6. The Beast and The Edge of Hell -Kansas City, MO

It is one of the largest haunted houses in the country featuring elaborate sets, state of the art technology, a slew of talented actors and an open floor format. What this means is that monsters come at you from all directions, keeping you scared and jumping the entire time. Prepare to get lost in the fog, roam in the real life werewolf forest and try to find your way through the maze. Your heart may just stop on the exhilarating 4-story straight chute slide at the end. The Edge of Hell on the other hand is a converted five-story warehouse that offers old-fashioned high impact scare techniques including vampires, monsters and a real live 20-foot anaconda. These haunted houses are generally way too scary for anyone under the age of 10, or those who fear claustrophobia, snakes or are just downright wimps.

5. Bennett’s Curse -Baltimore, MD

You won’t find just one or two haunted attractions here; this 40,000 square foot space actually boasts FOUR haunted houses. First, walk through the Medieval Underworld, a journey takes you to the darkest and most disturbing world of the medieval abyss, complete with torture, dungeon cells and room after room of terrifying monsters. The Sanctuary of Insanity is the most disturbing of the houses, featuring an asylum with the most criminally insane patients, plush black hallways, a maze of prison cells and pulse-pounding music. Then there is the 3D haunted house, known as Inferno 3D, offering visitors the chance to immerse themselves fully into one of the most feared places imaginable, the depths of hell. You will enter the circles of greed and violence and gluttony, while confronting monsters, demons and other hideous creatures along the way.
