Haunted Attractions

Come on, get brave enough! Grab a loved one or some friends and plan a night out at a haunted attraction. They are in every city in the US. Some have amazing themes that seriously promise to freak people out. I personally do not like the saw-mill type attractions with loud sounds and tons of blood and knives. It just doesn't do it for me, but there should be attraction for everyone everywhere. Let's look at just some. And, find ones in your area, here.

Best of list from Haunt World includes:


Bates Motel & Haunted Hayride and Pennhurst Asylum Haunted Attraction in Philadelphia, PA Pennsylvania: The Bates Motel Haunted House & Hayride is a unique haunted attraction for several reasons: The Haunted Hayride is located deep in a 200-year-old forest full of overgrown trees creating the ultimate dark trail even during a full moon. This puts customers on edge even before ever entering the first hayride scene. Combined with a digital custom soundtrack, pyrotechnics and continuous scares throughout the ride, this hayride attraction is sure to create the ultimate haunting experience of your life!

  1. I'd like to recommend one I've been to in Pittsburgh: The Scarehouse! It has three haunts this year - "The Forsaken", a traditional, old school haunt; "Pittsburgh Zombies", a zombie-infested version of the streets of the city; and "RAMPAGE", a futuristic Steampunk-military society ruled by a dictator on the verge of rebellion! (sorry for the plug, but it's that awesome!)

  2. HN--that's exactly what I want to hear about! I know Pittsburgh always does Halloween right, as do other areas like Michigan and Ohio. I think it's the upcoming brutal winters that make those regions more into the mood. Here, it's in the 70s at nighttime on Halloween and 80s in the daytime. Ugh!

  6. Dreamer--there are some options. I have a lot of friends who won't do haunted attractions. There are corn mazes one can walk through, as well as going to a cemetery near sunset and walking around, leaving flowers, saying the people's names out loud, watching darkness engulf it, a candlelit horror movie fest at home, a walk in dark woods.... Well, you get the idea.

  7. warr309 hey just cought a trailer for a new show on spike network called Museum of the Paranormal

  8. Thanks for the heads up about the show. Well, it would seem that Zaffis got himself another show. He is a sad little man. It was inevitable that he'd take this little "museum of haunted items" he's put together and make big bucks off of basically pilfering trouble people's homes and saying their items were haunted without using a psychometrist to verify the issues. That man is getting way too much attention for being such a snakeoil salesman.

  9. Super post. Unfortunately, they don't have haunted houses where I live (Belgium). Otherwise, I'd be addicted.

  10. "Cat," I have to admit that for a puritan-based country, we do manage to get very worked up for Halloween. Thankfully, the young people drive the economy towards the things they want from the movie "Twilight" to Halloween gear. Holding your own Halloween party or wandering an ancient cemetery at twilight should give you plenty of thrills and chills. If you have a projector for movies, consider taking everyone outside with blankets, hot chocolate and project a classic horror movie like "Night of the Living Dead" on the wall of the house. They are just some options for getting in the mood even in a place that doesn't get all riled up about the season.

  13. I wish I can just travel around to Haunted Houses the whole month of Oct. I heard great things about the 13th Floor. I think there is one or two in Ohio that are talked highly of if I'm not mistaken. Usually in Oct the travel channel I believe has like a top ten haunted house list.

  14. SD77; I'm sure where you are, there's some pretty good haunted attractions. I would love to go to the 13th floor, if I had a date! Jeez! I'm so pathetic! We have a lot of good ones here, including one at Rawhide location and also Alice Cooper usually has one at Coopertown that is the most quality one I've ever been to. It's not huge, but it's truly a beautiful set and every detail is movie-like.

  16. Halloween is around the corner and it is best to be prepared with buying your Halloween party supplies before the stores become to crowded. Hope your Halloween is spook-tacualar!
