There are Halloween events across the Kansas City area designed for any age: from haunted houses that will scare the bejabbers out of even the most hardened of adults (Edge of Hell, Beast and Macabre Cinema in the West Bottoms) to fun outings for the littlest of kids (Hoots and Howls at the Kansas City Zoo and Brick or Treat at Legoland Discovery Center).

This guide covers it all.
