I no longer live in Michigan, so I have been in this one in a few years but it was awesome when I did go. Moving walls, glass floors, amazing costumes, multiple levels, and trivia questions. Worth the cost to go at least once.

Pennsylvania has some great ones.

One of the best is Terror Behind the Walls, of course — produced at Eastern State Pen, already a scary place.

I used to live close to another fave: Pennhurst Asylum. That place was fantastic.

Eastern State Penitentiary in Philly.

they converted a no longer used prison into a haunted experience

I’ve always wanted to go to West Virginia Penitentiary where you just get free range to roam around the prison overnight with a group of people.

Witches of New Salem in Dorr, Michigan. They have a haunted forest that has all of these little sheds that you walk through that have different themes. They also have a haunted cornmaze. It’s fun because you hop on a hay wagon and take a nice long ride out there. There are creepy people jumping out of the corn at you! 🙂

I love Halloween! It’s supposed to rain here though so hopefully we still get some kids!

Halloween Horror Nights put on by Universal Studios Hollywood is amazing. It’s super crowded and filled with teenagers so it sometimes kills the vibe, however the production quality is fantastic. 

In San Diego we have the Haunted Hotel which is a lot of fun. I have definitely ran out of the last two rooms as fast as I could before. They do a really good job of pacing the groups that comes through. 

The Trail of Terror is also really fun although the production quality has been  downgraded through out the years. 

As far as historical haunted houses, if I never have to go into the Whaley House ever again, I think I’d be okay with that. I’ve had one too many experiences in that house for it to be okay. The last time I toured the house, my friend booked it out of there because she was being poked at the entire tour.

I was,  years ago, visiting a friend in her upstairs flat, and waiting  for my policeman h. to come and collect me . We heard the  street  door open , his footsteps up the (only) stairs  and her front door handle was turned and shaken . He   didn’t  come  in  when we called out to him and when we opened the door, there was not only no one  there , but the street door was still locked from the inside .

She had had, and continued to have   many more creepy, poltergeist experiences in that flat which she had not told me of. It had been owned by an  elderly  bedridden misogynist man who died there, and the activity only ever happened when she was alone or with other females   . Hence her husband had never experienced anything and was hightly sceptical.

I’m way too much of a baby-grandma to have any desire to go to a haunted house. My husband want to go to Halloween Horror Nights one year since we live in FL but I am always afraid I’m gonna be too scared!! I have a vivid imagination with very vivid dreams so I know I would have nightmares, I get them when I watch too many murder mysteries or get stressed out. Going through a haunted house would be way too much for me!! I had nightmares about the flying monkeys from Wizard of Oz until I was 15!!!! LOL!!!

Knott’s Scary Farm is SoCal is pretty fun, a whole theme park to run through. I haven’t been to that many haunted houses, but that was a good one.

Ghost Lake at Conneaut Lake Park in Pennsylvania.

You get 13 levels of fear, and a ride on a roller coaster in complete darkness! Granted, the “scarers” are not that great but the atmosphere of the early 1900s amusment park gives it a creepy aura. All of the haunted houses are done in old, condemend buildings and also an awesome tour of the old Hotel Conneaut.

We go every year!

There’s a theme park where I used to live that does halloween themed nights leading up to the 31st at night. In addition to the haunted houses and decorated rides, they had very realistic characters dressed up as freddy, jason, leatherface, hannibal etc. who would go around and tap people on the shoulder or come up right behind them and make noises so they’d turn around. It sure freaked people out.

We don’t really celebrate Halloween here but last year we were in Florida in September and went to Universals halloween nights thingy. I am not really a fan of ghost houses/trains not because of the gore/horror but the anticipation of people jumping out. 

There was one house full of creepy dolls with their eyes just staring at you and then people jumping out of pules of dolls. Yeah I near wet my pants. 

The most horrorifying parts of the night were the ticket prices and the lines! OMG those lines.
