South Florida Fairgrounds
Meet these handsome fellas at South Florida Fairgrounds’ Fright Nights. They’re among the spooky characters you’ll encounter once you snag an RIP “fast pass.” Tour four haunted houses, including Sunnyville Oprhanage, where lost little souls march down dark and smelly halls to lonely rooms -- don’t count on a good night’s sleep.
The Mortuary Zombie Outbreak
Enter the spookiest house in New Orleans … where something sinister is at play. A renegade special ops group has turned the old Mortuary mansion into a test site for one very creepy mission: to try a mutated gene on “guests” in order to create a super soldier. One of those guests might be … you.
Creatures of the Night
Crash a family-friendly party at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo. The annual Zoo Boo, now called Creatures ofthe Night, showcases animals at night in scare zones and ends with a ghoulish dance party.
Brush shoulders with some very creepy party guests at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. Universal Studios transforms into one of the largest Halloween events in the U.S., showcasing haunted houses, freaky live shows and television favorites, American Horror Story and The Walking Dead, street experiences.
Gaze into these dreamy eyes at Scarowinds. On select Saturdays in September and October, Carowinds amusement park transforms into the premier Halloween event of the Carolinas. See a shock fest of thrills and chills unfold across the nearly 400-acre amusement park, featuring 16 haunted attractions, from London Terror to Zombie High, along with 500 monsters, vampires and ghouls who roam nearby.
What’s lurking behind these windows? Find out at the St. Louis’ The Darkness. The haunted house sees one big renovation every year – costing as much as $1 million. Attractions include a haunted house, scare zone, monster museum and laser tag.
Ripley's Haunted Adventure
At Ripley’s Haunted Adventure in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, a multimillion-dollar haunted house is ready to greet visitors like you. And what could be more inviting than a bullet-ridden face standing at a doorway … a bearded man in a top hat who looks like death warmed over … and a room filled with stacks of coffins?
Six Flags Fright Fest
This way, me hearties. With 13 locations across North America, from Montreal to LA, Six Flags Fright Fest offers plenty of venues to get your spook on. Among the creepy attractions, prepare yourself to meet the evil pirate Captain Corpius, who haunts the watery areas of Six Flags Over Texas.
Magnolia Plantation Family Fright Night
Take a ride through spooky fun at Magnolia Plantation. For the past five years, this genteel Southern plantation in Charleston, S.C., has transformed itself into a series of family fright nights the last two weekends in October, with haunted train rides, a costume contest and more.
Knott’s Scary Farm
Knott’s Scary Farm is the place for chills this Halloween. Voted the “World’s Best Halloween Theme Park” by TopHaunts.com, the annual event, which sees Knott’s Berry Farm turned into a park of horrors, boasts 10 mazes, five scare zones and 14 thrill rides in what is already Southern California’s largest Halloween theme park experience.
How about a hug? Head to Vegas for Fright Dome and prepare for some horrifying fun, spread across 200,000 square feet at Circus Circus Hotel. Created by hauntrepreneur Jason Egan, the five night horror fest boasts six haunted houses, five scare zones, and 25 rides and attractions, which in years past have lured everyone from David Copperfield to Elvira.
