Join The Scare Factor

Interested in joining The Scare Factor’s Team of Haunted House Reviewers?

The Scare Factor is a haunted house attraction review site and directory that lists 3125 active haunted attractions. Our goal is to provide professional, world-wide review coverage for as many of these attractions as possible so haunt seekers can be better informed about what to expect before they go.

Because of this, we are always looking to expand our ever-growing network of professional reviewers! Below is a map that shows our current Teams’ typical coverage areas. Don’t be discouraged if you live in an area that one of our current Teams already covers. Most places are pretty densely populated with haunts and, if accepted, you can work closely with our other Teams to avoid a coverage overlap.


Am I Eligible?

Interested in becoming a review Team for The Scare Factor? Here’s a list of qualities that each of our Teams have:

  • Have not owned or worked for a haunted attraction in the last 6 months.

  • Can skillfully read and write with proper grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, etc.

  • Willing to visit and write 1,500+ word reviews for a minimum of 3 attractions per year.

  • Represent The Scare Factor professionally and soberly.

All of our current reviewers are volunteers. We don’t get monetary payments for what we do. There is a lot of hard work and long hours involved, but reviewing haunts certainly has its rewards!


  • Complimentary tickets for you and up to 3 of your friends. (*Not Required)

  • Access to behind-the-scenes tours, exclusive interviews, makeup demonstrations, etc.

  • Access to trade shows and conventions reserved for industry professionals.

  • Be a part of the world’s LEADING haunted attraction review network!

*Note: Our official Teams are given the privilege of asking for complimentary tickets for (up to) 4 Team members at each attraction they visit while acting on behalf of The Scare Factor. Mind you, the haunts are NOT required to agree to this in exchange for their review and it is NOT required of the Teams to ask the haunts for this benefit. Each of our Teams are asked to visit a minimum of three (3) separately-located attractions each year to maintain active status. You should be willing to purchase your own tickets to three (3) attractions to maintain your active status with us before applying. We currently have 9 active review Teams across the United States, so we know there are people out there with the passion and dedication to take on reviewing haunted attractions!

How do I start?
