From the folklore to the mysterious creaks, your guests are sure to be on edge all night.

But, finding cool historic locations are not easy. So included on this list of Halloween birthday party ideas is a creepy locker room located in the basement of a church. The venue was abandoned in the ’70s. Renovators took this gem and transformed it into a cool, one-of-a-kind party spot. For a party packed with fright, head to a Peerspace to view this unique locker room.
