Four Haunted Houses That Will Really Scare You

Halloween is coming, and that means the haunted houses are opening. People love being scared. Whether you’re terrified of haunted houses or have a lasting love affair, these four haunted houses are some of the best in the country and guaranteed to entertain.

First, The Netherworld in Atlanta, Georgia prides itself on its realistic costuming. Ferocious beasties will chase you out to your car. Be on the lookout for a ravenous 17-foot gargoyle, or you might be its next prey. Each year The Netherworld features a different theme. But with rooms named The Mangler, The Acid Room, The Drowning Tank, and The Flesh Compactor….this probably isn’t a family affair.

The Headless Horseman Hayride and Haunted Houses
in Ulster Park, New York isn’t for children. Situated on forty-five acres of forested property, this venue supports 8 different attractions including a hayride, a corn maze, 5 haunted houses, 4 eateries, a haunted walk, and a haunted show.  You’ll find professional special effects, pyrotechnics and illusions.  New for 2010 are the Night Shade Nursery & Greenhouse and the Crow Hollow Harbor, which includes three 40-foot haunted fishing boats.  Mixed in with the talented actors you’ll find stilt walkers and a side show stunt team. Plan at least 3 hours for your visit!

Third, The Darkness (part of Creepyworld) in St. Louis, Missouri is noted for its realistic special effects and set designs. It’s two floors of awesome fright!

Finally, Erebus in Pontiac, Michigan boasts the Guinness Book World Record for being the largest walk-through haunted house in the world from August, 2005 to September, 2009. With 4 floors of non-stop scaring and new, innovative set designs, this is one you don’t want to miss. Come early. The lines have been known to wrap around the warehouse and out into the street!
