People may consider haunted house attractions as bigger and more improved versions of classic theme park horror houses. However, with Halloween becoming an $11 billion dollar industry, as reported by Huffington Post, the competition between thrill-and-adventure-entertainment venues has grown tighter.
In an attempt to get a bigger share of the market, haunted house attractions went through pains in delivering the spookiest walk-through places, they could possibly come up with.
The results paid off remarkably, as proven by these four top haunted house attractions in the US presented in random order. Overall, each one offers a distinct in-your-face horror experience to customers who dare get past the entrance.
Location: The Adventure Dome at Circus Circus in Las Vegas
Huffington Post described this attraction as a black-as-night creepy venue that indulges people's fear of clowns. Their Clown Overload Zone can send chills up anyone's spine, as groups of clown with eerie glowing eyes troop around visitors menacingly.
*The Factory of Terror
Location: Canton, Ohio
Impulcity shared that the attraction gives one full hour of imaginatively creepy delights that would make visitors scream themselves hoarse. Unlike other attractions, visitors get to experience the scares for 60 minutes straight; as fear mounts the deeper, they go into the structure.
*Location: Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Huffington Post singles out this attraction for its attention to visual details incorporated into each spooky element.
