10 New England Halloween Haunted Houses and Attractions

Frightening Happenings Await in New England!


From sprawling screamparks to trails through ghoul-infested woods, New England is your destination for spine-tingling fun each Halloween season. Scare yourself silly in 2013 at one of these 10 popular New England haunted houses, haunted hayrides or spooky attractions.

1. Asylum of Horror

The name alone is enough to scare me. If you're feeling brave, head to Fall River, Massachusetts, for a visit to this haunted house that bills itself as "the next level in ultimate horror." Even the Asylum of Horror Web site is creepy! I've never seen a blood-spattered Facebook icon before!

2. Field of Screams

Head for West Greenwich, Rhode Island, and experience three scary attractions for the price of one at Field of Screams including a haunted hayride, the Haunted Insane Asylum and 4-D Cirque du Souls. Request a discount coupon online before you go. Or, save even more if you arrive wearing a great Halloween costume.

3. Harvest of Haunts

Be prepared to be scared as you set out aboard the horse-drawn Wagon of Fear at Charmingfare Farm in Candia, New Hampshire, this Halloween season. It's just one of the four scary Harvest of Haunts attractions you'll enjoy for one price at this farm, which is also home to the Barn of the Dead, the Infested Corn Field and the Ride Into the Bog. Purchase your tickets online in advance to guarantee admission.

4. Harvest of Horrors

Harvest of Horrors has been reinvented as a haunted hayride and walking trail through the woods at a farm in East Falmouth, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod.

5. Haunted Acres

Head to Candia, New Hampshire, to tour this scary haunted ghost town at Liquid Planet Water Park. There are five terrifying attractions to explore, plus the new Area 52. Before you go, play Zombie Shoot-out on the Haunted Acres Web site to earn a discount coupon.

6. Haunted Labyrinth

Visit Haunted Labyrinth, an elaborate haunted house in Cranston, Rhode Island, for a terrifying time. 2013 marks Haunted Labyrinth's 28th season of scaring the pants off visitors for a good cause: Rejoice in Hope Youth Center.

7. Haunted Overload

Can a New Hampshire farm be transformed into one of America's best haunted Halloween attractions while raising funds to support the Humane Society? Visit Haunted Overload in Lee, New Hampshire, and decide for yourself. Or take the word of Top Haunts Magazine, which named this New England Halloween attraction one of the world's best haunts recently.

8. Spooky World and Nightmare New England

This giant Halloween theme park is situated on the banks of the Merrimack River in Litchfield, New Hampshire. Spooky World and Nightmare New England is sure to entertain and frighten you with six distinct haunted attractions in one location. Go for the Zombie Paintball, if nothing else!

9. Trail of Terror

This is scary stuff! Head to the Trail of Terror in Wallingford, Connecticut... if you dare! Proceeds from this outdoor haunted attraction benefit local charities.

10. Witch's Woods

Nashoba Valley Ski Area in Westford, Massachusetts, is home to Witch's Woods, a haunted hayride and screampark that will bring you face-to-face with witches, werewolves, zombies and other creatures you don't get to see every day in New England. If you need a dose of liquid courage, you can order from the menu of Scary Concoctions, like the Dracatini Martini.
