New Haunted Houses for 2017

New Haunted Houses for 2017

Lots of new haunted houses will be opening their doors to the public for the first time this year! Many avid haunt-goers enjoy getting some new fights each Halloween season and visiting a first-year attraction is a sure-fire way to get them. Below are just a few of the inaugural events you can try out for the first time this year… That is, if you dare!


The Fright Guys Harvest

Scottsboro, AL

Fright Guys Building

This attraction is brought to you by the mind of Greg Gamble, a nationally renowned sports artist. At the time of this writing, The Fright Guys hadn’t posted their 2017 dates yet. However, their website does have ticket pricing and other information available. Their Facebook page is also active and they recently had a 24-foot metal sign created for them (which looks awesome, btw)!


Ominous Descent

Bartow, FL

Ominous Descent Building

This is Central Florida’s newest indoor AND outdoor haunted attraction! Just their building alone looks disturbing enough, not to mention after reading their creepy backstory (which can be found on their website).


Blood Moon

Tamaroa, IL

Originally, we thought Blood Moon was going to open in 2016, but they were unable to do so. We still haven’t seen any 2017 dates, but Blood Moon is working away on their scenes and regularly posting updates on their Facebook page. There is also a Facebook group where you can follow their progress. This place looks like it’s going to be huge and very unique! We can’t wait to see their sign at night!
