Welcome to Gateway of Chaos!


Rated as one of Iowa’s best (and #1 for 2 years in a row, previously), Gateway of Chaos continues to provide a great Halloween experience, fun memories, and enough scares to last you until next year. Thousands visit our event, then head into downtown Malvern, Iowa to grab a bite to eat. The haunt operates each fall where 100% of the proceeds benefit the Malvern Area Betterment Association and other non-profit organizations throughout Southwest Iowa.  Come help us raise spirits, energy, pride, money and food…..and have a fun time doing it!

Gateway of Chaos Haunted House returns to the Mills County Fairgrounds in Malvern, Iowa for its 8th year. This year we boast a new storyline, new layout, and a new 3-D visual experience! We also offer a new discount thanks to a partnership with ‘Weendream, a nonprofit organization committed to distributing Halloween costumes to underprivileged children all over the United States!

Open for the 2016 season every Friday and Saturday from October 7th to October 29th, the scares start at 8p.m. and continue until 11p.m. or the line ends. Regular admission is $10, but bring a gently used children’s costume or two non-perishable food items for the local food bank and get in for $8. Bring both a costume and food items and get in for just $6! Each Friday from 7-8p.m., children and the faint of heart are invited to Kid’s Hour: flashlights welcome, no scares, just fun! Kids hour admission: $6, or as little as $2 with both donation items!!

Gateway of Chaos is a non-profit fundraiser, 100% of proceeds go to the local non-profit MABA, the Malvern Area Betterment Association, dedicated to fostering community spirit, small businesses, and transforming the Malvern area into a hub of creativity, historical preservation, and beautification. Come support our great causes and see the efforts of our devoted volunteers!
