Could You Survive the 50 Scariest Haunted House Attractions in the U.S.?



Slide 1 of 52: According to Haunt World, there were 4,000 haunted attractions in the U.S. during Halloween in 2016. Since then, the industry has continued to grow. While we’re sure most of them will give you a fright, these haunted houses take scariness to a whole new level. Are you brave enough to make it through?
Slide 2 of 52: Donation-based pricing BUY NOWWhat the majority of the population would consider a torture chamber rather than a haunted house, McKamey Manor is by far the scariest "haunted house" there is.

The 30-page waiver you need to sign in order to participate gives Russ McKamey and his "team" the OK to shock you, submerge you in water, and even give you unwanted dental work, along with other disturbing things we'll save you from reading. McKamey is currently under watch from locals — in both of his new locations — who want him out.
