The frightfully suspenseful evening features a top theater act and a 4-course meal in the notoriously haunted MacGregor Ballroom.

  • The Shining Ball – Saturday, October 24, 2015
    This flagship costume party event has traditionally featured some of the most detailed costumes ranging from Shining-themed custom garb to nightmarish creations. It’s an evening that’ll be filled with music, food, drinks, horror and dancing.

  • Halloween Masquerade Party – Saturday, October 31, 2015
    For the wildest Halloween costume party in Northern Colorado, this is it! Guests come from across the country for the experience and there’s no better night to experience the hauntings of The Stanley Hotel than on Halloween night!

The Stanley Hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a member of Historic Hotels of America. It’s also a prominent fixture to Estes Park while it continues its long history of the unexplained.
