The Northeast is a great place to celebrate Halloween. Whether you are reveling in the historic Witch Trials of Salem, MA or taking in the magnificent site of  the annual Pumpkin Festival in Keene, NH — you will find something to get your spook on for sure.

With that said, we like to be SCARED this time of year.



We’ll wear depends if we have to.

Scare us. Please. 

These attractions have succeeded! 

Here’s our list of scariest haunted attractions here in the northeast.



  • Headless Horseman Hayrides & Haunted Houses (778 Broadway, Route 9W, Ulster Park, NY).  Headless Horseman Hayrides and Haunted Houses has the honors of being named # 1 Hallow Scream by The Weather ChannelWorld’s Best Haunted Hayride by AOL News, America’s Scariest Haunted House in the Northeast by MTV, #1 in America (two consecutive years) by HauntWorld Magazine# 1 on the Planet by New York Daily News“One of America’s Best Hometown Haunts” by Fangoria Magazine, # 1 Outdoor Attraction by American Airlines# 1 Scream Park and Hayride in America by HauntWorld Magzine, # 1 by USA Today, and has consistently been named in the Top Ten Haunted Attractions by CNBC and AOL. 


9 Attractions. This is a MUST EXPERIENCE.  Need we say more? Read our review of this Halloween giant HERE. (Open October 4, 5, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 24, 25, 26, 27, 31st and Nov 1st and 2nd. Price = $39.95). 


  • Field of Screams “Where Nightmares Come True” (179 Plain Meeting House Road, West Greenwich, RI) – It wouldn’t be Halloween without a visit to Field of Screams. Enjoy 3 attractions for the price of 1 and one of the best hayrides – ANYWHERE – hands down!


Doom and gloom begin in the path of fright from the sunset to darkness, which the twilight prevails! Unseen voices whisper from the dead trees, a chill is in the air, an eerie how can be heard….strange sounds are everywhere! Ghouls, Zombies and Disembodied Spirits are just waiting for you to visit. Read our review of this amazing haunt HERE. (Price: $20 – Open Thursday-Sunday and October 30th). 



Terror in Rhode Island is a horror “amusement” park of sorts (sans rides) and offers a big bang for your buck, not to mention it is scary as hell! With 3 terrifying attractions, carnival games, places to grab a drink or bite, a live DJ and roaming scare actors, Terror in Rhode Island is pretty spectacular. You can read our review HERE(Open Thursday-Sunday and October 31, Nov 1 and 2nd. Price = $22.99 Thurs & Sun; $24.99 Fri & Sat).


  • Fear Town (1710 Fall River Avenue, Seekonk, MA – Behind Seekonk Speedway).  We loved Fear Town! One of the coolest features is that you walk through a haunted house and then follow a trail through the haunted woods. Pretty spooky, and let me add, one of the most UNIQUE and UNSETTLING “escapes” we’ve every experienced at a haunted attraction! The last few minutes will blow your mind for sure and…..bring you to your knees! 😉


I also can’t forget the creepy (and I do mean CREEPY) clown that seemed to be feed on my fear while waiting in line. Oh, and then there was a maniacal, rabid rabbit (?) that screamed out my name.  Don’t ask.  Fear Town is a massive outdoor haunted attraction located deep in the woods at Seekonk Speedway. Fear Town takes you on a terrifying journey in and out of the run-down buildings that have been hidden for decades. As you progress through the haunted trail, monsters will come at you from all angels (seriously) and try to make you a permanent resident of the woods.  Just ask yourself – HOW MUCH FEAR CAN YOU TAKE? (open weekends until October 26th. Price $12).


  • The Dark Manor Haunted House (26 Main Street / Baltic, CT) – The Dark Manor is consistently voted Connecticut’s # 1 Scariest Haunted House! Enjoy two haunted attractions in one. The Manor – 2 floors of special effects and heart stopping terror and The Graveyard and Haunted Village, an outdoor attraction with creeps and chainsaw freaks that will have you BEGGING for your life!


They ARE “The Haunting in Connecticut!” and only for the BRAVE OF HEART! (open Thursday-Sunday and Oct 28, 29, 30, 31, Nov 1st, Nov 2nd. Price $20). 

There is still plenty of time to enjoy the above attractions, but don’t say we didn’t warn you! 😉
