HERE ARE 4 OF THE BEST HAUNTED HOUSES IN AMERICA
If you’re a fan of frights then this is your favorite time of year. While you relish the opportunity to curl up on a dark and stormy night to watch your favorite horror flick, sometimes you want something a little more … up close and personal.
Travel can help you find that.
The country is loaded with amazing haunted houses from Portland, Oregon, to Portland, Maine, and these are some of our favorites. We know you'll love them too, so accept a travel assignment nearby and pay one or all a visit. You’ll be horrified you did.
Hundred Acres Manor
Located in the Pittsburgh area, Hundred Acres Manor is a must for this list. Why? Because it’s essentially six haunted houses in one. Featuring three new attractions this year and over a mile of frights, there’s a reason Hundred Acres Manor is routinely named one of the top horror attractions in the nation year after year.
The Haunted Hotel
San Diego is a lovely city to visit as a traveler, unless you’re staying at the Haunted Hotel. The alleys are loaded with zombies, the subway with clowns and the Hellevator only seems to go down. This haunted house even has the proud distinction of being sued by a guest because it left him too scared.
With four stories of fright, Erebus — located in Pontiac, Michigan — held the Guinness World Record as the largest walk-through haunted attraction from 2005-2009. However, with a whole host of monsters, narrowing walls and other hazards hunting you the entire way, how much actual walking you will do is open to debate.
Terror Behind the Walls
Is there a better setting for a haunted house than an abandoned prison? We don’t think so and neither does Eastern Pennsylvania's Terror Behind the Walls. The idea of feeling the doors shut behind you, locking you inside these 30-foot walls, is frightening enough. However, once you step inside the prison, you could be grabbed, lost down a hidden passageway or even separated from your group. This is not for the faint of heart.
