Haunted houses of the U.S.

The leaves are starting to change colors in Michigan, and spooky season is officially here. When it comes to haunted houses and haunts, Michigan has some great ones. As it turns out, one local haunted house has been named the No. 5 scariest in America.

The crew at Hauntworld.com has unleashed its annual “Hauntworld Top 13 List,” which highlights the 13 best haunted houses in the U.S., according to their tally. Hauntworld.com is the world’s biggest directory of haunted attractions, boasting more than 4,000 haunt listings. Hauntworld.com has been publishing it’s Top 13 Scariest Haunted Houses list for roughly two decades.

“Every October, thrill seekers travel the country looking to visit the scariest haunted attractions in America,” they state in the study. They add, “Today many websites publish haunted house best of lists, for click bait, despite never attending or researching any of the attractions on their list. Hauntworld is the leader, creating content for the haunted attraction industry, publishing the industry’s only magazine, Hauntworld Magazine, and how to videos with educational content for attraction owners. Hauntworld knows the haunted attractions and which haunts will make you scream!”

You’ll find a variety of haunts on this list. “This year’s top 13 lists includes haunts in real haunted asylums to others built into abandoned concrete factories to old turn of the century school houses or deep in the woods where no one will hear you scream!” Hauntworld states. “This year’s list of the best and scariest haunted attractions has something for every traveling thrill seeker.”

What’s more, many Americans actually make a fall vacation out of visiting the best haunts in America, so having a haunted house on this list could bring tourism. Read on for Hauntworld’s 13 best haunted houses in America, and not that one Michigan one is actually the No. 5 in the nation. Happy haunting.
