Since I’m a bit of a SERIAZZ BIZNAZZ nutcase when it comes to Haunted Attractions, I thought I would assemble a handy-dandy list of some of the best Haunted Attractions by location – including Europe! Yes, I am thinking of you as well, my international readers, but sadly, it seems that the events in Europe aren’t nearly as fancy or as numerous as ours. 🙁 For a more complete list of all known haunted attractions, click here.
Florida, and California, appear to be the motherships of Halloween festivals followed by Pennsylvania Missouri, and New York. I have found an event in England and Germany (just one each 🙁 ).
I have indicated in the comments if I have actually been to an event. The others are ones that are spoken highly of in the haunt fan scene, but I have not been to them (yet).
This is by NO MEANS a complete list of every attraction in the world. If you know of any that are not listed here and think that they should be included on a “best of” list, please let me know. If you have been to any of these and have any thoughts, please comment! 🙂
If you own any haunted attraction and would like to invite me to come and blog about your attraction, email me. 🙂

Comments: This event comes highly recommended to me by my fellow haunt enthusiasts. This year they have a Haunted Hayride, Barn of Terror, Pirate’s Revenge 3d Mystery Maze, Pitch Black, Psycho Circus, and a Macabre Museum. New for this year is Escape from OZ (as in The Wizard of Oz) and Lost in Jason’s Woods. I’d like to try this one this year.
Address: 22nd Street and Fairmount Avenue
Dates: Fri-Sun and select Weds & Thurs. 18 September – 7 November
Comments: This is an old penitentiary that has been restored. For Halloween they convert part of it to a Haunted House. I can personally place my stamp of approval on this one. I went 2 years ago and can’t wait to go again this year. If you go, do not miss the daytime historical tour! Even that is creepy!
