DO YOU LOVE SCARY, GORY, CREEPY AND FRIGHENTING THINGS??? IF SO, THESE HALLOWEEN ATTRACTIONS ARE FOR YOU!
Best 10 Halloween Attractions for 2015
13TH GATE BATON ROUGE, LA
I personally am going to avoid this place at all cost, but for the lover of scary things you should mark this as a must see. Films such as The Reaping were filmed here because of detailed rooms and it also is used for movie photo shoots. This year the theme is possession and it show cases it by infested the house with demonic entities that will be sure to make you scream for mercy!
THE DARKNESS, ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI
The Darkness is considered America’s most detailed and technologically advanced haunted house with over 200 animations, 75 CGI effects, 100’s of monsters, zombies and man eating puppets and animated objects that grab and bite customers. It has been updated and now includes a haunted library filled with evil spirits, and the new Scream Zone equipped with a mega screen movie wall, roaming zombies, monsters, and demons!
EASTERN STATE PENITENTIARY’S TERRO BEHIND THE WALLS, PHILADELPHIA
This place is freaking creepy because it is legitimately a real place where real bad things have happened! It once was home to the imprisioned bank robber Willie Sutton and mob boss Al Capone, but today the old penitentiary utilizes its spooky surroundings to create 6 different scare zones. One of which is called Break Out and it is where the inmates and visitors try to break themselves out using barrels, ropes, tunnels, and ladders – just like they were really stuck inside.
FEAR FACTORY, SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH
If you enjoy the show Walking Dead this scare park is for you. It is located on 2.5 acres and features a post-apocalyptic setting with underground tunnels, mazes, towers, and two of the largest slides in America. The actual Fear Factory is a former cement factory and is said to be truly haunted by the people who have died there. The owners say that people should check out the site because it is one of the only places in America that the history is more terrifying than the actual attraction.
THE HAUNTED TRAIL OF BALBOA PARK, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
I have been to Balboa Park before and it is gorgeous, it is hard to imagine being terrified there. But folks are saying that when the sun goes down and night fall hits you need to leave if you can’t handle being scared. Horror movie legends such as Freddy Kruger, Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees are hiding behind bushes and trees just waiting to scare you. The main attraction here is what they call The Experiment where people journey through a horrifying maze filled with 3,500 square feet of freak infested terror.
HUNDRED ACRES MANOR, PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA
For over a decade this attraction has been spooking people and this year they offer 6 different haunted houses including the Vodou Bayou where visitors take a tour of the deep south and have to fend off stitchers that want your body, and priestess that want your soul. The other houses include Dead Lift, Damnation, Torture Bank, The Maze, and the Brine Slaughterhouse.
LORD CHAZ GHOST AND VAMPIRE TOURS, NEW ORLEANS, LOUSIANA
This walking tour through the French Quarter runs year round but is best experienced during October if you are looking for more of a fear factor. The most scary aspect of this tour is that instead of it being lead through a man made theme park, you are walking down real street, hearing real stories of infamous murders, suicides, and tragedies that have taken place exactly where you are standing. I personally think that is far more scary than fake zombies in a corn field.
NETHERWOLD, ATLANTA, GEORGIA
Two words: real life. The kicker here is that all the costumes took over a year to make to ensure their real life qualities. This attraction features the Elevator of Death where you and 19 others ride down to Vault 13 and also a Decontamination Chamber – this is one of Haunt World’s scariest houses in America.
ROBERT KURTZMAN’S MAD FX LAB, CRESLINE, OHIO
Kurtzman is a make-up effects master who has done work in the Blockbuster’s From Dusk Till Dawn, Army of Darkness, New Nightmare, and Vampires. Here you will walk through the alien lab called Freddy’s Tunnel that is home to Leatherface and the Butcher’s Room for a unique haunt that is sure to leave your frightened.
THE CORN MAZE AT OAKES FARM, KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE
And finally, a more kid friendly Halloween attraction! Here kids can follow 12 story book pages, called the Fairy Tale Trail, as their guide through the kids corn maze. Also the owners have included a huge corn pit where the kids and parents can play!
