13 Stories Haunted House (http://www.13storieshauntedhouse.com)
54,000 sq ft. of pure terror! Scene quality and detail, Hollywood would be impressed. “Legend has it that there is a 13 Story tall haunted house so horrifying that you have to sign a waiver to get in. They say you get your money back if you make it all the way to the end. They say they have rats, spiders, snakes, roaches and even clowns. They say the monsters touch you and have been known to throw you out of windows. They say it is an experience so terrifying many people don’t make it all the way through…” Rated by USA Today as one of the top 10 extreme attractions in America.
Paranoia Haunted House (http://www.paranoiahaunt.com)
Special effects like no other, with live actors, Paranoia Haunted House is one for the books! “Anthony Adams a month ago–You can tell the Paranoia staff has spent a lot of time and money to make this the best haunted house on the east coast. All of the characters are realistic and scary. I went with my friends and two of them were curled up on the floor screaming before we left, another was clinched on to my arm the whole time. I don’t EVER get scared and I was shaking at the knees when we left. Paranoia is the perfect name because you will leave looking over your shoulder the whole time on your drive home.” (Google Review)
Sinister Suites Review (http://www.sinistersuites.com)
Five stories and sixty-thousand square feet, originally called the Griffin hotel. Sinister Suites was built-in 1910, over 100 years old! You can almost guarantee there are some haunts. The place if filled with sixty luxurious rooms with a grand ballroom like no other. It closed it’s doors in the 70’s then opend up in 2013 as the Sinister Suites Hotel . From the hotel being first run by a “freak show” to a “Poor Man’s Story” (you can find these stories on the Sinister Suites website) you can surely bet that this place will go down in history even before it was turned into an local entertainment site. According to the website “This is a mind altering and tramatic event”
Review: Holy Crap!!! – 10/13/2015 This place is one of the most amazing haunted houses I’ve been too and I’ve been to a lot. If you like the old time scares more than all the special effects and animatronics then this is the place for you. These scare actors are some of the best in the business!!! This place is amazing!!!! It’s got to be in the top 10 easily!!!!!!!!! Bring a extra pair of underwear , you just might need them…..” Google Review
The Haunted Forest (https://www.facebook.com/The-Haunted-Forest-276207469066623/)
Considering I work there on weekends during the month of October, I thought it would only be fair that we do a local venue. That being said, besides from working there, I have walked through myself, which unlike most haunted venues it took awhile (15-20 minutes) which is fortunate because it allows the full experience. From screaming nurses to chainsaws and clowns you will get the full fright!
